    Sorry Theo. this is a fail. I've said before that there are many people on here who display an advanced knowledge of formal business wear but can't get to grips with casual, and it looks like you are applying for membership to that group.

    That shirt should never come into contact with denim.

    What possessed you to think a pocket square would be appropriate with a trucker jacket? It's just too cross-cultural!

    I often admire your suity looks, and you are the only SF member who looks good with a beard, but this pic is not working for me.

    I am still on the fence about this one. I like lots about this look - but I am just not sure it is 'TTO'...

    I can see why someone would see this fit as garish (I kinda do, too), but I like the miss-mash of patterns and materials. The only thing I don't really like are the shoes; I would have gone with a light tanned boot (or something), myself. :slayer:

    Abe, I like all four pieces, just not in this combo. Don't like the grey on grey or the 1/4 zip cardigan alone (nothing under) with the sport coat. The top half is simply too neutral; needs some color and another contrasting layer. It appears the jeans fit well and I'm a fan of the tassel loafer in calf, but don't like them together (suede tassel loafers might work).

    Those loafers are definitely shell.

    "Hey Pinterest is too girly. Let's make a similar site that won't scare off the dudes."
    "Great idea!"
    "Ok, let's brainstorm some site names."
    "How about 'Fancy'."
    "Brainstorm session over! Fancy it is."

    They settled on Fancy. Scrumptious was taken.

    Thanks for the pointers. I have a blue OCBD to swap the sweater for that will dress it up a bit and add contrast.
