    Thanks :)

    I only recently acquired my Rubinacci stuff. This is my first time wearing this jacket and shirt. I like that the colors in Rubinacci's RTW are quite earthy - even the shirt! It's still summer here obviously but today was overcast so I figured why not? :)

    Not feeling the tie, SB. I know, it's easy, even cliche to hate on yellow ties around here but I'm just. not. loving. it. Being as you're prob one of my top 5 (def. top 10! :slayer:) snappy dressers, I feel a bit personally let down. Not to worry, it's nothing that a few Corpse Reviver 2's won't at least partially ameliorate.

    Talk about mixed emotions... :)

    I almost certainly would not have worn this tie but for the Friday Challenge. I can't remember the last time I wore it, but it was between this and an orange/navy stripe and I thought I'd go left field with it. I suspect I've made @clarinetplayer's day a bit brighter, though.

    Thanks jf - do you know what mill it's from? I.e. is there a tag on the jacket from the cloth maker? Just curious.

    Unfortunately there's nothing on the tag I can see that indicates the mill.

    Thanks my man! :embar:

    I never feel like my wardrobe is adequate but occasionally I'll see the pics my wife takes and think that if I had seen my outfits now in 2008, i wouldn't have believed it was me

    I really dislike your choice of shirt. It is way to cbd for the rest of this fit. That shirt would look perfect with a crisp navy or grey city suit. That outfit requires something like a blue ocbd with a generously rolled collar. I'm not a fan of the PS either...and I can't tell but it looks like your belt is black.

    That's the light I think - the belt is brown. Other points taken on board - thanks :)

    Calypso, you look like a younger, better-dressed version of J.K. Simmons's character in Whiplash in that photo. Nice.

    I usually thumb your posts but 10 years of living in Columbus, OH make it impossible to endorse any fit so prominently featuring maize and blue.
