    So if one has a French layout keyboard (AZERTY) it can be typed instead of an apostrophe, without using the Character Map or whatever Alt-code it is.

    German QWERTZ has it, too. Discussions about keyboard layouts should probably have an end...

    This is really important, furo. :)

    And this might be simpler than my description:

    Bummer... there's no alt codes for Mongolian Script. :(

    As a place to start, try searching on "linen Inis Meain". Inis Meain is an Irish Aran Island knitting company that make beautiful, beautiful things. I've wear a natural/greenish knit linen zippered cardigan instead of a jacket on these spring days. By Inis Meain, rebranded as J.L. Powell. I've seen Inis Meain in Jack Straw, in various UK shops, in A Suitable Wardrobe; they're always glorious. Not cheap, though; you might either have to save up or wait for sales. Remember the mantra: buy less stuff, buy fewer but better things; your wardrobe will be a better place.

    An Inis Meain linen sweater is a more natural marker of spring than colorful pants. For me; what is natural to one person isn't natural to another.

    You are wearing a blazer, gold button and all with a shirt and cable-knit sweater, things that are rather dressed up and certainly winterish, your bottom outfit is super casual, being jeans and boat shoes. It is also super summerish since you are not wearing socks. You would have never thought of doing this in a million years if Pitti Uomo/the Internets hadn't raped your mind. New ideas and trends are interesting but you need to use critical thinking when including them.

    It really is hard to say because the picture was taken at an angle but isn't the jacket having slimming your silhouette and elongating it in a rather weird way? I doubt you wanted to obtain the Dior Homme columnar look (wich works in midnight blue or black w. white shirt only IMHO) so I'm puzzled.

    I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to say with the DH reference but yes, most definitely the angle and focal of the crappy shot make the upper body look longer and the legs look shorter than they are IRL. It would look very different if I could step back a few meters and crop the picture. It seems to be a somewhat common issue with those close mirror pics.

    Deets on the jacket, it looks great for casual wear.

    To be fair, the sockless thing has been a long-time staple of "trad-preppy". It looks more like an american preppy outfit from the 80s to me than a Pitti thing. Both the gold-button blazer and the boat shoes are nautical items, so it sort of makes sense conceptually... in a "drinks at the yacht club" kind of way. But I agree in general it looks a little too formal up top and casual down below.

    Dior Homme made slim suits but they weren't done using strong shoulders and nipped waist as much as slim all over with squared shoulders (not extended at all). It only works on slim guys with a body that matches the suit (no fat, no muscles, preferably tall) which is why Sarkozy looks like a moron when wearing his DH suits. Your pic looked like that but since I've seen you post outfits before and figured you are a 42-44 not a 6'3" size 38 I figured something was up.

    Gotcha. Not sure how you get this vibe from the pic but you're correct, I'm a 42-44, 200lbs guy so this is not extra slim by any means. The waist isn't really suppressed either - if anything the coat is very unstructured and soft, and gives an anti-DH/slim vibe IRL.
