    Untied sneakers are ok, especially on a simple canvas sneaker like that. But no laces? Hm.

    Göring was probably at least 6 sizes bigger than you, so I think you're safe. Nice jacket. US army model?

    They're Sperry Topsiders. I've always been under the impression that they were made to be worn that way.

    No, it could very well be my bad. Perhaps, a faulty assumption left over from my pre-AAAC/Styleforum days.

    Did you go to work wearing that? That coat wouldn't even be good enough for casual Friday. Good choice for the competition.

    Nah, American Eagle unlined. I think I would have been sweating like Göring in August if I had worn a field jacket.
    Work?

    I am in for this one. It's a rainy week here so that may bring some Barbour action.

    I'm wearing a long sleeved polo and some very casual trousers here together with the more CM elements of a light sportscoat, square and suede loafers:
