    I'm blushing :)

    Much appreciated, both as to the criticism and the compliment. The tie was sort of wishful thinking. Solid gren or knit would have been quite a bit better. I mostly stand by the rest of it ;)

    Definitely agree. Add a solid tie and you would be cooking with gas!

    I cannot agree. The tie gives a good vibe to the ensemble. A solid tie could give you a more formal and sober look, but you are too young to be sober. Let it to older guys. That tie is very pretty.

    Cheers

    I have a pair of shoes very much alike. And have a story. Some years ago in a mall here in Lisbon, opened a store called Milano, selling suits, ties, shirts, kniting (I got 2 great cashmere jumpers there for a fantastic price), etc. Everything was at good prices and of good quality. They also were selling shoes - though not many models - and I bought that pair.
    Suddenly, they closed, never knew why. It was strange because, at the time, I thought it was a good store and they were doing good. They just vanish.

    Cheers

    I bought a suit that came without buttons. A friend of mine debated whether I could use MOP buttons or not. He argued no, citing horn fits suits better while mop mates up better with sport coats.

    I think they look nice. What do you think? IMG-20190315-WA0045.jpeg

    Well, I don’t think the buttons are bad. However there’s something weird about the whole blazer. It seems it has not the right proportions. The button under the ps pocket seems to be too high. Or maybe I’m not right, I don’t know. Just seems not right to me.

    Cheers

    In terms of button color choice I think they look pretty good, albeit more casual because of the contrast.

    But rock it in good health!

    First time wearing a tux. La Tosca. Hard to get a decent pic.

    ‘Tux’ looks really nicely fitted but the casual provenance of the shawl lapels is crying out for a turn-down collar. Otherwise outstanding. Hope there were others in the audience who made the effort too but well done for preserving a wonderful tradition.
