    SS, the chalkstripe suit and shoe combo shouldn't speak to me, but it does.

    I especially like the first one, a shame we can't see more details. The suede color looks amazing, who made these?



    Why? Chalk and suede is effing great.

    Thank you! I use f1.8 for the aperture setting on the camera to get that.

    My father (retired British army officer, dressed most of his life by Gieves) from whom I received this and many other pieces of gentlemanly advice, most of which I had until relatively recently spent most of my life ignoring, would be most amused to hear that he either invented this idea or indeed got it off the Internet...

    Thanks Pliny.

    They are Lobb Towcester, they're more maroon/burgundy. That'll be my photography skills and the light....

    @Gerry Nelson f1.8? Looking at your photography skills it is worth delving in to this. Do I need to know this stuff? Is it worthy of the time

    F number is the aperture of the lens. Low number = more light will pass through the lens and give shorter depth of field. Compare to the pupil of your eyes.

    To get short depth of field (DOF) at any other distance than macro you need A a full frame camera and B a fixed focus lens with a max aperture of F/2.0 or lower. The greater distance to the object the lower the f number has to be to get a short DOF. I.e. a closeup of the torso shot at say f/2.8 will have a quite short DOF while a full body shot might require f/1.4 for the same DOF.
