    Woke up to a rainy morning so I went for the complete autumn look today. Then the sun came out and it looks like it will be a brilliant day :brick:

    SC is from Bookster in Gladstone tweed. The tie is a navy 100% cashmere tie from Morgi Milano.

    Mr Crust: quite splendid, although I'm not a fan of collar pins. I also admired your windowpane a few days ago - so much that I've ordered some for my next visit to the tailor.

    The first definite chill in the air...

    I could also use some feedback on the fit of this new navy v-neck. I like how it fits through the body & sleeves, but the shoulder seams are a little narrow compared to where my own shoulders are. Enough that it looks weird at first glance, or OK unless you look closely?

    I think I've posted almost exactly the same thing before, and it's really more on the casual side (the crap camera made the colours so dark in the robo-pose picture that it wasn't worth posting today)

    Chris, a lot better than yesterday!
    I'd personal open the second button of my shirt.
    V-neck looks fine to me.

    Navy pants and a light jacket. Tsk, tsk.

    The mix of this jacket with summery accessories probably isn't going to get much love, so have at it. Contrast between coat and trousers is more pronounced IRL.

    Thanks. The shirt is from a spanish department store brand called "Emidio Tucci". Nothing special, but sometimes they carry decent products for a good price.

    The photos have some crappy artificial depth of field applied with Photoshop, but it's much needed because the background is really busy... glad you like them though [​IMG]

    I like that plenty, Diaz. And the little bit of blue in the jacket pattern ties nicely with the shirt.

    Collar is too skimpy. Tie is too close to the SC in pattern. As you said, the jacket is too tight in the chest. The buttoning point is also too high, which accentuates the tight chest fit. SC also appears too short, but can't really tell from the pose. The pants are navy which, as stated, are notoriously hard to pull off as separates. Additionally they could use some cleaning up; the bunching destroys any clean lines you could hope for and causes a ripple effect to the waist.
