    I like the blue donegal. I was eyeing a Richard James blue donegal at Mr. Porter, but it sold out immediately upon hitting 70% off, as you might expect.

    Blue donegal seems like a nice solution to the "I don't want a navy blazer" blue jacket problem.

    to OTC: are we talking high tops here? If so, you might want to tell converse to get them off their target shoes....

    Low-tops...and it is a different kind of star than the high tops.

    Haha too bad! My mentality was that I already had a navy blazer and didn't feel like a grey one. Earth tones were on low priority so I wanted to try out this blue donegal. Glad I did. I wanted something really casual.

    It's fine, emart (I like the shoes) - but what it brings to mind to me is how hard it is to wear chinos and not look like biz-cas.

    Everytime I do it I feel like I'm in IT trying to make a good impression on the managers.

    I love chinos, almost more than jeans. If they weren't so damn light colored I'd wear them every day.

    Nice combinations and how refreshing to not have to read the tiresome refrain 'excuse the shitty iPhone pics'. It all seems very close fitting though, which makes the proportions look a bit :foo:ish. Welcome to SF.

    Yea, definitely nothing effeminate about it. Not a fan of the tiny collar though...

    If you can guess the location of my shoot, you'll win the pocket square.

    Jacket is cut very short, looks as if his seats half exposed. Just like an Anne Klein women's suit jacket.

    Or you could call it fashion forward Thom Browne style.

    Nice look. Location is Patterson Park? Looks like the pagoda/tower thing up there.

    I think this is spectacular. Sure, the jacket is short for MC standards. But if anybody can pull it off an azn can.

    Given the general size of the universe, that's pretty close. The pocket square from the picture is in the mail.


    Well damn, Pete! You sure do know your Charm City landmarks.

    The OTHER pocket square from the picture is in the mail to you as well.


    And thanks!
