    Hey, he started it! [​IMG]

    Thanks, man. I really liked them when he first launched them but held off. I couldn't say no at the price he sold them at during his recent sample sale.

    I think the peak and patch looks bad for me.

    Also I think hermes H belts are instantly ugh to me Pravda. Top block looks good to me though.

    Thanks @Isolation. The jacket is Paul Smith silk and very comfortable.

    @Gerry your fit is one of my favorites on the board so far. That blue suede is a show stopper with the chocolate.

    Thank you so much! That blue suede is a nice difference to the snuff or chocolate brown suede A-1s that people seem to have. Those are really nice as well but I like how this stands out.

    Btw @Gerry, please if you will share the details on that shirt. The collar is most unusual and flattering to the aesthetic of the fit.

    interesting. I was either unaware or forgot that that combination was thought to be incongruous. Food for thought...

    Which is like the pinnacle of dadcore. Could have gone for non faded denim. So it goes.

    Today, "working" from home, so decided to stretch legs and pick up younger son from school. Then he agreed to take picture of me on my phone :)

    Thanks, man! I really loved them ever since I first saw them. I'm looking forward to see how else I can wear them.

    @gs77 I really dislike the double collar here. Is the jacket black. Is so it really doesn't work color wise with the rest of the fit. I kind of like the bottom block, but the top is ruining the whole fit.

    Really? Not really what I think of when I think of dadcore. Is there such a thing? Anyway, I have no justification other than personal preference which has surely lead me astray in the past.

    @gs77 I agree with @An Acute Style. The cornucopia of collars look can be good in an ultra prep fit but doesn't work there. The bottom half looks good though!

    Thanks for comment. Jacket is dark brown, but even so maybe doesn't belong here (now that I look at it :) ). Actually either of blue rugby or that jacket doesn't belong in same outfit.

    Collars are consequence of: "...it is sunny, and it is April, but it says here it's 6 degrees Celsius... Shit I need to pick kid from school..."

    Not sure if this is "CM" enough for this thread, but it was in the 80s today, and my northern blood is not ready.

    As a southerner:

    hahahahahahaahahahaha.

    On a more serious note, it's not the heat that makes you miserable down here, it's the humidity. Dry heat in the 100s is far easier to withstand than sticky, humid heat in even the high 80s. Walking outside and getting wet from the humidity itself is the worst feeling.
