    I really like the jackets in #1 and #2 inside the spoiler. I like #2 moreso for the color, and I like the pattern of #1. What is the fabric of #1? It looks heavy.

    Preemptive good taste question. Just took delivery of a butcher stripe spread collar shirt from Frank. Stripe is same width as Foo but is darker, maybe a slight bit lighter than navy. What tie can I wear with this? I think my navy ties while slightly darker are too similar in color. Burgundy? Yellow (gasp)? Maybe something brown that isn't too rustic looking? Will post pictures when I can.

    I like this and it is pretty much something I would put together. But one of my least favorites of the bunch, only because I think you have a great mastery of patterns and colors, and the most of the others are next level IMO.

    Are these repeats or have we moved into Chili's realm where they manage to make a 20-page menu using only five ingredients.

    I'm having a hard time with that navy/burgundy/cream (gold?) tie, Foo.

    No one thinks the square matches the stripe in the tie a little too perfectly?

    I don't like the tie and the square, doesn't look in good taste to me.

    This looks good, what is the fabric on the SC? Light stuff?

    Baby back, baby back ribs.


    It's pretty standard-issue regimental stripe, isn't it?

    The store was Caleffi (in a small piazza near Piazza Navonna). The make was something like Mittboch for Caleffi

    Corrected the navy suit photo. It was under-saturated.


    Not this one.
