    I don't do pocket square sans souci very well.

    I've been eyeing of the C&J Maltons recently, but those seem equally nice.

    When I look at them on the website there only seems to be black and chestnut, neither of which match these pictures. Have you done a bit of handiwork to darken the chestnuts or are C&J being a bit optimistic in their photography?

    Narrow lapels, so maybe not SF-compliant.

    The reason that I knew that Cleav's shoes were Westbournes was that I had wanted to buy them myself last year, but C & J didn't have them in my size, and, irony of ironies, I bought Maltons in chestnut instead. My Maltons are lighter in color than either Cleav's picture or the shot of the Westbournes on C & J's website, and I seem to remember that the Westbournes in chestnut were lighter than C & J's website's picture.

    So is there a discontinued mid brown or something?

    They used to do 'my' colour some time ago. Though no more. These were picked up directly from the FS last summer I think so I assumed they were part of a special order.

    So, yes it's not an oft seen combination these days.

    Thanks for your kind words Yosh, good luck in your shoe search :nodding:

    +1; you would benefit from a wider lapel, not that slim suit and tie...


    It's quite restrained, no? Or do you mean the blue back blade?



    Very nice!

    Re: Talk of shoe color.

    If you want to darken your shoes, you can always polish with a shade darker and go from there. IF you don't like the results, strip using saphir.

    Our wires appear to have gone wonky :happy:

    I meant the tie from yesterday's fit but I thought maybe you were referring to the suit not being able to be seen. Anyway, the tie from yesterday is a busier pattern that I typically think works (or that is seen here on SF) but it seems not to be ruffling any feathers.

    Cheap old Oscar de la Renta tie from the 'bay. Like? No like? Today was it's first outing and I felt like only a CBD frame would work for it, if it works at all.
