the ladies love a man in uniform horses for courses IMO My inclination has gone 2 pleats > 1 pleat > none - Pleats look frumpy on me. bangin wears SS I was going to thumb u but I scrolled down too far.
To Sir with Love ? I like the square a lot. IMO the jacket is really very loud with a strong 'pattern' and it's rustic... so it wants to be paired with sedate, countrified partners. A smoothish tie, say a solid repp for a little bit of contrast with the SC rather than that rainbow (bordering on) novelty tie, or no tie at all, and a solid shirt in a darker blue or even a yellow.
I feel confident they would be awed by the dazzling effect of my blue suede loafers and popped collar. ...but for backup I would use my Rubinacci PS as an @menswear shield, and challenge them to discuss the relative merits of con rollino and spalla camica.
