    Thank you all for your kind words and the love on yesterday's fit. I try keep my camera and tripod in the car when I have to go out of the city for meetings. I stop for a few minutes when I find a nice spot. I usually need a breath of fresh air after meetings. Why not shot a few frames at the same time?


    @FlyingMonkey

    The light kills your photos. Good light (preferably in the shade on a sunny day or next to a window but not in direct sun) will give great results even with an Iphone. Try to find place on the way to work for example. I am blessed with a very large south facing window in my office so I get great light at certain times of the day. You have some really nice items in your wardrobe that would get more love if presented in a better way = better photos.

    All the best

    Thank you Pliny. The forests here are amazing, especially in autumn.

    I'm drooling over those single monks, Gerry. How does the fabric feel on those pants?

    I agree with the comment about the sleeves and legs. The problem with the suit is that it came with working buttonholes which makes the alteration more difficult.

    Still getting a feel for what works with the hat so forgive me :)

    A little rougher than wool but wears very cool in the warm weather. Par for the course for linen, I would imagine.

    Actually this Shanty is by Conrad Wu - I've also got one in brown and they're both great for the warmer weather.

    This Plaid Jacket with Olive Green Tie and Pocket Square looks very dapper! Great combination, and the pants are well fitted.

    Agree that the jacket sleeve length could be slightly shorter. The tie, shirt and pocket square combination are great! Loving the fabric / texture variation between the shirt, tie and pocket square.

    Beautifully done with knitted tie against a small checkered shirt and houndstooth jacket. Fit is perfect!

    Single Breasted Vest under the suit looks great!

    Pretty tough to pull of that level of detail and you've pulled it off! Patterns, proportions, colors and textures along with the accessories work really well together. Impressive.
