    I like the socks and the loafers (the snuff suede looks great with the colors in the socks), but I think a looser trouser would look better (hiding a little more of the sock).

    EDIT: It's also all cold colors on top of all warm colors, which can be tricky. I think some warmth above the waist might help.

    Linen under sweaters. The bees knees.

    Wore the same boots as yesterday; didn't expect it to rain, only rubber soles I had.

    I suck at pictures so nothing else.

    btw, to your comment about how you think the DB is elegant, I appreciate that. There are things that bother me about this DB—its extended shoulders are one of those things. I took a video of myself walking and posing in my office—the height of vainglory, I know—and seeing it in motion makes a difference.

    Hmmm, the shoulder is extended and the sleeve length is a bit long. I think you should post a video to show how it looks in real life :)



    Seriously though, I like it very much. I was going off the idea of a db sportscoat but this makes me reconsider.


    A very Happy New Year to you all from Australia!

    Persistent buggers, you Kiwis. ;)


    BTW, your ensemble is utterly unassailable. :)

    Thanks :) Saint Andrew's clothing is a wonder - every item fits me so well and they are comfortable and luxurious. I just bought a suit of theirs which I'll post when it arrives.

    Love that tie! May I ask where you got it? The jacket fabric is unusual - is it linen? Very nice ensemble.
