    Oh, not custom? Then don't worry, I'll look for something similar, thanks! :)

    I love the top half of this: that jacket is superb and with the tie and vest combination, has an air of ease and comfort to it. I'm not quite so struck by the bottom half and especially not the shoes, although that's partly my personal prejudice against loafers. A nice country brogue would have been my choice. Ironically, given that this is for the challenge, the thing that I think works least well here is the flower. I would have chosen a different colour or something not quite as large...

    Cheers FM. Always good with a review.

    Shoes. I agree that a brogue like my Marlows might have been better but I still stand by my choice of the loafer.
    Flower. Point taken. Not the most subtle choice :)

    Anden, I think its because the loafers look a little beat up. Had they been a little crisper, I doubt there would be talk about them. I do think the Marlows may have been better, but I love Marlows so hard that they are almost always better. : )

    So you all can tell me if this is just wrong

    wore an odd vest with a shawl cardigan today... I like it, but feel it may be excentric

    Thanks Gents btw I finally got my shoes in the picture

    It comes off like you've arrived at home after a long day at the office, ditched the jacket, and slipped into a cardi to ward off the chill. You're a student, right? If so, you can get away with this. I'd leave the cardi unbuttoned, though.

    Was feeling uninspired this morning so it's back to simple and boring with a touch of color.

    @Scbrown for what it's worth, I love the cardigan. Not sure if they 'work' together color wise, but it looks pretty cozy.
