    The traditionalists will probably say that it's all wrong (notch lapels, patch pockets etc.) but I quite like the Ungaro jacket in the OP.

    Not so sure about the first pair of shoes though...

    A lot of the stuff you posted there (except the shirts) is a little too fashion forward for my tastes. The shoes more so than anything else.

    I'm actually dressed in a spring outfit today. No pics (maybe later) but it's:

    bone/cream flat front RLPL summer wool pants (2 inch cuff)
    Pink candy stripe Oxxford shirt
    Light brown melange wool 3 to 2 1/2 button sports jacket
    Brown leather belt
    Loake Norwichs in brown
    Hot pink/green polo pocket square (from chorse123)
    Pink cotton Pantherella socks

    Bill, perhaps this is the first time we agree on something. I love the blue tone of the jacket/fabric, which is quite casual, and echoes the patch pockets very well.

    Also, the button stance/lapel roll is quite modern/hip/agressive for a DB, which balances out the other elements very well.

    I do agree the shoe choice could be better. I've love to see a medium brown monkstrap. Perhaps even a sleek brown/dark tan suede loafer.

    There was a lovely double-breasted navy blazer by Fendi one season that had square steel buttons that was similar to that Ungaro.

    oStelios, are you actually wearing these, or just putting together theoreticals? Anyway, those shoes are a great step up while still maintaining a fashion-forward edge. Much more elegant than the previous. The only change I would make is silver cufflinks. Otherwise, great!

    I like the prolific choice of Paul Smith [​IMG]

    and I also think the Ungaro blazer is quite badical...the Branchini wholecuts don't look bad, but looks a bit bulky from that pic

    Nice. I'd do it all. Especially like the shoes in dk brown.
    Maybe leave the tie off if its too hot out.
