    Which look do you prefer?]

    I vote for lighter jacket/darker trousers - both fits were fine, but the afternoon one was better, IMHO.

    Had to go to court today. Have a long lunch planned with a very happy opposing counsel as well.

    Have a good one!

    Vintage Ralphie - tick weave, ticket pocket - what's not to like? Way excellent, Counselor.

    I just can´t bring myself to love these raw silk ties. Great wheels, though!

    Me, neither, Spoozy - raw silk ties always look a little louche to me - and thanks for the compliment on my fit today.

    Love the suit (I have something vaguely similar - yours is nicer), and as for the tie, any lightly lined tie with a relatively wide blade for the narrow end of the tie will knot like that - a double FIH with a Charvet will look very similar (if gaudier than your tie of today, RG).

    this is great NYR ... really great - who makes the shirt ... like the collar a lot.
    Thanks man, means a lot coming from you, as you have one of the keenest eyes, or two of them, but you know... The shirt is my new collar from Ercoles...just had about 10 shirts with smaller collars redone with that one.
    Is there a trick to get a long, slender knot like that? And is this a SF debut?
    Its an unlined Panta...long tie + no lining= long skinny knot. This is the three piece's debut, the two piece was ready and worn last week.
    I would imagine if the tie is unlined, and you make the knot with a pretty wide portion of the tie, it will look like that. If that is a Panta, they are generally 9 feet long, so for someone of Rob's height, he would probably be using a pretty wide part of the tie to make the knot...I know I do with a Panta, or double wrap it.

    That is one handsome suit - bold (to say the least) but you wear it with great authority and panache.
    Thanks Upr_Crust, a wonderful compliment!

    I have to agree. I don't know what it is about you, TTO, but you somehow manage some very difficult-to-pull-off looks with aplomb.
    Thank you. [​IMG]

    ... TTO's monochrome look is killing it...

    TTO, this is outta the park...

    TTO, you know what your problem is? You dress too well.
    Thanks In Stitches, I really don't know what I can say to this!!

    I concur. TTO becoming one of my favorites.
    Thanks !

    Great suit...no overly sold on the shirt, maybe a solid one or a slightly striped one might have worked better. Still very, very good (as expected and usuall.)
    I think the tie pushes it over the top, I wanted to wear one of the great heavily textured knit ties I purchased from MBreinin, but they haven't arrived yet, next I was gonna try a Prince of wales checked bow-tie, but the cotton Panta was calling out to me, it almost works but I kinda knew it was pushing it!

    shirt/tie combo a little crazy for me ... but your swagger is undeniable ... CheckBeard!!
    Thanks Nii, and also a belated thank you for your compliments on my 'picnic beard' fit, I really appreciate that you can approve of something out side of your personal comfort zone for style!
    I readily admit that my take on MC is not for everyone, but it is for me, and I think that inner comfort with my style comes through, it may be the only way I get away with some of my rigs!

    They are on the way, my man. You should have them soon.

    I think the fit today kills. It is a little out there, but that is your deal....and you rock it.

    Apparently night shots are not something my camera is very good at.


    Cool photos.

    Nice choos, mang.

    Based on the photos, afternoon by a nose. I suspect that better photography might tip the decision the other way, though. Any way you can add more light/expose longer, doctor?

    Nice DB, but where's the blog post so we can hate you for your thrift?

    I've got to hook up with this tailor. If I were FredH, you'd definitely get a song today.

    Nice. Appears more butterscotch than tan; is the color accurate?

    You need a new belt too.

    Very nice setup, but isn't the pants sitting a little low? It may only be the angel though.
