    That's pretty good, Sheepy. I think the suede may be just slightly too casual, but that's nitpicking.

    On Yom Kippur, one is not supposed to wear leather shoes (or, for that matter, eat) - which leads to the phenomenon of observant Jews in my neighborhood putting on their best suits to attend shul, along with their Nikes - a rather jarring sight.

    only an issue if they co-exist in one garment. wool pants, linen shirt is ok, though i do not feel comfortable doing so. wool jacket linen shirt, certainly not a torah prohibition, but some consider it an issue, as the shirt is being held down by the jacket and cant be quickly removed without hinderance.

    yes, twice a year, on the 2 major jewish fast days, yom kippur and tisha b'av (the 9th day of the hebrew month of "Av") as part of the seriousness/mourning of the day, along with fasting, one may not wear leather shoes.

    And that black beauty in the background is a 1997 Isuzu Rodeo - manual, 4wd, with only 75k miles!!
    All it needs is a starter motor and a rear passenger window motor and voila! Even the tires passed inspection :slayer:

    My new beater :inlove: oh, and only for $2k ;)

    ianGP, I like everything except the pocket square which I think, frankly, is ugly. Also, even if I did like the pocket square, I feel like it should be a little more contained in the pocket, considering how formal/business the rest of the look is.
