    You know that I love casual suits. (All you plebs, please observe Parker.)

    - What's with the origami lines on the cuffs on the pants?

    - I like your thinking hiding buckle bling. Askew might be a bit too Hollywoodland for you, though. This is a good reason to own a belt with the sparest, barest buckle possible...or fully embrace the bling with a sterling slide.

    pants are too long for me. so I just turned up the cuff. I need to get to the tailor soon and hack off an inch or so... waiting to see if this cotton will shrink any more after a dry clean or two.

    thanks, I agree with you on the belt. I realize it's kinda douchey.. just having fun today (lapel pin ;-). the silver slide buckle is a good call. I'll look for one of those. I think J. Crew and Ralph have them.

    lol thanks man!



    I think the length of the shirt is throwing off the actual proportions... my thighs are similar in length to my torso methinks



    Thanks guys - I'm def thinking about this but like Parker and a few have mentioned the shrinking after a wash, I just need to be weary of it when I chop.



    Problem with sizing up is I get a billowing/curtain effect on the waist. My sunspel polo doesn't do it...but that's $100/pop... MTM is on the horizon but for now, I'd rather have the wimmenz stare at my chesticles ;)

    You need some casual suede derby's with that outfit, Ian. Nice shoes though.

    I know it's breaking the rules, but I actually think the bals pair well with the cleanness of the chinos here.

    Ian, what shoes, while we're on the subject?

    I see what you mean, kg. I think suede is more flexible/forgiving in its use than smooth leather.
