    Tan/gold yes. The opposing stripe is more like a charcoal grey.

    Today, it is supposed to rain this afternoon, and, in a fit of caprice (a state into which I am prone to fall), I decided that the theme of today's attire should be "cheap" - either things acquired cheaply, or brands lower in the iGent pecking order (or both).

    Suit - JAB Signature Platinum (bought on clearance, and even with extra alterations post-purchase - about $400)
    Shirt - Lewin
    Tie - BB outlet store (under $20)
    Cufflinks - London Badge & Button Co. (about 20 GBP)
    Shoes - To Boot Adam Derrick (Saks, on sale, about $130)
    Raincoat - Burberry (acquired by my late husband in London 1985, when the dollar was king)
    Scarf - Johnstons (from 1984/85, from Westaway & Westaway, London - a long-gone discounter of woolen goods - cashmere, and about 25 GBP)
    Hat - Weatherproof (Syms - $15)

    Thanks! Not sure what you mean by a "structured" tie though.

    lol Exactly the same for me today, although we are already getting hit by the storm I presume you will get later.

    I'm not so sure about this colour combination. Navy suit, dark green tie and light pink shirt:

    Funny, I'm was thinking of wearing the same combination today but without the pinstripes. In the end, I had to stay at home, so in shorts & T-shirt now...
    Anyway, I think it would work better if the pink wasn't so pale and the green was more saturated. Check out @Sander 's fits, I believe pink shirt + green ties is one of his favourite combo's.

    Light gray suit, pink shirt, and green tie is also mentioned in Alan Flusser's Clothes and the Man as a superb color combination.

    Remember, rain is the snow that shovels itself . . .

    Something like a grenadine or knit.


    Absolutely!

    Kulata,
    What do you tell your tailor to get cuffs like that?
