When you go out in the snow to get pictures of your outfit, you know you’re dedicated.  Or that you have a problem.  I’ll leave it to you to decide which.  🙂

Looking back at this outfit, I think the pocket square with the colored border took this outfit just a little too over-the-top into matching too much (with the windowpane in the sportcoat an the stripe in the tie.  As I’ve mentioned before, you want the elements of your outfit to complement each other without necessarily matching, lest it all look too contrived.
