    Gazzman,

    With fits like that, you shouldn't stay away. Very nice. Though I am sure your socks are not for some, I like the look.

    I agree with the comments for the pic on the right. However, Holdfast's combination is masterful. If I had this shirt and tie in my closet, I might not have paired them for the same reasons you mentioned above.

    I looked at this for a while and kept saying to myself "this shouldn't work". But it does and it does so very well.

    Van Veen is right. Graphic artists generally work in the (Hue, Saturation, Value) colorspace, not (Red, Green, Blue).

    Converting to black-and-white means that colours with the same saturation appear the same. Van Veen was pointing out that the suit and shirt have the same saturation; in a 'typical' look the saturation of the shirt is way less than the shirt and suit.

    Color theory is worthy of a thread because its absolutely fundamental to graphic design and matching colors.

    That's Jack Abramoff. He's been out since last December.

    Thanks for the observations and suggestions With. I will definitely go for more contrast in the tie next time around. Unfortunately, it (contrast) is something I naturally shy away from for fear of being too bold. But my few posts here have made me understand it's a different issue. As for the coat... yes it is a local acquisition. Nick Lopez made if for me earlier this Spring. It is a wool/cashmere blend in a hopsack weave that makes a good year-round jacket here in Houston. Wears beautifully with little wrinkling, etc. I've been very pleased with it.

    Still trying.

    My first chino suit. I was always apprehensive wearing one to work because of wrinkles. Held up pretty well.

    How does the taper on the pants look?

    Even those pictures are poor, the suit looks ok :). But you should try to use a pocket square.

    Gaz, I like everything there but I'd personally choose a different watch.

    The Windsor knot really doesn't work with a knit tie.

    Agreed. I tied it, then ran out the door.

    I was actually going to start a thread about members who influenced the forum in less than 100 posts.

    Now I may have to edit that to have no more than 250 posts :(
