    Nelton: love the colors.
    A.J.V. You really make the cardigan work! Not sure about the PS, though - it's too close in color and pattern to the tie IMHO, without actually matching.

    x-post from MC Casual:

    Wore this today to a contemporary classical music performance in a more stylish part of town, with both ancient music lovers and young zany college-student music lovers. Sorry for the pattern overload, I don't have enough items in my wardrobe. [​IMG]

    I think you'd benefit from trousers with a higher rise.

    Looking good. How do you find Messini's suits? Are they still Italian made?

    Cheers, they are pretty good well made suits. One of the rare places in Australia I have found any DB off the rack. Fit is pretty good except the jacket could be half an inch longer. Trousers are great also. I'm not sure about all of them but this one is made in China.

    The shoulders are too big. This is a very versatile jacket, and I'd love to find one. First thing that comes to mind is a light blue shirt/navy tie, with any color trousers. Other suggestions would be white shirt/rust-orange tie, pink shirt/red repp tie, etc. etc.
    Beautiful.
    Yes, checks and checks are okay. No, the way you are doing them is incorrect. Personally, I think that your checks are too close in scale. If I could change the basics of what you're wearing, I would do a solid color shirt with the SC, add a PS, and have darker jeans. I'm also not keen on the shoes, but that's a personal opinion.
    Good look. It reminds me of a Sart image I've seen (guy doing navy blazer with semi-washed denim).

    What the hell dude? White pants, white belt? Then navy, pinstripe shirt and square jacket and tie? All this is a very very bad combo. The shoes is nice (standard) other then that it was no good my friend.

    upr_crust: Beautiful SC! I don't really like the tie knot and collar, but maybe that's just me.
