Finally picked up a pair recently and I'm inclined to agree. Especially here in Asia with a lot of shoes on/shoes off places.

Cuffs for any suit with the possible exception of a solid dark color in a modern trim cut. Any suit in any color that has a texture or pattern looks best with cuffs IMO

Late to the game, but decided to play today....

-a blue odd jacket. If you live in a two-season climate, then two, one for warmth and one for the cold - check x many
-mid gray flannel pants -check
-decent, non-chino khakis - check
-at least one funky (but tasteful!) non-blue tweed jacket - check x many
-a mid to dark gray worsted single-breasted suit - check
-a navy worsted single breasted suit - check
-a white FC shirt - check
-several blue BC shirts, at least one BD - check x too many
-black stitch caps - technical check as I own a pair but the rarely see the light of day
-some tasteful brown oxfords (exact configuration up to you) - check and check
-loafers in medium brown calf, suede or shell or else burg shell - check for all three
-a solid black tie, knit or grenadine - I do have several solid black ties, however none are knit or grenadine....
-a solid navy tie, knit or grenadine - check check
-a plain white linen hanky - check by the dozen

For the "more advanced" players:
-at least one DB suit, navy worsted or medium gray flannel (the best dressers will have both) - check and check
-at least one linen suit - not as yet, but soon
-at least one pair of brown suede shoes - check
-at least one formal tie, e.g., a B&W shepherd's check - check
-at least one wool or cashmere tie - check
-at least one linen or linen blend tie - check

If necessary
-A complete, well-fitting, correct black tie rig, including shoes - check x two and full white tie rig as well
-An overcoat in navy, charcoal or camel[/quote] - check, check and check

Does this qualify as funky tweed?

No. Very staid, in fact.

The red/orange and yellow windowpanes are pushing it out of my personal comfort zone. Living on the edge! biggrin.gif
