    Looking good, guys. BJ, nice getup.



    It's unseasonably cold, so I packed away most of my cold weather sportcoats. I'm wearing this one over and over until it warms up... Or I get sick of it.

    @yoyo-Yep, the shorts are maroon (or burgundy, not really sure). My wife bought them for me from gap last summer IIRC. Not the typical heavy chino, but a nice twill (I'm guessing here, I know zilch about fabrics), which is perfect for the stupid hot temps we have already.

    Re: "the tuck" I have seen it done well both ways. I usually leave them untucked, unless I'm playing golf. I'm on the fence about your getup to be honest. I feel like something is off. Maybe the shade of the shoes/belt? Can't really put my finger on it at the moment. I think I would've gone with a button up w/ the sleeves rolled with those pants/shoes or shorts/tennys (or loafers) with that shirt. Just my thoughts.

    Cool. Maroon or burgundy - Regardless, they're cool.

    And I agree with your take on my getup. I really forced the shoes into the gig today. LOL - I thrifted them on Friday's drive home from work. Was immediately elated! Got to cleaning, conditioning and polishing them during the weekend, and simply *had* to wear them first chance this week. It was "a moral imperative!"

    But yeah, I agree; both other options that you suggested would have made for a more congruent look. Had I not just snagged the shoes and been all giddy about them, I would most likely have gone with some loafers, drivers or maybe even boat shoes; sockless. I try *not* to wear "tennis shoes" to work, but I certainly have on certain occasion, so they weren't totally out of the running either.

    Thanks for the honest opinion, bud. I appreciate the feedback!

    I like the suit, shirt, and tie, but I'm not sold on the shoes or the square. You really look good in that suit.

    DerekH, looking slick.

    Cologne guy, I like the casual look. Those are gorgeous shoes.

    BenR, The camera perspective makes me feel like a bit of food that's about to be devoured.

    Thanks! And I agree. My square collection is rather limited

    I'm swooning over this jacket, BenR...the second GAP runs another 35% or 40% off, it's going down! Love the look, by the way!
