    Thanks. :)

    And yes, it's a Vanda tie and PS (just realised it actually).

    The jacket is an old Herringbone Sydney. Great for RTW, but... too long. And if I go a size down... too tight. C'est La Vie.

    What shade of pants would you have gone for. This one's is a rougher, more textured navy worsted. Would a dark (almost charcoal) gray be more suitable?

    Well that's kind of the problem with gray odd jackets. No obvious trouser choice. What about an olive-ish color?

    You know, Khaki just might do the trick.

    What kind of fabric? Fine cord? Wool twill?

    Gray odd jackets can a real pain.

    As you know I've got this same jacket too. I wear Charcoal trousers with it a lot. With what you have on I reckon charcoal or darker grey trousers and a darker brown shoe would have been win.

    My favourite OTR odd jacket also.

    It's quasi small time but I don't find it offensive.

    Wondering if this is "good taste" business casual. I am becoming increasingly intrigued by pocket squares that share a lot of the colors of odd jackets.

    I'll go against everyone and say, I like it. Is that the BB #5 stripe? I have the same one in the #4 stripe, and I get compliments on it regularly.

    How low of a temperature do you guys wear your medium weight fresco? I have a suit in the ~10 oz, not the lightest and it feels kind of warm.

    I personally cannot wear the 10 oz fresco in real heat but the 8 oz from minnis or the 7 oz from wodehouse are fine
