Thank you, sir. The best compliment I've gotten so far this year.
Just kidding. Thanks, CM.
A day of listening to music scholarship auditions. A very old, well worn Brooks Bros OCBD and a Suit Supply tie.
Many thanks for all the thumbs up for yesterday's post.
So did I win one?
Wednesday, in the midst of diminishing temperatures. The Friday Challenge is to wear a brown tie - a most unnatural challenge, from my perspective, since I have very few brown ties, but, never one to back down from a sartorial fight, here's my interpretation of how one should wear one.
For the record, today's suit is new, snatched from Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole at the beginning of the Xmas sales.
Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Shirt - Tyrwhitt

Cufflinks - souvenirs of Venice - Murano glass

Sporting our new olive zig zag knit tie:
Love the new suit Crusty.
+1 Love it all Sir
Smashing combo Upr
Seriously. Also, you're not the only one with a strong love for brown pants.
Crusty, and Braddock, most excellent.
Loving the zigzag, Braddock.
Disclaimer, this is the jacket I have where the buttons were not sewn on properly and aren't paired perfectly with the buttonholes, as you might notice from one of the picture, sooo I'm going to have the buttons resewn or do it myself when I have time.
Did I do the pocketsquare right? I was reading the good taste thread and trying to apply some concepts there and I thought a small bit of yellow will balance out the tone of the outfit, something like that.
I'm giving myself extra points for this because I used a tie my dad gave me.
I/m beginning to think I will need an overcoat today… And a scarf… And gloves… And a climate controlled space suit.
Whiskey Lake must be overtopping.
Just pulled up to show the socks, my good man.
Señor Crust, that's quite nice. This is almost CBD for you.
I like this part.
