    I agree with Howard. I've noticed it when you've worn purple ties and shirts, but this sport coat emphasizes it.

    You will note the lack of Bermuda triangle. Very good!

    There is a gentleman in the bar I patronize that dresses like this (without the hat.) He looks very good and stands out even more that I do.

    Without the hat....

    So there’s a guy at a bar who wears dark colored trousers and a conservative button-down shirt? And he stands out?

    I agree upr that upr looks good (when doesn’t he?), but that’s a pretty basic, nondescript outfit (again, without the hat). I’m a bit confused.

    Because the vast majority of the other patrons, excepting myself, are typical slobs while the gentleman I mentioned and myself are reasonably well dressed. I hope your confusion is now resolved.

    What brand of socks do you typically wear?

    Upr, outstanding classic grey suit to serve as - as it does today - a perfect palette for the colors and patterns you bring in the other items in your outfit.

    Those shoes are incredible - love the elegant way they are "perforated" (what is the right word for that?).

    Happily, the "sartorial emperor" is wearing something more than the Emperor in the fairy tale, "The Emperor's New Clothes" - that would not be a pleasant sight. :)

    You're welcome for the sharing.

    My sock drawer contains a variety of brands, usually determined by what I can find on sale. Today's socks are a brand called Punto, which I occasionally find at my local discounter at a reasonable price.

    I think that perforated described the ornamentation correctly, though I think the term "broguing" is the optimal term for decorative patterns of perforations on shoes.

    The suit does provide the perfect backdrop for more colorful accessories, of which I have more than a few, hence its purchase.
