    More importantly, seems as though there was a silly string party there as well...

    ty Clarinetplayer, TB, and Sugar for the comments. The coat is about an inch too short. It is the polo congressman cut and it is a fit short and the lapels are rather thin. I think it works given that I am young but I acknowledge the shortness is not technically proper. I loved the pattern and it is an amazingly soft 100% cashmere,got it for a steal on ebay too. Either way, thanks for the comments and my recent jackets are much longer and wider lapels, i assure you :)

    What's so horrible about a whiskey/navy combo? I happen to like that, especially with the chalk stripe suit and the bowtie. Adds a sort of frivolity to the whole package. The square I could do without, but we can't have everything.

    It's just very jarring to English eyes. I've said it before and I'll say it again, OD/OT can certainly dress well but his shoe combinations let him down most of the time.

    I don't think the combination of colours itself is objectionable, but it seems to clash with his otherwise conservative/old fashioned style.

    I regret the shirt since the sleeves aren't the proper length.

    I'm the same way, but I think it probably comes down to local climate. I know there've been several times over recent weeks that I've thought a loafer would be nice to wear, but I know I'd just feel cold wearing them so changed my mind. Cold feet about getting cold feet, you might say... [​IMG]

    Crusty, if that was a white shirt instead of a pink, I think it would have been one of my favorite fits of yours, and also would have come damn close to making you eligible for the CBD thread...

    Spoo-meister, in retrospect, the pink may have been a bit strong for the rest of today's fit, but had I worn a white shirt, and truly been eligible for the CBD thread, this would be taken as a first sign of the coming Apocalypse - a greatly unnatural omen.

    Just sayin' . . .:)

    Absolutely amazing outfit ups_crust, but I have to agree with Spoo.
    The pink just really doesn't work, too matchy matchy with your skin...
