I have three pair of RLPL linen pants. Two of them I wear to work regularly (Tan & light green). The other pair, bright lavender, only makes it out for casual events

Some of this may just be how the colors are displayed on my monitor. I'd like to see more contrast between the shirt and the square. Probably a slightly darker shirt. Perhaps the FHES-Ven-5-463. I might also go with some pattern in the square such as a paisley in which case I like the lighter shirt. Also, I think the color value of the pants and tie are too similar.

I've been looking for a good deal on some lace up dress/country boots for some time and not having any luck.

Well I actually want to make a pair of black shoes blue, but Crystal Gayle wasn't as helpful with the lyrics. Hopefully you guys will be more cooperative. I've got an old pair of Bruno Magli cap toes that I want to play with. The effect I'm looking for is a shoe that can essentially be worn as black, but conveys a hint of blue.

Just the headline for this auction made me throw up a little bit in my mouth. "New Mens Black Square Toe Tuxedo Shoes"
