    Funnily enough, I was thinking about getting the third one a couple weeks ago. My taste must be awakening! [​IMG]
    Fourth one I don't really like. All others look great.

    In bad taste but not featured in this photo: my penny loafers. Casual Friday.

    Question for the Men of Taste - other than the obvious (white linen PS), what might work with this combination? I stuffed a few different patterned, silk squares at home (none of which were satisfactory) and then had to rush to a meeting so I went ahead and left the breast pocket naked today, but I was wondering what might be an obvious match (unless the answer is 'white linen PS,' which is my go-to anyway). Thanks in advance.

    @lufty - good. You're at your best when you're doing the classic East Coast thing ... which raises a question ... why are penny loafers in bad taste with this outfit(?) You can't get much more classic than that(?)

    @ GDL I think a BD collar is optimal when there's no tie. The collar in your photo looks like it needs a tie. The pattern matching is outstanding as usual.

    I am VERY comfortable wearing a non-BD collar without a tie. This is one of the groupthink rule that I just won't subscribe to. Just like I will never wear a BD collar with a tie to look more eyetalian.
    nope

    gdl, deets on shirt and SC. also, do you ever button th etop, and if so, do you find the 2 button set up to be a bother/difficult to button.

    See above signor eduardo morello


    Shirt is Udeshi and has often raised eyebrows here because of the hashed stripes. SC is NSM, cloth is Dormeuil Scottie Derby

    Not sure I understand your question about buttons - I button both collar buttons if I'm wearing a tie - and I don't find it difficult

    yeah, just busting them. BTW, not that you care, but that is the only jacket that you have ever posted that I do not like. I know the fabric, but it looks kinda Hickey Freeman-ish to me.

    Personally not a fan of the two button collar, but I do like how it visually accentuates the higher collar stance. Hard to tell from this angle, but it appears as if the gorge on your jacket is pretty high. I find a higher-sitting collar a necessity when one is wearing a high-gorged SC. That fabric is also teh tits.
