I own over a dozen Church's, several Trickers, and several C&Js. I would say I really like the fit of the Church's (the 73, 100, and 173 lasts in particular), but think the leather is better on the Trickers and C&Js. So comfort wise my choices would be (1) Ch, (2) Tr, (3) C&J, for look/leather (1) C&J, (2) Tr, and (3) Ch. But you can't go wrong with any of them. To NYR--how did you find the Trickers Monk tight? I find the 5 fitting to be quite wide--wider than the...

Variety is what makes personal style interesting.

My only nit... ditch the pocket square on the topcoat. You already have one on your...

Very simple to get Ray Bans with mirror lenses. Buy the standard pair, and have the lenses crafted specially. I have a pair--with blue Zeiss polarized reflective lenses. Get compliments all the time.

There's a big difference between a "deep break" and your pants hanging perfectly straight because they're too short. Given this is a site that is ABOUT looking good, I just can't get my head around this infatuation with short short upturned pants w/ huge cuffs. Yet I should be ostracized for not going along with the...
They're pulling your leg... Incotex pants are at Bergdorf's and Barney's. Run from $295 - $350 or so depending on the fabric. It's all about the fit. While many brand-name cotton trousers are very full cut and shapeless, Incotex's are trim and well designed, although others are definitely getting on the slim-fit bandwagon of late--see RLPL, RLBL, Zegna, Etro, Borrelli, Slim-fit RL Blue Label, etc.
