    I wear suede shoes year round, never saw it as anachronistic in summer. It certainly doesn't wear any warmer than calf and, in fact, there seem to be more unlined suede shoes out there than calf.

    Lot of you guys seem like very high collars that reach about an inch above the suit. It looks strange.

    i could be wrong, but i think it a neopolitian thing. i never had shirts like that, but all my neopolitian ones have collars similar to those. they are excellent shirts imo, and i like the high collar.

    My bespoke shirtmaker, Charles Nahkle, adjusted the height of my collar based on the length of my neck.

    My MTM shirt collars from P Johnson Tailors are all high semi-cutaways based, again, on the length of my neck.

    Work with me here chief. Just a nice little fold. Or even a flourish. That sad little nub poking up from your pocket isn't doing anyone any good.

    Trying to learn a bit here so I thought I'd post two alternatives:

    1. [​IMG] vs.
    2. [​IMG]

    Any comments?

    Oh, and in hindsight: the pocketsquare in #2 could have been stuffed in deeper :embar:

    I really like this top combo and the coat is very nice, but, IMO too short on you.

    This one is the best in my opinion. Very nice use of the gold pocket square.
