Wasn't restraint without taste Cruiser's gig?
Restraint is superfluous if you have taste.
I hate that.
+1. 2 cool, 1 blah
I think the main problem with the OP is conceptual.
Ed has an ample wardrobe and also commands a clothing line, but here he is attempting to illustrate a style he neither practices nor enjoys.
Dressing should be a pleasure, but in his combos he's not taking any.
This is why we hark back again and again to pix of the DoW or Luciano Barbera.

This is too matchy between the shirt and the tie for me.
This I like more, but it's still a little matchy between the color of the pattern on the tie and the shirt, and plus I can't get out of my head green + pink/purple + pinstripe suit = the joker.
I usually stick to about 2 patterns - the pink/purple is acceptable for me but the last one looks rather comical.
I'll bite. 4 patterns.
What's the pattern on the suit? Maybe it's just my monitor but looks like a navy solid to me....
We are almost at the end of this thread.
Just a few more posts to go.
Well, I was going to comment on one of your fits, but you took it down
But IIRC, it was a tie in a neat pattern, and a PS in a different neat pattern - I find it difficult to do this well. In the countrified context that I recall that fit inhabiting, I think a big paisley madder on one (usually better the PS to me) usually gets a better result.
I'd say this is quite good, although some might quibble that the solid tie disqualifies it from this thread. Put some blue dots on your tie and you're there.
Tie is navy and maroon stripe but looks solid from a distance. The colors are somewhat distorted in the photo.
