I'm really enjoying quite a lot of the pieces to (objectively of course) but some of the fittings aren't fantastic; even smalls can come up quite large and boxy, you've got to pick and choose your pieces. My shoes are pretty amazing if I do say so myself.

Snap. In some ways I'm enjoying making the most of my Mac or my Duffle Coat, but at the same time I've just started buying some summer clothes: Farah pastel pink and blue striped shirt, and a Zara jumper that's basically identical to the Damien one at Reiss, and I can't help but think this jinxed the weather. And they look ridiculously bright, too.

Zara sizing has to be weirder though, considering mostly all their jumpers begin at size medium (which is between a small and a medium in reality). I wish all shops would take a note from Oi Polloi and include all the dimensions of the item. It would make the buying process so much easier.

I second Reiss sizes being wrong. I'm 6'1" and 13 stone, and all my Reiss items have to be in a small.

Navy Double Breasted Cotton Blazer (H and M)
Skinny dark wash indigo jeans with small turn up (Topman)
Brown belt (H and M)
Brown Brogue Boots (Hudson)
I had the joy of having a few pre-teen girls today tell me that I looked "gay". Is it just me who has to put up with this ignorance?!
I give up...

Why were you talking to the jail-bait? The outfit doesn't seem 'gay' at all. I actually got the opposite comments from a young group of chav girls walking home a few months back. And our outfits weren't too dissimilar (apart from the v-neck). Perhaps it was the v-neck? Apparently showing a bit of chest if you're a bloke is a sexual sign you're out of the closet.

Haha, my problem is I'm quite a slender, effeminate looking gent anyway. I could wear bike leathers and ride a harley and still look like a girl.

@Nath lol yes mate I do..... I'm not wearing cuffed drop-croth chinos, a scoop neck T and esparbrilles, ergo I'm a homosexual!
Fitted white shirt
Tailored slim dark brown-grey trousers
Dark brown wingtips
Dark brown belt
Slim grey tweed blazer (I can still get away with it in this weather!)
White pocket square
Look fairly dapper, even if I do say so myself! Got told today I'm the best-dressed man in my office

It's pissing it down in Sussex, so somewhat restricted in my sartorial choices today:
Brown military boots (old pair, sadly I left my Grenson Freds at home in hope of better weather. Optimistic.)
Indigo skinnies - Nudie Grim Tim
White t-shirt - Gap
Light blue denim shirt - Topman
Beige DB mac - Jasper Conran
Brown leather messenger bag - Ashwood
And most essentially:
Large navy umbrella - Uniqlo
Not bad for a day when lots of coursemates resorted to pack-a-macs, the dreaded Superdry jacket or, in one case, a binbag.

It was your sailor blazer Nath
There is no ignorance in this game either; you like what you like.
For the past couple of days, I've been super-prep, wearing my quiffy side parting, chinos and navy cricket jumper with oxford shirts in varying colours - with the collars popped, Gant/Michael Bastian style. Remarkably, nobody's commented on this at all. Either it is unanimously approved of or I look so ridiculous it doesn't bear thinking about. Thoughts?
