@Chulillo, I got this one, not the wool bomber.

I have a knit jacket already I remembered and I don't have anything like this that I'd wear to clinic if it's rainy. Thankfully the bomber's sold out now and I don't have to fret about which to get! I have a similar J Crew millerain jacket that's barbour-esque like the one you just posted, but it feels more casual to me than the trench.

I looked at that one too. Post a picture when you get yours so we can see how it really fits, please (I don't usually trust publicity pictures haha)

Really like the second fit here (bottom three photos). Really sharp country look.

I'm wondering if there's any take on this kind of look?

 

 

I have a garment-dyed linen in newport blue (same color as the DB up) and a pima cotton pants in admiral blue (a little darker than the pants in the photo ). Any consensus?

Maybe not a good fit for hiking through the forest, nor should those shoes be worn anywhere at any time, but beyond that I don't see why not as long as there's enough contrast between the two blues.

@mc2k JC makes some good points there.

Now I wouldn't be quite so categorical about green shoes, as the owner of several pairs. But those loafers are pretty bright and the whole fit is pretty GTH, so I'm not sure you'd need the shoes. Some brown suede loafers would let the trousers and jacket carry the fit, while still fitting the relaxed vibe. You could go with espadrilles too or maaaaybeee even plain white canvas sneakers.

Overall, I'd say no reason not to give that style fit a try. You'll post a photo when you do, right? wink.gif

Certainly not the shoes, gentlemen:) I should have stated this in my earlier post.

 

@FrankCowperwood

Actually I already did today, was only looking for a confirmation:bigstar:. Got some pretty nice compliments, although I doubt the sartorial judgement of the source of those compliments. Not sure about posting a fit photo though:facepalm:

Well, look who doesn't need the Internet's approval to dress himself! Ha ha . smile.gif

What shoes did you wear, out of interest? Another thought for something jazzy to go with them would be spectators. You need to take my advice with the caveat that I tend to like fairly loud shoes. :shrug:

And glad to hear you got positive feedback. I think sometimes compliments can come as much from a place of recognizing that you are making an effort as much as understanding what you are getting at. And that's OK in my book.

Frank, don't lead our new friend astray. You should ALWAYS dress how the internet says. If just one person says they don't like it, burn the item and apologize to the community. nod[1].gif

Spectators for sure. And I don't personally wear them, but I feel like snuff/fox suede dub monks would also go with that fit. I'm not against green, I have some Loden suede boots and that's a lovely, subdued shade.

As for compliments, I get the most off-the-cuff remarks when something I'm wearing is, for lack of a better word, obvious - most of all if it's uncommon: orange tie, suspenders, colorful PS. My favorite compliment is simply "he dresses well" or when coworkers and friends ask me for advice. And thank god they do, because all this time spent on Styleforum has to count for something, dammit.

After some thoughts, here we go @jcmeyer & FrankCowperwood:smarmy:

 

 

Mind you, I’m from Accra, Ghana, and it gets pretty hot here. Average annual temperature is about 27 degrees celsius (about 80oF). Was about 93oF today. I can get pretty sweaty depending on what I’m doing so since I was outside for a bit, I kept my linen shirt almost fully buttoned-up to avoid exposing any sweat that might come on my chest.
