    In regards to your request; yes, I suppose I could. I mainly stopped posting brands because 1. Sometimes I really am not a fan on the brand that I am wearing, so I don't want it to be known. And, 2. I like to let the outfit make the impression, not who made. I know that I can make a snap judgment by seeing a name tag some and look right past whether or not it looks good. I also started cross posting a bit on StyleForm and there is no way I could ever play on the same level a lot of those gents do, so I never say what I'm wearing if I post there. I just keep quite and listen!

    Today we have - Plenty of SuitSupply, Spier & Mackay shirt collar polo, and Bonobos pants.

    I would also like to add that I have no idea what is going on with my jacket shoulder in that first pic, but that's not an accurate depiction of the fit.

    I think speak for most by saying that I'm not a brand whore and if you got all your clothes from Wal-Mart I wouldn't be less impressed (I'd be much, much more impressed). But if I see something I like it's nice to be able to go check it out online.
    This. I, for one, would be really interested to know what the brands are, especially if they aren't the more popular choices, so I would know where else to look and save some $. I think your photos speak for themselves Keep up the good work.

        I think, early on in this thread's life, part of the reason for listing brands was to show how good an outfit you could put together without having to spend very much money. (Lots of Target, Old Navy, H&M, thrift store finds, eBay finds, etc.) Since the forum has "grown up" a little bit and the members have gotten more aspirational with their purchases, some of that ethos has been lost a little bit.

          John, I totally agree with you. I think I finer polo, preferably Pima, would have blended in better. the one thing I didn't like was the way the polo didn't really blend. But, my polo stock is pretty limited. Basically just a handful of solids from S&M and Gap.

                I like this outfit, but if I were to offer one proposed change, it would be the choice of pants. The low rise on those particular pants isn't terribly flattering with a sport coat, so I'd have gone with a higher rise. I'd also have chosen a slightly dressier style trouser. Nothing wrong with chinos, but with that particular outfit (maybe it's just the tie?), I'd have made a different choice. Overall solid look, though.

                    Yep, Copenhagen.

                    I snapped a better pic over lunch. Shows the blue color better, anyway. It's more of a true blue than a navy.

                      I wasn't sure I'd love it, but got a true blue style blazer and I've really come around to loving it. It feels much more alive than traditional navy IMO.

                          Good look, I like the shirt colors. What collar on the S&M shirt? Would it stand (without magnetic collar stays) without a tie and the top button open?

                          Ordering some from S&M soon!

                            I'm pretty sure it's the semi-spread? Works ok without a tie. Metal collar stays would probably improve things in that department but I am too lazy to care about that kind of thing.

                            Here's a pic of the same shirt (different pattern) sans tie. https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0...32&oe=5857E7F7

                              Inspired by todays Best Of... post. Haven't done a WIWT in a while.

                              Shirt and jacket are S&M (thanks [MENTION=4365]Justang06[/MENTION]) and the shoes and pants are BR.
