    for everyone, in all threads:

    When quoting pics, PUT THEM IN SPOILERS SO THEY DON'T TAKE UP SO MUCH SPACE.

    It's very easy.


    1. Click the little black quote box. It creates something like this: "SPOILER=Warning: Spoiler!" "/SPOILER" except with some brackets (or you can just type this out if you want)
    2. Put the stuff that you want in the spoiler in between the "SPOILER=Warning: Spoiler!" and the "/SPOILER"
    3. If you want, change the "Warning: Spoiler!" to what you'd like it to say instead.
    4. Submit

    I don't really like the stitching either but it is classic, and the color combo is good.

    #2 (The PS is dark brown, not black)

    #3

    #4

    #5

    Foofed: De-spoilered the pics. Too good to hide. Only re-posted pics need to be spoiler-ed.

    +1, although #4 is my least favorite. I don't like the tie that much and I think something other than a white square would be better.

    My least favorite was the square in #2, too much pattern in the pocket of a heavily patterned suit.

    MrChris, these are generally very good. I think I like #1 most because of the deft color combination, but I wish the square weren't solid. Unlike others, I don't have a problem with solid colored squares, but I hate repeating solid accoutrements and your tie already takes up a slot in that count. #5 is also really nice. That's how I personally like to see a white linen square used. It's best with a patterned shirt. My only issue with #2 is that the textures and pattern scales are all a bit fine for the pattern expressed by the jacket, which I think calls for something more country and rustic. The royal blue tie and very dark navy square are a great combo.

    #3 is my least favorite. The navy in the tie and square is repetitive.

    I supose you're refering to my #2 pic .That is actually a sports coat, if my memory is not lacking I belive I was wearing mid grey wool pants that day.

    @ all...Wow thanks for all the positive comments all, certainly didn't expect all the praise.

    Quite good overall, big problem in 1-3 is the apparentl matchiness between tie & square. Tie #4 is great, don't let the bastids get you down.

    This isn't horrible, but it would appear to be a man who looks like he only owns 1 suit.

    It's better to put one suit to good use than to use four or five as fodder.

    Anyway, I spy at least two suits and an odd jacket.
