    Whimsical thoughts that flitted across my mind, over a lunchtime espresso.... does a light grey houndstooth suit every qualify as CBD, if all the other details are conservative enough? Now that Bin Laden is dead, this is surely the most pressing question facing the free world... [​IMG]

    I don't know, but you look pretty sharp HF. Nothing like a solid navy tie to pull things together.

    Neat suit, Banis. Maybe because it's flannel, I don't mind the camicia shoulder. It's kinda "relaxed business" if that makes sense.

    The way I see it, CBD always has to be analyzed in the context of what/where your business is. If your business is conducted in a bank or a court house, this is probably not CBD. If you business is conducted in a lecture hall, where usually sweatshirts are considered 'appropriate', I don't see why not. Whether seeing your outfit here pleases Manton, remains to be seen, but I have a hunch [​IMG]

    Fair enough. But now you've given me a dilemma: I was pretty set on two horizontal ones, but your solution doesn't look half bad. Hmm.. oh well, no rush to order it.

    Would this be peaked or shawl? DB (usually) gets two as a nod to its riding origins, but you wouldn't want two holes on a shawl.

    Nice look overall, but gorges that high are going to date very quickly.

    Another BB sack. Now with more color. Suit is olive, despite how the pics look. Shirt sleeves a bit long - need to move the button.

    banis, that's a killer suit.

    Thanks! I don't know about fabric of the shirt. It was MTM from Finamore and I have forgotten asking about fabric. If I remember, I will ask next time. As for the gorge, it is what was decided by Mina because I did not want to micromanage my first order and wanted to see how everything would turn out.

    Why so?

    Today: 90 degrees in San Diego. First chance I've had to wear this suit which arrived at the beginning of an unusually cold fall.

    I'll try to choose safer places in the future.
