Too formal a tie and square for that jacket, imho.
Striped repp? I think that spans a few levels of formality.
2nd go at the FC. Good night. Some of us have to work tomorrow.
^ well put together although a bit bright for my personal taste, and socks a bit too matchy if that's a phrase. Love the shirt as well.
BTW is that a weekender you got on? Looks exactly like the one I got recently.
I agree with RTC. CP's tie - which is smooth and somewhat shiny, with sharp edges to the stripes - being too formal for the jacket, which is slubby and rustic.
The tie and TV-fold PS are very CBD; the shirt is rural summer and the jacket is rural winter. Kind of weird.
Two recent pics...both shitty quality iphone stuff...but w/e...the fits were decent
Formosa, E&G Cappelli Donegal, Drakes (couldn't really decide what ps to rock here...but the whole outfit was grey, blue, and brown so I thought a little more color would help and I've really been loving the orange/brown combo recently)
Trying on a Borsalino at their shop in Florence near the seedy leather market down from the Ponte Vecchio. Ended up buying the hat. My first venture into the hat game. Next purchase will be panama.
IMO perhaps ur pics would be better with a diff camera position GMMcL. If what SB says about your height is correct, u should look different than u do. Your shoulders less square, your chest less full, your thigs also. Camera about a foot, foot and a half higher would stop that foreshortening that happens when u look up at a thing- mountains, people etc
Very nice fit IMO anyway.
In different colors this wod be terrific IMO . Everything is a good fit.
S&&& N****, that's all you had to say.
Ooooooooh - I got featured on "Outfit of the Day"! This is so cool!
What other colors?
I disagree. I think that a repp tie (English rather than American, though, perhaps) with what looks like Harris tweed is a classic combination. The pocket square, not so much. But I like everything else.
You like everything else including the city shirt?
The return of the infamous green speckled suit! Nice!
English repp ties don't exist. They are regimental ties and AFAIK fairly formal, to be worn with blazers and such.
The only silk ties that IMO go well with tweed are bold paisley madders and those of the shooting variety depicting grouse or foxes. PS can be wool or wool/silk but never a linen in TV-fold.
Heavy weigh tweed calls for shirting with some texture. A nice flannel tattersall would have been perfect here.
Edit: and pink and navy is definitely not a country combination. In other words, this would have been a great fit if the tweed jacket was replaced by a navy blazer.
A bit old:
(on the right...on the left...on the.. anyway, the smaller one is wearing a french bespoke suit from Marseilles)
