    He's actually grimacing in fear at the various poisonous flora and fauna, it is Australia you know.

    Wearing my Lopez Aragon Teba jacket today. I'd like it to be at least an inch or two longer but I think I just about get away with the shorter length given the ultra-casual cardigan/jacket hybrid nature of the Teba. Tried it with wool trousers but it seems more at home with chinos and an ocbd.

    I like the general aesthetic of this fit. Teba with OCBD and chinos. Forgive me, because I think I've mentioned this before, but how tall are you? Or are your arms short? This outfit, maybe just the fit of the items or the camera angle, makes you look very short. Yes, you can get away with a shorter teba jacket, but the short jacket with high button stance and the low rise chinos that look snug in the thigh all give off an unbalanced look in my opinion. Also, is the jacket green? If so, nice choice.

    Thanks for the feedback @An Acute Style.

    It's a dark bottle green hopsack. I'm about 6' 1 in my socks but I'm cursed with stumpy legs (29" inseam) and a stout 38" waist. I'll have to see if Luxire can make me a couple of chinos with an extra inch or two on the rise. What do you think - two inches higher on trouser rise and two inches added to the length of the jacket with the buttoning point lowered?
