    I like the color of that tie @MrChris, I have one similar but it's more raspberry than plum like yours and hence it gets a lot less use.

    It's photos like these that make me want to hop on a jet and get over there. And there's that watch again :inlove:



    A Mercedes and a Jag? Crikey! ;)

    Superbly attired, as always, my good man.

    @An Acute Style , everything about that combo is "win" except for the shape of the jacket, which strikes me as a bit boxy. (Although I believe this is commonly true of BB jackets.)

    Maybe a bit of waist suppression is in order?

    My guess is that simultaneous translation is Cleav's "other" job.

    Thanks. Yeah, it's a sack jacket. I mentioned on here having the waist taken in once and I was almost attacked.

    Trying out the cardigan again, this time with no tie/belt showing and a more country fit. Tie and PS are matchy; too much so? And is the white OCBD just as appropriate here as a blue would be?

    Thanks for the thumbs last week all. 2nd attempt - (suit is navy blue - apologies for lighting), would normally reach for my white linen pocket square for this, but realised it was in the wash:

    I'll attack you if you don't do it!

    More SuitSupply love from me today. It's still raining and blowing like a mofo here in Sydney, so my other set of rubber-soled, storm-welted footwear was pressed into service. These Loake Bedales are nice boots, but alas, not quite as sleek as my C&J Exmoors.

    n.b. - Edited for colour balance in top photos. Shirt is very pale blue.

    I will never understand the vagaries of the thumb... but I thank you all nonetheless.

    Is the square white silk or cream? Not loving the pattern much either way but cream would be a bit better. Do like the tie!
    Holy cap-toe-head!
