    I like the outfit and the cap's your thing, but I don't think the particular shirt, or more particularly its collar, works so well with the tie and jacket here. You've got an unstructured jacket and a casual tie (mine are getting a lot of wear and a lot of attention BTW), but the shirt collar is all business. I would have prefered an OCBD (or anyway some kind of BD) here.

    I've come over all Ivy today... quality of the photos is terrible hence the size. Deets: MTM jacket based on a 1960s mod model, Kamakura Tokyo slim fit BD, vintage 1960s BB tie (one of 5 I got hold of recently), BB white linen trousers, woven belt, Mazarin burgundy socks, taupe suede Santoni cap-toes

    A white PS would have set it off, I know, but I came in to be interviewed for TV news and you it's always best to dial it back a bit for TV - they don't see the trousers BTW! - and no, I don't have a belt to match the shoes, that would be a step too far.

    Pretty much all of this is excellent, as usual, but the suede chukkas are not working here for me.

    Here is my continued trainwreck attempt at making use of my odd waistcoat. Didn't properly place the square but it's just blue white and a splash of yellow.

    I expect people will hate this, but would appreciate thoughts.

    Tis indeed!

    Do you prefer your jacket sleeves a bit longer? I know different 'schools of thought' have different opinions on this.

    Murl. Are you somewhere other than home right now? Because you'll melt in that outfit today.

    X-POST:

    It's actually way too hot to wear this today, but I wanted to try out the new pants + shirt, so I snapped a picture for the FC before changing into a short sleeved polo shirt instead.
