      Color scheme- are you an apartment?

      Great colors and they all pair nicely (grey white and burgundy)- I dig the pocket square.

      Who makes the shoes? Also, I would put a dimple in the tie- it really needs a good pinch and squeeze.

        I think the pocket square looks fine. Details on the jacket?!?

          Haha be nice...I'm new to this game.

          Shoes are Allen Edmonds McCallisters (my new babies!).

          Jacket is BR: http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse...&pid=675047002

          Got it during their recent sale and stacked with a bunch of Banana card certificates. The chest runs a little small, but the shoulders are perfect for me.

            My favorite combo: light blue shirt, navy suit. If you like compliments it's a great combo.

              Great suit. IMHO, if you're going to dress it down like that, less formal shoes are warranted.

                You'd wear suede oxfords? Or loafers? I mostly wear a tie with my suits, but when I don't I wear the same shoes (generally oxfords) either way. I do wear loafers with sport coats and trousers.

                  Suede would be great; a lighter shade of brown and/or some perforations on the shoes would probably do the trick, too. (I'm not much of a loafers with suits guy.) I just think the top block is asking for something less formal than dark-ish brown captoes.

                    I think it looks fine. Bluchers are tough as they could look fine or completely out of place quickly. I am looking for a pair myself and haven't figured out what I want yet. If there is a suggestion that would go with the suit above, that would be awesome.

                      Totally appropriate in this context, but it strikes me that that thought has probably led to more than one sexual harassment claim.

                        [MENTION=4069]JBarwick[/MENTION] I think a split-toe blutcher would work very well. Think EG Dover (or, you know, something similar that real humans can afford).

                          I like the pocket square -- the yellow in it contrasts well with the sweater you're wearing. Awesome jacket, too. I think something's wrong with your face, though...

                            For no-tie suiting, I'd probably opt for some brogues, suede or maybe monkstraps (if you have those in the closet). I save my clean lined oxfords in dark brown and black for when I'm in full business formal attire. Mostly I'm in some AE McAllisters or the like.

                            Splitting hairs at this point though, it's a solid look. Again, jealous of the SuSu fitting you -- if they had a fit that worked for my drop / buttsize, it'd save me a ton of money (at least per suit... although I'd probably be buying a lot more suits, so maybe a wash in terms of $$ spent overall).

                              Trying to be transparent lately.

                                A friend of mine was telling me the other day about a time she put a boot in someone's sternum because he tried a pinch and squeeze on her.

                                Much safer on ties.
