    @dcg nice outfit but you dog makes the picture perfect. I don't know if there's a lot of Pitbull/Amstaff owners here, definitively nice dogs, I love mine to death!

    Thanks! I'm in line to make the curated thread twice in one week -- I'm humbled by the support. -- That being said, I've been looking forward to doing this all day, since I knew this is what the result would be: [​IMG] [​IMG] I suspect this confirms MF's advice that pleats fit my build better (and that I should press my pents). Could also mean that Borrelli doesn't drape well on me, which gives me a sad.

    Loooooooool

    I bet the crease is the reason. Yesterdays pants looks very round and wide around your legs. 99% sure that with a press they would look immeasurably better.

    AS, you are the only person I know that has ever used vacation and Detroit in the same sentence.

    Thanks for the comments AAS, I value your opinion as you are not by any stretch a timid dresser. FWIW I have tried this with a blue shirt as in theory 'a blue shirt goes with everything' but it washes the green out I've found. For this reason I tend to prefer white shirts with green pants (I don't expect green trews to be an item which will find too many devotees on here but anyway...)

    As for the scarf, well I like it. What in particular don't you think goes with the GP jacket?

    I hope that you enjoyed your visit to Detroit. For all the SF members from the metro Detroit area, it would have been pleasure to have met you. I have never eaten atop the GM Building which is referred to, still, as the RenCen. The food may not be the best in the city, but the view must is spectacular.

    My wife is from Detroit and her parents still live there. I have cousins, aunts, and uncles there too. We go every year or two mostly to see family. She tries to show me a good time while we're there too. She does a good job.

    Cheers. [​IMG]

    The scarf, jacket and pocket square are all very close in color. They all seem to just blend together. I think the look could use some more contrast.

    Thanks. The food was ok, but the view was outstanding. I had some rockin rye faygo for the first time while I was up there.

    I really liked TO. I dare say the business and business casual attire in TO was better than NYC.

    Detroit has it's problems, but I always enjoy my visits there.
