  Apart from the fact that we are both wearing a blue three piece suit, I do not detect any significant similarities in fit, colour coordination, styling, etc.  As such, I can only interpret your comment as implying that you associate my outfit with serious fun.  Yes, I am that vain.
I posted these photographs yesterday, in the "What Are You Wearing Right Now" thread.     [[SPOILER]]   Comments are welcome.
  Thank you for your comments.   The suit is worsted wool, the necktie is silk, the shirt and the handkerchief are cotton (the shoes are leather).  I believe this is a very common combination of fabrics.  In fact, if you substitute the cotton hadkerchief for a linen one, you get the standard uniform of men's dress.  However, I have noted that, in most of my photographs, even the worsteds look like mohair.  Oh well.   The handkerchief was not folded carefully to look...

[[SPOILER]]   I feel like I am late to the party, but I am perplexed by the aversion regarding contrast collar shirts.  I think they can look very elegant, if they are worn in the right context.  In fact, I happen to own a shirt that is quite similar to the one Beckham is wearing in the photograph.  Is the following outfit ruined by that shirt?     Comments are welcome.
The pictures were taken at the end of each day.     [[SPOILER]]   Comments are welcome.
