    ^ that's OK. Still a great casual look.

    Spring is here, but it's still 58 in San Francisco. At least I still get to wear flannel. Lots of seasonal ensembles and colors for the first half of May, like the colors of @Spandexter here:

    On with the compilation.

    There may be others, but the bengal/candy stripe is the only stripe for me. Or two. Whatever. Good mix of pattern scale, and colors that don't induce vomiting. Well done.

    I shouldn't like french blue, but I really like this. Cleav does British sensibility in a manner unmatched elsewhere. His suit combinations are always a pleasure to see. Here's another one:

    Greg got the low-contrast shirt & tie memo, and balanced his suit's casual fabric with kicks in the same vein. He does this so well, he should open a store.

    For pleasing color combination inspiration, look no further than your child's bedroom. Not sure where the brown came from :devil: Seriously, though, his clothes fit without being tight, and the seasonal colors jive together.

    @Adolesco

    The colors, the button-down shirt, the fabric, the shoes, all come together for a relaxed casual look. Pink/brown is a wonderful combination for all but the most conservative meetings.

    Special shout [email protected], who should start a fund to hire a lackey to take his pictures for him, because they are terrible, and we are missing out.

    Some well dressed fellas in this ensemble. What stands out for me is the versatility of green ties: winners all across the classic menswear spectrum from CBD to Neapolitan-inspired spring earth tones. This collection is almost a tutorial on why green ties rock.

    UC, deligted to be included in your compilation. Honoured indeed :nodding:

    BTW, why no to French Blue?

    Ok. So you like pink. Or the camera does. Either way your manly studliness is softened by the comely hues of your ensemble. Some say mixed message, I say Tenderloin. Both have their upside.

    It can sometimes read too saturated. I liked yours, though; it seemed muted.

    I agree - green ties (and squares) are terribly underrated. Depending on the shade it goes with practically everything in all seasons, and adds the right amount of color interest, whereas a whole suit in that color might be too much.

    Yep, I hear you. That one does dance along the line though!

    Didn't know about this thread until I was quoted in it, but thanks for the recognition. Odd thing though, no one has every called me sultry before. Not even my wife.

    The forum does recognize Phat Guido, if he ever resurfaces. Get off your bike and post.
