    Have you ever thought about custom made shirts? The one you are currently wearing looks rather tent-ish

    ^True, it's an old RTW. It's actually going to become pockets on my next pair of cream flannels. I'm gradually phasing all my RTWs out as a make more shirts up, the trick is finding the time. I'm going to buy a buttonholer soon, which should knock 4 hours or so off each shirt.

    Nice, Duke. The tie and square are too close in color and pattern for me. But I like the way the tie brings out the overcheck in the pants. I think often success in patterned pants relies on tying together the top and bottom half somehow, as otherwise too much attention gets attracted to the pants on their own.

    That is a nice patterned combination. Not too loud.
