    Sorry for the creasing of the fabric in the thighs...need to let them out a bit. Sadly, this shirt (royal blue bengal stripe) needs to be retired to casual wear as the sleeves shrunk for some reason despite careful washing. I love the color though. Have a good start to the week folks.
    @Mossrocks, you asked last time I posted this suit, yes, it is Jcrew. I got it last summer during clearance and never got a chance to wear it until now. My tastes have changed a bit since then but it is still a good cotton suit (which I wouldn't want to break the bank on anyway :) ) for cheap I think.

    Far from perfect, but thank you. Tie is a silk knit from Saks purchased off b&s here. Suit is Jcrew chino in wheat.

    Like everything but the pants - not a fan of a non slim pant rolled.

    I agree, I think it looks pretty good. Was just doing the obligatory and ceremonial picking of nits. On the button stance, I like where it is, but the jacket needs to be a bit longer to make it work. I don't see why longer sleeves "balance" a shorter jacket. If anything, if the jacket is short, the sleeves should be too.

    Hot, humid, and wet Monday. Dropping off the trousers for shortening tomorrow. The sleeves in this shirt must have shrunk. Apparently I had something in my left jacket pocket, too.

    I thumbs-uped this then realized the tail of the tie is extending way past the front of the tie.

    Ugh. What a detestable trend. It brings down the whole outfit because it looks like you don't know how to knot a tie to the correct length. It's trying way too hard and it strikes me as childish.
