Sorry for the second outfit today, but my working week starts today.
Do you think that fancy shoes goes well with that borring Oxxford clothes suit, or is the contrast to hard?
Is blue more versatile???
EFV - Nice look but it's a little jarring to see the contradiction between the casuality of a three patch pocket jacket with a three piece suit.
Blindingly understated outfit. Do you own anything that isn't rainbow?
Holdfast...one of your best.
Don, good all the way down to the shoes, which I don't think should be worn with anything, at all, ever.
If Crusty were to ever "trip up", that would be the sign that the "end times" are near!
I think that you look terrific in this navy suit. It is certainly not "boring"! I love the double cuff shirt, and I love the stripes. But--and I may be the only person on the Forum who thinks this-- the shirt does not go well with the stripes on the suit. Likewise, the tie, while very nice, is not the tie to wear with this shirt--in terms of color or pattern. In my opinion, a solid white or blue shirt paired with a burgundy tie would take this excellent suit to a higher level. It is truly a splendid looking suit! As Ludwig Mies van der Rohe said: "Less is more." And, "God is in the details". (It probably sounds better in German!) The striped shirt would be great with a solid coat. The attractive tie would be best used with a different shirt. Always, I enjoy your posts.
Agreed, Solid shirt and tie--> Great!
Same shirt solid tie--> OK
The current combo is pattern on pattern on pattern which is very difficult to do.
Ideally you want Solid, Solid Pattern. This allows more attention to be paid to the pattern piece as an accent or compliment to the solids.
Top notch bro! A+
I disagree, in this case the fabric can dictate the styling. With heavy tweeds its very appropriate to have patch pockets on the jacket, and Tweed suits always scream a 3pc. I would however, like to see patch pocket styling carry over to the vest as well, but that's just being greedy!
EFV well done.
That's too generous of a compliment. But I'll take it!
Thank you, gentlemen. With these compliments, I am bound to blunder, sartorially, at any second .
We'll see if I can come up with another entry for the Friday Challenge for tomorrow.
