Some years ago I foreswore white in favour pale blue solids and stripes, with the odd pink. Then I decided I might prefer dark suits and white shirts.The truth is, there's a place for everything. A white shirt looks great with a navy suit and a vivid tie, but a grey suit tends to want a bit of colour to warm it up, I feel.Were I to have a choice of one shirt for the rest of my life, I might go white, but fortunately that's not a choice we have to make....
There were some "Santoni x AMG" shoes advertised in Monocle that weren't that unattractive but not nearly worth the money. Actually, an apt companion for the A Class AMG with which they were pictured...
I can't get into 'popovers'. For some reason they feel less formal than a polo shirt to me. Also, because they're not generally knits, don't they crumple up around the middle?
1 and 2 are probably the most classic. 2 looks a little narrow but that might just be the way they're set up...

I came across these wallets while in search of linen OTC socks (alas, in the Northern winter, they are out of stock: everything is wool): http://bergbergstore.com/leather-goods/wallets/suede-lined-vachetta-leather-wallet-toffee-chocolate.html Suede lined wallets seem a little odd to me, and I'm almost afraid that it wouldn't be sufficiently robust BUT on the other hand it would also probably be quite thin/light, so if treated well, it could work. And they are very...
I have two by G. Inglese, gonna test drive it tomorrow so I'll post a pic then. They sit well enough under a jacket worn with chinos. My BDs are all all Polo, and too baggy to put under a suit...
All this talk of white chinos makes me want to wear white chinos tomorrow, however I'm fairly certain that I don't fit into mine after winter... Speaking of summer attire, what do you think of one-piece collar shirts with a suit (no tie)? I don't half mind the idea, and I like it better than a normal shirt without a tie. I ask because a) I'm looking at going to work for a guy who's fairly anti-tie and b) I nearly died of heat exhaustion today walking ten minutes up the...
