cross-post from WAYWT:
Plaid bedford, fatiques, grey tab-collar shirt & white/black polka dot scarf.
Might be a bit of a lazy/obvious comparison but reminds me strongly of:
Finally got a tripod for my phone camera and found a good spot to take pictures.
Timer went off early, lol.

Better texture view:
Are those the ripstop cargo orSlow's from this season? I am considering them as a better alternative to the Highland
They're the cargo (a.k.a. six pocket) pants from orSlow – the material doesn't feel/look like ripstop – more like sateen. I got them from eBay, so I'm not sure which season they're from. Highly recommended. Everything from orSlow is like the simple, not-awkwardly-fitting brother of EG. I don't have a lot of their stuff, but what I do have, I really enjoy.
^ ditto here - their ripstop fatigues snug in slowly and became my favorite casual pant. They have the six pocket in the same lightweight ripstop that I need to get - Thanks for info/ brand diversion over
I would cuff the pants and make them break right at the top of your oxfords. I feel like it makes the type 41's look a lot more flattering. Love that work shirt, one of my favorite ones. Good call on that!
@eluther I love that vest.
I'm still toying with an interliner - can anyone confirm what the maximum size the strings will take it to?
@ManofKent – knit part is 13" wide, max length on the side adjuster is 9", which puts it at 44". However, you could move the button on the side adjuster down, which would net you about an inch on either side.
Thanks - would be pretty snug on my 43" chest but might work.
Thanks for the help. I did try cuffing, but I'm 6'1 and and a single cuff hits pretty awkwardly for me. The OSBs are so chunky that even a single roll gives clown shoe proportions. Figured I'd just embrace the messiness for once lol.
Ended up cuffing this new pair of Olive 41 Pants, but this is pre-wash so unfortunately I think the cuff will still end up a little short when rolled once.
