    Just started visiting your blog. Love it. I guess this look (shoes & belt) is okay because he is traveling? If we may offer our own critique, I vote for a sharp leather loafer and belt in a shade similar to his bag…

    I love the fact that something that was a major pain to me (like problems loading photos ) has helped me find a way to make the blog better.

    People have asked for photos to be a little bigger but I’m not a tech guy so I didn’t have an answer and my images didn’t seem that much smaller than other blogs but this was a big help – again thanks

    I will have to test run it a while to see if there are any side effects but hopefully i can continue with this

    I’m not a fan of the shoes though. They look like white hiking books.

    Absolutely agree. Simple, casual, earthy colours – he looks effortless. Love the jacket – is that linen?

    What is it about looking ‘effortless’ that is so appealing? Maybe because I admit that generally every day I spend way too long in choosing an outfit. Particularly shoes and earrings…. So I admire someone who looks like they just ‘threw something on’ and look good.

    I would also do a different shoe but the overall look is great for a hot summer day

    the size is bigger yes, but the image quality went down a notch, maybe two.

    Hopefully, you are not satisfied with this. I would not want to look at this quality everyday and think you are better than this. I hope you keep working on it.

    I was very satified with original size.

    yes i agree – the image somehow was enlarged in imageshack which made the quality go down -i will still be playing with it but I’m not crazy about having my photos floating out there on imageshack or flicker etc

    at least it got me through today

    I can’t see the photo – it has been block due to high band width. Any one else having this problem? I didn’t have any trouble with the smaller size.

    I’m not really diggin’ this look. Mainly it’s that I just don’t like white pants with a white shirt.

    I think this is a great casual summer look. I like that the wearer chose to wear complimentary hues and did not go for coordinated. I think if everything matched too closely, the belt, shoes, & bag, etc., it would appear to stodgy, not the effect he’s going for.

    By the way, this is an absolutely wonderful blog. I look forward to it everyday.

    Alice, I think you are right on with your effortless observation. This gent has what is called sprezatura, a studied carelessless. The ability to make the dfficult seem easy. There is a nonchalance in his style that, in my opinion, makes it elegant.

    He looks like he’s put a jacket over his cricket whites. No, I don’t like this look at all.

    shoes are suede tods competitions – they don’t make them anymore but you might be able to find them in their outlet stores.

    Always a fan of people wearing white. The shoes do look a bit awkward though.
