You might as well check out some of his knits and big coats while you're at it!

1. Thanks!

2. Not sure why it looks cheap, its a 100% cashmere number from Johnstons of Scotland, its a great scarf.

3. Not sure why it looks feminine, purple plaid is feminine? Maybe you can elaborate.

4. I will gladly look into into his scarves. However, I am cheap skate when it comes to belts and scarves. Who knows, maybe this will be my turning point.

5. Will do!!

Thanks for the feedback, mayne.

I don't think schneider is a good recommendation for you stitches, they're weirdly shaped and really bulky and I found the ones I tried to not fit under any of my coats.  Good thick wool scarves are, unfortunately, expensive, just like good wool sweaters.

 

If you want an affordable one, just get a pashmina from amazon:

Read the reviews if you go for a different style because the really cheap ones are fake and polyester.  They're lightweight, the patterns are usually great, and they're easy to wear. They also come in solid colors.

1. It's the stripes, I think. It just doesn't look particularly elegant.

2. It's that particular shade of purple. It's a bit pastel. Combined with the stripes it wouldn't look out of place on some teenager goth/emo girl.

Have not worn the bomber in forever

Thanks for the comments regarding my previous fit - I'm going to try and post fits a little more than I did before, which will hopefully continue to be a good learning process. Yes, I do lift etc. (do you even bro?) and I have a longer torso, which can skew looks. I'll revisit those particular jeans again soon without a tuck and look into some less tapered options as well.

Anyway, here's back to business casual. Maybe I overdid the blues and charcoal pants would've been better?

Cotton + Nylon / cotton broadcloth / wool flannel / cordovan

afixedpoint, That sweater looks very short, like you'd be in danger of having a belly shirt if you moved much at all.

Patrik Ervell sweatshirt, probably a bit too cropped, tried to sell it a while back. Liked the pattern so much, ended up holding on to it.

Great fit on the last page, btw.

i would agree. i am quite fine with my scarf choice, but i certainly am open to other options.

i want an awesome perfect scarf, preferably cashmere, and from an awesome maker, and i will spend up to one hundred dollar. any ideas? : )

KJ - thanks for the heads up on SS.

While plaid can be done well (again, see Schneider: departure scarf/pattern from Frozen Waves), this one is a bit tacky and the light purple doesn't help. It also looks thin and delicate, which doesn't help either. Lastly, the two patterns are a bit too busy together.

Though Schneider does have some seriously bulky scarves, he also makes some that are very thin or long and drapey, of which I have one of each. check the B&S, occasionally a really nice one comes up

From what I've heard, the most awesome perfect cashmere scarves are made by Loro Piana. Their source of Cashmere is from the ideal part of a magical goat that lives in a cold dark hole somewhere in Mongolia. But those are like $1,000, so I guess this post was pointless haha.

I quite like that scarf there but I personally feel a 12 metre long distressed BBS scarf would go better with that outfit.
