    Thanks for the extensive answer BB! I like Tommy Hilfiger's stuff, but the overt branding can be a veto, same with Ralph Lauren stuff.

                    I've seen them pop up on eBay every once in a while.

                      Thanks, bud. I feel quite fortunate that the BR blazers fit me as well as they do OTR, namely in the shoulders, chest, and sleeves. I'm still a *little* self-conscious wearing them though, as I could stand to lose about 5 lbs in the general spare-tire area. But I'm getting more confident with each wearing (and with each single pound lost). Gettin' there. Baby steps. I think you were smart returning the cotton for the linen blend. All of my BR blazers are full cotton. I really wanted that chambray blue one (or whatever), but never saw it in my size during the F&F deal. Come mid-Summer, I might be wishing I got one of mine in linen/cotton too.

                      Thanks for the details on the JC denim, LukeDuke. That's a wee bit outa my comfort zone price-wise, for jeans. But I guess that's why they look and fit so well. Sometimes ya get what pay for, eh? I will keep them in mind, in case I see some stellar deal come thru. I wore my JCF pair, that I recently bought in their 50% off sale, this weekend. They worked out pretty good. They're the vintage slim-straight, in black wash. Not black, really - but pretty damn dark. Something different. Fit pretty good, but I'm a little concerned about the length. Just right now - but might shrink a little short. We'll see. I'll have to be careful.

I think up close the herringbone kinda threw me, but in the pictures it looks like a nice mid-grey. Anyhow, I'm liking that look you've got going there and I think you have convinced me that I need to pick it up.
                      Yeah Mark, regarding the grey herringbone BR blazer, I personally think the color is GREAT. Very versatile, IMO. The herringbone pattern, as you said, is pronounced in close-up shots, but from normal wearing viewing distance it comes across as a very neutral, med-to-light grey. I highly recommend it, especially if you can get a deal on it. I got mine as part of the F&F, for half off, so it was a no-brainer in my eyes then.

                      Thanks, BB. I thrifted that LE shirt. One of the few slim fit shirts I've seen thrifting. I like the reddish/maroonish, almost *chambrayish* look to it, and was hoping it worked well with the grey blazer, so thanks for the confidence boost, bud.


                        And to catch up somewhat on some recent pics from y'all:

                        @Vicious & @LesserBlackDog: Love those watches, fellas (VSA and Hammy, respectively).

                        @Lesser: Did it really go from as much snow on the ground, as you just recently showed in a WIWT pic, to shorts and a t-shirt weather? Wow! We've been teased lately around here (MI), with some *decent* weather, then crappy, cold, chilly, rainy, and even a little flurries on Saturday, but nothing quite extreme as that you're dealing with there. No Summer/Winter wardrobe rotation in your closet, eh? May as well keep them all at the ready.

                        @pratyk: Diggin' that entire outfit you got going on there, bud. Those MacNeils *are* sweet. Nice!

                        @LosRockets: Lookin' damn dapper for "running errands" - much nicer than I ever do. Good call, man!

                        @Mikey: Once again you pull a WIWT that few (dare I say *none*?) of the rest of the crew here could pull off. Nice younger perspective, per usualy. Cool. Lookin' fresh! - as it were, bud.

                        @Lesser (once again): Lookin' a little sad in that last suit pic, bud. It must have snowed again there today, eh? Regardless, lookin' very well put-together.


                          It actually is snowing again here today.

                          The weather's been pretty bipolar here. Three big snowstorms in as many weeks, with sunny, warm days in between. The snow from last week's storm had just finished melting yesterday, now it's coming down again.

                          I normally love snow but this back-and-forth is getting a bit tiresome.

                          It was actually warm-ish (45 and sunny) when I left for court this morning a little before 8am. The temp had already dropped and the snow started by the time I left a couple hours later.


                            Super laid-back monday at work, no appointments. Keeping it as simple and comfortable as possible.

                              Thanks fellas.

                              Those MacNeil's are one of the most complimented pairs of shoes I own. I was standing outside a restaurant yesterday waiting for my friends and 2 guys complimented me about it.
