    ^New England swag done right. This is essentially how I dress every weekend, except my Barbour is Navy. Where's that sweater from?

    Great fit @europrep . Are those Carmina hatch grain high boots?

    Those suede Dovers are awesome @cezinho, making the bottom pic awesome by association, but I think the cardigan is a little too close in color scale to the pants so the whole thing ends up looking a little washed out. A chunkier knit in a darker color (forest green for example) would have brought it up a notch IMO.

    @europrep good stuff! I didn't want to like the collared shirt under that type of sweater at first glance, but it took approximately 3 seconds to come around. Very cohesive fit.

    exactly what I have said a phew minutes ago to a friend. another colour would have been much nicer. Forest green is a great suggestion.

    thanks

    @cezinho I like your Bedale... I am with jcmeyer about the color of the cardigan... the contrast is so low that it looks pretty much like the color of your trousers. It is a lovely color to use with jeans (dark or medium)
    I am in awe you can wear corduroy already... It is impossible over here yet. 28ºC today


    The weather forecast was rainy and cloudy for today so I decided to take my boots out and they absolutely FAILED because it was hot and sunny all day long. I was having drinks at a nice terrace and I even got a little sunburnt... crazy.

    So you can guess that my outfit today was not appropiate. My feet were burning at noon and the waxed cotton jacket and denim shirt was not the best option for what it turned out the day to be... but at least I got four telehpone numbers just seating in the terrace LOL

    I like the boots @Chulillo , solid choice for the outfit, even if the weather didn't cooperate.

    Chulillo, you've got the casual, sort of tropical style down.

    Only because I'm currently figuring out a lighter suede shoe as well, @Chulillo, I'm guessing they are a bit light for the top part of your fit. Since you don't have a full shot it's hard to know, but did you feel there was an imbalance in this case? Or because of the light pants did it turn out ok? More of a question than a declaration :D

    Thanks, mate! Hopefully cooler weather is coming soon... fingers crossed.
    Well... I don't think there is much imbalace. The boots are not that light. The pants seemed White but the are not... but that is what I usually like, contrasting top and bottom of my outfit.
    Anyways, I think it turned out ok, people really liked it today. In the end I just wear my jackets in the early mornings. The rest of the day is in the hanger at my office... That is why I like to show what shirts I wear, because they are what people see in the end.

    Haven't been here in a while. Just picked up a Barbour Ashby. Sized down from a large (which I bought initially) to this medium. Will mostly wear without sweaters, but took a picture with a sweater just to gauge tightness. I think it looks fine even with a sweater...

    I feel so countrified.

    Fit looks good @Newcomer. I assume no pulling in the back?

    @europrep, rotas are cotton? Love the color.

    @Newcomer, fit looks good to me. I was also between sizes, but I rarely need three layers, so medium it is!
