    Kevin, I think you can can some great looks out of this suit. But as Alexander said - perhaps more as separates than as a suit. IMO part of what makes this suit so challenging is not just the color - but also the relatively flat texture. The jacket would indeed look good with cream or light tan trousers - particularly with heavily textured trousers such as linen or even lighter weight wools with some pattern texture. (Is this suit wool or a blend? For some reason it seems hard to imagine it as all wool.) Pair that with a crisp white shirt, a medium brown grenadine tie, brown suede shoes and a mulicolor pocket square and too much cyan might just turn out just right. Conversely perhaps the trousers would work as an FU pant with a patterned/textured shirt in tan linen and a white or cream coat. Or, you could just do as you previously mentioned - pre spill some barbeque sauce on it and get it over with. :satisfied: Just some random thoughts .......................... Rock on!

    Spoo - is your tie pulled or is it raw silk? Hard to tell on my smaller screen. I love the look at love the purple; I try to incorporate it is often as possible.

    As I believe Spoo is having a busy week I'll jump in answer this question for him. Hope nobody minds.

    The tie is a Drake's raw shantung silk. Unlined and handmade and very fine. I bought two from user Gyasih (don't know if he has any more)

    User Thinkderm still has a few of these available in B/S for a great price - I believe even one in Lavender - if it's still available.

    Not to sound like a salesmen - but they really are great ties for summer - very sophisticated.

    Classic is good, but I prefer women in Post-Modern stuff, or, if I'm feeling kinky, Art Deco.

    Thank you for your comment!

    The logo on the chest here is not coincidental.
    This is a special blazer, which is sewed specially for fans of the private club of classical style, one of the organizers of which I also am. Also, the organization of this club is directly involved in the son of Pronin - Gregory.
    For blazers logo was taken from the first letter of the name Pronin, but this letter is connected with several other hidden meanings.
    The letter "P" stands for multiple meanings are known only to club members. Needle and Nutcombe symbolizes love are sewn to order products, as well as direct involvement in it and very Pronin.
    It's fun club, in which participants have fun and try to dress elegantly, sometimes severely, sometimes with humor. Conversing on various topics and participate in various events that are associated with style, sports, recreation and many others.

    HF, that's another nice look with a sedate tie. What's happening with your tie selection? Will Pucci be back next week?

    lol - well, last Monday's tie was a pretty wild paisley print; they're still there in the mix. I tend to like wild prints, moderately patterned "flat" wovens, and solids for ties with prominent/rough weaves. All of them are actually pretty attention-grabbing, in their own different ways. It just happened that the last 2 tie days have been in the solid/heavily-textured camp. Never fear; I'll never "do" quiet. :)

    Please understand this is coming from someone who generally really enjoys your fits, but I have to know: Are you wearing some of your bolder outifts for work or play, and if it is work-what kind of work do you do that allows that kind of leeway at the office? And no suit is truly a tragic mistake, there is a time and place for every suit (as long as it is not from Mens Wearhouse...). And I think Mr. Blue is very cool (of course not for a job interview, court appearance or funeral...)

    Today in photos of the bag Berluti

    [​IMG]




    I bought a bag yesterday in Moscow provider who orders the goods from Italy
    About the price - there are notably Russia. Our prices for such goods are often overestimated by 2-3 times compared with European and American. This is especially marketing and customs in Russia. Very sad but fact is fact.
    The bag had a price-list price in Russia about 2000-2500 Euro, I bought with a discount provided by the supplier.

    Shoes on the photo today - it's Cheaney Grosventor
