3) tailored odd trousers + BD (OCBD for cold weather, linen for warm).
So, I would do #3, with loafers or bucks.

yeah, that's what I figured.

what about thicker shirt for cold weather? like wool or cotton chamois?

No, sir. I walked across the room to confirm that it was a tie. This one definitely fell off the turnip truck.

Good God, the suit-with-backpack look. I swear I see this at least once a day, and I cannot fathom the thought process that produces it.

^ Yep.  That's pretty standard in London too.  A place I visit regularly professionally actually issues their staff with rucksacks (mandated by health and safety legislation) to carry their work laptops home.  So if you leave in the late afternoon, you see a stream of people leaving wearing suits without ties toting identical backpacks.crazy.gif

This seems to have become de riguer among corporate and political leaders when speaking to the media.

I just want everyone to know that I am wearing cargo pants and a corporate-logo'ed Land's End polo today.

Would you wear sweaters much if you were in an office where people didn't wear jackets?

I always figure any year I'll be stuck in Biz Cas land. I don't know whether to let my likely future affect my current purchasing.

A craftsmen forum shoulde be more your cup of tea, just for your $0.02

what gives you the impression I'm not interested in clothing? I like clothes.. I usually spend a couple of hundred dollars every payday on something to wear, sometimes I save up for few months to buy something little more expensive.. I just have no interest in suits..

Sounds streetwear and denim is a more appropriate forum.
