    so if someone comments on my knot, you better not open any packages for the next month or so. [​IMG]
    You're becoming crankier (and more violent) than acrid, Mike, and he's just this side of being a homicidal maniac.

    For my first WAYWN post, I figured I'd wade into the shallow end of the MC pool.
    You say that like there's a deep end.

    What color's the shirt, Fred? Looks like pale yellow with blue stripes, but my monitor's not very reliable.

    Dear god! Those shoes! [​IMG]

    Lighten up, friend. You always look like you're about to punch someone.

    And that's acrid's job.

    Nice! Love that SC. I'm so used to seeing you in sweaters that suit is a welcome change [​IMG]

    I spent 20 minutes trying to tie this unlined, 9 foot long Panta....so if someone comments on my knot, you better not open any packages for the next month or so. [​IMG]

    Knot looks alright to me! What shirt is that though? Love the gingham (? saw it on my phone so it's small, looks like gingham)

    also ctp120.... you gotta stop using that gorilla stance man. Straighten your stance, put a hand in a pocket, something! haha

    Isn't that just a front for being a Suit Style Facilitator?

    look at the waist on that baby!!!

    seen comments like this in response to PG's posts before. I have to say, I think they do his eye for colour/pattern-matching a disservice. Take today's combo for example; just because he's used a solid white shirt and a colour-saturated tie, doesn't mean the look is simple. It's patently a precisely calculated look, and the conscious effort comes through quite strongly in the crisp end result, and to very good effect. I would disagree with southbound's later comment re: the tie's formality conflicting with the suit. Depending on colours/width, a windowpane can be fairly formal, and this one is clearly on the formal end of the windowpane spectrum.

    Leaving today's look aside though, and thinking more generally, there's no way you would ever think he's a man who does not think about clothes, and just wears what a tailor provides. I know some here think that the best accolade would be to appear well-dressed without appearing to have consciously thought about it (Foo would probably take that position, for instance. Probably TRINI too, at a guess. Not sure about Manton). That's fine, as a intellectual position to take. But I think PG is a great example of the contrary position; someone who absolutely demonstrates a lot of careful thought about clothes in a myriad of little detials, and looks very good for it. I suppose vox would be another example of this position. The only aspect where I think PG's explicit conscious effort visible in his looks conflicts with his style are the deliberately unbuttoned collars he sometimes wears, because the two seem in opposition to me. But everything else moves in the same coherent, and explicitly consciously-driven, direction.


    PREACH DOC!!!

    I saw in your profile that you are a baggage handler, if this is true, you are the best dressed baggage handler I've ever seen, and... someone of your size must be missing a lot of fine threads from their luggage! [​IMG]

    Yep the shirt is pale yellow with a blue stripe. Thanks on the shoes. G&G did a great job. I have very wide feet (better balance) so they are an F.

    Fabric is 100% linen. Makes it more casual, but I like that for this color. Worsteds in this shade sometimes strike me as an oxymoron as it relates to formality, though in other shades of khaki I prefer them. Thanks for the compliments Mike and Niidawg; you both look characteristically well-put-together today.

    I'm trying to work with bolder colors without going overboard. How'd I do?
    If you're monitor-challenged, the tie is cobalt and the jacket and socks are navy.

    ...

    I´m pretty sure it´s only the pose, but your sleeves do look way to short. Can you try to give us a full body shot?

    ...

    The items themselves are all nice, not necessarily in this combination, though.

    ...

    Diggin the tie, is that a cashmere knit?

    The golfer:
    (wearing from head to toe:
    Dolzer MTM shirt
    Hepworth´s vintage silk tie
    No Name linen ps
    PLC cord jacket
    S. Oliver cord pants
    Hamlet suede tassel loafer
    River Island bag
    Festina watch)
