    Persols on croakies, no less. Some Southern frat swag there.

    The SC is actually Uniqlo from last summer. They were selling them for just under $150 IIRC. I bought 4 and use them as my summer drinking jackets. This is jacket number 3, actually. First one I wore into a pool for a late night swim. Worth it. The second was tragically lost during my fraternity summer alumni weekend. Whereabouts unknown. To my knowledge they didn't make this jacket this summer, or if they did I missed it. Either way it fits me pretty well and is nice and disposable.

    I still remember this one from a long time ago...still quite impressive. Though French Cuffs would send it to the stratosphere (from what I can see they are not...).

    I just edited my comment as you posted...I like the tie (especially if it is in the Spring) and would need a close-up of the square to be sure.

    Nii, this is great, and a prime example of coherence being essential to successfully bold looks!
    The great, bright, bold, linen coat is tempered by the staid and solid trousers and shoes, which in turn are brought up through the fit with the shirt, tonally similar to the trousers, yet formality and texturally the same as the sports coat, all topped off with a great square and an open neck.
    Anyway, that's how I see it!

    Thank you everyone for their kind comments. It's very flattering to be thought of in such lofty terms. I must say that I feel my looks/fits fail on some level a large % of the time, usually due to fit rather than concept. It is easier to portray an outfit well in a static image than in real life and I am lucky enough to a take reasonable photo. I think given the funds and inclination anyone can dress well & in good taste. All it takes is a well made clothes that fit properly in basic combinations, and well chosen accessories (guided by your tailor if you really have no idea of what works with what) . Having the flair to put unexpected items together in a tastefull manner is another step along the trail, but not one I think can't be learnt through exposure. I say that the good taste thread and this one should be interchangeable, if something is a success, peacock or not, it should be well thought out in tone, texture, pattern and fit, all of these things should be coherent, with the extremes pulled together by linking pieces, be it the texture & tone of a dark knit tie pulling the informality of raw denim through to the top of an outfit, or a suit in outrageous fabric tempered with non competing tones for accessories in a mixture of patterns & textures?

    Just a thought.

    uhhh....apologies to those that remember my posts the other night (esp the person my question was directed at); drank too much while on the interwebs (never a good idea). anyhow, glad this thread is still going.

    I'll have to remember to take pictures to post someday. I enjoy seeing the pictures and getting ideas!
