I like it as well, if perhaps a little autumn for summer.
It's Harrison's worsted flannel.
I corrected the photo. The stripes are burgundy. The square is brown.
Post pics but I like burgundy and greens with a dark navy stripe
Yes, absolutely, but don't forget rusty, bricky orange! Also, if you are dressing it up with a dark suit, a silver or silvery blue tie would be awesome.
I like it but its a lot going on...
Agreed. Colors are nicely put together, but the pattern scales are all too tight and dense. Need some relief.
A lot to like but I don't find this square tasteful. It looks like something Umbro would give away.
I'm in a rush in the morning, what can I say?
I forgot: Big Time.
What do you think of my Chili's Menu approach to dress? Dopey thinks its inspired and genius.
i dont remember him quite putting it like that. as well, dopey doesnt truly know a whole lot about chillis.
I was thinking Cheesecake Factory..
High praise. Have you had the avocado eggrolls?
Post 667: Who makes that jacket? I really like it.
On a serious note, I do think a well-edited wardrobe is a powerful asset in dressing and an expression of good taste. One must commit to what one likes, make real choices between one thing and another, rely on substantive, long-living style over day-to-day surprise and sparkle. The best restaurants don't have expansive menus. They do a relatively narrow range of things very well and have the confidence to insist patrons eat what they serve the way they want to serve it.
My favorite dressers also walk a narrow path. There is a reason certain icons are icons--they dress a particular, recognizable way. The test of good taste should not be about how much you can devour, consume, and put on display, but whether you can consistently separate the few best things from the many mediocre and bad.
Rubinaci, bespoke. The cloth is a discontinued Woodhouse fresco.
