UC, that's a perfect fall outfit, which suggests that I should be jealous of your weather right now.

 

Engi, I wish you'd gone for different shoes. A lighter color (deep tan) and more casual style (full brogue or loafer) might do you some good. I'm normally not crazy about chiseled lasts, but I think a slightly sharper edge there could look really good. I feel like the shoes, while elegant, are conservative enough to appear a little staid compared to the rest of your rig. You could also go the other way -- longwing gunboats might be cool with a rig like this.

 

Don Cologne, I happen to like the shoes, and though I agree that you might be well-suited aesthetically by a less built-up shoulder, if you prefer/are more comfortable in this kind of cut, then you're better off with it. You shoulders might also be square enough that they'll have a relatively constructed shape even with less padding/stiffness.

I'm pro monochromatic, but this is off to me.  There are four different shades of brown here.  They don't blend together well.  Also, those blue socks are out of left field given other colors are all brown.  I think this would be much better with a dark brown shoe and sock.

Stichy I love those Arran's and those colors work together perfectly

 

The beautiful orange tie is often unappreciated

Ok for the next suit, I try to thrift a less structured suit.

I suspect that a navy knit would have been the optimal choice, but I don't currently have one. It was nice to unwind for a short while on the beach after a pretty tiring day, and when the sun is shining the English coast really is stunning. Talking of which, before the longish drive back home, my colleague & I found an excellent restaurant to blow some of the profits from the day on and I had one of the best turbot dishes I've eaten.

You should check out the Welsh coast sometime, puts the English coast to shame. stirpot.gif

I like this a lot, though I think I would've preferred either a different, darker tie, or no tie at all. I will echo the comments so far on the SC. What fabric is that?

Nice! Really liked the colour!

Tried this with cream linens and no square today.

 

Loafers are cheapos I was gifted last year, still looking to get a decent pair.

 

Also, narrowed the wrap a little bit on the jacket.
