    I like this FGU - on the one hand kudos for matching color in square and neck support, and on the other not so much blue, red purple and green together in the one fit, IMO. But if u want to sell the sax shouldn't u have gone with something understated? .....

    I thought u were Leo DiCaprio for a second. IMO a nice casual fit


    Gorgeous wedding attire Betel. I love the suit, and love the tie. (I'm not endorsing those exotics, but that's just a personal thing)


    [​IMG] thanks.

    I voted for u (and 3 others) but truly such a great line-up of fits in the Friday Challenge this week. I think Kulata deserves more votes- but so do Shen, EFV, EliodA, Noodles, Crusty, CD, DC, Cptjeff, P/P, Monkeyface, the top half of AAS, Nabilmust, Stitchy, Chocosa, TWD, Academic, Dreamspace & IanGP + + + [​IMG]

    Tristram tho- is there actually any blue in yours? And CD, what is that jacket? Dreamspace for best newcomer.

    Such a quintessentially Beacon Hill shot. I feel like I've been in that doorway, although it's similar to many other Beacon Hill doorways no doubt. Street, if you don't mind my asking?

    People get the concept.

    Example from my wardrobe. No lining except sleeves, no canvas and no fusing:

    This is what the fit looks like on me

    The jacket I am wearing today is also unlined and barely structured (just canvas in the lapel).

    Unlined/unstructured jackets are pretty common these days, right?

    I think it's garden street or anderson street. Took a long lunch and went for a walk with a friend. I also don't like what my jeans are doing in the first picture, which is why I usually cuff them. Hm.

    Used to live on Irving St, in my college days many years ago. Suffice it to say, the 'hood has changed a bit since then.

    Okay, you get it, same concept. I think the issue was when I shot mine I had just thrown it over more formal shirt etc I was wearing because I was in a rush.

    My wife and I went up to Saratoga Springs racetrack on Saturday. We had a great time. We got to hangout in the VIP section and visit the stables. I didn't win any money. I went with pastels and seersucker because it was labor day weekend. @sugarbutch I felt bit loafers were the most appropriate footwear for a day with horses. I bought this pink oxford pocket square from @arnathor 's shop on Etsy.

    Liked pretty much everything til I scrolled down to sox :(. Kinda wrecked the mood. Still a thumb for overall nice look (jacket is particularly flattering), matchy square and shirt be damned!

    I choose to ignore them so that I might enjoy your submission. :)

    Yeah, I wasn't 100% about the socks. I tried a bunch of different pocket squares and this is the only one that worked.

    Thanks. Are you ignoring the loafers or the socks or the matchy pocket square/shirt?
