    Great stuff

    Do you happen to know the p2p and waist width measurements on that shetland?

    Also, how do you plan on wearing that red gingham? Tough to wear because it's so loud

    I think the red gingham would look great with a navy SC and crunchy knit tie. Definitely a spring/summer look.

    I don't think it's necessarily hard to wear. Just would be difficult under an odd jacket. Use it for your causal days. @jrd617

    Is p2p pit to pit? I'll try to get you measurements this afternoon. It has a nice fit, it slims out at the waist somewhat, so the measurement might be a bit misleading. But I like the fit - the only thing I've noticed is some extra chunkiness under the arms, but nothing too weird. But it seems like it could be an issue if you wanted to wear it under a tweed sc.

    Yeah, the red shirt. I mentioned on my blog that I was looking to replace my red h&k check because the collar is starting to fray. That check is smaller and I used to wear it with a navy sc and charcoal suits to what I thought was a nice effect. I think this one would look good with the navy sc, but probably too loud for the suits. A knit tie is a good idea - I was thinking tieless but I think I have a few grenadines that might work.

    Me too.

    We probably were there at the same time on opening day. Nice pick-ups.

    I think tieless would be great with that shirt.

    That sounds about right. I dropped some old college buddies off for the ties - I think they picked up about 10-15 between them. So I was talking to Sweetu which is always good because he can tell you what caught his eye during the unpacking.

    I guess we were the bland business-types you might have seen (the lawyer, the hedge-fund guy, and the venture capitalist). I think I had on a grey flannel suit and camel-colored overcoat.

    Last side track, I remember the overcoat. I had the day off, so I was in an apple Green Canada Goose

    coloRLOw, I am digging the sc. What do you plan pairing it with?
