Looks classy! Leaving the last button open, is it how it is supposed to be?
Thanks!

Always dangerous to talk about how things "should be", especially in a subjective area such as fashion. But I leave the last button undone on all jackets, coats, blazers etc, unless it's very, very cold outside.

Great entries, guys.

For those who put up more than one fit picture, let me know which you want as your 'official entry'. Thanks.
Take the bottom one with the full body shot.

Long-time lurker, first-time poster. This is the best I could put together here in Thailand - nearly all of my cool weather clobber is back in blighty. It's a fair representation of my look/cut-of-my-jib - when in cooler climes anyway.

Ah I see. Of course, subjective it is. But sometimes there are unwritten rules about buttoning down jackets a certain way I thought.

When I’m not working such as weekends my ‘uniform’ is linen strides, driving mocs and a linen or polo shirt.
Now that the temps have dropped slightly my cooler weather routine is polo shirt, jeans or sta pressts and adidas classics. I’m bored with blue jeans so lately lean more towards white jeans or five pocket jeans in other colours.

I often try to get some sort of matchy matchy in too, so here’s a fair representation. (White with red and blue stripes on shirt, shoes and jacket. Shades with blue lenses and red side arms).

When the wind gets up I’ll add a cotton bomber or Harrington.
