Thanks for the comments and advice, everyone.

And that shirt's lower button detailing calls attention to the crotch-al area in an odd way. Your new Chimalas look great. And that red MTM shirt is insane. I think it will be too small for me, but I'll keep my eyes peeled!
Chambray with denim is classic!
I really can't wear longer/baggier shorts or my legs look like toothpicks. I'll give the chambray shirt a try with something else...

I know the Haversack styling can be pretty out there, and this shirt was probably tamer than most. I'll probably try it tucked at some point, but I'm pretty happy with it for a summer shirt as is.

They smell like flowers.

Thanks, man. I can't resist serious maritime type stuff like this!

I love the first fit with the haversack shirt. Nice. Couldn't resist...take the blouson off and wear the banadana with the tee and shorts...put the blouson over the red chambray...you have great pieces!
Thanks, I will give that a try! You can't tell from the pictures, but the red shirt is a bit tight in the shoulders. I noticed it was about an inch short in the shoulders compared to my measurements, so the guy who made it sent me a second one

Was it red? He mentioned he was making a similar red chambray for someone in the Philippines...

I can understand, but like I said, I really can't do long baggy shorts. Believe me, I've tried!

Thanks, it's really my only option at this point!
I usually put a beard on for winter, which works pretty well with my FW EG and MF stuff.

Yeah, I've thought about it. I'm so sick of dealing with tailors lately, though. I'll probably try shrinking it up a little in the drier when it comes time for a wash...
