    Royal is not right for BDs, the texture and sheen are too "luxe"

    burton, i like the jacket a lot, as well as the individual elements. however, the slacks seem too casual for the SC, its a tad discordant to me. sorry.

    I find this to be the case with 99% of the fits incorporating chinos/khakis.

    agreed.

    to me, a true dress khaki, like a real fine twill, thinner fabric, that wears like wool, (ed sells some i think) can work with a dress SC.

    but the more casual, chunkier khakis/chinos, that always look a tad bumply, those are always best served with a cotton SC of a similar vibe.

    just my opinion.

    ^^Gentlemen - Excellent points. Thanks. The fabric of the jack is duller in real life - photograph gives it more lustre. Generally I wear with grey flannels and suede shoes but I sometimes feel garishly out of place when I see others in jeans.

    So this overall fit is kinda bad, pants are way too light, but I always struggle with finding a tasteful way to work with this SC. Thoughts?
