I've already ordered the lace-ups (yes, I know, I know, but I chickened out of the pumps option in the last minute), but will definitely keep these in...
I'm assuming you have thought of pairing these with white shirts, for starters? Suits in these colours go with almost anything. From my experience, the charcoal grey is slightly more versatile than the navy blue, but both are very versatile. anyway Have fun!

I don't see scarves as 'fashion' any more than a pocket square or tie is 'fashion'. I like this response. If we can justify wearing pocket squares, which are not functional at all (unless you're one of those who use it to blow your nose), why can't we justify...

I don't know about you, but since Bond only exists as an "ideal", it is rather impossible for anyone to have met him. And I don't know why you bring in Pitt and Grant into the conversation, since they have nothing to do with this thread.

Quote: Originally Posted by mafoofan I kind of wished I had ordered mine with vents, but they would have looked supremely wrong with the shawl lapels. Sitting down in a ventless jacket is a pain. Why not order side vents and have them closed up later if you don't like the look? You can go one way, but not the other.
