    Wake up late, groggy, and half way to work before you realized you grabbed the wrong coat. Shirt is not so good either. To late to go back to change. Hide the coat at work and pretend everything is fine. (I don't wear a suit and tie to work. But, I can see a story like this unfolding.)

    Is this still open? It might be the place to experiment with my suit-jacket-and-jeans look (harking back to 1968). Trouble is I won't be able to post until Saturday - too much on.

    For the challenge I decided to go with an outfit I tend to go for when travelling. Low contrast and comfortable.

    Jacket - Loro Piana Traveller
    Shawl collar 6-ply cashmere cardigan from Kangra
    Shirt - Kamakura
    Tie - Boggi
    Denim - Levi's 522
    Wool socks by Berg&Berg
    Alden #8 tassels
    Gloves - unlined peccary by Hestra

    ^ ^ Nice, but apart the tie it's an 'all casual look' to me. I can't see the CM fit. Not very risky and too plain (imho).

    @Diplomatic Ties: the field jacket i wear IS an authentic US army model (classic M-65)
