    Marvelous suit.

    Wearing it with a black bowtie is rather... hm, let´s call it daring.
    Now you´ve covered all bases at the same time: pinstripe street suit, sporty belt back and formal black tie. :p

    I think it would look best with a blueish, greyish or deep red 30´s shiny silk or brocade tie.

    Nice suite, very classy. The bowtie works well with it in my opinion.

    Suit's a stunner HS. I agree with Fastuni that you have merged formal/city/sport elements in a way that risks making your ensemble incoherent. BUT - your suit already invites such blending, given that it merges those wardrobe categories in its very design - made of heavy black fabric with a broad peak lapel, but also a sporty pinstripe and belted back. So thus the bowtie works for me. And anyway, pinstripes are so synonymous with city-wear these days despite the pattern's sporty origins, and I think that also helps this look not seem distractingly incoherent. Well done!

    Maybe this afternoon right after church, but for sure not right now. I've got the tie off, vest unbuttoned, shoes off, and am kicked back in my chair with a tall glass of Jamison's. :)

    I like the colour combination of the green striped shirt with brown striped suit. Very nice.

    Here's me today. I chose this outfit for distributing my home-made valentines to friends and co-workers.

    Stetson Royal
    Lands End Canvas red gingham
    Banana Republic shawl collar cardigan
    military surplus pea coat
    Orient Flight
    the tie was made by my Instagram buddy @t_v_landwehr

    Down below I'm wearing my Gustin Loomstates, and Redwing Iron Rangers

    Oh and this harness leather belt which I dyed with cordovan dye last night to go with this gorgeous Art Nouveau buckle. I suspect (and hope) it will fade a bit with time.
