    If anything is clear in the last few pages, it's that you don't seem to have a shortage of time.

    He just passed comps. It takes time to adjust.

    ---

    In general, when someone says navy trousers are not versatile (and they are less versatile than gray and most browns) or a gray odd jacket is tough to wear (they are compared to most other colors), people do tend to respond to these statements as if they were a more definitive "navy pants don't work" and "gray jackets don't work." I rarely see these statements uttered though, and I think this what CM was responding to.

    I don't know if that is the case here. It appears someone did make such a statement (?), but if so, that's the exception and not the rule.

    But otherwise, what Murl/Jackie Chan said

    That's Claghorn. You'd have to ask him. (I agree that it's a great shirt; I'm not sure it's tattersall, however.)

    I'm using the photo as he, at least at one point, intended. You'd need to know the GNA thread, I guess.

    Cheers,

    I don't know how to bold your text via cell, but your assessment regarding Republicans might serve as adequate rationale for appreciation of navy trews.

    Indulge a Noob. What does "northern lights" mean? SF needs a glossary.

    The jacket (north) is a lighter color than the trousers.

    Stuff gets blown out of proportion. Navy trousers aren't "advanced," but they also aren't the sure bet with almost any SC that mid-gray trousers are.

    The question to ask is: Do SC, shirt, tie combos exist where navy trousers are the best pairing?

    I would venture I'm not alone in saying I consider formality of dress to be a component of etiquette. Operas, weddings, funerals etc are special occasions and call for a bit more than jeans and a t-shirt. They call for your Sunday best.

    I've never had a personal mentor. Why can't one learn the basics on his own and then iterate combinations until a confident personal style is achieved?

    Unless an occasion is super formal, I don't aim for 100% perfection in my combinations. Even if I do, I will be constantly thinking about how I'd tweak the combo, look at people I pass by, design magazines (not just fashion), and even IG and this thread for inspiration on mixing and matching.

    My own belief is that personal style, when one is passionate and dedicated, will be an iterative process. Every outfit is a snapshot of your personal style in that moment, in whatever mood you were in. Plus, I enjoy experimenting with colors and patterns. Like problem solving, but way more expensive :)
