 Yeah, it was obviously so on my screen too, and I think the trousers were enough of a brilliant/optic white to contrast with the more drab jacket. Perfectly fine, IMO. More generally, I also think that you get get away with more tonal (rather than contrasting) outfits in summer than winter, due to the brightness of the sunshine making small differences clearer. You can see the same principle at play with some other spring/summer combinations such combining pastel shades,...
 Maybe loosen the belt one notch so it falls both a little lower on the waist and lower at the shoe? I generally like a standard+ rise myself, but with chinos - or at least this pair - I think it looks a bit high on you. How have you not owned a pair of cotton trousers up to now? :) Very short, no? And very high buttoning point. I don't think the combination flatters you IMO. Spoo - you know I love funky colours & patterns too but this combination is just too much for...
 Nice outfit, but do you like how the sunglasses look; are they gold-rimmed (difficult to tell from the photo)? I don't know man, I've never dug gold-rimmed sunglasses, esp. on cooler complexions. If you still want gold, I reckon a rose gold might suit you better.  Superb!! I especially like the chain. I was thinking about wearing my pocket watch today, but figured my tie was leery enough already. Now I'm wishing I wore it anyway. Great look!  Pink suits you. Really nice...
DIfficult to think of a pose that showed the waistcoat and the fit of the suit adequately at the same time, so this  was very much a compromise that likely falls between both stools:  
 Can't tell if this gag is about Boss wearers doing this with the actual label, or a swastika armband reference. Well done, sir. Well done.
 I do like slightly seedy connotations, 'tis true.  I'd second the suggestion of a black tie with this. The just-lighter-than-navy tie and dark brown suit are very strong visual counterpoints, with the white shirt only enhanced the contrast. A black tie would "settle" down the centre of the look, evening things out. Also either a wider collar (to go down an SF route), or a smaller one (for a non-SF look).    Casual day: 
 No worries guys; glad I had the photo handy. It's a very nice colour. I think it works best with lighter trousers: cream, beige, butterscotch, etc. It's also decent against denim. I haven't tried it against grey, but I think it would probably be best against a pretty light grey instead of mid-grey. It's very much a summer jacket, and I prefer it to the other Havana linen (blend) jacket I own. I like how the tobacco colour works with my skin tone and think it's partly...
 Wore it last week: http://www.styleforum.net/t/234255/hof-what-are-you-wearing-right-now-part-iii/78150_50#post_7139990 Close-up pic is more colour-accurate than the slightly washed-out full-length; you're right about it having a coppery undertone.
 Very nice indeed; perhaps buttoning just one more button on the waistcoat would keep it in check a little more when sitting down (it's fine as is when standing), but I really like the overall look.  Congrats; I lol'ed to see you did a stereotypical "SF uniform" post by way of commemoration!  Also, congrats to stitchy on his birthday. What with this, and AAS' anniversary, clearly these are auspicious times...  Make that, "one-of", and I'm on board. It's great.  Great...
