^^^ Looks great! Nice tie and fabric on the suit!
Still warm in Houston
^ Superb! Jazz life indeed...
@Tirailleur1 that looks fantastic!
+1 on the cloth - Love to know what it is.
Thanks gents. Cloth is a Huddersfield Birdseye.
First pic is an attempt at a full fit shot, using a "selfie stick". Only partially successful.
Edit: added this close-up with enhanced definition, to show the extremely subtle windowpane pattern in the fabric (Cerutti 95/5).

@An Acute Style
- I agree with RTC's comment about the tie (perhaps a grenadine in a solid colour would have been better choice) however, not the comment about the pants and shoes.
- In the case of the later, yes they're rather semi-formal-ish, especially the Oxfords. However, the Oxfords are also semi-brogue too. So, they should be able to pull double duty as smart/casual without looking discordant and out of place, yeah? Perhaps, if they had a bit more brogue detailing on the vamp or a medallion on the toe cap, then your shoe selection wouldn't have drawn any criticism.
- Anyway, I gave it a thumps up as I like the overall ensemble, excluding the tie.
EDIT: Maybe RTC's comment was based on your SC being made from cotton(?), which leans more informal or spring/summer-ish? In which case, perhaps your usual preferred loafers would have been a better footwear choice and not drawn any criticism. Just a thought.
Who is this and what have you done with @Coxsackie ?
I like the whole lot!
Don't worry Garry, I'll be back to my usual dandy self by tomorrow.
I did need another soporific suit in my sartorial armamentarium though. This is it.
sooooo igent that you restacked your bookshelf between pictures....
I LOVE the look of your Kent Wang art deco watch, and have been considering getting one, but have been concerned about the overall size of it (especially after reading the review of it, and seeing a wrist shot of it, on the Worn & Wound website [pic below]): But in seeing it on your own wrist, Kent, it doesn't look quite as large. Watches of the art deco period and design weren't as large as the KW example, but like I said, it looks better on your wrist than on the Worn & Wound website. I'm still considering getting it...
I appreciate the criticism, and I realize that this very obscure style from the late 10s/early 20s isn't everyones cup of tea. I find it very interesting though, if nothing else then from a historical point of view.
As for my height, well I am indeed very short at 164 cm, or around 5'4".
