    Back to suits, while the humidity (if not the heat) is lower. The Friday Challenge is the "loud tie worn well" challenge - to wear a loud tie tastefully. Today's tie is purple, and it's Charvet, which qualifies it for loud, certainly - tasteful, I leave to the discretion of the viewer.

    Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
    Shirt - BB MTM
    Tie - Charvet
    Cufflinks - Simon Carter, via Fortnum & Mason, London
    Braces - Paul Stuart
    Shoes - Bergdorf Goodman house brand

    @Coxsackie I'm in a similar situation to you over the ditch here in Auckland, "Nuu Zeal-lund" (sic). Where I deliberately try to keep my small business lean to avoid all the employee related "compliance" (resistance is futile, you will be assimilated) hassles and costs. Like you, I can wear whatever I want.

    Presently, I'm working hard to raise my sartorial game -- after more than two decades in the ICT industry's geek inspired (no disrespect intended to technically inclined brethren, of course) sartorial wilderness.

    P.S. I originate from the South Island, so your recent skiing missive had me pinning for Treble Cone, which is one of my favourite ski fields down under too. I will have to do something about it next ski season.

    Cool BK. Let's hit Treble Cone together next year in our DB chalkstripes, à la Luca Rubinacci...

    ...on second thoughts, let's not.

    Luca is trying so hard to build an image of hip and cool.

    To be fair, maybe this was driven by Rubinacci's advertising agency.

    It is a very striking image. The fact that he's a young, shiny-bald man advertising clothes also makes for a refreshing change from what's usually seen.

    We're also starting to see male clothes models in their sixties and even older. It would be great to see a campaign based around fat men. An expert bespoke tailoring house could really strut their stuff this way. "This guy is clearly a difficult shape, and yet we made him look cool."

    Back but not really. Still very casual. One new item bought during the summer. The polo suede Belgraves.

    Hopefully, there will be a book written entitled “Tigers of ‘14”. Just dreaming...

    G, I think those are the same pants I was unthrilled with before, no? There is no true full pic there, but from what I see, they look better in these pics. :)
