Thank you all for the kudos/comments and critiques.
I couldn't imagine a Fred Astaire comparison as a bad thing! So thanks... but the fact I included my hair really isn't really relevant (pun intended? it doesn't "gel"?). It's a personal preference just as wearing arm candy, a certain watch or unbuttoning a cuff. I'm not going to slick it back with pomade to make it more apropos and the contrast between the styles is why I like it for a Saturday night out. Different folks ya know...
They fit how they'd fit Fred so I'm cool with that.. thanks.
Glad you pointed out the trousers pB... I knew someone would get it. And yeah the coat is a touch large but it's new and I'm considering what to do about that. I got such a deal on it and it's such a nice coat I was torn... but not sure if it's worth opening up that can of worms. I'm working with a new tailor in my area and I'm considering having him take a look at it. Cheers fellas!
This shirt shouldn't work with the SC, but I kinda like it...not sure why. May be the percs talking.
The last couple more casual fits you've posted look awesome, you may be on my "people to rob" list soon. Keep up the good work!
Gotta agree with 'bo here. Cord suits and SC's just look weird to me. They're like the varsity jacket of the (unintentional) chastity club... Sorry.

Does anyone recall the screen name of the poster who was a sax(?) player in an ensemble and used to post in this thread occasionally a few months back? I need to refer to some of his pics and can't seem to locate them. I'm trying to save a friend who is a part time musician from wearing black shirts to his gigs.
Thanks in advance.

Joe begs to differ.
I take your point, though. Joe's an exception.
YES! Thanks. Point regarding black shirts on musicians is being made as I type this.

It might just be me, but I feel like this would benefit a bit from a thicker knot. Cool look overall though!
