    I wore a cream, almost straw-coloured suit to a wedding and without even thinking 'paired' it with a light blue spread collar shirt and burgundy textured knit tie. To use the SF lingo, I got 'lots of compliments' (ok one definite, and a few 'well look at that' type comments...)

    Not sure about a black tie and white shirt, FXH!

    It is believed they have modified their grenadines (by tying them in full Windsors) in an attempt to hoodwink the constabulary.

    I tend to agree. I do have a very pale pink cotton shirt - which I may try tomorrow. I did this shirt with a linen grey suit and was happy with overall neutral appearance. I also tried a light grey linen suit with pale blue shirt and I think it may have popped a bit more colours than my liking.
    First pic with pale pink( looks almost white from a meter) and second one with sky blue.

    That jacket... I like. Is that some gentle roping as well (as oppose to gentle groping)?

    Thanks mate. Yes, there's some roping on the shoulder. Actually, a fair bit of roping.
    Thank you, sir.

    Having dealt with Aero before, I can assure you that you're in good hands. Their customer service is excellent and they deliver to schedule (3 months roughly).

    The jackets are pretty good too ;)

    Real McCoy is where it's at, not that I'm into leather jackets.

    Did it this morning. First a white shirt- didn't work well. Then this very pale sky blue shirt. Added a sky blue Polka dot pocket square. Polo suede db loake cannon and Filson otter green briefcase.

    Is anyone else here loving this breaking story about modern-day bushrangers, the Stoccos?

    Mind you, they sound like petulant arseholes. And nobody should ever condone theft, vandalism, and (especially) shooting at the police.

    But what a great story. How the hell have they managed to evade capture for this long?

    If they could just contrive to steal from the rich and give to the poor, they could transform themselves into modern legends. Alas, I don't think this is on their agenda.

    Film rights beckon.

    True, that.

    Our police have more technology than they've ever had before and yet they don't seem to be able to do as good a job as they did back in 1880 when they were searching for the Kelly gang.

    True I suppose, but put yourself in their shoes. They need cash, petrol, food, and other basics. They can't work for money any more - their cover is blown. They can't make ATM withdrawals. Going into any kind of shop is risky.

    I'd say it's just a matter of time before they are cornered. Then what? A shoot-out? Let's hope not.

    Now I've got "The Wild Colonial Boy" going around and around in my head, and I can't find a really good version to listen to on YouTube. Damn you, Coxie!

    I'm familiar with Dainite, but what is a double Dainite? Picture possible?

    MD, I think that the suit itself looks good, but I have two, small criticisms:

    1) I would have chosen a different pocked square, either a plain white square, or one that was more muted, with a darker pattern.

    2) I think that all suits should be worn with ties and that wearing a three-piece suit, in particular, really demands a tie, rather than an open-necked shirt. The informality of the open collar with no tie clashes with the formality of the suit and waistcoast, to my mind.
