      Looks good, TomasR, especially for throwing something together. I don't see anything wrong with any of it, although it's hard to see what the pants look like (aside from the color) in those shots.

      J. Crew's Ludlow fit is great, imo. I have it in a navy cotton blazer, the english tweed brown blazer, and a charcoal grey suit. Wouldn't mind having the grey tweed blazer as well. Good stuff.

        Still trying to get comfortable wearing a blazer so I'm keeping it basic and simple for now.

          @Matt: Really loving the purple knit. The blazer is pretty daring, but I'm diggin the lapels and you make the one button work.

          @Tomas: Absolutely love the navy tie on the gingham. Tie bar a bit high for my tastes, but I think that's opinion.

          @Vicious: Every time you post that watch, I get more and more jealous...gahhhh

            Wanted to wear my JCrew Grey Tweed blazer with this, but had to go with my Uniqlo beige rain mac due to the weather.

              Threw this together this morning. I wear a Forest Service uniform M-Th, so trying to mix rugged with smart casual. How'd I do?

                @shomas - guess it fits pretty well after all.

                  Now you're just being cruel! Looks great - I particularly like the little yell of purple at the socks. Might want to get that growth on your right shoulder checked out though.

                        Big fan of the LE jacket by the way, Jeff. I almost returned it, but I'm so glad I kept it. Looks rugged, but as you've shown still works well over a dress shirt and pants.

                          Shomas, That Uniqlo suit fits surprisingly well. How tall are you? I found Uniqlo's length to be far too short for me (5'10"), but it looks just about perfect on you.

                            It does fit me very well. It's probably the best $150 I ever spent. I'm 5'9.5" - 5'10" depending on how much I slouch. Other Uniqlo suit jackets I've tried on didn't fit me very well, but this one, once I had the sleeves taken up about .5", is great. It's not going to last forever, but I've had it over a year and I wear it a couple of times per month and so far so good.

                              @Jake: The tweed is killer. Just a question; is the tie bar between what looks like buttons 2 and 3 a personal choice, or more commonplace? Seen a lot of guys doing it, but I've always been taught 3 and 4.

                              @jeff: Did pretty well; pants fit is killing it if you ask me, especially the slimness. Not sure if they need to be hemmed or they're just wrinkled, but I really like the slim fit. Tie bar would be an upgrade.

                              @Shomas: LOVE IT. I'm sure some will question the choice of the black suit (...or is it navy? which would make everything I'm about to say irrelevant), and certainly the shoes with the black (again, ?) suit (indeed, I feel perhaps either black (of course) or a lighter walnut might have done better), but the grey socks help to break it up a bit, and the shoes are so goodlooking that it works out alright. Speaking of the socks, I love the socks. That is all.

                              Photo quality went out the window again; think it depends on the lighting. Decided to give the Beckham halftuck a spin today:

                              Shirt: Express
                              Jeans: Express (seeing a pattern? these are my go to dark wash - they're resin coated, which I enjoy as a nice touch which makes the color much more uniform, almost look like navy chinos)

                              Disregard the bear head drawn on my hand.
