    You probably find me boring, AAS, but I really prefer the fits where you exercise some restraint. Like this one. And yes, please do go overboard with the outerwear :)
    Great smile, btw.

    Just saw the video and I think it's awesome. It respects the spirit of tweed as active wear. I just got back from 4 hours of biking in tweed for the DC Tweed Ride and it was great. It was bitingly cold at times but my tweed outfit came through and kept me warm and comfortable (though it was perhaps inappropriate for the indoors party afterwards).

    Not at all, I love your stuff. You use lots of patterns and textures in your fits. I've seen a lot of rule breaking from you as well which I really like. I've been trying to keep the colors simpler recently, but I'm still not skimping on the patterns necessarily. Thanks.

    Nice to see another kiwi here - especially another Wellingtonian! Do you find it incredibly annoying that we have to get so much of our stuff from the Internet? Nice look incidentally - I am quite a fan of the "tie penis" lately. Your trousers seem a perfect fit - kudos to Crane Brothers for the MTM job.

    Thanks so much !

    Go us Wellingtonians. Yes without a doubt not just for menswear but good clothing in general, even if a store carries a good brand they often have poor buying or bring in stock that just isn't what I am after. I only really do the so called 'tie penis' if I am trying to be more casual (or really by accident) if it's anything 'classic' then I try to keep everything fairly clean.

    They are a great fit indeed, I work there so your kind words have more appreciation so thank you again.

    X-post from the last Friday challenge (black shoes and vest). Congrats to @Anden and @Butler for the tie and to all the other entrants for a mighty good showing.

    Critique is very welcome - it's about as fancy as I think I can get with what I have at present. :bigstar:

    Omigod omigod omigod - Pliny (for it is he) in paisley?

    Great choice of paisley though. Looks like ancient madder. Is that even possible?
