    Thanks for the input/compliments, all!

    Good to know those aviators can be made prescription. They are definitely on my list of potential sunglasses to use as a second pair (I'm pretty happy with my current primary pair). Anyone know where one can try them on in person? I'm kind of terrible at guessing whether glasses will look good on me, which is why I've stuck with my everyday, non-sun glasses for a very long time.

    I also agree with greg_s and Vicious49 re. the dual Prince of Wales checks. It works and it's got the added benefit of being kind of a "guess what, suckas?!" kind of a move.

      Less than I would like, but more than you'd expect. But thank you.

      Thanks, guys. For my next trick I'll try wearing a windowpane shirt with a windowpane jacket or a pinstripe suit with a bengal stripe shirt. My outfit was born out of a lack of options, so I'm glad that it passes the muster in the WIWT thread.

          I like the red pants. I think they work best the way you wore them, paired with neutrals.

                Shomas, looks great. Nice patterns. And you're right about the tie -- should have went truly casual Friday!

                bruschetta, I did a double take at first because it looked like the pattern in the shirt was trying to burst out through the jacket, like it was an Alien and your jacket was a futuristic astronaut. Uncanny. Seriously, that's better pattern-matching than 99% of shirt seams. Flawless integration.

                Sigtweed, nice shoes.

                Pratyk, I like your shirts.

                Vicious, I am envious of the shoes.

                Jake, I agree with BenR. Wear them with confidence.

                    Thank you.

                    I bought both of those items awhile ago so I don't think they are reflective of the current quality. Particularly the jeans. The shirt has held up great, I think i paid like $10 or something crazy for it. The jeans I believe were PDC before they sold out/went mass market so they are pretty high quality. The current jeans under that brand are of far inferior quality from what i have seen. Doesn't' mean they aren't decent but I just don't think they are the same thing.

                        Looking nice & relaxed there, BB. Peach-infused mint julep sounds mighty tasty.

                        I also snagged a pair of those US-made 505s during a Hautelook sale this year for something like $60. I wore the heck out of them this winter.

                              Wish the pictures weren't so blurry, but in my defense I was a little drunk.
