You need to leave the bottom button of your jacket unfastened.   For the tie, go darker burgundy than the one you pictured, or a dark navy with a small repeating pattern as a safe choice, e.g. SuitSupply ref D151229.
I recently asked if anyone had experience of Hugh and Crye shirts, and there was no response, so I bit the bullet and went for it, so here is a mini review. This is really part 1, and I'll try and do a part 2 after I've worn the shirt a few times. Apologies in advance for the lack of photography skills, and for my scruffy jeans (working from home today).https://www.hughandcrye.com/ BackgroundI am UK-based, and in the past have worn TM Lewin John Francomb Fully Fitted or...
Has anyone tried Hugh and Crye shirts? They have a different approach to sizing, based on a matrix, as seen here: http://www.hughandcrye.com/pages/fit   I'd be interested in hearing feedback on both size and quality.   For reference, my current favourite shirts are Kamakura New York Slims, and I'm not looking to supplant them as my shirts of choice, but would like another choice.   Thanks.

My three shirts are below, and sadly I don't think any are keepers. Cream OCBD (I just don't suit cream), White Stripe, Fine Stripe with white collars (would have worn if double-cuff!).

If your Dad likes Chimay tell him to hunt out some Orval, similar but better IMHO.
Kamakura would fall into that price range as well.
Barely worn Made in Spain Magnanni shoes. Selling for £40 / $60 plus shipping. Shipping to be £5 UK, £20 USA (unless you can help me find a better price!).
