From a discussion in the SF WAYWRN thread on medium grey jackets with charcoal trousers….
Oh it’s a regular sized Pitti wall for sure, I am just 9’3” tall……
The Friday challenge on StyleForum this week is “Summer ties” and I decided to throw my hat into the ring using a silk/cotton Mogador tie from Drake’s (via ExquisiteTrimmings). Mogador (or Mogadore) ties are classic summer staples and derive their names from the Moroccan city of Mogador (current day Essaouira) where this type of fabric has it’s origin. The Mogador fabric consists of a mix of silk and cotton yarns, with silk in the warp and cotton in the weft.

I really like shades of blue that are just a little bit lighter than traditional navy blue. This Cifonelli suit has pretty much the perfect shade……
Real simple. Love those solids. But, you might want to see a doctor about your face.
Woah, that was an old one…..
A rare opportunity
This week’s Friday challenge on StyleForum was “Heavyweight tag team championship” - pair up with another forum member and wear an outfit centered around a common theme. As someone noticed in the thread:
Do you guys know what this challenge reminds me of?
When my daughter was like 7 or 8, she would call her bestest friend at night before bed, and they would meticulously plan to be wearing matching clothes to school the next day.
I usually don’t dress up too much these days as I am on summer vacations, but I really couldn’t miss this opportunity. So I paired up with cleav31, who just happens to be one of my favourite posters on SF, and above you see 50% of the tag team “Checkmates(s)”. For 100% see here

Tie too thin? This poster thinks so, but I personally think that it looks pretty solid. You can go debate tie widths (8 cm is now the standard for Drake’s ties vs the 9.5 cm from last decade) on the forum if that’s your thing.
Well that poster would be me 😊. I recently had that specific tie widened as much as possible, making it closer to 9cm. I actually like it better that way!
Monday; business; 3-piece.
Those checks again…

A quintessential British finish
Last day of the semester featuring a Prince of Wales suit made up from a sublime 13 oz H. Lesser cloth in a distinctive British cut - a fairly structured chest, a pinched waist, slight roping on the shoulders and of course double vents. Rounding out things are a regimental tie and a simple cream pocket square from Turnbull & Asser.
