That picture freaks me out a bit. Looks like your head has been lopped off.

There are two types of people in this world. Those who think they are individuals, and those who know they aren't.

Thank you. The jacket is a favourite of mine. 

The socks are royalblue/lightblue herringbone which probably looks fairly solid from a few meters away. I wanted to have a darker shoe and thus went for slighty dark socks. The light blue part of the socks are similar to the shirt. A lighter shoe/soc combo might have looked better but I wanted to ground the outfit with a dark shoe.

The socks colour should match the trouser's - whatever the colour of the shoes!bigstar[1].gif

That's a shame, the solaro can't really be seen on the pictures...

Solaro seems more of a suiting.

Structure of fabric / denim / shantung / wool / linen

I wanted to suggest something like this... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Yes, as I said, that definitely works, and has a festive feeling to it.

Oh yeah, that is so annoying. I haven't been doing it for decades, but it is especially annoying when something works which you were sure wouldn't.

What exactly do you mean by "match" – "go well with it" or "be the same"? I guess the latter.

I wouldn´t have been able to do that in depth analysis and as you say, it's great when you can see why something works and why. Being a SC and odd trouser guy I sometimes end up here and sometimes when the instincts are off I get it wrong.
