TONAL RECALL

Had another stab at styling this houndstooth Thom Sweeney (click) three piece suit at weekend, my second. This grey/grey houndstooth wool and cashmere flannel from Loro Piana (click) can look green to me. It's not though. I don't like it with white or blue shirts. The balance upsets me. Too, too standard. Maybe a pink, but would have to be dusty one. Way to go with this guy, is tonal. Grey grained shirt I reckon, or even a sort of very light cappuccino colour. Grey tonal best though.

Then a Gieves (click) olive/black textured tie from my collection. Do check Gieves Hicks inspired printed ties on site by the way. A grey melange cotton tab shirt by Emmett (click), and silk pocket square by Turnbull&Asser (click) -models own. Gotta love a DB vest on this suit, but you've gotta go full tilt to make the outfit function- A total look.

Black shoes, right? Yeah, obviously. Have to concede that only just got my head round that idea as suit keeps going green on me. How awful if that happened to everything.

Stubbs is out in The Metropolis.
