    Hi all: I just picked up a fabulous pair of flat front Incotex sartoriale trousers. They are caramel or cafe con leche colored. Figure I will wear them with Alden cordovan split-toed oxfords. Was wondering if anyone had ideas on shirts to pair with the trousers. About all I can come up with is a solid royal blue shirt, which looks sharp, but after that I'm kind of stymied. Ideas?

    I'd also suggest a striped/checked/windowpane shirt that has the caramel color in it; I think it would tie the ensamble together and look pretty sharp.

    Good idea VM. I was also thinking of some sort of yellow, but then Matador Poeta would have scolded me [​IMG]

    haha nice, very clever. Make sure to get cherry buttons on that shirt.

    Jeez, I'm already half nuts, [​IMG] so I'd have the Sundae thing pretty much covered.
