    First off, that's an awesome flannel. Would love to have something like that.

    Second, I couldn't remember seeing a look like what you're describing so I tried using google image search to get some ideas. Not much came up for flannel/buffalo check/cpo shirt worn over a dress shirt, and I didn't see any examples with a tie. This is the closest I could find to what you're describing. http://www.shopbird.com/product.php?productid=32800

    So maybe try it with a white oxford cloth button down and a knit tie in order keep everything pretty casual. I'd be interested to see how that works out, but personally I don't think I would bother with the tie.

    What pants and shoes were you thinking of using? Again I'd go casual so jeans and desert boots or something like that.

    If it's really hot out, just terry cloth insoles.

    Thanks, I'll try the ocbd and knit tie route.

    I have a grey black buffalo check flannel that I feel I can pull off the look decently well. The red is just much less versatile, it seems.

    Any recommendations for a shirt material in light grey that doesn't show as much sweat as regular cotton?

    does one still follow the sometimes-always-never buttoning rule for this kind of jacket?

    Hi Dappered, I bought a bunch of thick socks (e.g. https://factory.jcrew.com/mens-cloth...name=navy-blue). Would wearing these socks stretch out my shoes significantly? I intend to wear them with chukkas. In general, would thick socks stretch out shoes in general? Appreciate your help.

    Since when do hippies wear shoes?

    Anyway, I've never heard of one case of someone's socks stretching out their shoes. If it was happening I think you would be noticeably uncomfortable.

    @hippiecrap -- the shoes may get a bit snug with those socks on, but I wouldn't worry about stretching them out. If you're in the market for some more pairs of thick socks I would suggest Costco's Merino wool option -- 4 pair for $11.99.
