londondude 's Thoughts:

Hiya everyone!

Hope you are all fabulously marvellous today??!! : )

Today was spent in a lovely little French inspired cafe, eating a nice selection of nibbles! Well, it started off with some light snacks and ended up having a very nice chargrilled chicken, seasoned with thyme and garlic. Dished up with roasted vegetables, and french fries. All washed down with a most refreshing beer from the Alsace region, called Frescher. A light fruity beer which, if, like me, you like ales, then I heartily recommend.

Of course, a lunch at a French cafe would’nt be quite right without a tasty desert…creme brulee is ALWAYS a winner… Rounded off with a nice double espresso and dark chocolate.

I do love a nice indulgent lunch! Especially when I am suitably attired in this rather dapper outfit, such as this! I know I posted this blazer on my last post, but as a) I do like it and I only brought it last week, and b) The cold season is approaching, and I have to wear it a couple more times at least! I thought I would team it up with a blue and white striped shirt with plain white collar and french cuffs (more on the French theme, there) I wore this with one of my favourite pants, my Banana Republic chocolate brown chinos, and of course this rather dashing red bowtie!

This outfit really did feel very smart in a cool sort of way, and after this lunch, we spent a while in a local bar near the river where a nice beer was also coinsumed, along with some rather admiring comments about my outfit from the regulars! : )

Well, I hope you guys appreciate the look that I have posted here, please do let me know what you think – and vote if you like!

Kind Regards and best wishes to you all,

Rob

What a great look. The blazer looks amazing, and oh that bowtie really seals the deal for me! It looks very smart but, like you said yourself, it has a cool edge to it. Besides, smartness is cool! :D Kudos, dude. As of now, I am a humble fan.

that blazer is so amazing and I'm a sucker for bow ties! I do think you should grow your hair out a bit so you can wear it with a side parting and comb it to the side, I love that :D

I DO love this blazer, can't help it. a special observation about this outfit is how every single piece of it looks perfect together: the blue of the blazer and the brown of the shoes plus the pants, the red bow-tie is the responsible for the original touch to the combo, chic voted for sure!
londondude
londondude on August 29
thanks very much!! I really like how you appreciated the way I thought it all seemd to work together, from the brown soes and pants to the blazer and red bowtie! : )
