    This is CM, so I probably should have buttoned my collar. Oh well, I'll make up for it with some Mick Jagger:

    I think I might be channelling AAS with this fit. Or maybe DonC?

    Anyway, I believe we have a five-pattern bingo here.

    Not bad! Normally grey shirts are meh, but this one works well here as a bridge between tie and jacket.

    I also like your post-structuralist inclusion of the camera within its own image. Very self-referential!

    Cheers, thanks!

    Actually, the camera was so busy being post-structuralist it failed to render the shirt properly. It's just a regular blue BB OCBD. I do have my eye on a Kamakura grey one, though...

    Herein lies the problem - our objects seek to rebel against the paradigm within which we have sought to constrain their usefulness.

    I believe Jacques Derrida has something incomprehensible to say about this.

    OH GAWD DERRIDA my sister did PhD work on that stuff and she doesn't even understand it.

    (camera commits seppuku rather than contemplate the implications)

    I hope that pink/blue/navy/white striped shirt in the pile is heading to the Goodwill! Suit looks really good. Hopefully I'll see you at that trunk show.

    I believe you're chanelling a train wreck here. Everything fits well, but that's the only nice thing I can say about that fit. Why are you wearing a dark and very rustic waistcoat with a pink tie, lighter than navy jacket and light trousers and a flower lapel? It just doesn't work. Ditch the waistcoat, the purple socks and quite possible the loafers, and you have yourself a nice fit.

    Tie is tangerine, not pink. Maybe you need to adjust your monitor?

    Agree about the socks and shoes - they are too much. OTOH I still like everything above the ankles.

    Appreciate your feedback though (as always), even if I disagree with it.
