Both of them have settled on a fairly basic style that works for them. They stick to it without deviating too much and have really nailed their respective looks. It's very different from someone like vox or PG, who both try different looks and experiment with new things quite often. They are some of the very few who can successfully do that. I think people too often try to emulate their versatility when they'd be better served finding their comfort zone, like NOBD and Parker have.

Hehe, not really, but I do like suede... The suit is lighter than navy and I thought these shoes were a bit more summery/festive (wedding) than dark brown suede.

a) What, exactly, are you wearing? The pants appear to be silk but I'm sure that is far too effete for a stalwart Brahmin like yourself. b) What did you do to your thumb?

Very interesting. My linen pants never fall like that, which is why I kind of hate them. They also end up incredibly wrinkled after three minutes of wear. Does the humidity in Boston keep steaming out the wrinkles or did you put them on behind that bush in the background so they would look nice for the picture? Or is it that I am using lousy fabric? Is this W.Bill linen particularly noted for its wrinkle resistance?
I injured my thumb while flipping a coin to help me decide whether to post in this thread or not.
I thought maybe you had cut yourself dressing. Those are some serious creases.

Vox and PandArts with some great Summer conservative business dress looks. Keep it up!

PS - Bill, how cool/warm do you find the W. Bill 12oz linen? I'm assuming it's just about completely unlined and unstructured. It was highly recommended to me recently for Summer suits although I have my doubts that anything works in the thick of the humid heat we get around here and in Asia.
