    Ok, so it's hard to tell from the camera phone, but all the pieces I'm wearing today are separate. I'm wearing 4 or 5 shades of grey. There are a lot of subtle patterns, but they all blend together and even things out because of the palette.


    I was going for two things this morning. First, I made the whole get-up more casual with a cotton tie, a thick floppy sportcoat, and rubber soled shoes. Second, I went with tonal grey to draw more attention to the only thing with color - the reddish shoes.





    Shoes: Allen Edmonds Bagley

    Pants: Banana Republic tonal grey plaid wool pants

    Shirt: Banana Republic white textured oxford

    Sweater: grey cashmere (don't know maker)

    Tie: Nordstrom 1901 tonal grey plaid 100% cotton tie

    Sportcoat: GAP tonal grey herringbone

    Watch: Fossil Walter w/ black band (intentionally breaking the "match your leathers" rule)


    Roxy really wanted to see what Daddy was doing this morning so I worked her into the picture. And I'm bummed that I forgot my grey herringbone overcoat. It would have been the superfecta. :-P maybe I'll take some separate pics later since the one I posted is a little blurry (but probably not).

    @JC: You buy these slick suede penny loafers, and then you never show us a picture of them actually on your feet. Pics or it didn't happen. :-P

    If there was a daily WIWT award, I think it would go to Ben. And looking at that pic I took this morning on a big screen at work just makes it look worse. :-P I need to start using a real camera.


    @BenR: How much was that tie bar?


    @Kenneth: How would that sweater behave if you unzipped it a bit? Would it just flop around or give you a solid "V" if you dropped it a few inches? Also, (and this is purely personal preference), when I wear full length sweaters, I like to pull them back from my shirt cuff about a half inch. It breaks up the solid-colored sweater and shows off the shirt.


    I also rarely button my shirt cuffs when I'm wearing a sweater since I'm constantly pushing my sleeves up and pulling them back down, but that's just me. I don't like being stuffy.

    Aw, thanks Alan. I'm not sure I'd be the winner... I tend to wear variations of the same thing over and over again. And always with jeans....


    I got the tie bar for $20 from Macy's. I think it was on sale down from $30 or something. I wasn't convinced a little bit of metal was worth $20, but in retrospect it was a good purchase. It's probably the single item that gets the most use in my whole wardrobe, since I always use it when I wear a tie, which is 3-4 days per week.


    Mine has a sort of industrial texture to it that keeps it from being too boring or blingy.

    Diamond plate on a tie bar... That's a no-brainer thumbs up in my book. It's inspired me to finally grab that sterling silver tie slide from Clad for $20ish bucks. I actually like the look of the KC diamond plate a bit more, but I can't say no to sterling silver.


    I just got this one:
