    I'm always amazed how many other Sci-Fi fans post here; is it mere coincidence that StyleForum shares the same "SF" abbreviation...? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I can't wait to see what Disney come up with for the new Star Wars movies.



    Back to clothes, if I must, for one of my rare entries into this thread...

    OK, more of a question than a fit pic--feel free to tell me this is the wrong place for this.

    I am looking for another sportcoat to wear to work. I rarely have opportunity to wear a suit, but I do like to dress it up a bit, and have been wearing more sportcoats. I have been debating what color/pattern to look for for my next coat. I work in a fairly conservative environment (but nothing crazy), and would, hence my posting here, like this coat to be in Good Taste.

    I currently have a solid navy, a brown herringbone tweed, and a tan/brown PoW check with light blue overcheck. Suggestions for coat number 4?

    Please help me, oh tasteful ones!

    The navy is a lightweight hopsack with patch pockets and metal (silver colored) buttons.

    IMO, that shirt just shouldn't be paired with any type of sportcoat. More under a sweater or casual with the sleeves rolled up if at all.

    HF - I think your tie and pocket square are at war with each other here.

    Stitchy, for whatever reason (maybe I got too much sleep last night and I'm in an uncommonly good mood) I don't hate it. So, there's that.

    I enjoy your bomb-throwing, o/o, especially when it's as subtle and comprehensive as this.
