    Thanks for your input. I could respond, but it would be a tedious response, and I suspect everyone is getting tired of the white shirt thing by now.

    This is very nice, much better than the last iteration in my opinion. I like the pink shirt and have always thought I would wear one but each time I have one I just keep reaching for the blues and whites or blue and white stripes so I have given up on them. This, though, is very good.

    I know this post probably belongs in the Thrifting thread, but I double-posted my previous post and so I overwrote it with this.

    Irony, sarcasm, or do you really like it?
    Clags shirt looks like a tattersal check to me, perfect companion to that suit.

    Thanks, mate. It's a no name Italian MTM made from Dormeuil Amadeus cloth.

    Yes but in summer with cotton pants and a lightweight jacket and no tie the dynamic maybe changes?

    You mean re: the navy pants? As long as it looks like a Summery fit, as opposed to biz-cas in worsted or flannel that says 'Suit' .[​IMG] Something with a wider hem and lower waist, say, in linen or light cotton.

    Nice loafers. BTW What's your feeling about loafers with a casual or formal suit? (not suede)

    What do you think of Cashmere trousers in general? I always found them too stretchy and found they lost their shape from about lunchtime onwards, saggy in the ass etc. Of course they return to shape but I eventually decided I didn't want to spend half the day with a saggy bum and ditched them for heavier wool flannels. Must say I find the same with lighter weight flannel too.

    Nice duds. You've got that John Beresford Tipton thing going on. Er, where are you sitting, is that like a love den?

    It all looks very comfortable but at the same time gives an impression of attention to detail. With reference to the earlier conversation, I think that this is one occasion where a white shirt might have been a better choice than the blue given that everything else is in the blue-grey range. Personally, or more probably because of my British background, I might have gone for black shoes but I like these ones (even if you are wearing them in the house...).
