How long is that tie? I think you need at least a 10 cm shorter one.
Ya do, do ya?

You don't like my face? Discriminating against ugly people now?
DonC got a pic deleted because he was wearing a WWI German military helmet for the Friday Challenge? Holding a 100 year old grudge seems somewhat over the top (if I may be permitted to use the WWI phrase as a pun without similar censure). Especially since it sounds like he did it a tongue-in-cheek response to the theme. If anything, I'd suggest Germans would have more reason to offended by a challenge theme chosen specifically to commemorate D-Day! More generally, carrying touchiness from events in the World Wars seems an exercise in self-inflicted unhappiness, not really much different to still being tetchy about Agincourt or Cannae. Would there have been an edit if it had been an Imperial Gallic helmet? Sure, Germans have a bloody history, with dark episodes, but so does every other nation.
Anyway, back to the present day, not only wearing dreaded navy odd trousers (brushed cotton) but also pairing them with a navy jacket:
Happy Wednesday everyone. Somewhat cool, dreary, day in Michigan. Went with the likely last use of my more medium weight blazer today as a result. Brown AE strands on the bottom. Have a good one folks! Thanks for all the thumbs and feedback as well.
Edit: Added tie/shirt closeup
CP, you look like Larry Brown's much more handsome, dapper, and sane cousin Great fit and great look.
HF, I have always loved that sportcoat. I would love one in that fabric.
Braddock, Crusty, excellent fits as well.
So glad to be back in this thread.
No, it's just you look so sad. Makes me want to eat a gallon of ice cream and watch the notebook.
I live this mang....
but seriously - this fabric is a raw silk chalkstripe fresco and lends itself very well to casual wear in real life.
Is that a Capelli tie from their outlet??? I wanted a similar one so badly!
Nice look - I have a similar jacket I also like wearing with the dreaded dark navy trousers, I think it's a nice change from the typical shades of grey
Celebrating "National Running Day"!
It's been a while but I was away for work in a very casual environment so nothing worth posting.
Sorry Crusty but this is the only outfit I have ever seen of yours that I would give you less than 100%. I don't like it at all.
Not so sure about the hanky here:
