    That looks a million times better without the jacket, ETB. The sweater's sleeves are too long, and it just looks rather unkempt with the jacket over it.

    I have a red crewneck that I'll wear with an OCBD, tweed, and jeans pretty regularly. I think this could work with, say, a dark brown cord or moleskin jacket, or better still, something more casual.

    Why, thank you sir!

    Slapped together in a mad rush while running late for work. Seems I function best under pressure.

    +1 I don't really like a jacket without a shirt collar underneath.

    You have three areas in need of attention: 1)Strap on a dress watch. That thing you're wearing would be better suited for ski togs. (BTW, your holiday sounds fantastic!) 2)Cuff the trousers. (Faux cuffs if short of material.) 3)Break out the edge dressing. Lord, am I persnickety.:embar:

    A blue blazer with patch pockets, in linen or hopsack, would dress down much better.

    Thanks all. I tend to agree with all of your comments. The jacket doesn't really work, it does need to be something more casual.

    He's easily bored, but on the other hand he's just gotten a walk, so he's pretty content. The tie is blue, but the contrast to the suit may have it looking a bit purple-ish.

    Might not be the place to put this, but I took this photograph in Hamilton and as you can see it made it to Mr. Porter. I guess what I'm trying to say is, if there are any narcissistic south western Ontarians looking for photographs, hit me up, son.
