    I would switch to cotton or mohair or wool fresco trousers. Something about linen with linen just makes me think of an unmatched suit. I may be the only one, though ...

    I'd also go with a cream gaberdine, silk or linen/wool blend.

    Take these shoes
    Click clacking down some dead end street
    Take these shoes
    And make them fit
    Take this shirt
    Polyester white trash made in nowhere
    Take this shirt
    And make it clean, clean
    Take this soul
    Stranded in some skin and bones
    Take this soul
    And make it sing

    I got many comments on the pink sweater, not really what I wanted in a workplace. So next time I will adjust that, and save the sweater for more casual times. Otherwise I felt it went well as an outfit.

    j.m. - can you tell me more about Massimo Dutti? I had a friend stay over for a few days and he swears by their shirts and had packed a few. I'm a bit sceptical of their quality, but they looked good on him, or at least would, if he ironed them [​IMG] B
