    Cleav...the top half looks great as does the distance shot, then it starts to deteriorate. The pants seem to have an odd light blueish tinge, they appear too light in weight, too wide and the cuffs too narrow. Why on earth would you spoil it all with those socks? Just wear plain grey over the calf ones. Very nice shoes though.

    I usually wear a much more subtle and toned down tie together with this SC, such as a navy or black knit or grenadine, but this time I figured I would try out another way to go. I wanted to create something more "in the spirit of summer" and playful. I think the end result was pretty good, but I suspect that it will still not be totally SF approved.

    Hoodog,

    I like the idea of a block-stripe tie with that, but I don't like the gold in there with the orange-y color in the jacket.

    Maybe a red-and-blue version of the same time (a Guard's tie, I guess) would work a little better to my eye?

    You might be on to something there. I'll keep that in mind. Thanks!

    The tie is actually yellow and navy, by the way.
