    Okay - taking a big risk today! It's a nice warm day in summer here so I thought I'd wear a white jacket. I took a leaf out of An Acute Style's book to try to mix patterns. Tomorrow (Monday) I'll resume with the one pattern style you are all teaching me.

    Shirt: Tom Ford
    Tie: Drakes
    Jacket: Ralph Lauren

    I don't think I've ever seen a PoW shirt I liked...especially with a jacket and tie.

    Also, the tie is way too dark and non-summery for what you are trying to achieve. Just one guys opinion, of course....

    I was trying to keep the colors fairly similar - what would you consider a summery tie?

    I know Luca's style doesn't get much love around here...for good reasons, but this says summer

    Don't worry, I wasn't recommending it. Just look at the tie and how it plays with the summer jacket and trousers...that's all I was trying to point out.

    Helden, I actually like 2 the most.

    Awesome choice, Murl!

    Add me to the list of people that despite liking them still rarely reach for a burgundy.

    This is going to effect a lot of wallets.

    I'll do a better job when I get a new mouse. I'm on my macbook air at the moment.
