Thanks and I agree on both counts. Would have looked better with my Mahogony AS armfields.

Tab collars are a fun retro style. I could never get on with them myself (too fiddly for me) but that's no reason not to like them in themselves. What I would say is that, similar to button-down collars, I think they benefit visually from having some tie space at the top. I actually prefer no/minimal tie space on normal collars, but ties with a tab collar (or if you really must, BD collars), do look better with some tie space to balance the narrowing below out visually IMO.

 

The rest of the look is really great; good colours, in balance.

The top buttons on the DB are similarly positioned to that on a Loro Piana DB I picked up recently. I found that they were both a little too high and too laterally displaced; it creates a slightly weird visual effect. I suspect it's an Italian thing, but whatever. My tailor suggested moving them into a more conventional position, and it made a great deal of difference to the overall effect.

 

No comment on the cargos! ;)

This is a pretty cool combo; the shirt's check is heavy enough to be quite a prominent pattern so leaving it just to the weave of the other items to echo its interest was a wise touch.

It must be an logarithmic scale then, because I always think that Spoo has way more items - and a higher turnover of new items - than me. There's about a dozen suits (total, not per season), a similar total number of odd jackets & trousers, and maybe around three dozen shirts, max, including casual ones. I might even be over-estimating those numbers from memory.

 

But I like playing around with colours a lot, so I tend to use more of the potentially available permutations than some would consider sensible, which gives the impression of a broader wardrobe. Talking of not-so-sensible permutations, the bright warm sunshine has gone to my head a bit, and I raided the summer half of my wardrobe for a couple of things:

Ive noticed theres quite a difference between english and italian DBs. Before, i had a more classic british navy DB, and wasnt as much of a fan due to the button positioning. I preferred the "button nipples"
