Hey Kappelan, just curious: the pics on torontomanblog -- are they of you & your friends, of random people in TO, or gathered from the interwebs? I must inhabit the wrong hood, because I've not seen much of this kind of fashion 'round here...

Here's an example of something in the area of black and dress casual.

Sorry chaps but these huge broad check jackets may get you praise from a handful of virgins on the internet but in the real world people are wondering why you are wearing clothes from the decade that style forgot.

I respectfully disagree. I think this jacket can be hip if worn properly and with the right attitude. I can safely say that I can pick just about any other jacket from my wardrobe and look better and more refined, but I like the challenge and the fun that this one brings.
I wouldn't call it dated, it's just funky.

I did that last time, it was just okay. I wanted to try something else this time. I start having doubts that anything with this jacket can be brilliant. Decent and fun at most, so I'll shoot for that.

I do think that the informality of the jeans in particular helps sync up with the craziness of the jacket. Wide-wale cords would be another option. Maybe moleskin or cavalry twill too. In terms of footwear, you might also want to try brown chelsea boots or something like that if you want something different to the suede shoes.

Thanks, I'll think about cords. Not sure I can picture it right now, but it might work.

Perhaps I have just found myself the victim of cognitive bias.

No, that is, indeed, the best safest way to wear it. You are absolutely correct.

In that case I revert back to my suggestion of a pink shirt, brown donegal pants, and suede shoes. At least, I think that's what I suggested.

I didn't really expect that foo.gif would see the intended humor (though I hold out hope!), but I'm happy you did.

Apparently I should clarify that today's suit is dark chocolate, not black.

Maybe a few get inspired, my first steps into blogging.
