    Great jacket, but IMO wrong shirt/tie for this look. Try a light blue button down and a dark knit or geometric/fancy print tie. My opinion again of course, both the shirt and jacket sleeves are about 1-1.5" too long.

    ^FWIW the shirt is light blue but it is a micro check pattern, will try a solid next time. I would love to try a neat pattern tie but was lost on the color. My mind automatically goes to purple, green, orange, or navy. Any suggestions on complimentary colors?

    I'm not sure I'm getting along with the new forum software, following my return to these hallowed halls... How do I respond to the comments and suggestions that are hidden behind the little thumbs-up icon? How do you guys get the discussions/mud-fights rolling in WAYWRN these days? ;)

    @Holdfast - Good point about the collar. You recall correctly that I don't like button-downs much, but I'm thinking about getting some new MTM shirts with a different sort of collar for going tie-less. I was thinking either higher (so it will 'stand up for itself') or maybe a sort of 'hidden' button-down collar - I have a RTW shirt with that and it works well. Any ideas?

    ^ Nice, but what's up with those hats man? You look like a farmer or something with those on. Much better without.

    I see the aesthetic he's going for; generally, I guess he'd get more praise without it--bearing in mind MC is more trad--but I like the additional flair, and he suits it. For me, it's the trousers-which-are-always-an-inch-and-a-half-too-short look, which bothers me (but that's personal pref, too, I suppose).
