Really liking this; probably my favourite look of yours. Much more saturated/richer colours than some of your other outfits, with is something I naturally tend to enjoy.

I dig all of this. Probably more for a casual day, but still, I really dig in.

Good man. BTW, the shirt is great. If custom, what book/fabric?
I wonder if anyone ever joined a regiment or went to a school because they liked the tie.
I chose my college at university partly for its reputation for better-than-average food, partly for its wine cellar, partly because it's really pretty... and yes, partly because I liked the scarf colours.
Grey solid jacket, crazy plaid shirt, spread button-down collar, no tie with the sport coat, a pocket square without a tie, argyle socks and frankenshoes. I think I covered a lot of no-no's here But you make a good point that I could definitely have added navy trousers in the mix
I actually thought they were navy trou - hence the comment. I all looks pretty good though.
gdl, Those trousers have no loops, my only pair of odd trousers in that configuration. I may get them sewn on, actually, as I think have enough cloth left over. I like the cleaner waistline on a suit, but maybe it is too dressy for wearing with odd jackets. Trini, White shirt would definitely be safer--that's more sober than I typically dress, though probably more classically within the limits of CBD. Details of cloth on coat and shirt which are lost in the other pic (very small hopsack and micro gingham). I'm not terribly good at taking these, but here's a shot at it anyways.
Better shots of today's PS for Manton. From memory it's a silk/linen blend:
I've got a black on white cotton map of London in 1852 too, but I don't like it as much. I think Ordnance Survey Maps or Navigational Charts could make interesting pocket squares, but I've yet to find any.
