    Thanks. I think the vest may have been too bright given how dark the jacket and pants are, but I kind of like the contrast.

    All of the ones qualified to compete.



    What if AAS were to replace all of his black watch with Burberry Nova Check? Now that would be something! :nodding:

    ^ I gave Don the extra pocket hanky as I didn't need one for this outfit.

    Clags, much more somber than usual from you, I like it.

    Kg that is awesome.

    Thanks. I'm wanting to integrate more white shirts into what I wear. I also think two good FC's could be derived from that fit:

    1) A single pattern challenge
    2) A white shirt, odd jacket challenge

    P.o.P., those pants should be gray, not brown. Had they been gray....man that would have been a great original look.

    I want a no pattern/no suit challenge.

    You sure they are brown?

    I respectfully disagree in this case Clags. I originally thought the same thing about this jacket but grey tends to wash out the look as the white checks in the jacket are dominant and resolve to grey from a distance. I also happen to think grey trews look too formal with this jacket.


    I won't forget that ;-)

    Depends on the type of wool. Color isn't the only factor which contributes to formality, though perhaps you didn't have any more casual gray trousers available to you. But I'm generally not a fan of looks that are entirely cool on top and entirely warm in the bottom.

    So the trews r Panta, or the shirt? Perhaps white slacks- the prob at the moment is that bifurcation from top to bottom. I agree that this is close to to being very good/different
