Purple Button Cover

Another ode to the Fangirl Suit Report. Check out Gratefull’s descriptions and recap of Stephen Colbert’s wardrobe on a weekly basis. Fun stuff!

Today’s tie is a solid purple with a basketweave design from TM Lewin. The shirt is also TM Lewin. I was a little wary of adding a purple pocket square and overdosing the purple so I went with a plain, white instead with a very simple TV (presidential?) fold.


Gingham Dimple

I’m definitely a check fan. I’m not sure if this is really gingham or just a block check. Some day soon I should have my first gingham shirt. The tie is a Tommy Hilfiger which are pretty decent ties for the money. They tie a great knot and are slimmer than most. They must not taper as much towards the contrast tail. The tail on this tie is a navy background with blue pindots. I’d really like to get a tie with that fabric for the blade. The shirt is another TM Lewin. It’s cream in color to match up with the yellow in the tie. The tie would also look great with a blue shirt. I’ll be testing that out soon and probably pair it with a gray suit.

Crooked Stance

Sheesh! Looks like I need something to lean on in this pic. Maybe my drop shoulder has gotten worse. I’m really liking the way the blue window pane of the suit hooks up with a blue shirt. Maybe if I’d quit patting myself on the back the shoulder wouldn’t droop so much. Ah, well…

Speaking of the shirt, it’s another TM Lewin. The necktie is a Brooks Brothers, knotted in a dimpled four-in-hand. Of course. Suit is a Jos Bank number.

Finally Back

Finally got moved into the new office. I was beginning to go into withdrawals not being able to strap on a tie. New office also means grainy pictures until I can figure out a good way to take them.

Shirt is TM Lewin and tie is another Turnbull and Asser. I really like the multi-color cross hatch pattern on this one.

Yellow Tie Week

I hadn’t even thought about it until I started this post and saw yesterday’s tie. Two yellow ties in a row. This particular tie is a Saville Row brand made in the USA. Go figure. The shirt is a TM Lewin. The v-neck sweater is from Lands End.

Belgian Waffle Humping

Belgian waffle-humping? Yup. My shout out to the Fangirl Suit Report. Rather than some reference to American Pie, it refers to a Stephen Colbert segment about Budweiser getting purchased by a Belgian company. Colbert is certainly a sharp dresser but he could step it up a notch or three by adding a pocket square. Just sayin’.

My Belgium Waffle-humping, blue necktie is made by Burma Bibas, as in I wear my bib as a necktie. Yeah, prolly not how one would pronounce, “Bibas”.

The Semi Standard Look

Not much to say. Pretty standard, off the shelf stuff. Charcoal striped suit, solid color (cream) dress shirt, burgundy tie knotted in a standard four-in-hand. Even my standard artsy-fartsy shot:
