No worries FXH I welcome all comments. WRT the fabric, I think it's the palette of the photo. This is the fabric: http://luxire.com/products/white-with-subtle-navy-blue-grid-by-monti-of-italy Here's the shirt in some better light: http://www.styleforum.net/g/i/566938/a/331152/australian-members/sort/display_order/ http://www.styleforum.net/g/i/566937/a/331152/australian-members/sort/display_order/ Think you'll agree that it's appropriate beyond Pitti! The pants are essentially a grey flannel. Agree with the fit comments, I don't think the juxtaposition of such a slim shirt with broad trousers works. It makes my legs and butt looks bigger than they actually are. The tweaks you mentioned are just what I was thinking of doing. 21" chest and 20" waist, combined with losing 1 or 2 kgs, would work wonders I think. The cuff is long because it's a three button cuff. Just wanted to try something different with that shirt. When you say "inch or higher waistline" are you referring to the shirt or pants?
