      dropscu - I really like that utility blazer despite what most on here will say. It's not as versatile as some others, but I still think it looks pretty cool.

        Definitely not as versatile as standard blazers, but I love the look of it too. Really liked it when they put it out in last year's spring collection, and then ended up picking it up in the fall on clearance for $40. I couldn't pass it up!

          Apparently, I missed some fireworks...

          @Newguy, I like that sweater a lot. You've put it to good casual use here as well.
          @evil-e, I second Mikey's comments - especially regarding the shirt. Everything everyone is posting from F&O looks so good, for my wallet's sake, I just have to avoid looking at their site...
          @drocpsu, I'm not a fan of that type of jacket in general, but it does fit you very well.

            I tried picking it up as well but it just didn't fit me.

                  Wow, looks like I missed some trolls. That's a milestone.

                  Shomas, looking good as always. I like the pocket square -- I'm still trying to figure out how to work with them and not look too stuffy.

                    Boring fit but I wanted to get some feedback on the boots. They're narrower than I'm used to a I feel a little off when I look down at them but my wife loves them. They're pretty comfy too. The pic seemed to elongate my torso, I'm not that dis-proportioned in real life...

                      Thanks, BB. Your outfit is looking quite nice as well. And the bag is incredible, of course. Is that the large? I'm sure you've mentioned it, but I don't recall.

                      As for a pocket square, I find that folding them so they aren't razor-sharp helps to make them less stuffy. Also, patterns help, as I've demonstrated above. Also one of my favorite moves, which I think tones things down some, is using a white square with a border - it seems to break things up a bit without being too loud.

                          Thanks Mikey, it is a thin knit cotton one from Topman. But they don't make it anymore, I got it off of eBay for a couple of pounds.

                            Shomas, good thoughts on the pocket square -- I think the fold is a good idea. I'll try to work some in.

                            hamm23, are those cowboy boots? In any event I can't help you there, since I know nothing about boots.

                            Andrew4h, I got that same blazer off ebay a couple of weeks ago ($20!) I love it, and wear it a couple of times a week.

                              No they aren't cowboy boots but that's what I feel like I'm wearing when I have them on. Here's some stock photos (I darkened mine with some polish)

                                Feeling like summer already! And I finally got back this pale blue half lined cotton blazer. The white buttons are a bit out there, I might change them later to a light bone color or just get used to them.
