    This thread is good stuff. I know my look isn't as up to snuff as most of the guys here but this is what I'm wearing today.
    It's hard to tell in the photos I think due to the lighting but the suit is a very dark navy with blue stripes.

    Beautiful suit. The brown shoes and suit don't seem right to me for some reason. Slightly different shades of brown. Not sure what shoes would go better. Calf?

    Order #23276
    It is quite high rise, but as the waistband is 6,5cm high, it is very confortable.

    When it comes to rise, the higher the better in my opinion!

    Suit looks decent (though hard to tell with these pics and pose) but it definitely doesn't belong with that shirt or those shoes and shouldn't be worn tie-less.

    Rainy morning, but it is still warm enough for linen. Lots of browns and blues.

    @Hal Freeman The suit is one of your better ones - but that first tie is absolutely hideous. You seem to have quite a large wardrobe, albeit one filled with many mediocre items. You'd be better off with one great tie over ten crappy ties. Or, for that matter, one great suit over ten crappy suits. Quality over quantity, buddy.

    @blekit I like it a lot, but I'm not sure I'd wear that shirt with a tie. If you're going to go the BD route, a larger collar with a bit of roll would look better, in my opinion.

    This evening, I am supposed to taking a boat ride around New York Harbor, on a vintage yacht, the guest of the downtown branch of Saks. Meanwhile, the day is to be quite warm and humid, with chances of thunderstorms - not an auspicious day to be on the water, but so be it.

    As it is to be warm and humid, I've opted for no tie, and as I'll be on a sailing ship, I've also opted for rubber-soled shoes - wooden decks and leather soles do not mix well, in my experience.

    Shirt & trousers - BB
    PS - Ashear
    Shoes - To Boot New York, via Saks
