    May not be Classic Menswear, but I'm a male, and what's not classic about denim, log cabins, and coffee in the morning..

    Don't care much for the square/bottom half matching action going on there.. something with a little contrast might have worked better..

    I'm honored. I like the look. Very light and fresh. I don't mind the matchy square. I'd recommend a puff fold to make it more casual. I think a light blue square would have been better though.

    I agree, it does look abit strange. In retrospect he should have worn denim jeans with denim jacket in front of a log cabin :)

    Maybe.. but I'm not as much a hat person and this was literally worn for Utilization more than anything else..you rock what you have and being I am not a hat person (more of a fitted snap back guy to be honest) this is the first and last hat of its like you'd probably see me in.. thanks for the words though!

    That's a great textural contrast. I wonder how it would look with a different color (olive?) coat or sweater. I love blues but perhaps one blue piece too many?

    I know what you mean. I did try but the jackets I had didn't look to work as well with this cardigan or they weren't thick enough for the weather.

    He's right Choc - the hat doesn't do you justice and the brim so stingy it looks like a fez. A man of your stature deserves something a bit more regal.
