It's great.  I've been two or three times prior to this.  I was only there for a day.  We went to the biodome at Olympic Park and Old town.  I regret not getting to go to Schwartz for a smoked meat sandwich.

Good to hear. I love Montreal. I would move there in a heartbeat, but my French is horrible.

The things I would do for a Schwartz's sandwich right now...

What I really like also is pairing Suede shoes with cords, that work very well in my opinion. But this pair of boots is perfect with this trousers.

 

Thank you! I think that the reason that both suede and grain work well with cords is that they're textured. I've been struggling to work out what shoes went well with cords.

 

The important thing, to my taste, is to also have some contrast in the shoes and the trousers so I would think that a snuff suede pair of boots would work better here than dark brown.

 

So, texture for both trousers and shoes but contrast in the colours feels right to me.

@AAS

The quality is acceptable, I think. I'll rethink my approach:). Looks like you had a good time in Canada:fonz:

I need to upgrade my OCBDs...

I'm a fan of dudes doing tonal outfits—white shirts with tan jackets, light pants, etc. in contrast to full, well, contrast. Example from Pitti.

Anybody doing this well in real life? And if so, what shirt fabrics are you using? I will rock a white polo under a jacket, but with woven button ups (or popovers), what makes sense? I own only 4 white shirts—1 in royal oxford with french cuffs, 2 broadcloth spread collars with button cuffs, and 1 white OCBD. Only the OCBD really makes sense to me fabric-wise considering it's a summertime look (open collar is what I have in mind for this), but every time I wear it I feel kinda dumpy. I like the rakish spread or cutaway collar look.

Am I overthinking this? Should I just rock the white broadcloth anyway? Is there some other fabric I'm not thinking of?

Linen !

 

I do this look quite a lot in the summer time

 

Here is a collection of images from @dieworkwear 's recent post on the topic

When I was in Sicily last month I noted a lot of buttondown shirts, albeit with high(er) collars. Also, their oxford cloth is pretty light; from when I lived in Emiglia-Romagna I don't recall heavy, gnarly oxford cloth. A shame, really, because that stuff is great. Broadcloth buttondowns are pretty common there, and of course linen, as Greg mentions.

Tonal/low contrast looks are awesome. Go for it.

I think something with texture would be nice to balance the lack of contrast. I recently had @Shirtmaven make me a popover in white seersucker that I think would be great. I don't have a great image of it.
