Hey Fred, what is the one kitchen accessory/appliance you could not do without?
Sorry for the post that has nothing to do with the thread topic.

thumbs-up.gif Personally I like suits in shades of blue and gray better than brown, but this combination works well.

I don't know - I wear mostly cotton pants with my sport coats. I just like the feel and fabric juxtaposition better than wool on wool. And to me, sport coats are my take on business casual, so double-soled norwegers, knit ties and cotton pants all fit the concept. I may be in a minority here on these points

no, i think i am. i just have a hard time visually with almost all wool type SCs and cotton pants that look like cotton pants. i pretty much only wear wooly/cashmerey SCs with wooly/cashmerey pants. my loss.

Stitchy, gdl is in the minority on these points. He looked good today, but he was absolutely outside the conventional wisdom with the juxtaposition. I think it worked (just) because of the weight of the cotton fabric and the bit of sheen the twill (?) imparted. Unlike unbuttoned jacket cuffs and flyaway ties, that combo shows real sprezzatura. Or, to translate for you, bubbeleh, spreezy.

lolz, those words i am familiar with. also, i know already that you lean more to my side in the cotton pants/wooly SC debate. and that makes me happy.

I'll disagree, SB. Khakis make for a casual pairing with sportcoats, yes, but the combo has an unquestionable pedigree. It's been a mainstay of the Trad/prep/Ivy look in the decades since WWII. Beyond that, khakis and tweed are both rustic, casual cloths.

SF hasn't much cared for the look, but I suspect that has a lot to do with the pendulum swing of formailty many of our posters experience after finding/seeking out the forum.

for me, the issue is more than cotton almost always looks wrinkly/crumply to me. even gdls khakis, which i would classify as nice khakis, still have a cottony, unstructured wrinkly/crumply look to me. whereas his SC has a smoother, cleaner no wrinkle/crumple look to it. most wooly/cashmere-y coats do to my eye.

now, tweed, thats a closer aesthetic for me, and certainly cotton SCs match the cotton trou. but i still have a visual impairment with SCs like gdls, matched with khakis. like i said, my loss. i know a lot of well dressed guys here do rock that look, and you have backed it up with history. im sure its legit, my personal eye just has difficulty with it.

My sentiments exactly. I have worn chinos with SCs and their wrinkly nature brings down the SC. How else to dress down SCs without the wrinkle effect?

I think u guys forgot most GDL's fit is a bit on the relaxed/casual side.
