    It's good that you haven't crossed over the line where you think this is okay.

    Manton, would you consider a deep chocolate brown to be too country for wear with a city suit? I can definitely see the argument with something lighter like stitchy's above, but what about something like a dark chocolate Macclesfield?

    The one guy 'round these parts who looks to me like he has his secretary snap fit pics is oldog, but, for all I know, he may very well have had that secretary for two decades-plus. After that sort of tenure, you've kind of earned it!

    Given the consistency of the camera position, I suspect the camera is on a tripod or a shelf.

    I'm not a fan of that very dark tint of blue you've got going here. It looks dull and lifeless, and makes too harsh a contrast with the other colors.

    I concur. It is by no means ideal fabric for a sportcoat - an ideal fabric, to my mind, would have more surface interest (FWIW, it is a lot more blue IRL.) That said, it is super comfy and fits great, so I intend to keep wearing it until it's threadbare, God willing!

    For me, the white dots in the tie don't work with the white shirt. Plus, the brown is a weird colour in itself, and also isn't dark enough for the suit, IMO.

    I think the tie would look nice with a cream, or khaki colored linen suit.

    May I ask for your thoughts on this shade of chambray?

    [​IMG]

    Maybe it's too bright? It's from Mercer & Sons. After reading a couple articles in voxsartoria and die, workwear!, I'm becoming very interested in this brand, as a lover of button down collars. So I'm thinking of getting a shirt from them to see how I like it, and for spring/summer I would prefer it to be either chambray or broadcloth, not oxford.

    It is too dark, imo. Lighter, like almost white would be better, but I still wouldn't like the overall "shade".

    Saw that article as well--Derek (dieworkwear) just posted about them as well. That is indeed one sweet collar.

    Agree that I don't like that shade of blue though. Too... sea green colored.

    Yes, the saturation is what kinda throws me off about that blue in particular, but it's the only lightweight chambray I've seen at their site. Will probably look at their broadcloth offers instead.

    Was she sitting on your lap for the shoe shot?

    I don't think the tie and PS looks good together, but I like the shoes! Deets?
