    Thanks for the re-take on it. Reassuring to see I'm not totally off and what I can change to make it look better. I'm pretty sure my wallet is going to take a pounding over Thanksgiving break to get some better chinos and better shoes.


      Kind of a bluestravaganza today (not my normal Friday work attire, but 1) I wanted to try out the new shirt; and 2) I'm meeting the missus after work for a benefit auction/drinks thing):

      Suit: Uniqlo Tasmanian wool (from last winter)

      Shirt: Blank Label (2nd from them, pretty darn happy with the fit, very pleased with the turnaround time and customer service)

      Tie: Kent Wang

      Tie bar, pocket square: the tie bar

      Shoes: Grenson


        @Shomas, digging the dapper demeanor man, i really like blue stripes under a jacket, very nice...

        Jessy, awesome redo thats the picture i had in my mind as well...very nice including the white shirt, i dont think light blue under teal would ever work correctly...

        @focus size is the jacket? liek the fit!

          @Shomas: There are many ways to wear burgundy shoes, but my favorite is with a navy suit. I like the whole blue thing, too. I'm not generally a fan of such powerful shirts with suits, but I think the whole monochromatic theme helps to smooth it out.

          @Acousticfoodie: Nice jacket. Where'd you find it?


            @Shomas, nicely done!

            @Max, its a 41 (I am almost always a 40, and sometimes even a 39) but the reviews said to size up 1, and they didnt have 40, so I took a leap and it worked out!


              This isn't actually what I wore today; I got this brown tweed jacket as a very surprising birthday gift from my grandmother (it's just out of the box, wrinkled still in the picture) and tried it on with what I was wearing, and I like the combination. I need to get the sleeves taken up a bit but otherwise I'm very happy with the jacket's cut and texture (it's tweedy but very soft.)

              Jacket: J Crew Ludlow Tweed Herringbone
              Shirt: Target poplin gingham
              Tie: Tie Bar knit
              Pants: J Crew Slim Straight Cords (on clearance from the spring)
              Shoes: Stafford wingtip


                BB - jacket looks pretty good otr. agreed on the sleeves but fit looks nice otherwise and def works with what you happened to have on.

                  Tdig, thanks for the feedback. I figured you'd like this textured jacket.

                  Shomas, I like your style.


                    I'm trying this sweater thing again, with the popped collar this time. Looking like an idiot? Or is it ok?

                    Jacket: Thrifted LRL hopsack mid-blue blazer
                    Sweater: Thrifted "Club Room" (Macy's brand?) beige zip-up cashmere sweater
                    Shirt: Target Pink button-down
                    Tie: Navy wool hand-me-down
                    Pants: J Crew Cords, slim straight
                    Shoes: thrifted Bostonian beaters (going to rain today)


                      Thanks everyone!

                      BB, I like the look with the sweater. If I were to suggest an adjustment, it would be to lose the tie. The overall look is nice and relaxed and I think going tieless would add to that vibe.


                        @BB: It's an improvement, for sure. I see no problem with the tie in there, but I also wear ties about 50% of the time so I'm rather immune to seeing them. Since the sweater is cashmere, that really helps it to fit in under the jacket and brings the whole ensemble up a notch. And I'm all for wearing ties casually.


                          @BB really feeling that first outfit with the red tie.

                            @BB, I like the new take on the sweater. Could go either way with the tie for me.
