    I think your ideal SC wardrobe is going to depend on where you live , and work. For me I didn't own any lightweight SC's until I had to travel to the west coast often and was dying in what were comfy SC's for the midwest.

    I have an undisputed love for solids so I have a few of similar shades in different weights.


    Yup. It's too warm here to wear winter/fall jackets after May 1st usually.

    There are less bold patterns. I've a dark blue windowpane. From a distance it's just dark blue.

    I wear these with everything from jeans to flannel pants

    I think not. You'll never convince me you've worn that cashmere jacket with anything.

    solids with texture are the safest and most elegant bet - ie. herringbone provides nice surface interest

    Safest, yes, and elegant sometimes, but surely not the most elegant. Most of those are nice, by the way.

    Good eye! I like the Belvests very much NorCal.

    I meant most elegant only in terms of what a newbie should get to start out and not regret it later on

    certainly not Rubinacci elegant

    So your point is that you can't be safest yet most elegant?

    Those jackets are very nice. Do you have a similar summer collection?

    Oh my god. What is going on with your tie? It's actually worse than the jacket. What, is it six inches across? I mean, jeezus.

    What size do you normally wear Moo? The jacket itself is nice. Do you feel snugness around the shoulders/upper arms? While I don't think the shoulders are too big, the fit looks a bit off, but not because it is too tight either. Trying to put my finger on it.

    4x2 DB's- a lot of them.- Okay, a few 6x2's and 6x3's thrown in. I'll probably get some more SB's at some point but I'm not a fan of showing a lot of shirt.

    One could perhaps write a whole thread on it.

    Me too. It seems "squished" somehow but I can't put my figure on it either. I like the fabric though.

    Agreed. I like some kind of a pattern with contrasting colors on top.
