    trust me. I don't. while you pull it off, I couldn't. not with the nikolai valuevness of the shape of my cranium :/
    thankfully both my grandfathers had and my father still has a full set of hair, so I'm pretty optimistic.

    Nice look! The chambray shade of blue looks better in the close up than in the first pic, might be the colour balance.

    Great jacket. Where did you buy it from?

    I quite like the more saturated blue too, but either way this is an excellent summery outfit NOBD, that I would love to emulate in some way. Can anyone recommend where to get a very lightweight linen or chambray shirt like that with a medium French blue tint (not something all pale and washed out)?

    Also nice to see Diggsy posting some enviable holiday pics, a huge improvement on the wifebeater and shorts look I think you posted when you first arrived on SF. Being able to dress well in a business formal setting (I remember in particular a couple of good looking overcoat shots you poisted) while also able to look good dressed down for a casual and informal setting is a feat that has yet to be achieved by many of the more senior posters on this forum. Well done matey.

    Thx. The colour in the detail pic is more accurate.



    It's Caruso MTM.



    Thanks, nice man. I think I'll still like it when it's pale and washed out : ) Linen Thomas Mason fabric, btw.

    FYI, I am wearing loafer socks. They are totally hidden, and they stop you, from getting blisters. :)

    Look at the width of your chino shorts' hems ...

    Now look at the width of your legs protruding out of them ...

    Now get thee to a seamstress and get them shorts narrowed post-haste.

    Also men with spindly legs and ankles do themselves no favours going sockless in shorts.

    I can agree with negative criticism; if it is correct. I suppose they could be slimmed a little but not at all, really. The spindly legs thing is a subjective opinion, dude, come on.

    I have no idea what this means.

    Your best option from the recent pics would have been the rolled chinos with the tassel loafers.

    I know the weather has been warm back home - are you still in the UK or on your holidays somewhere?
