    Thanks very much, bud. I wasn't sure if the black/white gingham was contrasting enough for the grey blazer, but figured I'd give it a whirl.

    I like it quite a bit. It's the full-cotton one from BR. Kinda wish it was unlined - or maybe the linen-blend one - although not sure I like the lapels on that one - as I'd wear the heck outta it this Summer - but it is what it is. I prefer the birdseye blue one the best out of the three BR blazers I currently have. I think it might be the 3/2 (or is it 2/3?) roll on the birdseye that is making a little difference in the fit/stance for me - dunno. It could simply be the color, as I tend to favor blues.

    SS Linen Brown
    Herringbone Sport coat
    CT red puppy tooth shirt
    Slidebelt Brown belt
    And not show AE Brown brown strawfut
    I'm really liking the jacket/shirt/square combo. I'm not 100% sold on pairing them with the linen pants, but I shouldn't be talking because I'm wearing a linen/cotton jacket with wool pants today. There's just something about pair the crinkled look with the structured look that feels a little off to me. Like I said, though, I'm just as guilty.

    The Givenchy actually isn't bad at all you nailed the smell pretty much but I think most of them go for that smell. I don't think I've had a cologne that hasn't got numerous compliments but the Le Man hands down gets the most attention, I have A&F that's quite nice as well, probably called "No Fatties". I'm beyond excited for the sample pack now

    I loved the Hugo Boss original from 1999 I think, been about 10 years since I've had it. It was more baked goods smelling.


    @Alan

    Yeah I need to iron/steam them a bit for sure now that I look at the bottom, what's awesome is I took the pants straight out of the box and wore them.

    I'm hunting for a good linen/blend jacket still, damn monkey arms! You should give me yours, I rather like the look of it

    Cool deal, thanks for the info and personal feedback/input. And yeah, the OCBDs that I was checking out on their site were the "Rhodes Collar" or whatever. LOL I kinda like the extra effort put into the naming. Any idea where their shirts (at least these we're talking about) are actually made? I've seen a mix of origins with their pants, at Nordy Rack, so just curious. I guess I could google it, but hey, that's takes the fun outta the convo.

    I would wear this. Heck, I would rub cookies under arms every morning if it wouldn't ruin the cookies. :-P

    I started to reply to shad0w's comment above, in way too much detail, so I'm gonna plop that over into a reply in the new thread, as soon as I start it. LOL - You wanna know if I'm procrastinating? Let me get back to you on that.

    Feel ya there, man. I'm wearing a Brooks Bros shirt today with which I basically *have* to roll-up the sleeves. I thrifted it, knowing full well that they were too short, but the rest fit great, so I told myself I'd just accept wearing it that way - rolled-up.
