    Respectfully, I disagree. I think there is too much dissonance between formal (suit, black captoes, and tv-folded white square) and casual (the knit tie and chambray (?) shirt). Fit looks excellent as always, [MENTION=13537]JDI[/MENTION], but I think a poplin and different tie--a neat or a grenadine--would elevate this. YMMV.

      Guess that makes me a dissonant.. I like it. ....inspired by something I saw in the current GQ...will find it later and share .. the pocket square is light denim colored chambray. iPhone camera seems to have issues with blues

        [MENTION=9652]vespertiliovir[/MENTION] - $20 pants with $20 in tailoring = some of my favorite pants. May send these to Luxire at some point to have copied in other fabrics.

          You should! I have two pairs of Luxire pants. The fit isn't quite perfect, but the quality of fabric--even on their lower-end stuff--is awesome. Toss in the fact that you can get everything made exactly the way you want it, and I don't know that I"ll ever get dress pants from anyone else ever again.

                  I have been looking for a cardigan that can work in a shirt/tie/sport coat kind of environment. I was thinking some sort of wool but other than that I am lost. Any recommendations as you seem to wear a lot of cardigans. Brands you suggest or ones to steer clear from?

                    This shirt is on the chopping block. Fits well but terrible collar.

                    Shirt/loafers: Hugo Boss
                    Tie: Lands End wool
                    Jacket: Bruce Field
                    Pants: BR

                      The BR merino wool cardigans are a nice layering piece without being too thick or breaking the bank. Uniqlo actually had very affordable linen cardigans that I missed out on during the summer which peaked my interested. I regret not jumping on a few just for variety.

                      I am actually a big fan of Club Monaco cardigans in both wool and cashmere. The cashmere one I have does pile a little bit, but it is ubersoft and uber warm.

                      If you have the expendable cash, I would highly recommend checking out Brooks Brothers (not Red Fleece line), J Press, and O'Connell. Going with a tie, you can always go with a solid color. Like sweaters, I do love that you can get different textures and fabrics. Honestly, I think you just need to play around and don't mind the Mr. Rogers jokes that will come your way when you first wear one.

                        Yesterday was probably the last summery day of the fall.

                            Looks great. Can you show a close up of the Moras? I'd like to see the color.
