    Awesomeness above me!!!


    Length looks good to my eye.

    I must be just too used to seeing shorter jackets these days.

    I can dig this. SG - does RL make you wear the full (head to toe) polo rig?

    On the shirt - Is that this seasons with the pony on the chest oxford? I slept on last seasons (my sleeve length sold out real quick) and now they seem to only offer this with the pony on chest and no choice of sleeve length? I've been looking for the same shirt for a while, really kicking myself for not grabbing it over the winter when I had the chance.


    Thanks JB, they want an aesthetic, which is nice because I like to branch out a bit even though the great majority of my stuff is RL. If anything working there has really upped my game.

    This and last season the luxury oxfords had the pony on the chest. They're now only doing 1 sleeve length, which works great for me because the 14.5-33's were always about 1/2" too short, now they're borderline too long until i wash/dry them a few times.

    Nice shoulders on this jacket, PG.
    Nice outfit overall, actually, just don't let [​IMG] catch you with this pocket square...

    Mark, I like the colors of the tie but the woven pattern is a bit lively.

    Also, no solid black socks, damnit!

    Even with the matchy-matchy pocket square?

    Yeah, white would be better. Or a totally unmatched silk paisely.

    Manton, i have noticed you wear an unmatched silk paisely quite often. is that your "go-to" approach to picking out a ps to wear?

    i am not asking this question properly, i hope you understand what i mean.

    Orge, the red repp tie looks good. White shirt would've been much better though.

    Holdfast - light grey for the shoes.

    Another business trip - this time Chicago. I get more comments when I wear a knit tie than with any other aspect of my outfit.

    Looks good. Knit ties aren't commonly worn in a business environment over here, but I don't think anyone would take offence.

    Doing some CBD today. Close-spaced chalk stripes too radical?

    That suiting is very bold, but I like it.
    About as CBD as I can get:

    Looks pretty CBD to me.

    Despite both your's and Manton's best efforts I'm still not convinced about tan grain shoes for CBD. I love them for country wear and maybe it's just an English hang up.

    I am studying at home at the moment and therefore don't wear suits. This weekend I had to attend a wedding, however, and after getting dressed, I thought: this is actually pretty much what I'd wear to the office (well, apart from the socks, but I posted the shoe shot anyway...). So here goes:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][/SPOILER]

    I don't see what the problem is with those shoes? They look fairly conservative to me. Socks are a little bright for my taste, but I've seen equally bright worn in very conservative London law firms - they'd pass as CBD over here if not in the States.

    Nice 3-pc.I like the way the shirt & tie's textures work together too.

    Might put some elbow patches on this jacket, and when the weather finally turns I may take 1" off the bottom as well.
    Length is fine as it is.

    Very CBD, and nicely done, although the square looks a little close to the tie.

    I left my huge head in today for the "boxy" crew.

    Have a good one.

    Please excuse the sponge mark on the lapel (it had dried before I got to work) - don't try and grab a quick last cup of coffee before ascertaining that the cat is happy with the choice of food you've just presented her with (well not if your cat has as strong a left hook as mine...).

    No excuses for the solid herringbone weave tie:

    Pretty much. I either do that or white linen. I have a decent assortment of colored linen but I have not been wearing those much lately.

    And it looks good too. Great tie -- possibly my favorite stripe pattern.

    Mike, the inclusion of your head really helps to put the whole outfit in context. Seems funny to say, but I have a better understanding of your build now.
