    Great fit. I think it would have been elevated with brown suede boots though. For some reason olive green and white sneakers doesn't compute for me.

    @ErikJN I'd personally prefer a slightly higher rise on the jeans or maybe just a let out the cuff by one fold but I really like the look. I'm blanking on ASM, is that an abbreviation or the name of a brand?

    Thanks @losrockets - I usually wear pants with a higher rise, however on the jeans front I have trouble finding higher rises. Suggestions are welcome!

    ASM is an abbreviation for the Aran Sweater Market

    I find my 3sixteen to actually have a pretty nice rise compared to a few of the other brands I've tried but maybe I've just sized them better? (For reference: Tellason, N&F, APC, Railcar...not sure what else I've tried. I have no experience w/ the high-end Japanese labels, nor Gustin).

    Thanks for explaining, I'll look into Aran Sweater Market. A year behind the SF turtleneck craze but still interested in giving it a shot. Combing through the last few pages, @Chulillo that gray turtleneck looks awesome on you, hope you come around/find one that suits you.

    Received a (trial) shirt jacket from tailor from Hong Kong. Blue is too blue, but I like it. Think I'll get something in linen next time, add side pockets, and make the collars more like a jacket (with lapels)

    I know black trousers aren't popular but, well here it is. I kinda like it. Shoes are brown suede chukkas.

    Too blue is just blue enough in this case. I like it a lot.

    Black trousers against the "rules" I suppose, but they look fine; the silhouette is good. Love the blazer and scarf.

    Also, there is a rule about horseplay near one's shirt pile. A gentleman indulges in horseplay only at a minimum distance of ten paces from his shirt pile. It reduces the chance of mishaps, which could bring dishonour upon his shirtings.

    There isn't much beyond a BB OCBD, some 501s, and a pair of AE Promontory Points here, and not even that past the first 20 seconds or so.

    But some of you have expressed an interest, so you can keep watching after that if you care to.

    Good stuff @Isolation , I like both those jackets, blue as well as brown. They seem to fit very well!

    Foxy I urge you to familiarize yourself with the very brilliant Love and Money if you haven't done so already. Your song puts me in mind of a quirky frenetic version of their song 'Looking for Angeline' from the 'Dogs in the Traffic' album.
    They started out as pop/funk band and with each album got more bluesy/country. Their peak was probably the 'Strange Kind of Love' album which had the single 'Helleluliah Man' - a crime that this wasn't a hit!

    Perhaps bluer than what you wanted, but it looks good!

    @isolation is such a young labelking in style. Distinctly not #menswear and stands on its own.

    Hey, thanks! Glad you are enjoying the stuff.

    Word of mouth is quite a bit harder to get going now that I'm not out busting my ass in a club every night (though my life might be easier), so I'm always happy to hear of folks sharing my work with others.
