    @DonCologne - I think that outfit looks great! Especially the jacket. Care to provide the details on the fabric and who it's from?

    Thanks! The jacket is from Ermenegildo Zegna, lightweight wool, half-lined. So it´s perfectfor the spring/summer time.

    I haven't checked into the MC WAYW for a few months and gotta say wow DonCologne you've come a LONG way since you started posting. Your fits are much better, colors (generally) way more coordinated. Basically a huge improvement from where you started. Great job!

    Not feeling this. Jacket is much to formal a fabric and cut for the rest. Bottom half is screaming for a chambray up top.

    Love that belt. Where from?

    @europrep that's a cutaway collar on the shirt? How does it "hang" without the jacket on. I'm interested in non BD collars for casual shirts and have thought about cutaways as a good option where the collar won't flop out making me look like a creature from the 70s (e.g. spread collars will do this without magnetic collar stays).

    Thanks @arnathor and @selvedge8tweed

    Mazz shirt collar stays up well without jacket. I am traveling and will probably wear the shirt again, so will snap a pic for you.

    Cheer on the collar. If you do have a pic, please post. But I'm guessing that given the smaller collar, it stays up better than a spread collar. It would be nice to have a non BD alternative for casual shirts.

    And cobalt (?) trousers apparently. Feel like this must be a trainwreck.

    Thanks for the critique, it's a Suitsupply Havana and actually more textured than it looks on the picture. The Havana cut, even in navy, always strikes me as a tad too informal when I wear it with wool pants and dress shoes.

    Is that the grey poplin from last spring? Or is it chinolino?

    Please, for the love of god, do something about that prepubescent Juston Bieber helmet you've got on your head. I can't focus on any of your outfits with such abysmal looking barnet. I say this with genuine e-affection as I'm sure you're a good lad but its got to be done.

    But that's why I took a picture without my head in it!

    I was meant to get my hair cut like 2 weeks ago but I had to miss my appointment, lol.

    I want to feel like this is a trainwreck too, but something about it works for me. I don't think I could make it work but the outfits you post up on here make it seem like you definitely have the swagger to pull it off.
