    This is what's particularly enjoyable about Boardwalk Empire (even if little else is these days). Apparently the show's costume designer (in collaboration w/ Martin Greenfield) pretty faithfully recreates period-accurate garments, using vintage textiles from the era. A lot of the looks on that show would feel right at home on, say, LabelKing. Some would fit neatly into the framework of this thread.

    Looks like the shirts are from Turnbull & Asser. Where did they got the suits and ties from?

    This pic used to be on Alan Flusser's website as an example of advanced pattern coordination. It looks good but I think it would have been improved with a blue and white paisley pocket square so everything wasn't so linear and a end-on-end blue shirt

    I'm against the trend of the last two years of making multiple colored patterns in outfits a competitive sport. :)

    I'm usually laconic.

    I am older than you, so I wear drool in a tie shape.

    It's a medium scale dogtooth check.

    OK, I would call that functionally solid. But it does count as a pattern.

    Shirts, ties, jackets, and squares that resolve to a near-solid beyond kissing distance have to be fair game as at least one element in the example ensembles in this thread.

    If not, this thread will feature a lower succes rate than WAYWRN in general.

    And that is a number that wasn't even characterized before the Hindu got together with the Arabic.

    I disagree with this, Doc. Doing things for the sake of seeing if you can do it is laudable.

    Didn't say you shouldn't try. Just that you should consider the alternative and go with what looks better.

    Anyone can pile stuff on. Takes taste and restraint to make hard choices about what works.
