Funeral Style, Again

Chilly yesterday so I dug out a medium-weight Brooks suit and went for it. The full-bore Ivy look would probably require a buttondown collar; however, the inherently casual nature of the collar just seems wrong for solemn occasions.

The funeral was for this man.

The skinny: Brooks Brothers 1818 sack suit (thrift shop); Lands End pinpoint non-iron straight collar (overstocks); vintage Brooks tie (thrift shop); Drake's pocket square from Sierra Trading Post; the ubiquitous Allen-Edmonds Park Avenue on the feet (eBay); socks from Lands End

Those Allen-Edmonds Park Avenue's look brilliant. Do they come in brown?
