    Regardless of what your monitor may be telling you, the SC is dark blue herringbone and the shirt is mint green. The khakis are -- you guessed it -- khaki.

    The loafers are fantastic. Make?

    Thank you.

    Gaziano and Girling 'Nice' model - I believe it is no longer part of their RTW line, but can most likely be ordered MTO.

    No. There's too much going on between the pocket square and the tie. While I understand the concept you're going for, the execution simply doesn't work. A plain navy tie would've worked, as would have a white pocket square. But together, it's simply too much.

    Understood. I had the same feeling and switched the pocket square fold later in the day to a flat fold, so all you could see was like the white for the most part.

    Looking good, Butler. Is it still cool in France? Not time for a dip in pool yet? [​IMG] Spring casual for me today: [​IMG]
    This is really wonderful stuff, Parker. The pattern matching above and below the front darts is amazing! And to top that, the pattern is matched to the sleeves as well. Whoever cut that coat is a true master.

    I don't think this shirt is suit-appropriate, EAP.

    Cant explain why, but IMO lime green shirts don't work (pretty much never).
    In real life, that shirt is mint green, not lime. Does that help any?

    For spring (whatever that is!) and summer, "mint green" is a terrific color.
    See there, ndw? It works for cp! [​IMG]

    This looks great.
    Gracias!

    No doubt both are partly to blame. Often, though, the colors look really good on my monitor at posting time, but then get misinterpreted by other members. Seems like that would be a monitor issue.

    Woah. There's an awful lot going on here, Navi, and it's overwhelming.

    Eh. The collar is hardly noticeable from eye-level. I think it's about on-par with a funky jacket lining as far as appropriateness is concerned.

    Unless you were just referring to the sloppy collar point, which I think can be explained by getting rained on in the morning, working all day, and getting rained on in the afternoon. [​IMG]

    Sunny color scheme, crappy weather (at least here in NYC). Let's see if the adoption of bright colors will bring brighter weather, shall we?

    FWIW, and have at it fellow posters . . .
