    Thinking about picking up a couple more squares to cover the bases. I've been using two pretty much all the time. I'm okay with that though since they go with just about everything however:

    I have confused the noodles avatar to be changed immediately.

    I think my Formosa dreams may remain as such just too much to sort out from here. Getting a bespoke piece in on Thursday that may prove worthy ;s

    Not a fan of those, especially heading in to your winter over there. I'd be looking for more sombre earth tones like rusts, orange, green etc with small splashes of colours. The middle one might work ok but taking away the navy border it's still pretty bright.

    I agree regarding the squares and I think I'd prefer a lighter shade of grey for the pants, especially if the intent is wearing a jacket with them.

    If you want to stick with that square pattern I'd prefer something like this for the coming weather:

    @The Noodles kindly refer she who lives with you to the online store below, which offers much better alternatives to spandex (Speedo?) swimwear for the tailored gent. The Aussies refer to Speedo briefs as "budgie smugglers", owing to their anatomically revealing qualities. Sir, dresses to the left I see (from the Tailor of Panama). [​IMG]

    I certainly have no objection to that.

    I have almost no drop. I am built like a square. :-(
