    I like that John. Maybe a bit of a louder shirt just to punch it up, but overall a very good first effort.

    RE: pics - you're basically fucked with that iPhone. Like SB said, lighting. I do appreciate you taking pictures of the whole outfit. This seems to be the only thread left where everyone constantly does that.

    Thank you. By louder do you perhaps mean more of a contrast between the white pants? Such as a solid blue or gingham shirt?

    Yep. Pattern or color. Even a brighter solid - pink, royal blue, etc., would go well there.

    Fair warning - I am a fan of these sorts of contrast whereas a majority of other posters in this thread are not.

    the shorts are great, but you can't wear those chukkas with them. makes you look like a landscaper.

    simple trade for white vans/chucks/bucks and you'll be good.

    I'm also a little suspicious of wearing a jumper with shorts..

    I'm ambivalent about the chukkas; you may be right. The top is actually a shirt. It's an unusual knit from Sid Mashburn. Thin, no stretch.

    That's a miss for you SB. Rare though it may be.

    Is it the boots? I would be the first to acknowledge that my actually casual attire could use work/variety. And, thanks for the indirect compliment!

    You say they're linen Butch, but how do we know they're not really Jorts?:D

    Its really the whole thing. It looks like a summer outfit dressed up for winter. You've got a sweater-looking shirt, casual boots, and then pair them with what look like jorts. Its like dad-casual gone awry.

    If you were going to pair the shirt and boots you'd need casual pents. If you were going to try the jorts, you'd need a much more casual looking shirt - maybe a short sleeve polo, and a pair of casual sneakers or flip flops.

    Just looked through quite a few pages of this thread and really like what I see! I am really jealous of your guys' sense of style. Since a young age, I have always liked fashion and looking nice. But when it comes to actually putting together a outfit or knowing what goes with what, I am terrible.

    I am also pretty weird in the fact that I really like both Mens Classic and SW&D. But, as a member here stated in my intro thread, I should choose one and stick to it. Otherwise it looks like I am always wearing a costume. I would like to eventually learn to be able to combine both of them. But not all the time. Mainly for casual days.

    So, I am going to continue lurking this thread daily and asking style questions when I have them, if you gentlemen don't mind. PiCcolocV has already been a huge help through some PM's back and forth.

    Peace!

    P.S. to Hendrix: I REALLY like your sense of style. But I also REALLY REALLY like your name! I am a HUGE hendrix fan. I literally have to listen to him at least once a day. Never gets old either. [​IMG]

    Cross post from SW&D. Had a some meetings today so wore a blazer and a tucked shirt.

    Calibre
    J.Crew
    Industrie
    Mr Hare

    Couple of points having come home and taken the shots just now.

    1. Should have been wearing brown shoes (not sneakers and no Vibram sole :) )
    2. As I don't have brown suede shoes, I should have worn a darker shoe at least.
    3. Shirt sleeves still need taking up.
    4. I think I should be wearing proper trousers, not slim chinos with a fit like this.

    I must confess that I don't get this critique at all. I guess as a critique of the picture it might make sense, but of the actual clothes? Not so much. The top is essentially a heavy T-shirt and the shorts are linen.
