    Second that! I think a polo and jacket (particularly one with structured shoulders) looks terrible-- but a popover and unstructured jacket looks great-- we can't all look as good as the Eidos King, but this seems the way it ought to be done; I'd do an eidos or NMWA popover and soft jacket from suitsupply or eidos [​IMG]

    Another summer fit. Too hot outside to dress up (that's my excuse)

    I think this example with a the navy blazer & brass buttons looks OK. Granted, the guy is a Ralph Lauren model but I think it can work. Just not as easy as it looks.

    See, the reason it appeals to me is that it's lazy. There's no ease there: the precious square, tight coat, and intricate hairdo are all kind of a turn-off.

    So good to be home after a long weekend on the organ bench.
    So good to turn on the TV and see the Tigers winning, 10-1, and it is only the 6th inning.
    Perfect Sunday.

    Brooks Bros shirt, tie, trousers, and socks.

    Last day in Florence yesterday. We did some typical tourist stuff, like visiting the Boboli gardens. Beautiful place, to say the least. Don't know if this new jacket will get much love here, I think it's awesome though (but am considering re-colouring it, I like DIY experiments like that).

    Dammit @kulata that fit really makes me regret not picking up a gianluca isaia napoli sc I found two days ago. It was gray with patch pockets and a slight windowpane. I just couldn't think of what I would pair it with outside of cream trousers. But that looks good enough that I should have grabbed it just for that!

    What other color pants do you wear that jacket with?

    They're Oliver Peoples x The Soloist from a few years ago.
    Thanks! Cotton isn't the best way to showcase great tailoring but I enjoyed wearing that one in the Florence sunny weather.

    C'mon. this exampke is horrible.
    I agree that a navy blazer with brass buttons can work but not here.
    This is just some pretty boi with shades and a haircut and probably 10/10 facial aesthetics wearing a blazer.

    Any mortal wearing a popped collar white polo with a brass buttoned blazer and sunglasses would just look like a twat.

    Regarding the fit of the blazer, imo more athletic people can get away with tighter fits.

    I dont think a popped polo with a SC can look good. At best you look like a douche and at worst you look dumb. Or visa versa. : )
