General agreement from me. I used to be a frequent proponent of polo plus blazer / SC even though its SF heresy, as I never felt that comfortable with an open necked shirt, (and I don't like OCBDs) but little by little, and with some nudging by well executed pics on here, I'm coming around to it and probably wear an open neck shirt and blazer more often these days than blazer with a polo.

 

Thanks for the feedback fellas; yeah, I can see what you both mean. If I'm really honest, part of the reason I wear polos with jackets in summer is the same reason I wear turtlenecks with them in winter: it saves me having to iron a shirt at the end of the week! But if I'm going to wear solid polos - and all my polos are solids - under a jacket, I should probably pair them with something patterned elsewhere, to break it all up a bit, especially at weekends.

Ps, will try and get a tripod for full fit shots!

I like that cheekiness. Nice fit, too. BTW, you don't necessarily need a tripod for full shots; a handy shelf or window ledge or similar works just fit (although depending on its height, can introduce some distortions.

 

AAS - great casual fit. I don't even mind the boat shoes with it.

 

 

 

 

More or less casual today, although I was working:

Yes!

OK I'll expand a bit. I'm not a big fan of bit loafers, but nor do I have the knee jerk hatred for them that a lot of people on here seem to have. If that's your thing AAS, then good for you. Like I said you have a lot of interesting fits that might not always hit the target for me but I generally applaud your sense of adventure, but as I scroll down your pics it seems like your shoes are frequently a let down. I think your trousers are generally a bit short which draws further attention to your shoes. I don't have empirical evidence to back this up but my perception is that you frequently display variations bit loafers which seem to look overly worn, unpolished, and slack around the sides of the feet to the point that they resemble house slippers more than outdoor shoes, and as such they are in conflict with the level of attention you appear to have given to the rest of your outfits.

Even today I noticed you are wearing oxfords, but once again your inseam looks too short - (instead of shivering at your shoes, your hems are positively freezing!) and your shoes look like they are in need of polish and elbow grease. Again, if you are going for a sloppy/casual lived-in comfortable look for your footwear then congrats, you have achieved it, but IMO dialing up the formality a notch or two would greatly improve the overall look of your pics.

Thanks! I tried finding a shelf that was just the right height, but there wasn't one that would give the desired effect! You've got a good fit there. I think you've got the right combination of button stance and rise, well done!

It continues warm and humid today, and rain is threatened by this afternoon, so I have opted for a casual look - rumpled linen and a checked shirt. Hope that the effect is not too unsightly.

Shirt & trousers - BB
Shoes - Italian-made AE

Well,if a fine gentleman like yourself can go jacketless today in NY then I can too :-) I was debating it myself as the past few days has been killer wearing a full tie and suit!
Nice combo btw!

Great look. I wish I had more of yourself in my office, it would make me more comfortable being myself. Nice job (we're in a similar industry I suspect)
