    I agree, I don't think there is anything "one-of-a-kind" about me wearing this square, and I didn't mean to imply that. I suppose when I say "individualistic", I mean adding something a little out of the ordinary without breaking guidelines/rules.

    Thank you both. I suppose what I find difficult to achieve is trying to mesh CM with some sense of casual-ness. I often admire people on here and IG who are able to achieve it very effectively.

    I suppose the implication in all this is that wearing something out of the ordinary isn't necessarily individualistic. This reveals the truly difficult part about being an "individual." If it's really possible. Quite often, individualism looks discordant to the person who worries about rules. G. Bruce Boyer is a good example.

    I'm new at the complete process so I'm just trying to make it all in. Mostly casual at the office here too so trying to work it in that style. Cowboy boots in the past but working on it. :)

    Wonderful look. Restrained, elegant use of colour and it fits you very well indeed. Wear the cockatoo with pride I say.

    I liked the cockatoo. A linen TV fold would have been boring and too conformist, almost costume like. If we were at a party, I'd come over and ask you about it. Love the controversy, reminds me of that Churchill quote about enemies.

    @wigglr I'm really digging your recent Formosa stuff. I can't judge from your photos, perhaps due to the slightly from-above angle, the precise length of your jackets. I bring this up not as a rhetorical critique (everything looks great), but because I recently acquired a Formosa SC and it's a bit longer than the other stuff I normally wear.

    My question is: do those recent fits of yours run a bit longer than some of your other jackets? Where do your jackets, when buttoned, correspond to your thumbs (I know body types/proportions matter greatly in this context, but I'm just trying to get some basic point of reference...)

    Mine looks balanced on its own, so I don't want to shorten it If I don't have to, but it's on the long side of the spectrum and I'm trying to figure if it's by aesthetic design and I just need to get used to it, or if I'm just too short for the jacket as is.

    Thanks!

    Observing a cockatoo (my cockatoo) in someone's pocket is saying precisely nothing about the relative merit of the incorporation of toy cockatoos into fine menswear, which, admittedly, deserves extensive exploration.
