    ^ Albert, this is possibly not SF-friendly, but it is crisp and bright and I like it.

    I was going to agree, but apparently his gf trumps the opinions of online strangers. Weak sauce.

    I was thinking it was something that would be right up your alley.

    Justin, I love that Panta tie, but not with that suit--too big a formality gap and too much incompatibility of colors. All of the pieces are beautiful, though.

    Do you mean the tie is too casual for the suit? If so I would disagree because the suit is a casual fresco fabric. Patch pockets, 3/4 lined. If it was a worsted wool fabric I would agree.

    Hmm--those details do make the suit sounds more casual. I've never seen a navy pinstripe suit in a casual makeup (it sounds cool), so I'll defer to your judgment.

    Its a very unique suit. I love it because it takes away from being a super formal suit. The fabric is more of an air force blue with pinstripe. I hate my photography skills because it doesnt do the suit justice.

    I'm glad you said that JK as I was going to ask you to post a full shot, it would be great to see how a pinstripe pans out in that make up. Though I wouldn't put that pressure on you :smarmy:

    NVM, nice work man!

    Ok gents I have a question. My Fiance and I are throwing a party for our engagement. I bought a new suit which is a blue/blue grey suit. Its a gorgeous cloth and I will be wearing a white shirt with a eggplant colored tie. I dont wear black shoes as I cringe when I see black so what color shoe would you guys recommend? The suit doesnt photograph as blue or grey a bit of a hybrid of both. I am thinking of my dark brown Vass captoes but want to see what everyone opinion would be? I could upload a pic however its a shit photo as its hard to photograph.

    Thanks!
