@Isolation
What color are the shoes?
@chocsosa

Everything fits well, as always. With the first look I am biased against large checks with suits so I'm not one to ask. I am also not a fan of suits without socks but it's definitely casual!
With the second look I like the top a lot. I have recently had an issue with trousers that have belt loops without a belt but a lot of better dressers than I seem to do it so it's probably just my personal preference. Trouser material also seems incongruent with the top block, maybe because they are a bit wrinkled.
With number 3, I love that polo and it makes me sad I just missed out on one in that color that I really should have bought. Here, I think the pant material may be too formal for the polo.

Just my amateur opinions, you've consistently shown that you know what you're doing and you're someone I look to for inspiration.

@chocsosa good to see you posting and congrats on the new job. You still doing the same thing just for a new company? I like all three looks but particularly the second. The fit of all the pieces is sharp and makes a relatively straightforward outfit look great.

@chocsosa, I wasn't aware of any SuSu 100% cotton suits, except for the Copenhagen fit and maybe 1-2 Hudson a year. It this one Hudson or Copenhagen? The lapels don't look skinny like the usual Copenhagen, yet the shoulders doesn't scream Hudson to me. 

 

Anyway, nice fit! I like all 3!

Thanks for the kind words Chaconne! I have had the gingham shirt for a while but really had no suits to pair it with really because its a casual design (especially with the large checks).. but this suit it works imo.. just due to the fact that this suit is a casual suit.. the design is casual (three patch pockets)... the fabric (100% cotton) and the fact thats its mostly unlined and unstructured.. so I think the suit and the shirt match perfectly..as for the whole socks thing, I am wearing socks but they are the no see kind that hangs right below the shoe..as for the second look, thats at the end of a long casual day being in a plane for a couple hours and being in a car for a couple too.. also it is a linen/cotton.wool mix so there will be wrinkling.. as for the third look, the polo is a dressier polo.. I tried them with jeans and it just did not feel right.. the polo provides a nod to the old school 70's vibe so what better way to mix it in with cotton pants.. thanks for the words though!

@VanVeen loro piana polo? That collar is nice mix between the statement eidos and a traditional cut.

@Isolation I like it, who cut the jacket?

@chocsosa I like the checks and suit since all other elements are subtle and casual. However, can't say I love the polo, the collar looks small on you.

I do love the smiles!

Yeah. I really like the collar and placket. It's short enough that I can wear it unbuttoned without channeling Tom Selleck.

@fairlynerdy Nice texture on that jacket. It's wool?
post #20995 of 23083
@Chocsosa, nice fits mate! I specially like #2. #1 is very GQesque, isn't it? To me that is not bad at all... sometimes being up to date doesn't mean one is wrong. Keep it up!

PS. Congrats on the new job then!

Thanks FC. It is wool, a loose weave with several shades of blue. From Universal Works, if you're interested.

Thanks. I was wearing brown suede Chukkas, and the jacket is a cashmere unlined thing from suit supply.
