? Trousers come unfinished, you can put a cuff on them or not...

If trousers come cuffed, it's dead easy to remove them. If it's the other way around, there's often no enough extra material left to make a proper cuff.

Also why would you think that cuffs are more common in the US ?? uhoh.gif

Shawl lapel SCs... Hm. Next big thing? One never knows.

Got a chance to take a nicer picture today. And more elegant too I suppose :)

Still struggling with this casual thing (you'll note a lot of my tie/shirt/jacket combinations have uneven levels of formality). Formal suiting is so much simpler. Buy a suit, have it tailored by someone who knows what they are doing, wear a conservative shirt and soporific tie. But introduce jackets with patterns...scary stuff for me.

Also, the shirt is pink, not white. ADJUST YOUR DAMN MONITOR STITCHY!

clags, i think you did well with the color combo. though some will never like a white shirt and SC, i am not one of those people. however, it looks like a white on white stripe, i dont love those.

also, the tie seems a bit too slick for that country SC, maybe try a wool, or cashmere, something with more texture, softer and earthier.

Well, if you must wear the tie, you get the Official Digmenow My Boss Makes Me Wear This Hall Pass™.

Brudduh, truer words hath never been spoken. I've been looking for a navy SC for a while now. Hell, I even have a Borreli shirt I'm trying to trade to get one (shameless self plug). I'm also trying to land me some tweeds as well, as I have a lot of earthy trousers to work with. For what it's worth, I really don't disagree with anything in your first post. I just thought I'd give the rationale for the fit.

I believe today's is decidedly better, and tradly as hell. I only wish the tie was a touch wider to balance the lapels.
