    For me the most versatile sweater is a thin mid-grey v-neck or crew neck. You can wear them with a suit or casual with jeans for example.

    I think chocolate brown merino sweaters are very versatile.

    If you want winter khakis, why not just go cavalry twill or molsekin?

    In regards to that question about the sweater, I would say a V-neck wool-silk navy sweater... and dark green, and mid-gray hahaha I use those three color all the time.

    I agree with you in general, but @chocsosa just does snug jackets as a style choice. A few people (myself included) have said this to him and it always comes down to, "Thanks, but I'm good." Which is just part of having personal style.

    Sometimes when I post stuff I get grief for wearing too many patterns -- although now being multi-patterned is, annoyingly, more on trend -- which is a legitimate criticism that I accept, but still think, whatever, it's how I dress. Knowing exactly how you color outside the lines is liberating.

    I was on the edge, teetering on the precipice, but this post brought me back. Did you ever know that you're my heeeeeerrrrrooooooo?

    Tie was loosened for the party. Many belgian ales were consumed. Much rejoicing there was.

    Just FYI, if it matters to you at all -- and it needn't -- that's a women's cardigan. You can tell from how the garment buttons.

    @dieworkwear Yes of course it matters for me. [​IMG] I ordered it from the wollovers website. Can you explain it to me more detailed?

    Thanks.

    The buttons are on the left side.

    Re,

    Maybe not premium quality, but I have some J Crew chinos that are very heavy and seem to be indestructible. I've had them for years in the khaki brown color and I can't seem to wear them out. I wear them for winter golf too. I love the fit as the legs have a narrow opening. They keep a crease very well.

    Cheers,

    As the poster above mentioned, the buttons are on the left side. Men's garments have buttons on the right.

    The style isn't particularly feminine, and frankly, few people know that kind of gender detail. Again, only if it matters to you, and it needn't.

    I've always heard the same thing about buttons, but I do know that in terms of zippers on jackets, the left-right choice seems to also be based on the maker/country of origin. Like I'm pretty sure Ben Sherman stuff is opposite of what you would find at Jcrew or another american brand. So is it really a universal rule on buttons or just the vast majority?

    Ok for a minute i was confused but I found the mistake. You are right and not right. Yes if the buttons are on the left side its a women's garment. Didn't know that before. Thanks. But in my case they aren't because the photo was taken mirrored with my macbook. Here another pic my wife was taken seconds ago because i asked her. (Now she probably thinks I am totally crazy)

    ^ I love that jacket. Great color. What's up with the sweater. Are you hiding a hickey or a goiter or is that a neck brace.

    Just noticed to in the original picture that you're wearing a womens shirt too and you're wearing your wedding band on your right hand...or the picture is inverted and all is well.

    In Germany it is actually usual to wear the wedding band on the right hand and sometimes I get asked why I wear it left.

    All that "left" "right" can be confusing sometimes. [​IMG]
