Thanks for the thumbs and feedback (positive and constructively critical) on yesterday's seersucker rig. I'm still in the process of questioning my own sartorial assumptions, and frankly, it's more fun to take calculated risks once in a while than to always play it safe (another assumption still under examination). Anyway, thanks for taking the time to share your opinions with me.
As for today, a much more conservative choice:
O'Connell's navy blazer
BB shirt and tie
RL trousers
AE belt and shoes (both are suede)

@TheoProf Have you ever considered shirts with spread/semi-spread collars? Like me, you have a relatively long neck and I feel that the narrow pointed collars you wear exaggerate this feature even further / too much.

@doomx, I like the color of that jacket.

 

@TheoProf, I like all of this. One nit--any consideration to the gig line? Myself, I'm a compulsive gig-line checker, something ingrained by my military background.

I suppose you have tried cuffing your trousers and not liked it, I just want to add that it would go really well with the aesthetic here, especially of this suit. Are your pants pleated btw?
 

 

Thank you!

 

The last time I wore cuffed trousers was in the early '70s, when it was a thing. I didn't really like it then, and I don't like it now. It's perhaps the one element of sartorial taste that hasn't really changed through my life. To my eye, cuffs look wrong; ugly. Worse, they can look (to my eye, again) juvenile. This is purely a matter of aesthetics; there is no objective standard that says cuffs are correct in one context and not another. It's a choice I get to make, and I choose not to have cuffs on my trousers. Once again, to my eye, the aesthetic of that navy blue flannel suit is completely consistent without cuffs. Having beaten that particular horse to a pulp...

 

All my trousers are pleated (except for RTW, and those get worn less and less these days). Almost all of them have double forward pleats. I experimented for a short while with single forward pleats, much to the distress of my tailor, and I ended up with about three pair with single pleats before switching back to double forward.
