This is one of my purple suits. This is the blue-ish purple one, which is why I wore it with a blue shirt. I have another one that is a red-ish purple one with a slightly different cutting and design. In my opinion, the red-purple one has better workmanship and design than this one. But all in all, I think that I like both purple suits.
I wore this the other day, to attend a formal evening function with a strict dress-code. I noticed a few guys staring at my suit. I wonder if they were staring because of the colour or because of the design. Unfortunately, the ladies did not take notice in my direction. Hehe.
The reason that my face has been cropped out of the photo is because I am totally not photogenic. There is a reason why I am usually behind the camera, rather than in front. This is actually the first time this suit and I appeared in a photo.
In real life, it is not quite as purple. This photo looks a little more purple because of the camera flash. That is also the reason why the shirt looks terribly shiny. Under diffused lighting, it looks darker and more subdued. It was never my intention to stand out in a crowd.
And yes, this is supposed to be worn without the tie, which was the reason why I chose this design in the first place! I hate ties!
