    That's really nice suit, Sander! Looking forward to more photos of it. Not trying to nitpick, but have Miyahira-san diagnosed what causes that ill fitting shoulder? One of my coats presents the same problem (different tailor, though), but I have not had the time to send it to the mothership. My guess is a forward shoulder not accounted for.

    Yesterday. Too dark on the bottom? The jacket is grey seersucker. $50 from Uniqlo. I had to size up to get the right length, but now the sleeves are too long. The shirt is pink.

    Your pose, the color (and length) of the jacket and contrast with the pants make you look like a dandy doctor. Haven't decided whether this is a good or bad thing. I like the tie a lot, pocket square is a little matchy

    That fresco is looking lovely, Sander.

    It's not bad, but I would prefer medium-dark gray.

    I really like seeing your outfits AAS. More than probably I would not wear something like that but I like how you pull it off because in my opinion you pull it off rather well. To me it seems you are a really happy guy and probably funny too, and that shows. I think you are of the guys here with a stronger personality. You dare to wear what you like and that is that. There are people who dress terrific but it seems like they wear the same things almost everyday (not meant in a bad way) but with you everyday is very different. Although I do think that some of the accessories need to go... or use them when the outfit is more "boring" or less busy, but other than that keep doing what you are doing [​IMG][​IMG]

    The Dandy Doctor. I may have to start a new blog. I agree about the tie and pocket square. I had a really hard time picking out a jacket to go with this outfit and the pocket square was the last thing I picked. I wish I had more time to make a better choice.

    Medium/dark gray pants or jacket?

    Thanks. [​IMG]

    Once again, thanks to the very small percentage of the over 7 billion people on Earth who take the time and trouble to post pictures here. Recently, there was comment about wearing tweed in Southern California, possibly by someone who thinks that the Atlantic coast of Florida and the Pacific coast of California have similar climates. They do not. Coastal California is usually cool and damp, and is sometimes 40 degrees F cooler than it is 15 miles from the coast, and even on the days that it is warm in the daytime, it's often cold at night. It was cold and damp today.

    A stoned musician and I out in the cold this morning.......

    Polo Ralph Lauren tweed jacket, Brooks Brothers OCBD and tie, Polo Golf fairisle sweater vest, Squarextraordinaire pocket square, Orvis cord trousers, Gold Toe argyle socks, Allen-Edmonds brown grain Kiowas, and (in keeping with the trend started by Victor) Taylor Of Old Bond Street Eton College aftershave (which I think smells almost the same as Creed Green Irish Tweed).

    What is this? Don't know what I'm looking at here E, but it's pretty weird.

    [​IMG] Love this, altho a fit that IMO would be better sans tie, especially considering where u r..... .or perhaps a feather-lite slubby silk, or something less neat and buisness-y,


    Very very nice! Blue box-check blazer FTW
    Especially like that you went for the blue rather than white deco. White can look showy if there's too much contrast, IMO

    thumbs up to AAS. [​IMG] IMO u've stepped everything up a notch with 2 patterns or less

    You do know that Como is an area well known for its tie-makers, don't you? [​IMG]
