    Chalk another one up for LA.

    The game itself was terrible last night, but these were our gifted seats.

    No zoom.

    Mixing patterns is a delicate business. I certainly understand the allure, but I've come to realize it's really easy to overdo.
    That shirt seems a bit casual -- the check is neither large nor small, which means it's intended to be the focal point. It needs to be smaller to work with the boldness of that jacket. The stripes on the tie are similarly fighting the scale of the others.
    If this is the direction you want to go, I'd go tighter check on the shirt and a plain burgundy tie -- maybe a knit wool or cashmere; grenadine in a pinch.

    So i just got a pair of LVC 1966 501's and they fit well everywhere but the waist. Anyone have any experience with how much the waist will stretch on 501s??

    Thrift fit. 100% thrifted, traded here for thrifted goods, or bought at substantial discount in a discount store. Note the large/small patterns with a solid tie for focal. And the gray flannel trou. Posting here as a HUGE SHOUT OUT to MZHams for an AWESOME deal on this Khulman. [​IMG]

    GMMcL, that is a great look. Especially the jacket.
    Jacket looks more country, and shirt may be a bit too city for it. I dunno...
    The maroon tie plays off well for a color, but maybe a tie with a bit more substance or width to keep up with them lapels!

    Snagged a literally brand new (as in store tags and extra buttons on the plastic tag, rear vent basted shut) J Crew searsuckery cotton blazer that fits great and a vintage Brooks Brothers grenadine in a goldish color.

    But more importantly, thrifted myself a pass on the CT bar exam, woot! And got a job offer on Friday, woot woot!
