    Nice. The difference in saturation and color between pic 1 and the rest is extraordinary. First one is out of whack? Nice to see so many POWs.

    Hi. :)

    I like this for the most part. It gives me some inspiration for what to do with my jeans. I would say that I vastly prefer chinos with loafers and boots with jeans. Even though they aren't visible, I would instictively pair suede chukkas with this outfit as opposed to the stated loafers. YMMV

    Also, I would do a silk knit tie or a really rough linen blend one, but that's more of a personal preferance thing.

    First off, thanks, Stitchy, for the compliment.

    Secondly, welcome back, Citan - nice to see you posting again. I like today's posting, though today's tie might be a little formal for wearing with jeans (to luv2breformed point), but it harmonizes nicely, in terms of pattern and color, with the jacket.

    What's the shirt, please?

    Welcome back. It's difficult to be sure from the photo angle, but I think a slightly lower buttoning point and wider lapels would flatter you more. It actually looks fine through the torso, though of course you'd be able to tell the reality of that much better than I, just from wearing it.

    Casual today, so spoilering:

    @Holdfast it's a long sleeve cotton polo by Eidos Napoli. They make a few different models so I'm not sure exactly what they call this one. @NickPollica would surely know...

    A non-casual Friday in the office, which is sadly located far far away from Lake Como.

    This might actually be more casual but I'm putting it here anyway:

    Maybe so!



    I do have suede chukkas, so I will try those next time. My tie collection is somewhat limited, but I agree 100%. Looking to get some more ties along these lines for spring/summer wear.


    Ditto the above comment. I went with what I could but I agree it is somewhat formal.



    I agree, I prefer a lower buttoning point. I got this from Yoox and it is a boglioli, which in general fits me well and tends to be a bit broader in the lapels.
