Easy as 1, 2, 3 or A, B, C!
What I’m trying to say is one does not need to “over-cook” the pocket square stuff or try some origami BS..

WIWT - Be-Tweed It or Not - Its cold out there! This was definitely one of those ‘dress for the weather, not the calendar’ days where I reside. I made no hesitation to pull the tweed out from the doldrums of my closet. I accompanied the herringbone jacket and vest with other autumn colors like burgandy, blue, olive green, and tan. Suede chukkas once again finished off my outfit.

I’m so digging this tie! This really reminds me of my favorite math teacher in high school who always wore mathematical related jewelry - cool stuff!
Today’s post is dedicated to Tumblr’s most stylish mathematics instructor, An Acute Style, for what should be an obvious reason.
Wearing Today: Variables
White herringbone shirt; vintage square-end cotton print tie by Rooster; linen-cotton blazer.
(Okay, I know, I know: My lapels are twice the width of my tie today. Oh, the indignity! The horror! If that’s something that really bothers you, you’d probably be apoplectic over the fact that my jeans are the same color as my blazer. I’m committing all sorts of style crimes today. I regret nothing.)
What happens when Gianni Agnelli meets the Duke of Windsor for some rugby & a beer?
Most would agree the two most iconic, stylish dressers of the 20th century are Gianni Agnelli & Prince Edward (aka the Duke of Windsor). These two men together contributed more dapperness than all the “swaggers” (hate this word) have today.
Kanye W is FASHUN, period..
Stars aligned or just good pattern matching?
It’s hard enough to get a suits balance & proportion correct, let alone align the cloth pattern. In practice, only 80% of the cloth’s pattern can correctly aligned, so it’s up to the cutter to ensure the obvious areas matched - the front & rear of the body, the pockets, sleeve head, &, most importantly the sleeves as they lay alongside the body.
It is also important to ensure that the pattern is balanced in such a way to not be visually distorting. This is especially so with cloth patterns such as this double windowpane check that I am wearing. Imagine if your suit made you look round..
DubMunks are the rage at the moment, but in my opinion, most of the new ones are either overly designed or clunky. There is enough happening with the double straps & buckles, so sleek & simple is best.
Edward Green has been making the “Westminster” on the 888 last for some time now - actually well before Gen-Y or Gen X 2.0 took interest in “social media” as we know it. Very little has changed, for good reason. This pair is a special order for Leather Soul, & the Dainite rubber sole for foul weather or travel. THUMBS UP!

Most men who are interested in dressing well are subconsciously influenced by either Gianni Agnelli & the Duke of Windsor (or both).
Can you see what style cues I have merged?
