    Anyone know an online MTM shirt maker with a decent range of cotton/linen fabrics? (Here in Australia, it's gettin' hot!)

    I prefer brown to tan, myself. The richer color seems a better match for heavier, cold weather pants like cords. Tan strikes me as more appropriate to lighter weight pants, for warmer weather, like chinos.

    But if you simply prefer tan, get tan. Nothing inherently awful about tan cords.

    And navy blue is a common color for cords (or most other types of pants) as well.

    If you want to mix it up a bit, a third pair in dark red or forest green can prove surprisingly versatile.

    agreed...the jacket looks fine...but pix w/ you wearing it would be even better.

    Are my new pants too short? When standing straight you can see some sock where the top of the shoe swoops lower near the ankle. I was thinking of asking for an additional 3/4" in length.

    It does look to be on the short side; I would wear them longer myself. But they are narrower as well; so it may break too much in the front if they are made any longer. I'd be curious on others' comments on this.

    I'm looking for button down shirts that have a not-too-gaudy paisley pattern and fit well. Anyone have any suggestions that won't break the bank?

    No; only cheap, fused coats have the lapels pressed completely flat. Yours looks perfectly fine to me.

    Is adding a thin rubber layer on a good year leather sole a sin?
    I never did in the past, but the weather being quite bad where i live and the pavement quite abrasive as well, i inclined to think it finally makes a lot of sense...

    Either suck it up, be a man, and don't wear socks, or tuck your dick and wear no-show socks.

    If you like the 'no socks' look you can wear low socks, but make sure they're 'no show' socks that cannot be seen at all so it looks you are not wearing them. Short socks which are still partially visible will just look terrible.

    If the leg opening was a touch wider they would be perfect. How you are wearing them so narrow I would actually get them 1/4" or so shorter.
