That is hard, but I can do it, though some of the patterns will be really small ...

Really? Surprised you don't dig the classic look of that.

Ethan - awesome!

It is just a new incarnation of the liesure suit. It kind of works for Europeans (kind of) but it really doesn't work here. We tend to break down into "suit" cultures and "casual" cultures and we don't really blend those well. Don't confuse the longevity of a trend with its actual importance. Dockers took about 10 years to take off (sometimes things take a while to percolate) but were snuffed out rather quickly.

Thanks, but not quite. The square, silk/cotton was gray, but had a white overcheck.

In the first Manton pic, it looks to me like the red in the tie is clashing with the red in the PS. Otherwise, nice.
