    JCrew chino suit jacket that I'm wearing as an odd jacket, and that doesn't look orphaned
    Thrifted blue Oxford
    Thrifted blue chinos
    Sperrys

    Going for more contrast today.
    Very nice! I wear my chino suit jacket as a separate, too. In fact, Maybe I'll just wear what you're wearing today so I don't have to think about it. :-D

      Shomas making me brush-up on my google-fu again. Not the biggest DK fan here (although I do recall a few slam-dance debacles to their tuneage at my HS dances back in tha day), so the name reference blew (right past) my mind.

      BB made me google "Buffalo check" too. You guys... always schoolin' me. Thanks for that, actually.

      Now for the looks:

      Shomas, those pants look like a really *cool* Summer option. When you said "corded" I thought of "cords" - which seem sweat-inducing to me. But I think I now get it. I'll have to keep those on my radar. Trying to hold off on purchases - but man, it's tough when I keep seeing crap I want. Ugh.

      BB, I like the contrast in this one better than the other day's getup; but truthfully I thought that one looked good too. Only thing that I think might look a *touch* better here (and there, too) would be maybe some dressier (yet still casual) loafers. I love my Sperrys too, but you dress so damn nice all of the time, that the boat shoes are kinda throwing me, at least based on the pics. I don't mean to be over-critical or whatever - like I said, the look is great! - just something a little off that I'm feeling with those top-siders, that's all, bud.

            Corded is like...seersucker light. Texture but still a light crisp fabric. Great for summer, if you can find a nice pair of corded cotton pants they are a great summer option, especially in a light beige or maybe light cement gray. 2 out of the big 3 (BR/Gap) usually have some about this time of year and if you play the sale game you can get in at a low investment if you want to try them out.

              Just now realized that I'm employing a kinda-sorta 4th of July outfit a good solid week early. Doh! Ah well, may as well then just preemptively proclaim, here's to "the red and white and starry blue! (...and cognac)"


              Polo: Lacoste (thrifted)
              Belt: LE (thrifted) - "Made in England" - Can I still wear this on Independence Day?
              Chinos: Dockers
              Shoes: Mercanti Fiorentini
              Watch: Rotary
              Scent: D&G

                I know I'm just nit-picking, but "corded" is a general term. It doesn't do a very good job of explaining the gauge. It could still be correctly applied to sweat-inducing corduroy. I think the term you're looking for is "pincord". Pincord is often misidentified as seersucker because both are lighter and both tend to be striped. However, neither seersucker nor pincord must be multi-colored.

                    Debatable on 4th of July wearing an English belt. Pretty much ANY other country of origin, fine...

                    Good look though.

                      Yes, it's kind is a JV squad seersucker. And Alan is right-pincord's a better description. There's a JCF Thompson in pincord that's pretty great. I actually bought one recently and would be picking it up from the tailor today if I wasn't unexpectedly diverted to LA. So it'll have to wait about a week, but I'm sure ill post a pic relatively soon.

                        Cologne guy, this is great. It'd be bumped up to excellent if a pair of socks were thrown into the mix.

                          Robbo - I've mentioned it before but I do like that belt.

                          The pants aren't photographing well but it's a really light brown linen color. It's a light brown with some white threads woven in so it's showing up as gray in the pics.

                            Thanks, that's a good point. The structured jacket and boat shoes are probably too far removed in formality. It would have looked better with the Stafford wingtips...

                              Vicious, this looks nice, but that polo yesterday was like a bespoke shirt.
