    In fact, I meant higher contrast in the outfit itself. Though of course not nearly as good looking as you, I do have a comparable complexion and in my experience higher contrast fits make the face appear more lively. A navy knit would already have done the trick here, I think. That being said, that olive greyish shade of khaki of your SC is one of the few colours that don't do a compexion like yours any favour. Too much like your skintone, but then when you're being ill. If it were more brownish or sand it would have been better, IMO.

    I love monochrome. By extension, Gerry and Murl, I love your fits today. :fonz:

    I find the bro love here kind of hilarious.

    How to get a face like RTC:
    Step 1: Fall off a bicycle at 50 miles an hour.
    Step 2: End up in the Hospital for a few days
    Step 3: Have a few plastic surgeries
    Step 4: Refuse further surgery and live your life.

    All jokes aside, I do have trouble with that jacket. I tend to wear it with louder shirts and PS', or with a loud tie so the jacket mutes things slightly. I last wore it with a red paisley bow tie.

    On that note, I need to wear bows more often. It's been a long time!

    Just for fun, couple of pics off my phone from last week. Out with the Mrs for afternoon tea then dragged her to The Grand Opera House in York for "An Evening With Sir Roger Moore" :)

    Nice one J, I listened to a Radio interview with him the other day, smooth as ever. You could almost hear the eyebrow raise through the airwaves!

    PS don't hide the smile away in future, looking good!

    Ha, very kind of you to say so Cleav. Sir Roger tells a great story and was very witty. My heart sank a little bit when he walked on stage wearing trainers, but I suppose at 86 years old needs must.

    Was wondering the same thing!

    I want to say drakes, but the tip looks hand rolled from the way its sitting so I'm not sure. Next best guess would be a neopolitan house.

    Pliny, that jacket's getting the love it deserves, but the "big picture" square is great, too.

    GMMcL, you always play with the most interesting stuff. You went really low contrast on the square, and really high contrast on the shoes -- I normally go for either the opposite of that, or for low/low or high/high. It's a cool thing to experiment with.


    This is a few days old, from a day when it wound up being a bit hot for this sweater.

    Panta. One of four in my first order. And I can't say enough good things about them.



    Thanks, doods.
    I was on the fence whether to wear these or my dark brown pebble grain wingtips. I think either would have been fine, but I wanted a bit more pop. So this is what I landed on.

    I can't pinpoint exactly what it is but this is my favourite of your fits so far. Really good!

    It's very harmonious and unfussy, while still having the sophistication of all of Crusty's fits.
