    I'll let someone else yell about the fit, but that's the first genuinely coherent outfit I've seen you post. Too bad you can't wear a jacket.

    nice job.

    LOL. Thanks for the response. The pants haven't been tailored yet and the shirt is the slimmest shirt I can find without going bespoke. I also need to buy a walnut belt.

    And it is too bad I can't wear a jacket. In fact my office is hosting a wine tasting and when I asked if I should wear a jacket the facilities manager who's organizing it gasped and sternly said no.

    WTF is wrong with the people in your office, TKE? The more I hear, the weirder they seem.

    (And, I think the tie is too wide and of a pattern which isn't suitable for the application.)

    Think you need to wear a slimmer tie.

    Belt looks fine...doesn't need to be perfectly matched. JT

    I guess it was bound to happen: I finally caught the Epaulet contagion. Despite what the image shows, the chinos are Merlot and the shirt is light blue.

    Nice color there, TB. They'll look cool in Fall/Winter too with some richer browns, blues and greens.

    Do you plan to rock them NYR-style, or will you eventually get them hemmed?

    Looks good. I'd go with a 3.25 inch tie though. And a FIH. The current one doesn't suit your frame. Shirt collar may be too big too.

    Looks good TB.

    A more casual approach today...half day at work, exciting Euro action after lunch and my first hockey game in almost 2 years tonight:

    I've seen moose knuckle. I know camel toe. This... well I don't know what this is. But it scares me.

    I think I'll keep cuffing them until someone tells me I'm trying too hard. My students absolutely loved the pants, by the way, although they all thought they were purple.
