You can take some cues from the well-dressed in Tuscany, which gets at least as hot as Melbourne and where well dressed in summer is both a lot easier to come by than it is here and to find photos of!

It is too small. Too short. Too tight in the chest and sleeves. I suppose it's OK if you are going for that look.

I am with Quar on this one, it looks a bit boyish.

Yep. Just picked up a pair of handgrade crocketts from American Tailors. Sensational value at under $400. They are around $600 from Pediwear. They also had Carmina's for $350. I tried on some punched captoes that were beautiful. Just a touch tight across the top of my foot in the 8.5. The last obviously runs a bit smaller as I take an 8 in the C and Js.

I'd like to think we're laid back here.

Anything from tshirts to polo shirts, thin collared shirts, shorts. Simple canvas shoes, casual sneakers, havianas thongs.. But depends on where you're going.
Summer has been dismal last several years.

For me, building a basic summer wardrobe:
- X5 crew or v neck shirts from industrie (x3 white, x2 grey)
- x2 bonds baseball tees (x1 with a white base, x1 with grey)
- various singlets (if they suit you)
- x2 industrie chinos (sand and musket)
- x1 levis 501 shorts
- x1 flat colored havaianas
- x1 pair of ray bans (your pick)

Mix in a pair of board shorts and you're right

Fingers crossed I get to American Tailors in time for the C&J's (wedding excuse HURRAH!!!!); earliest I can get there is Saturday....

In other news I got my 2nd order from Luxire. It comprised of a linen/cotton blue gingham (fit perfect AND ITS FRIGGIN AMAZING!!!!!), 100% linen white (fit perfect; though makes me look like an Italian gangster in summer with the see through effect).......ARGHHHH my last shirt was a shirt jacket and 3" of extra fabric was added to the body making it fit like a tent (though my fault as they said 2-3" should be good).

WiIll review thoroughly them once I take the shirt jacket to the tailor (might as go to AM Tailors). Hopefully they can fix this tent....
