    Stitchy is now googling all castles that have houses with red roofs near them :crackup:

    that would limit his search down to just all of southern Germany...

    no i don't live in a castle but it might be a rather iconic landmark with which one could be able to determine a location rather well, wouldn't you say?

    clapey, well the terrace looks well as if it'd belong to a castle!
    Nice rainbow color palette outfit by the way.

    shot earliest in the morning. colours might be all over the place.

    brown red cashmere coat (part of a suit)
    forrest green cashmere sweater
    light blue / white checkered shirt
    light grey flannel trousers
    tan brogues

    [​IMG]

    Light brogues clash in a particularly egregious way. I wear a lot of white boots myself so this isn't about light coloured footwear but how they integrate in this particular outfit. I am really liking light grey pants in winter though, especially flannels.

    Shirt collar too big and trying to run away from you (or it's the movement as you're holding your arm up). I'd really check how tight the collar is and how it adheres to your neck.

    Tight jeans are good when your legs are skinny enough that they don't entirely mold your thighs, you need a slightly more relaxed fit on top.

    i was conflicted between brown suede monks, navy suede chukkas and these tan brogues.

    retrospectively I've probably opted for the worst choice out of these three...

    Ik think the monks would have been better, the chukka's worse.

    well... I'm a mechanical engineer. I already get strange looks from my peers when I appear in an ironed shirt every morning. now imagine double monks... but yeah I agree brown suede would have been best.

    I like the grey trousers-tan shoes contrast.

    Hate it with navy trousers though. Too american-trying-to-be-Italian.

    Like it with jeans though (i.e. tan boots).

    It is weird how we pick up these little discriminations by association.
