    That looks like a lovely flannel and is a great color. Looking real sharp! Apparently, a button-down collar with a suit is frowned on in these parts, but I don't care: this is a very good fit.

    Thought about a white or cream square, but ultimately decided against it.

    Also, sorry for the crappy lighting. Pents are charcoal.

    Thanks! There was some discussion a while back on the subject of BD shirts with suits. I believe it was argued by some that this is in fact a classic American dress trope, hence allowable; the wearing of OCBDs as part of casual ensembles, i.e. without tie, is a far more recent phenomenon.

    In the UK my fit would possibly be frowned upon. However, I live in Australia, where merely donning a pair of lace-up shoes identifies one as either a silvertail or a hipster. (I, of course, am both.)

    Now if I had more sprezzatura, I wouldn't have bothered doing up the buttons.

    But I like going against the trend. My aim is always to look as studied as possible, without actually expending any effort.

    I agree they're a bit of a hippo-griff or what not (2 diff beasts mixed together)- one formal, one casual. But I think as long as the cut is good it's all good

    Coming u as a bit lighter than navy on my screen. Looks really good.

    Yes, you're right. Not sure what type of blue this is then. Fabric is a flannel from Cerruti.

    Purple, lemon yellow, and coral.

    Just kidding. Cream and charcoal, with faint navy and light blue overchecks.

    The rust/burnt orange discussed in the last few pages would have been good for a square here, I think. But I understand; with a jacket pattern this busy, sometimes it seems like overkill to wear a square as well.
    Very nice!

    I respect Sir Crust and I would love to send him a [email protected] gangster chair instead of that small stool. I say this with good intentions.
