    I'm a long time watcher of the forum and haven't been an active participant for a little while. I have to say, the fits that Roy Al, Alan Bee, Upr Crust, An Acute Style to name a few are a great inspiration. Whilst you all have differences, everyone that posts pictures regularly have a sense of owning their individual styles. You all look very well dressed and all extremely comfortable in your relative styles.

    I've spent a bit of time considering what my own sense of style looks like and it doesn't work with my current physique. Alan and his recent pictures have inspired a return to the cardio section of the gym and to a healthier diet. With that in mind, my meeting with a tailor is booked for 3 months time and I look forward to sharing with you all the results.

    It's a cotton linen blend, I think from Solbiati that Vanda had last year. I'm hoping they'll run it in some more colours.

    Today. I never realised that I needed new trousers until I took that photo, looks like I’ll be getting new ones soon!

    Also, any pointers on how to make this look better? Jacket & trousers could be too close of a shade to wear together I’m thinking?

    Edit: probably the wrong socks to wear, too. It’s a mess. :lol:

    Thank you, gentlemen, for the compliments, and best of luck with the diet and exercise regimen, steveabdn.

    It's Thursday, and rainy and cool here in NYC, a perfect day to squeeze out another wearing of something from the fall/winter wardrobe, before it makes its way to the alterations tailor (I think that the trousers should be tapered a bit) and the dry cleaner.

    Suit - Brooks Brothers, MTM
    Shirt - Hilditch & Key
    Tie - Brooks Brothers
    Pocket square - Ralph Lauren Purple Label
    Cufflinks - Tyrwhitt
    Shoes - Harris, via Barney's NYC

    Yesterday the sun came out late in the afternoon.

    Earlier in the day I had dug deep into my wardrobe to find this vintage Celine tie:

    For what ever reason, it has dipped in temperature at my office this past week, but I am still anticipating this will be the last time I get to wear this until next season. It is still my favorite suit however. And the shirt is pale blue.

    Suit: Ring Jacket
    Shirt: Kamakura
    Tie: Shibumi
    PS: Drake's
    Shoes: Carlos Santos

    That is a fab look, Roy Al. Love the grey striped shirt in combination with the suit. I have got a shirt with grey dress stripes. Looks a bit austere. The fancy stripes make quite a difference.
