    I was about to joke that it'd look good if you were in Australia and wearing a P. Johnson suit, but then I clicked your link and realized you satisfied both requirements! Ha. I agree with @Stiva that toning down the formality of the rest of the fit would make the sneakers work well. Lose the tie, try an odd jacket and trousers, or try a polo shirt under the jacket instead of the shirt and tie.

    I think perhaps wearing a khaki suit or dirtier white sneakers would be better?



    For some reason that pic is proving edmorel's theory about sneakers with suits not being such a good idea

    My guess is 80-20 wool cashmere (wouldn't it be so cool if I was right!?).

    Also, Europrep, I definitely dig the gray jacket and navy pants combo you posted. I'm generally not a fan, but I think it works after being taken out of the strict CM context (done by removing the tie from the equation).

    re: gray sportcoat, thanks Clags

    The Mario sportcoat wears almost like a thick flannel shirt. Very comfortable and although very trim to the body, it was extremely comfortable wearing throughout the day.

    edit: FYI...I own two blue Mazz shirts in case anyone was thinking I had bad laundry habits.

    :slayer: Fit looks great! Throw a scarf or or something in and you'd get my vote in a MC cozychallenge.

    Fantastic. So well done.

    Is the scarf made of fabric from your business?

    First off, I am getting Effn' fat, look at that chin, it looks like a beach-ball.

    Anyway, today is another photography day and I am wearing a trusted set of clothes.

    British made Wax Cotton Jacket
    Fisherman Out of Ireland sweater
    BB OCBD
    Atlier B Trousers that are made in Montreal
    Sorel Duck Boots

    Everything is thrifted.

    So I got a waistcoat and cotton jacket on sale a while back. Does this outfit work okay?

    That hat is very cool.
    Stop trying to dress like your favorite character from a Korean drama. My best advice to you would be to scale down your adventurous nature and stick to some simple basics. You have a great sense of fit, so build on that. Forget about waistcoats and fancy pocket squares. Jeans, simple shirt and that jacket would be a good combo to begin with. Try posting that here.
