Don't know if this applies but here's my contribution.
IMO, that would be by far the ideal solution.
In fact, I'd also prefer it if the SW&D and MC forums were also rolled together. The major reason this doesn't happen is because many posters don't come into a WAYWRN thread to enjoy seeing cool outfits in general, but to learn & refine a particular style of dress. The friction that results when outfits that don't fit that aesthetic then becomes annoying for everyone to deal with. So over time, this silo approach of different themed threads has evolved as a least-worst option. It's a pain in the backside IMO, compared to a single catholic thread, but at least it allows various different aesthetics to be explored without a barrage of groans from everyone not interested in that aesthetic. In short, it's crap, but slightly less crap than constant arguments. Frankly, I think it's analogous to having to separate squabbling cliques of kids in a cafeteria, but there you go...
Of course, in the case of the major division between SW&D and MC, the segregation also leads to more specific advertising opportunities, thus cementing the division but that wasn't the original cause.
My dark gray flannels are the core of my odd-trousers collection.
Nope. But it looks nice!
Broke out the wheat suit this weekend for an outdoor brunch one last time before Labor Day. The result might qualify here.
I know it's ultra-matchy. I'm trying to resist, but sometimes it takes over.

Interesting, I always thought that mid grey was the sweet spot for a versatile odd trouser.
They're not charcoal, so maybe what I'm calling dark gray is what you consider mid-gray?
Very nice! But then I am not impartial since I have an outfit that looks very similar.
Agree. And I do have those in my wardrobe. I miscontrued your suggestion of lighter pants to mean light color pants.
I guess today's fit is peacockish as I'm probably the only guy wearing a poplin suit in the whole city...
Tie is pre-SF (as are most of my ties), I know it's ugly. I'll do better over time
Suit: Holland & Sherry cotton MTM
Tie: Canova's Club
Cross post from the main thread!
Multi-pattern bingo & mistimed blinking!
I'll let you peacocks consider some woolen & cashmere fabrics for ties this fall.
Hmm, where from?
Almost as nice of a guy as the other tie maker that doesn't make ties for "giants" .
First post here - be gentle
That Cappelli stuff looks great. He will definately be my source for cashmere ties and pocket squares this fall!
