  • hon140, looking slick! The zip jumper wouldn't fit into my wardrobe, but it looks darned good on you. If you purchase a pair of black penny loafers then we'll have to start calling you Archer.

    • Nice tactilneck! You didn't invent the turtleneck, but you are the first to realize its use as a sartorial garment.

              • I couldn't find a tie bar this morning so I had to improvise when I got to the office. I am also know to use one of my daughter's bobby pins from time to time...

                • devirkahan, I like everything in this outfit but the pants. I don't think that there's enough contrast between the pants and the tan brogues. The outfit would be excellent with darker trousers or darker shoes.


                  TommyTheCat, I dislike both the shirt and the tie, and additionally they do not go together. However, you get a full pass (even for the paperclip) due to the fact that you have a young daughter. Frankly, it's amazing that you're able to find the time to look as good as you do.

                  • @TommyTheCat Shirt looks fine, but I agree with bruschetta that the tie does not go with this shirt nor should it go with any shirt. As for the paper clip...let's leave that for...paper.


                    Change the tie & ur good to go!

                    • Thanks for the feedback. Now I remember why I never wear that tie . As far as the paperclip goes, function over form, man. My workplace is very laid back and I need something to keep my tie out of my lunch!



                      This is how I normally look. Jacket is vintage 1960s Levi's. Not pictured are brown chukkas from Bass.

                      • Tommy, I like the jacket. I can't pull something like that off, but I envy those who can.


                        What are your opinions on black ties, folks? I'm wearing dark grey wool slacks and black shoes, if it matters.

                        • Either way, it needs to be a bigger knot, no?

                          • I think that looks really good BB. Bigger would be fine, but I like it as is.

                            • @BB The knot looks fine to me.


                              I have a tie that looks like the one @TommyTheCat was wearing. I'll have to burn it tonight.

                              • @Tommy -- I like the shirt (and it appears it may be a pretty good fit for you, but hard to tell), but agree on the dislikes for the tie. I appreciate the function over form approach, but wouldn't make a habit of it lest you be branded a try-hard


                                @BB -- Is the tie sort of a grenadine texture? or is that just a pattern on the tie? Can't tell in the picture. Either way, I feel that the tie and jacket(suit?) with a buttondown pinpoint may be a little conflicting. Otherwise I think the colors work pretty well.
