Great fit, dude
Thanks man! Every summer I forget how good this shirt is. Which I think may be the first popover Drake’s did but, I’m sure I’m wrong.

How much for an MTO linen overshirt, if you don't mind me asking?
I don't mind you asking at all, but I honestly can’t remember, it was a bundle order with a handful of MTM shirts. I think they just charged whatever the going price was that season for similar overshirt (summer ,19) e.g. no discount, but no up charge either.

Gents - I find myself not wanting to wear anything other than Drake's chocolate or tobacco desert boots, Sid Mashburn selvedge jeans, a gray tee (sometimes an oxford) and the linen olive green overshirt from Drake's. Have I arrived at a uniform? I don't want to give myself that much credit.

For the sake of some fun, what are some other ideas? Other colors or materials of Drake's overshirts? Other brands even with slightly different styles could be interesting, though I'm awfully attached to the 3 pocket linen. Maybe other overshirts + pant alternatives? I fear nothing will surpass my current go-to.

I like your "uniform". It sounds like a good one.

With that as your base, here are some things that you could add for some variety

I'm going to suggest some additional shirts. You mentioned OCBDs. Check out Junior's RTW, MTO, and MTM options. I'm thinking the madras on his site would work, too.

Swap out the overshirt for a chore coat. I like Drakes' navy or green cotton/tencel chore. Blue Blue Japan also makes a great navy chore coat, available at No Man Walks Alone. Another possibility is The Armoury's three-pocket blouson or 3PB. I love their olive linen version but they have so many different 3PB iterations.

Swap out the desert boots for loafers--Alden Color 8 cordovan tassels or Alden snuff suede pennies.

Swap out the grey tee for a breton stripe tee. There are plenty of these around--Sunspel and Informale make great ones.

Swap out the oxford shirt for a chambray button-down by Drakes.

Swap out the jeans for chinos--I love The Armoury sport chinos or their army chinos.

Try out some polos--The Armoury by Ascot Chang is the gold standard. Anglo-Italian, Permanent Style, and Natalino also make good ones.

Try a tie occasionally, probably a knitted one to go with your casual ensemble.

All of these will keep you in that casual/vaguely tailored realm you're currently in while offering more variety.
