    About the only reason I rue the end of winter is that the horseblankets will need to be relegated to the spare closet until the leaves turn color again in the fall. Figured I'd eke out some more wear of some of my favorites over the next few weeks:

    Oh, you do. You simply don't know that you do. Trust me.

    Enlighten us, SG. I am not a derby fan either (except for chukka's).

    he will enlighten us, can't wait...

    the chukka is no derby in the common sense.


    But it is in a technical/constructional sense, isn't it?

    I'm not saying that everybody here has to like derby shoes. However, "knowing" Sander to a certain degree, I can envision the perfect shoe for his needs. In a derby style.

    I understand. I'm curious what you have in mind for him.

    Now I'm curious as well... you already know, that I want a 2/3-eyelet derby, don't you? But those are, almost like Chukkas (which I love), nearly not derbys anymore (in the traditional sense).

    - thanks for the vote, but I have actually worn that combo [​IMG]


    The pants and the shoes, sure (and I think that looks good); but not with those socks, no?

    Red socks with gray pants...what? Also, why no brown belt to match with brown shoes?

    Really?

    There are no belt loops, thus no belt.

    Package arrive from Hong Kong today. Spoils of my January visit with Ram Keswani of MyTailor:

    Summer jacket in light weight wool. Blue with cream windowpane. Mother of pearl buttons. Was supposed to come half-lined, but came fully lined. The cream buttonhole on the lapel wasn't something I specified, but on this jacket I think I like it.
    [​IMG]

    Five pair of flat front trousers in assorted colors. Dark gray, medium gray, navy, tan and chinos. All flat front with 2" cuffs.
    [​IMG]

    Shirts are coming in the next package. Glad these arrived since I'm meeting with Ram later this week and the jacket, while it generally fits great, needs a bit more room at the waist. I'm also going to start him on some heavy linen trousers and maybe a full linen suit (DB jacket, I think).

    Because matching is for small timers.

    I have a feeling Rowrow has read some "rules" where socks match your pants (sure, but kinda boring. Red / grey is a classic look) and belt matches your shoes (correct... unless you're not wearing one, i.e. where one's pants have side adjusters and no belt loops).
