Sportscraft is basically j crew. Their brixton linen suit is actually really well cut, low buttoning point with a good length. You can check them out at myer for the fit, or online, and I think they run some big discount on spends over 300.
Looks a tad small on the hips, hence the open quarters and rolls of fabric at the back of your waist.   Also, the upper back looks a little big, it could be taken in to clean that up.
Can't go wrong with blue suede shoes... Unless you pair them with a white jumpsuit of course.

The more you know!
The Aldwych continues to grow on me. The AE's look a bit "sturdy" in comparison.

Ah, cheers for that link! I had browsed that thread a bit, but somehow missed the important, first post. :p   And yeah, for me the Churchill is on the fence between interesting and ugly.   Actually, after seeing the last shape of the Dorchester (the loake site is a little thin on pictures of the shoe), the Aldwych is probably the one for me. Why fight it, it's a classic for a reason!
