    That's my jam. Big fan of wearing cardigans under suits and SCs in the winter. The "wooly waistcoat"

    I'm so glad that this thread validates my excessive acquisition of textured solid everything. Here's my best shot since it was cold and rainy enough to break out my lighter weight flannel today. Pardon the awful iPhone photo.

    This is one of the best threads on SF for inspiration.

    This is my favorite thread, and it has been giving me a lot of inspiration over the years.

    I like your outfit from that challenge, what would you have done differently?

    I was reminded of the Italian CBD thread as I wore yesterday a 3r2 navy chalk stripe flannel suit, light blue chambray shirt, navy grenadine, white linen square and cordovan tassels. I really wanted to swap the tie for a black grenadine, but I don't own corresponding black loafers (I was in a loafer mood).

    Completely agree. This look works in any place, time and environment...always elegant, understated and subtle.

    Very kind of you H. I might wear a different suit, tie and shirt. Other than that nothing much really :) Seriously though something along the lines you describe would suit, I do wear plain ties (green/blue/black/blue) more often nowadays relying on texture etc

    Agree with the posters above. I basically dress like this (or at least attempt to) 3-4 days a week
