Working
While working. I was sitting at the kitchen table, working on my dissertation. An important part of dissertating is distracting oneself. I was fiddling with my tie and remembered that I loved the way it knotted this morning. I decided to take a picture of it, while also playing around with my lighting. This is maybe a little more dramatic than necessary, but I like it.

Being a Big Guy

I’m a pretty big guy. I’m not an enormous guy, one of those guys that turn your head in the street. But, I’m big nonetheless. I’m over 200lbs and over 6’ tall. That qualifies as big almost everywhere. It’s part of the reason why I feel more comfortable with these wide lapels than with the narrow ones on the suit I wore yesterday. I’m also wearing a relatively wide tie to go with the wide lapels.

Formal(ish) Friday
This is not formal from the perspective of menswear, but is certainly formal from the perspective of the general population.
The outfit was informed by the Practical Thoughts on Coherent Combinations For Beginners thready on Style Forum. Although the suit cut in a ‘city’ style, it is what F. Corbera refers to as a ‘casual suit,’ because of the fabric. The casual suit can be accessorized in a more casual way, and I have done so with a button down, knit wool tie and patterned pocket square. I tried to remain consistent among them.
My one concern is the colours I’ve chosen. I’m inclined to treat light pink like light blue, and very flexible. I kept my accessories in the ‘reddish’ realm, but am not sure if they actually go together.
