    Looking good. On the other hand, you might be near the apex of the Y axis on the SF Noob Lifecycle. Don't aquire one iota more of sartorial knowledge; quit while you're ahead. :)

    Each to his own. But my success is the result of approaching every situation knowing there is a good solution waiting to happen. To date, there always has been.

    I got some teal socks recently on a flyer and have actually found them surprisingly versatile.

    What he means is that your outfit is hot fire and needs a long, thick hose to put out.

    When did we start calling it "StyFo?"

    It's admittedly hard to judge combinations like this because they are so cliche. Very JoS. A. Bank.

    But to be as objective as possible, here's whats wrong: (1) the contrast gap is too large, with all dark, saturated colors and nothing in between to bridge them, (2) discounting grey and white, you're only wearing one color (red), which not only makes for a boring outfit, but makes your tie loud and distracting, (3) unless wearing black tie, white shirt plus white square is an auto-fail, even if many will argue it is 'correct', and (4) the tie is an intrinsically ugly iteration of paisley due to its lack of tonal variance. The overall effect is a real-life simulation of a cartoon businessman drawn by an artist limited to three different crayons. Not good.

    Oh I agree ... just changing the color isn't sufficient to bring a look alive. It takes experience and a good sense of color.


    Here I would disagree. I was recently at a dinner party with political economist Robert Reich. His socks matched his trousers ... and he was anything but boring. On the other hand he's not one of the best dressers.
