You need a cap
MF - y u no want to be faye moose?
Haha, I have no desire to be famous, although I wouldn't equate being in GQ to being famous. Even if I wanted to be in a magazine, company policy prohibits me from talking to the media in any way, shape or form.
Um what? Whats up with that policy?
Doesn't this suggest that there is only a single combination that looks good, and anything other than that doesn't look good?
It also seems rather limiting. For example, I have a tattersall shirt that looks amazing with brown ties. Should I only ever wear it with brown ties?
As far as dressing for entertainment: you clearly have a lot of fun wearing what you wear. So I'd be highly skeptical if you claim entertainment isn't partially your motivation for dressing as you dress.
It's quite a common policy, and it often includes any public social media usage as well. Discretion is key when you're suffering from a bad image, and I suppose it's also for my own protection, as anything I'd say or do (such as being in GQ) would probably be used against me.
Those epaulet jackets are MTM, right? If so, have you ever thought of getting slightly wider lapels, a lower buttoning point and a longer jacket? I think it would look much more flattering on you. Either way, the colours look great, but a lighter shade of grey trousers might look more summery, if that's what you're going for.
SVB, I applaud your recent trend toward dimplage.

Just a phone shot a pal took on our way back from lunch. You can't quite see it, but it's a seersucker check.
Love jackets in this kind of check. Have to be worn with a lot of sprezz tho, to avoid looking 'old bloke'. Nice look overall SVB IMO (square is well suboptimal tho).
Brown on brown + black on brown =
Jacket buttons look wrong to me.
i figured that was the case. i was just hoping you were going to say that you are the CEO of llyods of london or something.
