    You're right, the solaro one and tobacco linen one are pretty casual. They look great!

    Rudals, I'd say the navy plaid is definitely CBD, and the grey is on the edge. You can't go wrong with any one of them though, they all look great. Btw, they still have a 40R in the grey PoW. I'd prefer that one over the DB.

    But what do you loaf in then?

    I dislike the traditional ones...

    More rounded toes...I just realized that Europrep probably has that carmina I have in the last post.

    I think suede plain toe blucher, suede or pebbled chukkas, or loafers would be great. I still have a soft spot for the right kind of single monk.

    Hmmm...I guess I will be stuck in CBD. But I definitely will try to buy windowpane/plaids and PoWs instead of going all solid.
    I will try to get colors that are not very traditional. But I am dead set on the Navy plaid formosa to start with. DB or not. Either one.

    Both flannels and the tropical PoW are casual as well. You're right about that Solaro, it's awesome. I don't think I could pull it off. Takes a special amount a "sprezz" for that one.

    Speaking of loafers, I'm thinking of either buying the meermin string loafers or some belgian shoes for summer. Seen as the Meermins are considerably cheaper, I'll probably go for those.

    So my wife looks over my shoulder, seeing the header she asks:
    "What is 'Noodles'?"
    "A guy."
    Reads on for a bit about 38 vs 40, shoulder sizes and so forth.
    "OMG that's so anal and boring."
    Me: ROTFLMAO
    Sorry, had to share this. Was too good not to.:D

    I wish I could get stuff sent to the office. I have to track my packages like a ninja and be ready to roll as soon as they are delivered.

    What's funny is that I say ok to pretty much everything she wants to buy. But when I want to buy something, for example, a tie, I have to have something like a senate hearing and have to go thru a rigorous review and must submit like a 100 page document proposal.
