yeah, I have on linen today. Accept the slouch or don't bother with it.

But the trousers stretch in the weirdest places and it makes the fit look bad.

Thanks. Very helpful.

sugarbutch Good to see that you try to keep this thread alive. I will get some opportunities to contribute come fall.
Nice mix of grey and blue, perhaps a little to wild color splash in the pocket for my taste.

C&A The burgundy bengal striped shit is a personal favourite of mine. I like how you combine it with the navy suit and tie,

Got the same feedback from DocHolliday in the good taste thread. If it helps, it sat down in the pocket a bit more during the day.

Does anyone replace collars on their shirts? Are they getting tossed once the sleeves and collars go?

If you'll allow an answer from a non-CBD dresser, I've been getting collars/cuffs on my bespoke shirts replaced when they fray. If the cloth hasn't faded signficantly - not typically a problem, though I just let the shirtmaker decide on this - I get them replaced in the same fabric. If it's an issue (or if I just want variety/a different look), I get them replaced in white (especially if I already have multiple solids in the same colour anyway). It's certainly cheaper than buying a new shirt, and also an opportunity to switch fastening style if you want. For example, l had couple of shirts changed from french cuffs to button cuffs, to add to their versatilty (it lets me wear them with sweaters).

I absolutely expected this to be the case in a non-CBD environment.

I'm having a hard time discerning whether replacing collars / cuffs on a non-white shirt with white makes it casual. Royalty would spare no expense and replace the entire shirt. If that is the case, I think I'll be building iteration 2.0 with business casual in mind.
