A pink and white cousin to my first foray into the world of online mtm. This time, I was wise enough to opt for matching cuffs, but I still couldn't resist the double buttons.
I bet the guys at J.Press who sold this blazer the first time out would be appalled to see it over a Russian made shirt ordered online, but the two garments play well together.
The fits good. Snug, but not tight,with plenty of room for movement in the arms. The sleeves may be a pinch too long, but I'll chalk that up to inaccuracy on my part. That's one of the drawbacks to this whole online shirt thing. It's always better to have your measurements taken by an experienced professional. When you do it yourself, the likelihood of mistakes increases exponentially.
The placement of the collar buttons leaves something to be desired. I'll probably take them off and place them again. Another minor inconvenience. Gotta love the pink gingham and the bright green silk knit, though.
Made in England for the Andover Shop. Nice. Or wait a minute...
was it made in Italy? This tie bears both of these tags. Don't know which is true, but either way it's a good one. Well worth the $2.99 I paid for it, especially since it still had an Andover Shop price tag for $85.
Pleated tan gabardine slacks with side tabs, made in Italy courtesy of Ralphie Purple. These pants are a bit of a departure for me from the usual guidelines of my style, but that seems to be a theme with this whole rig. Nothing wrong with the occasional pleated pants, so long as they're inverted. Sort of plays of the unusual collar and the bright tie, with the old reliable 3/
sack blazer nailing it all down.
Finish the whole thing sockless with brown suede bit loafers, possibly my new favorite shoes. There may be a lot of Euro going on here, but some of those guys know how to dress, too.
