    No, they are just regular flap pockets, no patch. Where are you seeing the patch pockets? [​IMG]

    AS, I agree with the others, leave the SC as is, it looks great.
    Also, while SC, pants and tie are well chosen and while I can realise that bit loafers might just simply not to my taste but fine for this picture, the shirt definitely is not.
    Please kill it with fire, it ruins the whole look.

    I actually thought the shirt made it great, very distinctive and unique. I'm a big fan of navy blazer / tan trousers, but I think we all need to make it our own in some way -- and though I might not wear that shirt, it works well for AAS.

    Each to his own.
    If AAS feels fine, that is all that counts.

    Personally, I think certain combinations are classics for good reasons.
    The shirt, just like those preppy/madras pants that were posted some days ago, just try too much and are too much into peoples' faces.
    Style to me is about simplicity and understatement.

    Have a look at the followin pictures, those are casual outfits done right in my opinion.

    That tie is absolutely fabulous Pliny! Like everything minus the socks, which are bright enough, relative to the rest of the ensemble, to almost blow out my monitor :eek:

    This.

    I pinned the middle image (I use Pinterest and not Tumblr despite being a male. It's for my own reference and it seems like an easier way to store images. The only thing I pin are you guys [​IMG])

    (and myself. I'd forget fits I'd like if I didn't)

    Channeling RDiaz with my new jacket.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    SC: Canali
    Shirt, tie: Oxford
    PS: Duchamp
    Pants: Pal Zileri

    The jacket required no alterations whatsoever. Wool/linen/silk blend with a very subtle herringbone weave which doesn't show up in the photos. MOP buttons.

    I think FM has hit on the magic of this - the way the obvious anti-style of a boldly logo'd accessory draws the eye away from the vile tie, the similar PS, the matching colours of the two aforementioned items, the frightful shirt, the skinny lapels, the watch bling, the pinky ring and the wrist junk, striking an almost perfect balance of obnoxiousness. Every individual item is a slap in the face, although I grant that Mikael clearly has a strong and confident personal style. I can't knock that. Although I could suggest a hair cut, but that's just me being old-fashioned.

    The briefcase itself is doubtless very nice. But I do have this thing about visible logos, famous or not. As for proud traditions, LV is to design what Starbucks is to coffee. Really nothing inherently wrong with it, a lot of money invested to make it consistent, and some people just really like the flavour. But let's not pretend it's special. And I wouldn't put a Starbucks logo on my own coffee mugs. That's all.



    From the knees up, the whole thing is great. :)

    I love the tie too, but I'd wear it with a navy or grey suit and a blue shirt. Because it's so muted, I think it needs a contrast and a little dash of colour somewhere - maybe around the PS area too, but definitely above the waist! As for the rest, well, talking of obnoxiousness as above, I'm in a similar mood today: did somebody say bright socks? I didn't notice any bright socks.

    P.S. Great jacket...er.."Cox"! (From cock to sack, that's really a step up is it?)

    Don,

    Love the texture of that tie next to the vest. Again, not a fan of the shirt (just my OPINON, guys), but it's a cheerful fall outfit that looks awesome for the most part. By the by, it's still regularly in the 80s where I am. Come on tweed weather! Get here already!

    It's called "going viral".

    Love the fit DonC, and I can't see anything wrong with the shirt. But - minor nitpick - I think the tie, nice though it is, is too close in colour to to your pents.

    There is no reason why it shouldn't, as long as the the shirt is a truly pale blue.
