    @Jake & @BJ: I really like those combos, fellas - especially the colors schemes.
    @BJ: That is a steal on that jacket, man. Nice!

      Well, then that should do the trick! Looks good.

      Is that a half-windsor? I have a really hard time getting my knit ties from TTB to make a nice 4-in-hand or a double, so often go half-windsor. I assume its just the nature of their particular knit.

        Yeah, you pretty much nailed it. The coat is a sort of herringbone wool deal that I picked up randomly from a Kohl's clearance rack. It's pretty warm for this time of year, but I don't think it will be able to pull full winter duty.

                This probably could have been my Friday Challenge entry, but I kinda like my outfit yesterday more.



                Jacket: BR tweed
                Sweater: JCF merino
                Shirt: JC OCBD

                Watch: TAG
                When I got to work I realized I forgot to put in my pocket square - oops!

                Wife said "don't you look dapper today!"

                  @Jamie: I like it! But I do agree that yesterday's FC entry was more appropriate. I always look at jackets and shoes first. Very nice on both.

                    I'm guessing that you're saving it for your impassioned defense of wearing shorts with sportcoats, ties and wingtips. Either that or an article entitled "Codpieces Are the New Black."

                      Hah! Well I won't give it away but (a) it's much more mundane and (b) almost as unacceptable in many circles. I'm going to be racking up the converts, though. Just wait and see.

                          Only problem I have with this outfit is that the button stance is wrong for my physique. I've been wearing the blazer open, but it doesn't work for WIWT shots.

                            id agree. that button stance is really high. is your top button unbuttoned on your collar? looks like it doesnt fit.

                              It seems to me that perhaps the whole jacket is short. That would certainly explain the high button stance. Unless it's just a cropped jacket. then I have no explanation.

                                yup. Jacket is definitely short. I bought it in the beginning of my style game, but I love the style so much, until i can find a nice navy herringbone jacket that is a bit longer, I'm gonna stick with it. It tends to end up on my more casual outfits. Today was a bit of an oddity. as for the shirt, I was working at my desk for a long while this morning, and my rule of thumb is, once the button gets opened, I don't close it again unless I have a meeting.
