    I really like that, GDL.

    I need to add a chocolate grenadine to my tie rotation.

    You've trained us too well, pB. Now we see him appear, and we are compelled to pB-atize him.

    I believe ":foo:" is a complete enough answer.

    Nice.

    is the shirt blue- or grey-striped?

    Where did you get the sweater? Is it a vest or full monty?

    You can fact check me. I never, ever said I would be wearing the OneShoe absolutely all the time. I mean, I wear it with pretty much everything, but I've always said there are exceptions.

    This is awesome. Also curious about the sweater details.

    Very nice use of colour, texture and pattern, Gdl.

    What height is your collar band? Looks extremely high. Don't get me wrong, I like it. Currently, I'm wearing 5cm high collar bands, but my swan neck could probably use more...


    Maybe not enough contrast between suit/shirt/tie? Hard to tell from this photo though...

    I wish this had less break.

    Fair enough. First outing for the suit. The jacket needs to be let out a bit, and the seat as well to accommodate my non-flat ass. I'll have the man take a look at the length while I'm there.

    :thumbs-up: :fistbump: You may want to wear the jacket and tie with a lighter colored shirt sometime.
