    A jacket like that should never have buttons like those.

    And if ever there were a wrong fit for a white, French-cuffed shirt, that's probably it.

    Like the trou - grey flannel is rarely the wrong choice.

    Very curious to know what you gents think about the shoes. Too formal for the rest?

    TTO, is that pocket square from Suit Supply? If so, I might pull the trigger on a couple. Really wanted to see them in a real life context before doing so.

    Not sure about that. In fact, I'm not sure about gnatty's jacket, or a lot of today's fits either.

    I have to agree with this, again. Red tie + green square is good in theory (complementary colors) but the shades here didn't work, though it looks a bit better IRL. In fact I'm having so much trouble with my lack of squares lately that I think I'm going to go on a square shopping spree. No new jackets, shirts, or ties for some time, just squares! [​IMG]

    IMO, the trousers are the discordant element. Technically, yes, the captoe oxford in black is too formal for the SC, but with a nice gray flannel, it would have been fine.

    Yes, but I agree the trou don't work with the rest of the fit.

    Orge's fit is as classic as you could want. The shoes are ugly (sorry) and the jacket is boxy for my taste but the look is clean and well done.

    Combine that with the fact that he's young and in the dirty souf and I'm guessing it's perfectly suited to his particular context.
