    Such a good movie.

    i want to hate the hat, but actually like it. Not sure about it AND the strongly-checked jacket, though either individually in the look would be fine.

    I like this suit (would like it even more with normal pockets) but think black shoes/bag would complement it better. Also, I have an irrational dislike of that kind of glossy/high-shine striped tie. Even though I think I own a couple myself... [​IMG]

    I think the Windsor looks fine with that collar. Honestly I don't get why so much hate for this knot on the forum. Have you tried a double FIH anyways?

    Well, yeah, but I could also walk around with my fly unzipped and call it sprezzatura.

    I'm not saying it looks good, just giving the reason why a fashion conscious individual would wear a button down unbuttoned. It's not just because they don't like button downs, it's evidently because they think it's trendy and cool.
    Personally, if I wear a button down collar, I'll wear it buttoned. If I don't like button downs then I wouldn't wear one. If I wear one and have it unbuttoned then I'm either lazy, fashion ignorant or think it's trendy/cool. For most on here I think we can rule out the first two.

    Spoo, I love this. Sportcoat is lovely, and it goes very well with the tie and shirt. Very nice.

    Thanks! :) Personally, I would dislike this hat with a more modern-leaning suit. I think it suits either more traditional, country or oddball wear (IE: mixed together). I wasn't quite sure about the hat at first; the hight, width or something else seemed off, but, as it was £50, I caved! :) :p

    Citan1145, the trousers are the 'tailored' chinos from Charles Tyrwhitt (I love their customer service, and they're relatively cheap!), and are still being sold there, I believe. The SC is CT, too, but not being sold, AFAIK. The only problem, I find, with CT SCs is, that they tend, to be a bit boxy in the waist area; I could always get it taken in an inch. :puzzled:

    Self-masturbatory thanks, to every who gave kudos! :)

    a nice look, but please be honest, is there a string or thread between your thumb and index finger of your right hand that is holding open the jacket bottom to give it that blowing in the wind look?

    No, unfortunately - it's just the wind ...
