I'd go with a blue shirt though.
Aren't those shoes a bit blobby for ya too? Lol
i went for white in honor of the lovely spring weather. wanted something bright and crisp. also, i dont buy into the white shirt mania. white is not only for weddings and cinderella balls imo. i believe they have a much broader use. blue shirt is not the be all end all of shirts for me.
Just moved from Michigan to San Antonio for a new job, so I've been away from SF for a few weeks.
Welcome to Texas! Try to take advantage of San Antonio's location. There are so many things to do within a couple of hours' drive. The Hil Country area between and to the west of Austin and San Antonio is absolutely beautiful. Lots of cool little towns (Bandera, Kerrville, Helotes, Gruene, Fredericksburg, Llano). The Mexican (Tex-Mex, mainly) and BBQ in that area is outstanding (IMO, the best there is). You've got to see a show at Gruene Hall (Flores Country Store in Helotes is fun, too); Austin, once you've left I-35, is a great place to spend a weekend, too. Not the greatest beaches (Corpus Christi and Port Aransas), but beaches.

Also, any wardrobe advice for this new climate would be appreciated, I've never lived away from Michigan!

It's also a very casual city. Shorts and tee-shirts everywhere. If this is how you normally dress then you will be a step above the common guy you see on the street.
Agreed. Enjoy the weather while a lightweight jacket is still a viable option; it won't be for much longer. You may need to completely revamp your pant collection. Only the lightest wools are comfortable from late April to early October. Even cotton twill pants can seem heavy; most of my summer chinos are more of the lightweight poplin variety. Linen and cotton/linen blends are obvious good options as well.
Get back to us in a few months and we'll get you moving toward some boots and a cowboy hat.
