Is foo.gif back to having a real job, or has he decided to move on to another thread? I want more foo.gif thrashings.

I would have buttoned the jacket cuffs, but other than that I think it is a perfect look.

I forgot the pocket square today. Given my track record with them, that may be a good thing.

Victor with coat and tie: good.

Victor with seersucker vest and no shirt: less good.

Navy pants and a gray odd jacket. I believe this warrants life in prison.

I found it at Century 21. It is made by Battistoni. Unfortunately, Century 21 is a bit of a crapshoot in that something may be there one week, but not the next.

This one is pretty close, though I don't think it is identical:

Over at A Suitable Wardrobe today, Will has a post repeating and clarifying his dislike of blue shirts with grey jackets as being directed more specifically toward charcoal. http://asuitablewardrobe.dynend.com/2013/02/i-contradict-myself-sometimes.html. I'm curious what others think about this. I recently received my first real charcoal suit, and I frequently find that the combinations that work well with my lighter greys don't look quite right with it? For example, here's yesterday:

Is Will right? Are blue shirts the culprit? Or is it blue shirts and ties together with charcoal? Or is there some other trick to successfully pairing items with charcoal suits?
