    Thanks Everett, I think I pulled up my pants to lessen the break...Anyhow, I never really took rise into consideration but I guess it would help balance out my proportions since I'm so tall

    Enjoying what's probably the last cool day of the Chicago summer.

    [​IMG] Is this a joke? It's 80 degrees and sunny in Chicago today and you're wearing a sweater and a jacket?

    It was cool this morning, particularly out on my porch, where it's shady and breezy. I've since ditched the jacket, and the sweater vest is a light cotton-linen blend. Unfortunately, even my lovely porch won't be able to protect me from the weather that's coming up...

    Love it. Deets on the first pair of pants?
    I see the last pair are Epault? Might have to kop.

    Liam, this looks like a very practical jacket collar. Pulls so much that you can store your groceries and wallet back there.

    Is Marcellus still happy that Zed is dead btw?

    Not sure I catch your meaning on the first part, and don't know enough about jazz to answer the second.

    Ah yes, sunglasses and a stogie: a look few can pull off without seeming like a huge tool.

    He means that there is a significant gap between the collar of your jacket and the collar of your shirt. Not something everybody notices but when you do it will make you uncomfortable to see.

    Yeah, didn't know that's what that is called, thanks for actually saying something useful.

    I'm not sure whether that's a fit issue or that this is the first time I've taken this jacket off a hanger and worn it... I'll give it a few more wears and if not I guess I'll see if my tailor can do anything about it, assuming its fixable.

    All trousers except for the 2nd picture are from Epaulet. The first one was a special order.

    Tried black/white contrast on the picture, but not sure if I like it. Anyway, today's outfit:
