    After frequenting this blog for close to a year, who would have thought I’d be making a comment on one the more unassuming looks. A pretty solid look none the less. You mentioned you had your denims altered, was it the length you had taken in? I find shortening the lengths loses the “finishing” on the hem. Whats your view?

    I’m fond of gingham, although the checks on your shirt are a bit too big. How do you feel about red gingham on most complexions? I’m considering this one from J. Press: http://www.jpressonline.com/dress_shirts_patterned_detail.php?id=1045REDM

    Thanks, Mr. Castleberry.

    Hiya Fred, a couple of things I would like to ask if I may, As I am newish to your blog I don’t know what you do for a living but would be intersted to know and secondly as a great people watcher when I see people that dress well I often wonder where they live and what their houses/apartments look like have you ever posted any pictures of your home ? It would be fun to see what style you have. Thanks

    @NWR—These jeans are 501s that I had altered at Sid Mashburn when I bought them.  The indigo wash jean is a great dark jean substitute for selvedge come summer.

    @Laguna Beach Fogey—Gingham is a quintessential summer fabric. It’s unfortunate you’ve banned it from your wardrobe.  These particular shoes are made by Allen Edmonds, so they are American.  I’d also challenge you to attempt the leather dress shoe sans sock and see what you think.

    @Nate & Tito—This shirt is made by Polo Ralph Lauren.

    Solid look, Fred. Who is the denim by?

    Awesome! Well done, FEC.

    I’m not a fan of gingham in any form, but this looks good on you.

    Your hairstyle is to die for.

    I avoid wearing dress shoes without socks, but the shoes in the picture look quite light-weight, and possibly Italian-made, so I think it works.

    The lens flare matches your watch… but yes, I do like this look. It is one of the least in-your-face things on this site.

    I gotta know who makes this shirt!

    Great look! The only issue I have finding a gingham Shirt in fun bright colors other than blue is that they are hard to come by to fit my long torso and monkey arms. I would like to have my shirts reach my wrist when un-rolled.
