    Nice. Yeah, sucks for me. I really want a dark brown suede cap toe. Leaning towards the Meermin hand welted. Super reasonable price and Carminas are a better fit on my foot.

    Instead of dilly-dallying on this Forum, I really need to get back outside and do more shoveling. The snowfall just won't quit. There's always time, however, for a cuppa.

    Cleav, good to hear. Maybe sometime in a few months. I needs to put the brakes in for now.

    The trousers are outstanding! I really like the pocket and side adjuster. But, of equal interest, is that futuristic elevator you are riding. :D

    Today for church. I apologize for the weird glare on all the photos, gonna have to check the camera out . . .

    Shirt is light pink

    I started with the shirt. It was a little warmer today, so light oink felt okay, and I really like the collar of this shirt. I decided on the pants next. I like the fit on these, and the warmer weather felt like it made cotton pants a viable option.Next I chose the jacket. I wanted something that contrasted well with the pants, but didn't feel too formal for cotton pants. I actually struggled a bit with this choice and settled on this navy SC. Next I selected my tie. I also struggled here as I felt that the jacket wanted a nicer tie while the pants wanted a knit or something similarly less formal. I settled on this printed silk one because it hit the palette well, it may be seriously too formal for the rest of the fit, not sure. I finally chose some shoes that I felt matched the more casual nature of the pants.

    Overall, I am concerned about the formality levels of the various pieces not lining up and telling different stories.

    Feedback and criticisms welcomed.

    clapey, I think those new trousers need more ease in the hips. The pleat shouldn't open up like that, and it's been like that in every picture you've posted so far.

    Luv, the top is all business and the bottom is all casual. You either need a proper sport coat, or make that a suit. Also, the tie is all business and should only be worn with a suit, imo. Also the fold of the square should be a poof unless it is white linen.

    when the pleat lies flat the trouser is too baggy and the seat looks like crap. the opposite end of the spectrum would be both pleats and pockets gaping. I believe pleats flaring and pockets flush is the sweet spot. but I'm not sure what the experts say.

    The fabric on these is very happy and they are far from tight. Especially after a day of running around in them.

    Thanks pB, I feared that all of the pieces weren't telling the same story. Can anyone inform me or point me in the direction of what features make a navy SC not so orphan-like? I was under the impression that pretty much any navy could be considered a SC provided it wasn't super fine or slick. Could this one get away with swapping the buttons? Are patch pockets necessary, etc?

    Thanks again for the feedback!
