    Baron - awesome stuff as usual. The BD collar is especially appealing as it has a unique twist (literally and figuratively).

    Who made the shirt if I may ask?

    Have fun at the museum!

    Thanks for kind words. The shirt label is Guy Rover, which I think is the name of a store in Milan. The cloth is interesting, almost a Birdseye, or an open weave royal oxford.

    I like the tie with the suit. Just needs a different PS.

    I think it is wrong in terms of color and texture.

    To me - when it doubt go white linen. I think you can match a PS to the tie but it is going to be tough-- likely to be too matchy matchy. Solid color silk PS will have too much sheen for the tie, but you might try a solid color wool one.

    I'm now double-thinking my choice of PS. However it picks up a windowpane color in the sc, so maybe?
