    Noteworthy: layering doesn't always have to start with the lightest layer. Here, a Shetland under a knit rugby jersey works just as well.

    How’s the fit if you don’t plan on wearing it as an undershirt, but more like a normal sweater?

    @Palmer Woodrow—The Wallace & Barnes shetlands run big. I’m wearing a small. Don’t even bother with the original J.Press Shaggy Dog shetlands…even in a small, I’m swimming in one. I have yet to try on a York St. shetland but I imagine the fit would be much slimmer.

    How does the W&B shetland fit compare to J. Press (or York St.)?

    @Laurel—I’m wearing an undershirt…itch-free.

    Didn’t that itch?

    @TopShelfTags—Rugby is the brand.

    are Rugby jeans a brand or a style/cut?

    Fred, what exactly are you wearing on your right hand? Can we get a close up/details on the ring?

    Fred, this is the perfect idea of casual layering. Love the idea of mixing up the usual. The denim draws the eye and adds balance. Love the NB hikers. Well done sir!

    I am considering Randolph for my next purchase of sunglasses? Are yours the bayonet temple? I will not be able to try them on before I purchase,  and I am wondering if they are comfortable.
