I'm not a button-down person but that Kamakura collar is gorgeous. Really nice outfit, although I wouldn't have gone for a smooth print tie here.

Thanks, the collar looks even better in real life. I'm not a button-down person either, but Kamakura has seriously caused me to reconsider. I totally agree about the tie, I initially reached for a grenadine, but I've been wearing grenadines and knit ties all week long. Just felt like wearing something different today.

Estitch, that SC can be used for the Friday Challenge just with a few wrinkles on it. laugh.gif

 

BTW... it's awesome! Your daughter is definitely ready for summer! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I like this, but what's the thinking behind the rolled-up pants hem? Are you wearing/washing these trousers a couple times before getting them hemmed to get the shrinkage out, or is this some style thing I don't get?

thanks! but the jacket, as awesome as it is, is 100% cotton. no good for the linen challenge.

and mini stitch is indeed all ready for summer!

thank you, Y. the pants are rolled up as more of a casual detail. i plan on wearing these dressed down more often than dressed up, and hemming them like dress pants would put them squarely in the dress chino category for me, and i want them to be more versatile.

also, i like a pant roll on chinos. some do some dont, no biggie. smile.gif

But it wrinkles a lot too! I was thinking that my cotton SC could do the trick... but need tailoring so I don't think it would be ready for Firday.

Very nice DB jacket and white pants! I'm not hating on you, but I don't really get those poses, they look very uncomfortable. I never see anyone stand like that in real life.

nice fit, timo.

what i like best about this jacket, is how little it wrinkles for a cottone jacket. smile.gif

Hmm. There I was singing your praises the other day as one of the most reliably solid dressers here, and you go and do this. Despite the fact that this has already received likes, I don't think it works at all. The grey (well black and white herringbone) jacket doesn't go with the sand / beige chinos at all, and the very shiny monks are nice in themselves, but are also fighting with the trousers. I'm not sure the shirt goes either. But this is what happens to quite a few MC people when they do 'kashewal' - as you've noted yourself in discussions about MC and SW&D - take off the tie and people seem to get lost and nothing really hangs together.

 

So what would be my suggested improvements? If we start from the week's challenge and say that the wrinkled rolled chinos are the must-have item of the fit (and I don't mind the rolling as the sign of being 'off-duty'), I would go for a predominantly blue or other darker hued unstructured jacket - green or burgundy would also work (but not grey), maybe with a large overcheck, with these trousers. I'd also ditch the shiny monks in favour of something a bit rougher and more summery - light brogues, corespondants, something with some fabric, even (shudder) loafers or deck shoes.

thanks for the thoughts, flying monkey, but i could not disagree with you more. the only thing i could possibly agree with would be that the shoe pairing could be better, like chunky brogued boots, but even as is, i think the shoes work well.

sidebar - there is no black in that SC, its entirely gray and white. and i think khaki and gray is one of the best color combinations out there.
