    Between the watch, chinos, blazer, and shoes, that is possibly the most absurdly well-coordinated outfit I have ever seen.


      yoyorobbo, I like that outfit, especially the jacket, watch, and longwings. Is the BR blazer as dark as it is in your pictures? It looks like a light shade of blue on the website.


        Good looks everyone.

        @yoyorobbo: That's a great outfit and I realllllllly like the shoes. (Orient Vintage also is gorgeous). Next step: match your furniture :P

            Great fit on everything, think that's your best fitting blazer, contrast works really well.
            Gotta ask, what's with the can't dress like that and wear those!

              They live in my car ... Was holding them. My normal "dressier" shades are a frosty grey

                Well, thank you very much, fellas!

                @Lesser: That is quite a compliment, man. Thank you. I actually nearly second-guessed the outfit this morning, thinking the look might be a little too... *cliche*, I guess? Meaning blue blazer, white shirt, khaki pants - blah-blah-blah - typical? But it just felt right anyway, so I went with it. Maybe it's cliche for a reason: simple yet congruent. Dunno. I do consciously try (sometimes to a fault) to get all matchy-matchy with my leathers (watch band, belt, shoes), so maybe that's what's at work here. Regardless, thanks very much for the kind words.

                @Bruschetta: First off, thanks! Secondly, the birdseye blazer is a tough one to photograph and represent faithfully, IMO. It can look darker - probably does in the main fuller-length shot due to the mirror location in the room - than on BRs website. I hope the closeup pics of the watch and fragrance shows you a little more of how that darkness vs lightness is conveyed, due to the birdseye pattern. Still, outdoors in the direct sunlight it looks much brighter. Maybe they hit it with some really potent lighting in the BR photo shoot. It's my current favorite blazer. I just love the 3/2 roll. Kinda wish the other ones I have from BR (taupe, grey) were that style too. Alas, "variety is the ..." something or other.

                @LosRockets: Haha! Believe me bud, with the amount of beiges, tans, browns and maroons littered throughout our bedroom where my most recent WIWT pics were taken, I know for sure I've matched that a time or two. Light blues, tans and browns in our front room have found me matching them on occasion too. Annnnnway, thanks for the complimentary comments, dude.

                Regarding the longwings, they were my $4.50 specials from Salvation Army earlier this year. I posted them here, asking y'all about them, and what to do to get them cleaned-up and into action. Great advice from LesserBlackDog, helped me get them into the rotation.

                After I cleaned and conditioned them, some of the burgundy color was thin in some spots, so instead of going with burgundy polish, I tried the ol' black polish trick, to attempt to achieve a more eggplant-like look. I really like how they turned out, but I'm not sure how good of a job I really did on them - it was a good learning experience nonetheless. I also applied some black edge dressing along the heel and sole, threw in some spiffy new AE wax laces, and put them on shoe trees. They aren't perfect, but they're a certainly fun experiment for four and a half bucks. Ya'know?

                Again, thanks guys.


                  Robbo - Agreeing with everyone else - Very nice outfit.

                  The belt is a very dark brown but always photographs as black for some reason.

                    @yoyo - like everyone else said, you dress implacably! Masculine yet polished!
                    @Jake - nice outfit, like the tie with that shirt a lot! Shades do not go with this outfit in my opinion, but if you like

                    Guys, what do you think of this shirt? I had it for ages, but rarely wear it, I feel it is a bit too much...


                      @Matt - I like the shirt. It works well as long as you keep everything else simple.

                        I agree with this. While I like the pattern of the shirt, I personally don't like the patterned shirt/white collar and cuffs thing. It's not as noticeable on this particular shirt because it's light colored and with the blazer on though.

                        @Matt--I think the overall outfit looks good though.
