    This green corduroy jacket is becoming my favorite thing to wear with jeans. Corduroy may be incongruous with the "sockless" look bit I don't care.

    ^ this.

    Taken to the extreme - when I studied business, I read a case study of a cell phone brand who consistently let out unfinished products on the market, and when they broke down, the brand in question gave the best possible service in repairing them. The customers were so happy with the great, no hassle, service that they stayed with this brand.

    I would never suggest anyone to follow this scheme when making menswear though, because repeated bad quality will deter customers quick as hell, but it may say something about always giving the best possible service. Even if you think the customer is extremely picky.

    Green + blue (in the right shades) is one of my favorite color combos. I have a sea green tweed in the works I can't wait to wear with... everything from white denim to raw denim to light grey flannel.

    I can't wait to see this. Tweed and denim are made for each other.

    I love it! I lived in Dubai for a while and my American and Commonwealth friends always used to say that when you saw someone in pants like that it was always a Dutch person or a Nordic person. Interestingly, Americans share a similarly colorful sartorial history. The Trad Ivy style is full of bright colors, madras jackets, white shoes, etc.

    Yes, very common in Holland. Usually worn with brown suede brogues while binge drinking with your hockey pals. Field hockey of course, none of that north American nonsense.

    You surly can observe chinos like that in Norway, but they are pretty rare, though. For me this is typical british, weekend style. Accompanied by loafers or derby brogues.
