Like the first pic. Not my choice but it goes together well. The second pic. I'd go with a navy blazer or brown cord jacket. I think you'll need a fedora and a violin case. Just kidding. Looks good, but if it was me I'd go with a 3 button jacket (not a fan of 2 buttons) although it does look well, and probably go with a gold and navy paisley pocket square
I find they dry with a whitish residue on them. Looking for a hard neutral polish myself.Currently wearing a pair of old pattern Loakes no longer available to buy. Must be 20 years old at least and still in good nick
I agree with you 100%, it's always gotta be a tie for me and the higher the opening gorge on the jacket, the better IMO. A lot of my mates wear DB suits but it's more of a winter thing; they don't look right open. Quite a few mates are going do the path of having a jacket only made and wearing them with complementary trousers, shirt and tie. Looks great if you can carry it off, sadly I don't have the figure to carry it off these days
They can look good but I would never wear one being a bit portly; I'd look like the station master seeing off the trains. A few of my frinds wear them but they are generally made of the same material their suits are made from. The biggest advice I can give is to stay away from the novelty ones.
