    Yup, it's the slippers that make it.

    If by "make it" you mean make it horrible, then yes, you are correct.

    I thought this was the peacock thread. Not the peacock that got backed over by a tractor trailer thread.

    This is your NSM cream linen DB, isn't it? It's looking great. This combo is very pleasant to the eye and I'm not sure I'd call it peacocking [​IMG]

    Yep, that's the one, thanks. I think the jacket itself is rare enough that it stands out and grabs attention, which I interpret as the main thing that defines peacocking, but I could be wrong. If you consider peacocking and pleasing to the eye as mutually exclusive...well...I'm much happier to be the latter. I guess I was a little too shy to put it in the good taste thread :embar:

    I like this thread. Not all of us work in a world where we attend formal business meetings every day. I enjoy seeing some self expression even if some of it is a fail from time to time. But, as long as you recognize the error, then you are learning, right?

    Beautiful jacket! I have a cream SB linen that I love. It is especially nice for weddings, summer and spring parties or just taking my wife out for dinner. It does stand out in a good way. It looks like you are going to a special occassion wearing cream. But I also like to wear mine without a tie, a blue spread collar shirt, multi color pocket square and well worn jeans and loafers without socks. I think it shows a fearless sense of style to wear cream since most people are afraid of it getting dirty. :)

    I would suggest that you try some combination of earth tones and light blues or dusty pastels with your ties and pocket squares. I think lighter shades of earth tones work very well against the natural color of cream linen. The blue tie is very nice but seems a bit bold against the cream, but it could just be the lighting.

    Thanks for all the suggestions, PSG! I tried a lighter tie that's kind of a dusty pastel before with it and was a little disappointed:

    But I will continue to experiment. The tie is this one:

    It's definitely quite bold against the cream, but I kinda like it. The texture helps it from being too overpowering IMHO.

    some bold red or green would go nicely with that light cream as well.

    Sounds like a formula for a Christmas tree with snow :)

    That dusty purple is too close in value to the cream. It does need more color to pop. You'll find other options.

    Here is a fun, casual look with cream. I especially like this look with loafers or drivers:
