Khaki trousers keep the whole ensemble strategically balanced, and the perfect chocolate double monks keep it grounded.
Snob Of The Week: Sir Max from Off The Rack Tumblr is proof that snob perfection can be found in the most elegant understated details. The slim cut double breasted linen suit is tailored sublimely, the nipped waist and just the right amount of cuff showing. It is offset by a periwinkle spread collar shirt and pocket square that picks up just a hint of the same color, finished with a natty puppytooth necktie constructed with a deep dimple. The caramel colored bag and double monk shoes add warmth to the cool tobacco linen of the suit. well done sir, well done.

Snob of the Week: Mr. Ramdhani gearing up for spring and looking swell in his khaki suit by Oger. Nude colours work wonders when pairing with light blue or chambray hues as shown here for the shirt and pocket square. His knit tie picks up the suit colour as does the suede Santoni tassel loafers. As always with impeccable style, the details make the difference, look at the perfect trouser length with big cuffs & the jacket’s patch pockets. For the extra doses of sprezz look at the nonchalance of the tie and the sockless shoes. Spring has indeed finally arrived!

No one does it better than you Mr. TT !
