    The weather was actually better than promised here today, so I decided to go with white chinos with the grey flannel jacket to make it a more summer-appropriate outfit.

    Weather has dropped the couple of degrees it needed to for me to tolerate a jacket & tie today:

    First picture is by far the best with respect to color. Others are simply to show the bottom half of the outfit (white trousers, light brown shoes).

    Not the greatest pic. Fucking with SF group think in more than one way here, gray SC + navy pants.

    Butler, that fit is just... wow. monochromatic without being boring. would never have thought gray up top on gray down below would work but, holy! very nice indeed.

    Grey herringbone tweed is classic.

    Haven't worn it for months, obviously, but the thought actually makes the end of summer a little easier.

    ^^ @ canta. The shoulders look a bit extended. Are they? That's not a critique as I think the silhoutte is great. Just wondering about your fit choices. I'm thinking about having a brown tweed made up. Hadn't really thought about grey. But then I have a Harris grey in the back of my closet and I never wear it. Don't know why.

    Canta, that jacket is great. Do you get extra points for the monochromatic background?
