    Seems to be. Thank you!

    I thought it might be a Tandy Leather buckle, but searched through all and couldn't find it.

    I bought a bridle belt from a company called Dubarry of Ireland that came with the buckle. It's a brass quick release. Dubarry no longer carries it but Equus Leather now offers a belt with a near identical buckle. Remembering where that buckle came from send me down memory lane; the top Google image result for "ludlow quick release" is a picture I posted to SUFU in 2008!

    That's the same belt and buckle. I've since given the buckle a good polish and shortened the belt replacing the snaps with waxed cotton thread that I stitched. Leather is Tandy.

    Good eye! I was trying to hide the shortness of the right sleeve length. The jacket has fake surgeon button holes and two of them are up inside of the sleeve! I'll work with it.

    Yeah, I really hope that comment was a joke!

    But what part of Dig's getup brought it up? The stone washed jeans color? It's sort of a reach to say that color brings to most people's minds Steve Jobs' uniform. The generic Dad- that I'll buy.

    I see two takes on casual business dress- NiceGuyTom's, which isn't doing it for me (black oxfords and french cuffs don't lend themselves to casual easily), and NewYorkRangers, which does: the black shoes are boots, the shirt is a OCBD, and the cardigan stands in place of a coat.
