Superb from head to toe, Cooper, bravo. Add to that a gorgeous setting, a quality pic and a lovely lady by your side, wow... Keep 'em coming, young man.

Oh, that jacket's a beauty and fits you like a glove.

Beyond lovely mate! Absolute class from top to bottom. If that was black and white and grainy I'd think it was from the US in 1964. Spot on.

I concur, Mart, right out of a US college yearbook.

Great pic and great choice of threads there. How cool to see the younger generation getting into our thing and pulling off such a sharp outfit. Well done.
My only nit pick, and this may be just a personal beef, is that high buttoning three button jackets don’t need a tie clip squished into the small space available, and ending up as they do at the same level as the pocket square they end up being a distraction. Believe me your tie isn’t going anywhere even if you’re on the back of a flatbed truck going down the highway at 70 mph!

I happen to love tie clips (slides) and have amassed quite a collection (did a blog post about them a few months ago) but I almost always wear mine below the buttoning point of my three button jackets so they’re more for function than display, and are only visible when I unbutton my jacket to sit down and work to keep me tie out of the soup!

All IMO of course - anyway please keep posting pics especially if you have more of this standard.

Thanks for all the comments gents, really appreciate it.


Re the tie clip I get where you're coming from I hadn't really thought about it until you mentioned it, something to keep in mind for next time :)

Whether I'm classed as a youngster though I'm not sure having just had my 33rd birthday  :D

Blimey mate  you look great for that age! Take any remark about you being young or 'a lad' as the hugest of compliments fella. I guess seeing you at a graduation adds to the sense of youthfulness too so please take no offence from anything any of the guys said. Most of us here are some way over the 50 mark so even a 40 year old is a 'kid' to us. As noted you look spot on in my book regardless of age. The clobber did the talking.

The tie clip looks good to me mate  :) Wearing tie clips with a three button jacket is a Mod thing, always has been and always will be.
