Thanks - and I agree with your earlier post about faces BTW, although perhaps the downside of keeping the face visible is an over-concentration on things like age or looks as opposed to the clothes. I do have a feeling that if I actually looked more how most men of my age in North America look, the perception of how I dress would be somewhat different... although there are many other reasons to be happy about looking young.
My k-photographer quit on me so I am trying to figure out the best way to manage...
I'll not post this on the thread better on PM, you forgot to 'white out' the caller display on your phone doodles, just so you know...

Noodles, it is remarkable and satisfying to see the difference a more comfortable and classic suit, and a decent pair of shoes, have made to you. Do you feel like twice the man? You look it.
One niggle: SF orthodoxy aside, I'd go for a bigger and/or more symmetrical knot with that wide spread collar. It's totally the right collar for you, but makes that oh-so-nonchalant 4IH look a bit meagre. Also, personally I tend to go with a patterned tie against a solid suit and vice versa - something I have to say I decided after seeing my own pics on SF and realising all solids is dull. Your striped shirt and the tie's texture make this fine, though I think a neat would be even better.
Anyway, this was supposed to be a complimentary post: Noodles, you're looking good.
P.S. Put your face back on, we've seen it before and we're not scared.
Very nice. Normally, I don't like striped ties on striped suits, but this somehow works.
Thanks, it really is appreciated.
No; tbh, I'm kind of a one-brand-guy when it comes to accessories.

Nice fit, but the shoes seem a bit too formal to me for the rest.
And the tie knot to match!
Normally, I don't comment on things like this since it's hard to judge what fits a person one has never met; but I think it is undisputed, that longer hair with a more classic cut, maybe a side-part (doesn't have to be very rigid) would suit your sartorial style better.
Thanks a lot. I have a long way to go to improve myself but I certain do appreciate your compliment and feedback. A neat on this shirt would have been a no-brainer but I just wanted to try something different, albeit it is a bit boring and on the safe side. I do not think that I have ever put my face up on here...
Bobby's is great! Did you go on sunday? You would have loved SoWa!
Thanks, Noodles! Looking pretty good yourself there. Also, for the record, I don't actually wear cotton dockers.
Must have been the Noodles thread. Either way.
And try a Pratt/Shelby or HW.
You know, I had been on board with a lot of your feedback comments as of late, but this one is simply asinine and useless. You were doing a really good job not being a jerk for a while. Try sticking with that.
If that was a joke, and it went over my head, I apologize.
I'm 66 on August 4. I agree about loss of context, which was really what prompted my query. I do appreciate the intelligent response.
I think Noodles' look is fantastic, navy and green is one of my favourite combinations. I disagree completely about the tie knot - I think it is perfect. There is a perception that a big windsor knot is necessary because of the spread, which is wrong in my opinion. Windsor knots should never be worn at any time - four in hand, half windsor or Pratt are always better.
As for solids, this outfit lacks for nothing because there isn't a pattern in there.
It's odd, people used to be scared of wearing polka dot ties and check jackets, now they worry about an all solid outfit.
