Classic color on this Burberry and a perfect length. I know trench coats don't get a lot of love on StyFo, but I'm a lifelong fan. I seldom get the chance to wear mine. Your fits are always so aspirational.
Hating on loafers with suits is group-think around here. Maybe because 9/10 times it's not a very good look. Crat is an exception, actually pulling it off very well.
N.B. I've tried it myself, with far less success.
Thanks for the input. I think the reason it looks like it's pulling at the wait is because I have a journal tucked in the inside pocket and I forgot to take it out for the pic.
Fabric close up
A rather soporific entry today
That shirt is much, much too formal for that heavy knit cardigan. I know you don't like button down collars, but for something like this you need a rumpled OCBD. There's no alternative. Either get with the programme or don't wear fits like this.
The gauntlet has been thrown!
I don't find that shirt particularly formal.
Nah, Clags knows I mean it well.
Not happening, on either count. Though agreed, a spread like this, regardless of the casual pattern, is far too formal for the tie and sweater. And an OCBD is perfect for this fit. But I won't be getting any OCBD's any time soon. Nor will I cease wearing spreads in casual fits (I even wear them without ties! And without jackets!! With jeans or shorts!!! Untucked with sleeves rolled up!!!!)
I think it's a bad shirt choice with that knitwear, too.
Just give it a try. Once I was like you as well, refusing to even come close to a buttondown, until I bought one by accident.
Just buy one nice one. Wear it with a tie, wear it without a tie, whatever. See how that fabric gets softer every time you wash you it. Before you know it, it'll be your favourite shirt.
Who does he think he is?!?!
