    Like the SC but the pockets seem to have a mind of their own! [​IMG]
    I was hoping no one would notice. [​IMG]
    Brown in town today, and cotton seersucker at that.
    I don't like the look of this solid seersucker. I'm a seersucker traditionalist. Though I think a navy solid could look nice.

    AS, I must admit that your "Branding" tickles me (on the fence is my favourite). I will read various threads looking for your "seals". Bravo. Incidentally, nice clothes.

    Thanks all around for the feedback. I'm surprised this inspired so much interest, and especially surprised by the "never seen something like that before" comments.

    The contrast between white shirt and brown coat is a bit stronger than it comes across in this pic, where the yellow lighting casts a creamy tone on the shirt. To be perfectly honest, I don't think I'll ever wear this tie with this coat again either. There's definitely some formal/informal incongruity there, and it's also a little narrower than I like these days. Pants were flat-front and cream/off-white linen, fwiw.

    I love cotton khaki for the summer, but it's not so easy to pair up with.

    Trying this out with china blue shirt and gold tie to bring upsome colour. Thoughts?

    I rather like the smile. It adds something that even the best of fits cannot.

    PM acecow... I think his bag would suit you well.

    At first, I thought you were having a laugh, but are you seriously serious? A navy tote with orange straps is "mad feminine"? But it's okay if he's gay? Perhaps cronictroll would be a better name...

    You really need to get over the bag and move on - you should see what I see when attending the local Farmers' markets....you would think we are all gay there, esp. in these times of everyone going 'green'.....[​IMG]

    The placement of my head in today's photo was entirely accidental, and only royal or noble appellation usually linked to my name is "queen". [​IMG] , but thanks for the thoughts, at least.

    I'd pair the jacket with more casual trousers (cotton or linen) and a simple plain summer tie (or sans); suits the jacket better and give it a more relaxed look. Can't really see the shoes, but they look a bit heavy and wintery.

    You are not Mafoofan, sorry. I don't think you can refer to yourself in the third person yet with a "stamp"

    He could have written "I like everything except the boutonniere" but this is more interesting; is it not? EDIT: Haven't see Manofkent in a while. I can only assume this guy got him.

    Technically, I am referring to myself in the third animal.
