    This is good but I think a double FIH, Borrelli knot or a half windsor would have been great since the tie fabric looks thin. :)

    My visit to a sculpture garden. Maybe it's a bit late for linen, but the coat was just right for the early autumn inbetween.

    I really like the look. But I still think it is risky to go to club with suit+tie+hat

    Just out of curiosity, do you always dress like this to club?

    It's because we're inscrutable orientals. We cannot be scruted.

    The shoulders are a bit on the heavy side, but other photos I've taken with it don't look so extreme. Anyway, I'm gonna overhaul all my jackets and suits soon.

    ^ Great CBD stuff. I actually like the more restrained combination more than your more flamboyant fits.

    Out to dinner last night...I'm sure the suede blazer won't be popular on SF, but I kinda like how this came together. The shirt sleeves look short in the pic for some reason, but they were there most of the night, promise.

    ^^ tie is tied too long, which combined with its contrast makes it look a bit odd.

    like the pants, shoes and socks though. is that a navy SC?

    It hits right at my belt buckle, I thought that was correct? It might look a little longer in the pic since I have my arm raised. SC is dark brown. What do you mean by the contrast of the tie?

    in the picture it looks like the tip is at least 2cm under the bottom of your belt, which for me looks too long.

    i should have been more specific about the contrast, i just meant that the combination of the length/width of the tie and the stark contrast with the ensemble (particularly dark, casual SC) isn't doing it for me.

    i dunno, the picture quality makes it impossible to get an idea of how the textures are working together, so that's something..
