Let's talk about clothing for a change... Thanks for posting this Gerry, this thread is a little light on pics but you always manage to post something noteworthy. I think this has all the elements of a very good combination colour wise, but I wanted to make a couple of comments.
Firstly, I'm not sure about that jacket with those pants. To me, the jacket looks a little too smooth and slick for the apparent rough texture of the trousers, tie and shoes (though this could be an illusion of the camera?). To me, the jacket says formal/city, but the rest of the outfit says country/casual, though I admit I am making a judgement without seeing the whole outfit in one frame (perhaps it "pulls together" quite well in the whole).
Also, while those Rubinacci pocket squares are undoubtedly things of beauty, they are notoriously hard to coordinate. To me, the one you are wearing has a summery vibe with that splash of green/teal and the light ground. I get you are trying to link the brown in it to your tie/shoes but to me, the overwhelmingly light background makes it jar a little with the A/W feel of the rest of your look, and it would perhaps look more at home in the breast pocket of a lighter coloured cotton jacket and a pair of green chinos, for example.
Interested to hear your and others' thoughts on my comments.
Insightful post PoP. Reminds me a few articles that might be of interest.

I applaud GN for being brave (or stupid?) enough to post picture here and know from first hand experience how well put together he is and his skill in pulling together outfits.
