This is very nice...but a less wrinkled collar would have really perfected such a dressy outfit...

Re. the recent discussion about trouser fit: of course balance between top and bottom blocks is important, but for me personally, the main concern is the fact that I have really small feet (UK size 6). So I have always worn trousers with a narrow leg opening (7"), long before it became a #menswear craze. In my experience, trouser drape is not so much determined by their fullness, but by their rise. Higher rise trousers drape better and neater. Period.

Ya, foot size and obviously shoe type factors into one's decision on how to determine trouser leg opening.

A gent who has a size 10UK foot and prefers CJ's 348 last obviously would want a wider leg opening to avoid looking as if he's on skis. But for most guys I think 8 1/2" to 9" is a good range.

My preference would be a slightly slimmer trousers but it's good to have variety sometimes.

it certainly looks good on you, and thanks for chiming in. i mean, we have been talking about you all day, you deserve a say. smile.gif

I also just find trousers with a higher rise to be more comfortable...though a secondary reason is a low rise doesn't provide any gut camouflage...

This. (Except for the back pockets thing. If I need to carry more than what fits in the 5-6 pockets of my jacket, then I need to carry less stuff.)

Minimal color palette today. Took a whole lot of restraint not to pick a color or pattern, I even almost wore black oxfords but I had to make the look mine so i ditched the oxfords for suede dob monks biggrin.gif
