    Beat me to it.
    If you're worried about the cord bring too dress down for the flannel then a) the peak lapels help but b) you could go salt and pepper donegal (have to see it in person to know for sure) or I suppose herringbone or some very subtle pattern. But I'd stick with the gray flannel. Always the right option.
    Up top you could do a knit tie if you go the dress down trou route or challis or even a silk heraldic if you go the flannel route.
    Spoo manages to pull off silk with tweed and more dress down fabrics, so he'd say you could do grenadine or even silk macclesfield or whatever. But he's a magician and I'm still not sure how he does it; I think it's some advanced version of mind control.

    The irony is that NOT doing it is one of the first things he taught me.

    Yes on the Nike's Spoo. They're the Nike Flyknit Max. Fairly recent. Should be able to take some light soap/water to the upper, let them dry with some shoe trees; you're golden. http://sneakernews.com/2013/12/26/nike-air-max-flyknit-spring-2014-releases/
    I have a few multicolor pairs myself, super comfortable.

    Precisely. Not even digital capabilities, just for a freaking viewfinder. Boondoggleroid.

    Thanks for the suggestions gents! It just so happens I got in a pair of gray flannels from Luxaire the other day, had them replicate a pair of Michael Bastian trous.

    Have you had good experiences with Luxire? I have a weird body shape and not a lot of stuff fits me, only a few select pieces that I can have duplicated, right?

    Anyone else having nightmares about bros coming to into thrifts and using a Kiton for a zombie costume? Not quite Kiton level but rescued this one from a dude who was going to pick it up for a Halloween party. No 40R blackwatch left behind.

    Not pictured: recent Sammy and Mountain Hardwear fleece for me and Polo jacket that appears to be sized for a man but has many lady qualities. Put it on and my wife started laughing at me. Pics to come.

    Would you know someone who, maybe, has expertise in sneaker cleaning that I could say, send to for a fee? :D :bigstar:

    Look, I did teach you that. And that is a rule. But as you are learning, once you know the rules, you get to fuck around with them a bit. Im not saying its right, maybe its just sprezz.
