    I could see that being a bit much, but I've found I actually like a bit of break. When I'm walking around, I feel like I'm wearing a Thom Browne suit if I start with no break.

    I have found this to be true at least for me in heavier fabrics in particular. I don't like the feeling of them swinging around freely because I can feel it much more when the fabric is on the heavier side.

    It's q bit cold today in Mexico, so it's suitable for this jacket but not for a flannel trouser. I opted for a heavier sharskin.

    @Alocin that makes perfect sense. I think @colco has just about the ideal (above) in my estimation.

    Far too little contrast, and that tie isn’t really ideal here. This fit needs some lovin’.

    Agreed. I think that also gets magnified by the slightly lower gorge and my wide shoulders. However it’s not low enough to bother me or make me look grossly out of proportion in my opinion.

    Tie and square for the office. A little more casual on an evening walk.

    99% of the time I would wear a light blue shirt with something like this, but I gave white a try today. Thoughts?

    I thought the brown tie was a nice touch on the white shirt, but I'd be interested to hear what the learned gentlemen of the forum think. I've been thinking of adding more brown/beige ties to my own wardrobe, and I'm thinking of pairing them with white shirts.

    Love a simple whitey, but blue would be preferable here.
