    uncle,

    im not a big fan of this pic. pre SF. the sleeves and cuffs have since been shortened. and the loafers are questionale at best with the suit.

    but since you asked, for you i posted it.

    That's really really nice. I'm thinking of a similar suit I have seen in Corneliani navy blue but with light pink stripes (almost looks white)

    And those shoes looks almost like the GG you have, right? Or am I lost here...

    Well, I COULD post a picture from the shoulders down. But in this case I'll pass. As I'm pretty thrown together today - how about a description?

    Canali navy blue gabardene suit (nicely cut - a bit on the slim side but not trendy.)
    Navy and White gingham shirt, french cuffs, midcentury modernist sterling links - no tie (GASP!)
    White, Navy, tan handpainted pocket square.
    You've seen the socks and shoes.

    I will say that I was called out today by one of our hoytie toytie art consultants as looking very 'European'. Which I took as a compliment.

    But all in all I have to say these socks with the green shoes just aren't working for me. Had I done a different sock such as a Navy Birdseye as you suggested I woulda said it all worked in my own perosonal 'business louche' sorta way. But was certainly not anything 'proper'.

    Sorry but you are REALLY lost. :D No G&G loafers for me. Although I'd be happy to accept a pair as a gift, size 7 UK please! I"ll happily accept any color. :nodding:

    Could you be thinking of these lowley C&J Mertons? They are shaped more or less like Stitchy's hoytie toytie Zegna COUTURE shoes. :D

    Watcha drinkin'? You do know that I only allow the consumption of Martinis - right?

    Uncle Mac is allowed to drink his much loved Scotch - but he's special.

    As a 22 year old I like to get martinis mostly because I like them and they get the job done but also because it's super douchey as a young person [​IMG]
