Yeah, but that jacket can't be used in conjunction with other jackets, whereas shirts can. Unless I want to be the mt_spiffy of jackets.

@kulata 

Question - What's up with the amateur drawing on your face? Why not blur or just white out? :D

Dude, the drawings are one of my favorite parts of Kulata's pictures. They crack me up.

'Tis is true. He's so consistent with the drawing too!

I guess then we need to see what your full rotation is if you'd like us to fill in the gaps. Post up, sucka!

But that's unlikely to happen anytime soon unless I get a windfall large enough for Mrs. Clags to grant permission to get another jacket. More than likely I'll get something from Suit Supply sometime in the fall.
In the mean time though, I'm wanting some shirts.
So.
Noodles Good Natured Advice Thread. I need some advice. Most of you folks know what I'm working with. Help me add some zest to my dress.

im not a fran of zesty shirts. simple solids, stripes and checks are all that i like. my only idea would be finding some shirts with some kind of texture, like raw cotton or cotton/linen blends.

you have plenty of zesty pants, you are not a huge shoe guy, and i dont like zesty ties either. id say to be patient and some zest in future jackets and suits. get some browns and what not.

I hate Disneyland. A few years ago, my foolish friend booked a week long stay at the Disney resort in Orlando for a group of 10 or so grown men and women. I spent half a day at the Magic Kingdom and got so ticked off that I just rented a car and went to Clearwater Beach by myself. I would not go back to Disney even if my kids begged me...when I have them. 

 

Anyways, metal buttons on a suit is bad but on a SC is fine, I believe.

Just got back from Orlando Saturday.  Can honestly say the kids are the only reason we went last week and the only reason we would go again.  If I'm going on vacation for me, there are other places I would much rather go.

I forgot you said you were going too...Yeah I understand that sentiment. I'm a Disney nerd/ Animator so it has a place in my heart, or I thought it did lol. I just went with my Wife hoping it would be a fun lighthearted, be a kid type of getaway fully expecting some craziness but I underestimated it for sure. I thought I was going in a slow time, week after spring break/Easter but it was still nutty. It was Fun but I'm fucking wiped. Next vacation is going to be a vacation.

@jungleroller, metal buttons are perfectly fine on a navy blazer and have been so for a very long time. Brass or gold are a bit more common than silver, but I have a double breasted navy blazer that I had made up with silver buttons that works very well too. Generally you want either the fabric, pocket type or buttons to in some way differentiate an odd jacket vs. a suit jacket, especially something like a solid navy blazer. The metal buttons will clearly show that it is supposed to be an odd jacket and not part of a suit.

^^^ I have blue jackets with brown horn, smoked mop, gold and gunmetal. I wear the gold the least by far.

I normally refrain from posting anything like this, and I know you still have lots of growing up learning to do, but you should try to not use the above bolded word, especially in this context.
