WIW: Happy Mother's Day!

A bit cool but warm enough for a summer look.

A common look is to have a dark sports coat paired with lighter trousers. But switching around the colors so that the sports coat is light and the trousers darker can really get the creative juices going. I recommend you try it sometime and see if you are happy with the results.

Nylon and acetate tie. A very strange feeling material but ties well.
These "Roman warrior" cufflinks are some of my favorites.

I've enjoyed your blog tremendously and note that you have an appreciation for high waisted trousers -- not today, but elsewhere.

I'm trying to achieve the look of Edward Fox in 'Day of the Jackal' with his impossibly high waisted brown trousers.

Any ideas of where to look for these?

Your best bet would be custom made. Very few OFR (if any) sell truly high waisted trousers.

In order to be high waisted a pair of trousers need two things: long rise (distance between the crotch and the top of the trousers) and a shape that narrows from the hips to the waist. That helps the trousers stay in place. No OTR company that I've seen has these two things, though some do have the high rise.

Don't know about the shoes since I found them at Goodwill, but I would assume they were at least $150 originally, most likely $200+. I've had some good luck with finding shoes at Goodwill. Once I bought $300 Allen Edmond shoes for $3.
