    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Interestingly, I love the fit, except the shoes there. Am I the only one that sees black chelseas as incongruent there? Just seems like brown oxfords/derbies/loafers would be much better there.

    Hey there. They're a small, local (I'm from Singapore) tailoring outfit. Lusso Tailors.
    They're pretty new and so don't really have a big online following or huge social media following so that name will probably not ring a bell.
    But they're just nice guys who run a humble, honest business.

    Thanks very much!
    That truly means a lot, coming from someone who is a far better dresser than myself.
    You're right though, I obsess about shoes quite a lot!

    Thank you!
    That's very kind!

    Hey there. I do agree, I'd probably only wear black chelseas with more formal outfits.
    But these chelseas are brown museum calf. Granted, they do a look a little dark in the picture.
    My apologies for poor photo representation of the shoe color.

    Here's what they actually look like.

    No need to apologize! My photos don't hold a candle to the ones you posted. I really like brown museum calf, so i wish i could see it. Thanks for clarifying and as others have said, great post.

    Absolutely. That was one of the reasons I said "other factors being equal."

    Along with light/dark contrast, contrasts of other sorts such as surface pattern, texture, shape, and color all contribute to object recognition and to what's called “perception time”—the amount of time it takes the brain to identify something.

    Perception of contrast diminishes with distance; certain of these persist more over greater distances than others.

    Cheers,

    Ac2, I really like the jacket, but it feels a lot more casual than the items you wore with it.

    Not really, and for the same reason -- the difference between the two materials is just not that visually apparent.

    I can't think of a lot of cases where wearing two textures of same or very similar colour works, with a few extreme exceptions (i.e. a black leather jacket with black denim).

    Sitting on a bench made from bronze cricket bats and wearing a herringbone jacket with a University stripe OCBD shirt, stripes on stripes, a rolled button hole, black shoes, a yellow shirt, matching socks and tie, cuffs on corduroy, and a button-down shirt (as well as several other things) which, since the invention of the internet, some people imagine are the same as Leg Before Wicket.

    [​IMG]

    The difference is Leg Before Wicket is a written rule and the other things aren't. The similarity is there's a lot of discussion about them.

    Brooks Brothers herringbone tweed jacket, yellow and white University stripe OCBD shirt, BB#1 stripe tie and socks, home made William Morris Daisy pocket square, L L Bean cord trousers, and Allen-Edmonds for Brooks Brothers shoes.

    (Trigger warning for those who imagine these are real rules-close up picture below.)

    [​IMG]

    The William Morris Daisy pocket square was cut out of a piece of fabric I ordered from the UK over twenty years ago and never used, so I cut out a piece and stuck it in my pocket because I needed a yellow pocket square.

    Members of this group who go out of their houses have probably noticed, unlike online, they never get any bizarre comments about what they are wearing when they are outside.

    The cricket bat bench is in a local Academia Nut Grove and this plaque is next to it. Perhaps a more enlightened member can figure out how the cricket bat bench relates to aboriginal art.

    No dickishness intended, but, when it comes to shoes, definitely assume Thunder knows what he's doing...seriously awesome collection of footwear!
