Your pimp-hand is strong in that photo.
Great suit...
The only thing I have pimp-level control over is the camera, and even then...not so often.
Such a great suit and pairing. Hopefully it will stay quarantine clean.
Unfortunately on the night of its debut it got a couple negroni stains on it from Harry’s Bar in Florence. Which, now that I think about it, is OK.
Yeah and cool $600 shades - that’s “ballin’” as the kids these days say!
I’m not going to lie, Jacques Marie Mage frames are ridiculously expensive. That said, I’m smitten and and am eyeing another pair, specifically the Enzo.
First time i notice your vampire teeth, you creature of the night !
They’re pretty rugged, mostly due to eating expensive sunglasses after having no money left for food.

I’m not a huge fan of tweed and don’t need it much in FL but that’s a great example of how to do it, even while sneakily thumbing your nose at the daft “no navy strides” SF ‘rule’. If I was in colder weather more often I’d definitely be trying something like this, plus it’s a welcome change from the standard grey (herringbone/Donegal/marle) tweeds we usually see. I’d problies go for a blue rather than white shirt, maybe oxford or chambray as being a pasty blondie I find white shirts can wash me out. Well done!

You know I’m a shades junky UC, with a rotation hovering around thirty pairs. I saw those JMM ones a while back and was tempted. They seem like great quality with really chunky acetate but I balked at the price. Now you’ve put them back on my radar but I think I’d have to see a better deal before I pulled the trigger. Also shades, like hats, are very difficult to order without trying on as they may look great in a pic but crap when they’re on your face so I’d definitely want to try them on before buying. A milimetre or two difference in width can be a huge difference in how they look. Any idea where I can try them in the lower 48?
I’m also intrigued by the Curry and Paxton Michael Caines but they’re 56mm which would be wider than any pair I own so again want to try them on before buying. Tired of paying return fees on ill fitting gear!

There was a discussion recently in another thread (maybe the Random Fashion Advice/Thoughts one) about those JMM sunglasses. Seems the consensus is they can be difficult to pull off without looking like a douche (although @UrbanComposition certainly wears them well), and trying them on before purchase is essential.

For me, I treat sunglasses roughly and have a tendency to lose them on boats, at the beach, leave them behind in hotel rooms, etc., so I rarely spend more than $50 on a pair nowadays.

I found a boutique 5 minutes away from me that carries JMM.
As soon as I can stomach the anxiety of going into a store, I'm going to go try some on and see what level of douche I slot into...

It’s true that some JMM frames can be a little sleazy (in a good way) but the Mollino and Dealan are fairly innocuous and slide pretty easily across styles.

Just took a quick look at the website. They look good and simple, just my style. Thanks for the recommendation.
