    Great pic! I love how the decor fits the fit, so to speak...

    Yes, but when it fits it looks awsome. Good luck!

    What issues (besides the collars...though this one is different from my normal one) do you normally have with my shirts?

    Sorry if you've mentioned this previously and I didn't catch it.

    You mentioned the collars but admittedly that's more personal preference. I tend to think they are generally too formal for what you wear, although that is not always the case. It occurs to me that you might be wearing a linen shirt in your last fit. If so, I retract my statement on that one in particular. The general sentiment stands. I usually give you a thumb, however, because your ability to pair colors and patterns is top notch.

    Oxford cloth, as are 75% of my shirts. Love it, regardless of how odd it is to have it in spread collars.

    Hmmm, I don't know how I should feel about your choices then. I may have mentioned previously that I too have a couple spread collar oxfords which I love. They aren't a staple for me, but they have their place. I don't like to mix metaphors too regularly so they only show up once in a while. I guess that I would then say that they appear too formal in most cases, at least at first glance. Not a fan of the checks you sometimes wear either, but I'm really nit picking at this point.

    I had a look at the sneakers on your website, and they look a bit basic (colour's good), but the rest and overall look of this fit is baller. The dark brown and crispness of the white looks great against the new-looking indigo, and the jacket fits perfectly.

    Been a while. If anybody asks, Shanghai was more or less like that when I got there.

    Feedback welcome. I never thought I'd make this tie work as well as it does here.

    X-post from the Friday challenge. Don't think this jives with general SF taste really.

    Will do, sir! (I don't care if it wasn't intended at me). [​IMG]
    It's a guarantee that I'll be stopping by since my wife won't shut up about going back to Europe.
