    Sure, wearing a blazer with a wild lining on casual Friday with jeans or khakis when everyone else is dressed down sounds good. Heading out to a bar, even better.

    But, no matter how conservative the jacket, with a lining like that, you better not be a high-end transaction attorney and show up in a clients office. Even if your client is super casual. That would be my position.

    Ahmet Ertegün was the president at Atlantic records. He was a well dressed guy. Maybe the best in the entire music industry. In an interview someone asked him why he always dressed so nicely when he was hanging out with casual dressed rock stars. He said something along the lines of , "They want to see the guy who handles their money wearing a suit and tie. It gives them greater confidence in you".

    In total agreement. One of the great things about the creative industry is that I can get away with more or less anything I want. That said, I met with a client last week and wore a 9oz Minnis fresco navy suit, solid pale blue shirt, blue and red Repp tie and a white linen square. In contrast, I'm already drinking today. There's a time and a place. Time and place.

    By the way, I'm pretty sure when I was a little boy I had a sleeping bag that was lined in cotton flannel with that pattern :laugh:

    They actually make a pair of pants out of the pattern, if you ever feel you need to reminisce.

    It's a hunting and fishing scene. Trad to nearly nauseous levels.

    I don't see a peacock anywhere on those pants. Fail.

    Barims is a great example of this. Consistently has a coherent aesthetic. Pulls off some pretty outrageous stuff without looking like he's dressing to get attention. Seems fun, not self-involved. There's a lot to be learned from him.

    TTO too.

    PT - for what it's worth, I think you rock buddy. You've got some solid swagger. Not even a slight bit of sarcasm. You peacock in such a fashion that no one would question you, because it's clear you don't question yourself. Your sense of dignity and purpose in what you choose to wear is astonishing. I'll say it again: you rock.
