    hendrix, us young guys can pull off the v-neck tee under a blazer. It looks good. No need to change it for a shirt.

    The fit is superb, but the strong shoulders on the jacket clash with the informality of the deep v-neck. A crew-neck would be much better, as well as have a less structured jacket. I'd remove the pocket square, as it looks like you're trying too hard, t-shirt and all... The pants are marvelous, and the shoes are MC-subjectively ugly, but whatever strikes your fancy there. The main problem is the shoulders on the jacket.

    wool--sort of a mismatch with the cotton jacket, but OK in transitional seasons IMO. Want to get some summer weight Younts this year.

    After reading the SW&D WAYWT for a while, I've decided to try to incorporate sneakers into my casual jacket fits. Not sure it looks good, comments? Also, the shirt is quite a fail. Knew it as I was leaving home, but had no time to change.

    I'd really like to see a better-lit pic of that jacket, especially a closeup.

    I dig it. Although the sneakers would be better without the pony this would be great for bar/grill type scene.

    You should x-post to SW&D, acecow. We´ll be nice, I promise.

    Спасибо, я знаю, что с рубашкой лоханулся. Но так надоели светло-голубые, ей-богу!


    I should, but I don't really like this fit, mainly due to the shirt. If it were a different one, I'd post it there. This is more experimental to me.
