    Cross posting from the casual thread:

    [​IMG]

    Was not successful taking a close up photo of the collar (that's harder than it seems it ought to be), so I cropped a larger photo...

    Shirt is from Epaulet, trousers Old Town, belt is Farnese, and shoes are Buday.

    My deepest condolences to all French members. I have been to Nice less than two months ago. What a sad morning.

    I'm going to enter this challenge with yesterdays fit.

    Casual Friday - went out to the pub for lunch with Mrs K. Unusually I wore a BD from an English maker, Hawes and Curtis.

    Interesting thing about this shirt - it started life as a Canali semi-spread. There were no collar stays and no little sewn pockets to put them in. As a result, the collar kept curling up annoyingly, always on the same side.

    So I had my tailor convert it into a button-down. Must be one of the only poplin butcher-stripe BDs in existence.

    @SimplyStylin - don't be too disheartened by your lack of votes. This side of the forum does tend to favour a more "classic", less casual style - even in the Friday Challenges.

    Yours was a simple, but well-executed casual ensemble.

    I forgot to vote.
