    Being around people 6'7" and 7'3" could give anyone 5'10" a complex :). Thanks for the compliment, in any case.

    I expected they'd get a very polarized reaction. But it's what I was feeling.

    Actually, truth: I put on my cap toe balmoral boots -- even had the left one fully laced -- and the lace on the right one snapped in my hand. This was the (somewhat hasty) second choice.

    AS, the pinstripes in the shirt and the fine-wale corduroy on diverging lines has a jarring effect, and I think the shirt is too light as well. Solid blue OCBD would seal the deal on a combination I like quite a bit otherwise.

    I agree. I wore my blue OCBD yesterday though. :(

    Ballsy tie, Gerry. I guess the pairing against the heavily saturated shirt is a good way to go, but I cant say Im a fran. I think with a white/cream summer suit would be most ideal.

    Paisley is fine, but a different color like a rust or burgundy based paisley would have been rad.

    That PS looks like it has an interesting texture Gerry. What is it?

    I did not say paisley is not fine, I said I was not a fran of that paisley tie.

    There's a reason I didn't quote your post, even though I know how to use that function.
