    I like everything about this but feel that the balmorals are a little too sleek. I think the Miyagi's you just picked up could be a better alternative?

    It's interesting. I have been testing out those Grant Stone bals for a few wears now and every time I post about them people mention how they aren't sleek enough for them haha. I like them but generally don't wear many bals, bluchers certainly work better for my wardrobe.

    Breaking out those Miyagi's really soon...

    Jeans are a little full

    X-post from CM. Darker jeans would have worked better imo, and possibly a leather shoe/boot rather than suede. Thoughts on the knit polo? Y/N?

    I like the jacket. The suede looks great.

    Really dislike the Polo with the fit. I think the SF thing of wearing polos with sport coats is really bad in general. I can see wearing a short sleeve Polo with a very casual unstructured linen or cotton jacket in the Spring/Summer. But otherwise, no.

    I like it personally and the green tweed jacket is so, so good.

    I know this one is MTM/Bespoke but do you mind if I ask what size you normally take @DavidLane ? 46/48?

    This is sort of an accidental outfit

    I like this thread, never contributed to it though. I find myself going for this look more and more, some shots, not full fit but give an idea of texture and color!

    X-post from CM, denim today with blues and suede. May have worked better without the pocket square.

    This thread is like Groundhog Day. The movie, not the holiday or the musical.

    I love this look, it's so me. I'm a gray color worker and my social circle it's very casual, so I'm looking for out fits that can be dressy but still causal. The SC,long sleeve polo, jeans and suede shoes it's the perfect balance. I used to do chinos, SC, leather shoes and long sleeve but I was feeling too formal. I love sport coats it's by far my favorite jacket when weather it's chilly.
