    Unwillingly trying something different. Had no time to change after work, so I just threw a jacket on what I had. What do you guys think of this?

    Am I too partial to browns lately? Possibly! But this looks amazing, especially with the socks (for some reason).
    Thanks, acecow. Brown need blue, IMO. The socks and shirt help to (hopefully) keep the look fresh.

    CBDamned today. Yep, a SC with denim [​IMG] Shoe polish build-up needs to be dealt with too, but today's a casual day, so a mirror shine wouldn't be quite right anyways. [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Thanks for posting that pic. I have a BB seersucker that looks similar and have yet to be able to find a way to make it work (remember the Easter pics with the Benz and the blue suede kicks?). Now, I know and...

    I like it, but I would have worn dark brown leather or suede shoes. That might be because I've been indoctrinated with the idea that one's shoes should be darker than one's trousers.

    I like it as well, especially the trousers and shoes. The darker soles make it a nice combination, IMO. I don't like polo shirts; light blue linen regular shirt would have been nice (assuming the trousers and jacket are spring-y as well, fabric wise, of which I'm not sure; otherwise a light blue oxford for instance).

    The suit is about 10 years old; MTM Oxxford. Also, it has a vest.

    Sadly, the suit no longer fits. A regimen of exercise and running has made the suit too large. I've had it altered as far as it can go. Yesterday was the last wearing.

    +1 on that - been there, done that, happier to be thinner and more healthy. Onwards to the next suit, in a smaller size!

    Some loose ends to tie up today, plus a 20 degree temperature drop on the overnight, so took out the full cord rig for probably the last time for a bit. Thanks to Threadbearer for the tie! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Moo,

    Really nice outerwear jacket, and it seems to fit you well. LV tote is a little too logo heavy and effeminate for my comfort zone, but to each his own.
