heck yeah LA Guy. please wear an ascot or scarf like in that photo.   toasty, the Kamakura shirt is great. soft fabric, good construction and all the 1960s Ivy details -- if you care about that thing (I do). However, beware of bizarro sizing. I have two other Kamakura shirts and the fit is just hard to understand. I still have no idea how "Tokyo" and "New York" fits differ. I do like the collars on their BDs, but I'm not sure I'm the right body type for their pattern. 
 doesn't sound too horrible to me!

I'm waiting for the 1940s longshoreman MOK with the short hair, black boots and tough workwear jackets to come round the corner at any moment.   Its fun to see this flower-power side, too. (as you may know, I've got both inclinations as well). 
good place to post!   It kinda depends how stiff/heavy the canvas is inside the lapels -- or if there is any interlining at all. If the the jacket has a heavier canvas, it might look bad if you added a higher button -- and tried to button it. Canvas (or whatever interlining is used) is cut so that the lapel roll stays in place. It has "memory" so it wants to roll to the same spot, usually to the middle button on a 3 button jacket or the top button on a 2. Additionally,...
Both look good to me. Personal preference. I prefer a thin lapel and maybe slightly thinner tie, no slant flaps. (Unless it's a more military English cut suit). Looking good dude!
I'm getting a real Sleestak vibe from those.
 That makes sense. More of a sharp musician Motown '62 look, than the "all-American" college look -- even tho BD and loafers could probably be worn either way.
