    So I wasn't sure how I felt about his shirt/tie combination at first, I didn't think that it was very thought out but maybe that's exactly what he was thinking when he put it together, and if that's the case, then this is completely amazing.

    He needs a class in color coordination.

    All the fashion victims who scream "Matchy matchy!" at people who actually bother to coordinate the colors they're wearing can kiss my ***.

    The pocket square and the shirt work together; the tie doesn't work with the square and the socks are a disaster with the rest of the palette.

    haha he is doing the teapot pose :) Adorable. Maroon, aubergine, turquiose all on one body and still manage to look mighty dandy. Good job at capturing this gentleman. Love it.

    Hamish, you blew it with the sox.
    Brown sox would have lengthened the
    line accenting, and not confusing,
    the color choices of the shirt, tie and
    pocketsquare.
