⇧ as you noted, just the jacket. That shirt reminds me - in OCBD form - of what all the "factory outlet" bins where full of in the '90s. "Look, I can get a $90 Ralph shirt for $20 bucks - back up the truck." I have a relative who shops that way - all brand name stuff from the outlets. IMO, he always ends up with the odd color or cut or style or fit or something. And since he loads up on the really inexpensive stuff, you'll see five versions of the same "great value" thing in his wardrobe. He's all Polo, BB and designer names and it, again IMO, doesn't work.

Not the unnamed relative to whom you refer, but somewhat guilty as charged, none the less! Uh0Oh. ;)

The jacket looks kinda suit-y and the knot seems out of proportion with the collar size, but no objection to the dark'ish shirt with the swell grenadine. Paste this on a younger guy who hits the clubs early ditching the tie and opening the collar by nine. Yeah, that's the ticket. One liver-spotted thumbs up. Miss the days when I used to get up to get down,
