    Lovely, and slightly unusual colour combination. I like the bright green & fuschia with the orange; wouldn't have thought they'd work so well together. Good inspiration.

    That tie is crazy. In a good way, IMO.

    Yup, would agree with this. Thought it would be a suit when I gave it a thumbs-up; with those trousers I'm less convinced.




    Our fantastic little heatwave continues. I generally avoid having to carry bags or cases around like the plague, but had to today, so included that in the shot:

    HF, I love the top part, hat included - but not keen on the bottom. If it was a suit, or if the trousers were a darker shade of beige, this would have been killer IMO.

    Where do you get your panamas, by the way?

    -----------------------------------

    Me today: poor quality pics, messy hank and moar seersucker. And for some reason I find my RTW pants (like this) more flattering than my MTM's. Reminds me that I should stick with RTW for trousers, even if there's no fresco to be found...

    Thanks. They're not from anywhere special. This one's from a random market stall; the more battered, slightly yellower one is from Marks & Spencers.

    My last vacation outfit. The third side of the four sided tie.

    All but the pleated/cuffed jeans. Good stuff.

    Why can't jeans just be jeans?

    Edit: And the shoes but this is the last I will mention that I dislike those particular boat shoes.

    Thanks for the info. I have been enjoying wearing the cheap Panama I got some weeks ago, so I'm looking to get something better (for the next year anyways), but have no idea where to look. Brent Black's stuff looks great, but a little pricey... a nicely blocked Cuenca should suffice for me, but finding one around these parts is quite difficult.

    Thanks, good info [​IMG]

    Though it ends up recommending Brent Black. Not sure if I'm ready to pay even his lowest price for a hat... [​IMG]

    FWIW, the panama which I'm wearing today was bought in London this May for 79 GBP - brand name Christy's, bought at a shop called Thomas Farthing, in Museum St. between Great Russell St. and Oxford, (i.e. just south of the British Museum).

    This looks great, and frankly, no one can tell a suit jack is orphaned unless it is made from a ultrafine wool with some sheen, imo. What you have on is casual so it works perfectly. Im actually thinking about purchasing a suit (linen/wool blend) in the same tone, but with a navy overcheck to wear as an odd jacket.

    @CLAG - what are you doing with that cash?! You're in the NPC! [​IMG]
    Looks great. I'm not brave enough to wear linen everything. I'd sweat like crazy and it'd just stick to the fabric, making me look like a slinky. One or two linen items works.

    Nice suit (and hat)

    But in the first couple of pictures, the camera made it look like you're a predator about to go into stealth mode.

    At first, I was trying to determine what facial expression of mine was making me look predatorial, but then I realized that you were referring to the moire effect that takes place with digital photos of narrow vertical stripes - either that I am about to be transported a la "Star Trek", or that I am doing my own imitation of a work of Op Art.

    Thanks. In (funny) fact, actually everything is linen except the shirt due not having any proper linen shirt - something i have to change in the nearer future ;)

    I am a brand new member and am just now updating my style and this is the look I like the best. Are those brown suede? And does brown suede go best with jeans? I was told blue suede goes best (if the tones of blue aren't too close). Also, would you suggest wearing this brown sports coat or a blue blazer? Or is it a matter of formality?
