    @sansimeon your solid navy blue blazer and light mustard trousers ensemble, with the contrasting white collar shirt and dark chocolate tie, is a very nice look. When it comes to odd jackets, I'm very much a solids kind of guy. Love the C&J Tetbury style two eyelet chukka boots too. Well done! It's a thumb up from me.

    @EliodA the PoW jacket may be an orphan but your overall ensemble says "class act". Your personal aesthetic and style is consistently sublime and inspirational. Well done, sir.

    @SeamasterLux another very nice fit and look from you. Unfortunately, the look is spoiled a little by "tram track" creases in your trousers. But it's still a thumbs up from me.

    Ditto. @chocsosa is a continuous inspiration.

    A preview of autumn temperatures in NYC today - a perfect excuse to wear this suit again. Please ignore the braces shown in the detail photo - I had forgotten that Stuart's had forgotten to install brace buttons, so I've had to forego braces for today.

    I would have attempted the Friday Challenge this week, but this suit and tie combination really looks best with a blue shirt. I tried pink, and it was rather nasty-looking, and I posit that lilac would be equally bad, and I've not got a yellow shirt with which the tie would coordinate (nor an ecru shirt, which would have worked, but have been rather a cheat for the exercise).

    Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
    Shirt - BB
    Tie - Corneliani
    PS - New & Lingwood, London
    Cufflinks - The London Badge & Button Co.
    Braces - BB
    Shoes - Canali

    @sansimeon you're on fire, man. A big thumbs up from me. Details please.

    Edit: lateral fabric folds appear to be negatively impacting your trouser's front creases -- but otherwise a sublime smart casual look from you.

    Thank you, very kind. I am flattered.

    @upr_crust I've said it before and I'll say it again: earth tones suit you best. Great look!
