    Not only is this a good looking (business?) casual outfit, it gives the Royal finger to THREE false SF tropes:

    1. Blue and green should never be seen. (What load of bollocks! Many shades of blue go fine with greens. When I was a kid I heard ‘red and green should never be seen’ which makes more sense unless you’re talking about the likes of royal Stewart tartan!)

    2. White shirts are too formal. (Yeah well with a bit of texture they are fine. qf also McFox’s polo).

    3. Navy odd trousers don’t work. Well we know this to be rubbish but further evidence right here.

    I dont think that particular light blue ps is the right thing... perhaps something with less sheen?

    But you are right, it is harder. As a boy shorts are fine but being comfy and dignified as a dude is harder. I generally go full rockstar that's not your thing. Perhaps the tie is too formal too for those shoes, depends on the situation though.

    If there are such things then I've been breaking them long before I joined SF. Especially since my fav socks are blue green striped and I wear them with matching attires most often.

    It's funny, I started out with mostly white shirts, then spent some time here and went almost all blue. Then I decided I might as well wear the white shirts I have. I never understood or subscribed to the blue and green thing. I think with the right shades they work well. The navy trou are less versatile than many other colours, but again, they're in my closet. Might as well wear em.
    :fonz:

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Is the S&M polo the BD or spread collar? Both fits look great.

    Thanks man. It’s actually one of their shirt collar polos from last year I believe. Been meaning to try their new cutaway and button down ones though

    Damn near perfection. Good show!

    I like the SC, I love a good brown SC, but it looks like the fit could be a little better. Maybe its just me, but it looks like at the very least the sleeves need to be shortened.
