    Dress Code  

    Photographed in New York, NY

    Noteworthy: ticket pocket, cutaway collar. Although a tie bar here is somewhat superfluous when worn with a waistcoat or vest, it is used here to maintain a slight arch in the tie.

    Love the collar and silk knit tie.  Not a fan of tie bars, especially when wearing a vest.

    When I say it’s a cashmere suit, I mean it’s 100% cashmere.  And not worsted cashmere.  So it will be a ball of fur after a couple of wears.

    Two elements you don’t see too often are the flap on the breast pocket and the throat latch.

    The combination of those elements suggests, the suit in the photo is almost certainly Ralph Lauren Purple label, Drake model.  It’s a cashmere olive plaid with lavender windowpane, I believe.  If it is, then it’s about $6000, but currently on sale for about $1500.

    I enjoy a nice cutaway collar shirt.
