    Nice place to go on vacation AAS, I wish I was there right now LOL.

    I use spradilles a lot in the summer time over here. This type of shoe is very cool for those awfully hot summer months.
    Your vacation wardrobe is full of pastel colors! I am more of vibrant colors for that time of the year.


    Here are a couple of outfits I wore these past few days:

    @Chulillo

    This would be my daily style for work. But I'm too lazy to take pics. Are most of your collars spread or button down?

    Well, I would say it is a 60-40 ratio. 60% button down - 40% spread... I like variety :)

    @Chulillo I really like what I can see of that blue blazer in the top right pic. Where is it from?

    Thanks LeBeef, I bought this blazer about 7 years ago or so... It is a 100% cotton unstructured blazer from Pull&Bear (a Spanish Brand). This mega-chain has clothes that are leaning more towards SW&D than Classic Menswear but I went in and tried it on and for like $20 I couldn't resist it. I have used it a bunch since then so in the end it all worked great. It looks great in person, a lot of people not only compliment me on it but they ask, as you did, where did I buy it from, because it doesn't not look like some crappy one-season piece of clothing from those mega-chains. That store really sells crappy quality clothing for the most part but once in a blue moon you find something that is not ugly and is actually well made... I was the lucky guy who found this :)

    A nice jacket indeed! Somehow Pull&Bear is quite popular here in Indonesia (Spanish brands are doing very well here, Zara, Mango...) but I've never seen anything there that I'd want to wear. Seems like they ship the ugliest collection to SE Asia! If only they sold stuff like your blazer...

    Well, you would not believe how they started in the early 90s. Their clothes was actually more leaning towards Ralph Lauren than to what it is now... it all went downhill at some point... As I said, I bought it a long time ago and went in there to buy crappy White t-shirts for the summer to work around the yard. They sell them really cheap and they are so thin and crappy that are the ones I like better to stay cool. If they get torn, I throw them away and buy some more next year. I was really surprised about what I found.

    @Chulillo Thanks for the reply. The blazer looks great! I'll be lucky to find something like that as I'm on the hunt for an affordable navy sportcoat, too.

    This thread is very quite today...

    Here are other two of mine... the first one is probably from the last time I get to wear a sweater/cardigan this season...

    On this other one I amplified the garment of the trousers so you could see the pattern (which I think is really nice)... and was not perceptible before.

    @Chulillo

    Do you get your shirts custom? Been thinking about all my casual shirts now, if I get them custom should I get them long enough to tuck in or shorter so it stays untucked. I mostly wear all my Club Monaco button downs and J crew untucked but I sometimes think should I tucked in my casual shirts.

    No I don't @7_rocket all my shirts are RTW. I really don't have the need to go for a custom made shirt at the momento. :)

    @Chulillo who makes your PAM hommage, Getat or Jackson?

    On a side note, I wish I could be in athletic shape like you, everything seems to fit and look better when you look the part!

    Well, I think it is from Getat. I bought it from a mate in a watch community so I don't really remember. I have many of these. xD

    About being in shape, everyone can, just focus and take a little bit of time every other day and that goes a long way.

    I like the scarf, perhaps unsurprisingly.

    @Chulillo consistently strong fits.

    And @Cotton Dockers I like that combination. Arpentuer is the trousers?
