    Individual pieces are all nice rags but the shirt and tie are too close tonally, they tend to wash eachother out

    How disappointing. I come here mainly for the snark and misunderstanding.

    I think everyday you tweak one item just to tweak us - PS (or maybe it is the tie - though I like big print paisleys)?


    Also, did not get an answer on my tie question.


    General I am all for snark but I am hoping this thread remains pristine and somewhat serious.

    They are fighting each other, the shirt and tie.

    The color of these pants is misrepresented by this photo - they are navy - but I'm curious as to whether this qualifies. I'm told that dark slacks and lighter jackets does not work.

    I like this, which means it is probably DQ'd.

    White royal oxford - the official business shirting of fall / winter.


    (Also goes great with tweed, right Manton?)

    Only way I could not hate that tie would be with a red nose.

    Is it just me or does every outfit posted by Oldog have an unmistakeable scent of, "eff u if you don't like it"?

    I don't like this...the collar is badly setted, too high (backward), and those lapels should be further down. The lapels result as beeing to wide, but actually that is not wideness but how it is badly setted. Instead I like how you matched the shirt and the tie.

    Sorry for the crappy Blackberry pics. I'm still contemplating on whether it is justified to buy a real camera just to take "WAYWRN" pictures.
    Anyway, the shirt is light blue twill & the tie is burgundy knitted (Gallo). PS is by you know who...

    Shoes in the spolier & yes those buckles were kept buckled...I'm not Lino Ieluzzi or Ezio Mancini.

    I think that would look better with a solid tie.

    Maybe it is just me, but I can't really bring myself to like any POW check that has too prominent of stripe running through it.
