    stitches, I think it looks good, but I can see where he is coming from. I think in the context of this thread, the tie seems dressier than the jacket.

    Thanks for all the feedback, guys.

    Axe - I hear what you are saying, but this sounds more like a personal preference thing to me about the greens. I actually have that tie on the left from Ed that you posted, and I love it, I think its a great shade of green. Idk, just how it seems to me, not tryna be a feeback ignorer.

    Totally could be my own thing. If I had to try and be more scientific about it, I would say yellow tones are harder to pair than blue tones. Either way, I like the vast majority of the ties in your rotation, we don't need to agree on 100% of them.

    A blu navy pants (heavy chinos for example) would also be a good choice
    In the photo i see cold colors mixed with warm colors. All cold colors (shoes apart) is a better choice.

    I really struggle mixing cold and warm colors. My wife hates it; she firmly believes cold with cold, warm with warm. Those pants are pretty neutral--they need a bit more red/yellow to be firmly warm. The tie is definitely a warmer green. The jacket may be more of a warmer gray than a cool one (at least in the full picture). Maybe it is the shirt that should be changed.

    (Still a wonderful fit...I can't imagine a nicer pair of pure brown trou)

    In my opinion this trousers are warm, not neutral.
    Jacket: neutral mid grey
    Shirt: cold light blue
    tie: neutral on the side of warm (green is blue and Yellow... more Yellow, such as in olive and is warm, more blue and is cold, remember!)
    trousers: warm
    shoes: warm
    So if we put blue pants we obtain grey (neutral), blue-cold (shirt), blue cold(tie, and a touch of Yellow for a neutral green), blue-cold (pants) and shoes and belt apart
    In my opinion for skin tones and hair of stiches is better cold
    regards

    All Epaulet pants are too slim for me. Such a shame.

    :(

    Have you tried the Rudy fit? They are the only ones I can manage, and only just barely.

    I believe the Rudy requires special order, no? Last time I checked, there were no returns allowed on the Rudy, which definitely discourages us with "tight tolerances" at the butt and thighs from trying them. Agree with Axelman that this is a shame - there are several pants on offer from Epaulet that I want...

    can someone clarify whether or not the leg opening can be customized on a rudy fit? this is what has kept me from purchasing from epaulet (and howard yount) as at my waist measurement, 8.5" leg opening is too narrow.

    ^^Yes, there is typically room to let out pants in the leg area, although I haven't had it done.

    Thanks. Maybe I'll stop in the Manhattan shop and poke around then as I like their materials and pricing for trousers an awful lot.

    We are veering way off topic here but none of the Epaulet fits work for me - I have big thighs from weightlifting. Bespoke is pretty much the only option.

    Yes, they were MTO. Had I not had the chance to try on a similar pair in person I dont think i would have done it.


    So, well dressed and in shape. :smarmy:

    Me gusta.

    I find myself wearing brown ties more and more frequently in the colder weather. I like nothing in this fit is completely solid - there's just a little bit of interest to everything.


    Because I can't help myself...

    Since all the colors are so subdued, I think a pocket square would work especially well there.
