      Thanks very much, appreciate it!

        Bonobos jacket, Tommy Hilfiger shirt, Target tie, Target pocket square, JCF pants, Florsheim shoes, Hamilton watch.

        Great fit on that blazer, and I really like the look of those pants in terms of cut and color. Did you buy that pocket square online? I was in my local one the other day and could only find the Merona squares in white. Jealous of that Hamilton as well!


          Target used to sell a 3-pack of casual handkerchiefs - one in a dark blue, one in light blue gingham, and I forget the color of the third. I got mine a few years ago but I remember they had the same pack for a long time afterward. I'm not sure if they still sell it or not.


            Getting my boy into wearing blazers.

            I think no a tie look for him works, and also I think it poses a strangulation hazard. No boy of mine will be wearing a clip on. I think that is grounds for disownership. Either he ties his bow ties himself or he learns a four in hand. He is going with the shorts and blazer look for now but I think at his age it is acceptable. At what age is it too old for the shorts and blazer look? 5? 6? He untucked his shirt, but I'll give him a pass because he had to use the potty.

            Does indochino or dragon inside do MTM for 2 year olds?


              LOL, that is too freaking adorable. Well done, sir.


                I just noticed he has really wide lapels. Hey boy! What is this 1970's? Slim it down to a 1.25" width and match it with a wide shoelace to keep the proportions right.


                  Couple to get caught up on.

                  From this Sunday:

                  And a day off today:


                    Been waking up too late to have time to take a picture lately. But took one today for the Friday contest.

                    Jacket: J.Crew
                    Shirt: Thomas Mason for J.Crew
                    Chinos: J.Crew
                    Belt: OG Penguin

                    PS: Tie Bar
                    Shoes: Salvatore Ferragamo



                      Tie: Jack Spade
                      Pants: Jcrew Thompson charcoal suit pants
                      Shirt: Charles Tyrwhitt
                      Shoes: AE Park Aves


                      Shirt: Charles Tyrwhitt
                      Pants: Gap Broken in Khakis
                      Tie: Ben Sherman
                      Shoes: Mercanti from DSW
                      Socks: english laundry

                      Think I'm gonna get both of these shirts taken in on the sides eventually since there's a bit of room


                        Great looks man. The fit of those gap khakis are stellar. I like the color and shape of your shoes from today as well.

                        What's the print on your jack spade tie? Looks interesting.


                          ^ agreed on the Gap chinos. Gonna have to remember to check those out sometime.

                          No WIWT pic here (mostly off-the-grid this week), but I will add a textual rundown of a simple, affordable getup that garnered the comment, "You two are the best dressed in the whole park tonight."

                          Now, the comment was made about my wife and I; *to* my wife alone; so there's that, I suppose. LOL - Dude was probably simply hitting on her, but still...

                          - navy cotton unstructured unlined blazer/SC (Merona Kensington)
                          - light blue OCBD (thrifted Saks 5th Ave, I think)
                          - dark denim (JCP slim straight - very 514-ish)
                          - brown suede driving loafers (BR Gabriel)

                          Nothing crazy. Nothing pricey. Just a reminder that a simple, classic, basic getup sometimes (usually) still does the trick. A lesson that Joe often reminds us of in the main site, and one that Barron at Effortless Gent also preaches a lot too. Thanks for the lessons, fellas!


                            Also cross-posting for the Friday challenge.

                            Jacket: JC Linen Herringbone
                            Shirt: Stafford
                            Pants: JCF Bedford
                            Shoes: Mercanti Fiorentini Cap Toe (these are due for a shine)
                            PS: Homemade
                            Watch (unshown): Timex on C&B nato strap

                            I really need to do a better job of picking up that bathroom after the chaos we call "bath-time."


                              @Fauxshow, @yoyorobbo thanks guys!, yeah I love those lived in chinos, I've gotten a few pairs when they go on sale its a great deal, I like them a little more than the alphas even. The Jack Spade tie is from Marshalls, but the pattern is actually an oil drill I think? and a donkey haha. They had another one that was a lighter blue with small rockets on it so I'm gonna try that one next week.

                              Most of the people in my office don't wear ties at all, so I figure I can get away with some more "outside the box" ones and still be a little more dressed up

                              Nice combo dackman! Looks good man

                                So I work in a very casual work environment. Most people wear fleece pullovers over t-shirts to polos and untucked button-downs. So about 4 months ago, I started "Neckwear Thursdays". Of course, I got alot of flack the first 2-3 weeks. But in the last month, a few people are following suit and/or making comments that they want to wear bowties. Anyway...WIWT:

                                Shirt: S. Oliver
                                Pants: H&M Linen
                                Bowtie: TB
                                Socks: Goldtoe
                                Shoes: AE Macallister
