hahah I'm in a much smaller city than NYC. Harry Rosen had an Armani trouser in almost exactly what I was looking for. That's where I got the idea for this. But that was last summer and Armani no longer mills that fabric. Very similar to the jacket I posted. Still unsure if a gingham suit is going to be garish or not. In my head its a cool idea with a super tonally matched tie and white shirt. Don't see a lot of them out there which is both exactly why I think it would be...
But is a gingham suit going to be 'out of fashion'? There would be no point in spending the money if its 'out of fashion'. I respect the fact that its not the 'in fashion' pattern right now. All of the MTM fabrics that I've liked have been marked as jacket fabrics. I was told the manufacturers are reluctant to fabricate suits out of those if they will even consider it. Plus jacket fabrics don't wear as well when made into pants.
I can find sport coats that are almost perfect for the look I want, but nothing in a suit.   The Tom Ford construction isn't for me, but I love the fabrics that they have.
Most of those suggestions are ~1k, and I'd like to try to stick to a little more luxurious of an item. 2-3k is kinda where I'm looking. Less fashion oriented, more of like an old school British look.
I'm on the look for a grey/charcoal gingham suit with a hint of a blue. Hard thing to find, I know, but I was hoping I could browse the internet to look at any kind of gingham suit to get a bit of an idea. There seems to be nothing out there. Why is this? Have gingham suits completely gone out of fashion? (Albeit they were never really IN style...) I thought with how fashionable checks are right now, gingham suits would start popping up all over the place. Any body have...
Part of the reason why the guy as macy's suggested a navy suit is because navy is a great base colour for almost any shirt. Light or dark shirts work, but not too close in shade or tone. Blue on blue is really in this season, so its definitely 'OK' to weak the darker shirt with the suit. But so would a light grey. Both navy and grey are basic colours, so you can mix and match almost any shirt (like the white one) with either suit.
How far does the rule of 'no navy and black together' go? I have a navy chalkstripe suit and got a green/black/caramel pocket square to go with a handful of shirts. The green and brown match really well, but im worried that the black background to the colour throws the whole thing off. Is this just me worrying about nothing or will it actually destroy the look?
I would go with no tie to this lunch. You are seeing him in an informal setting, but are respecting what he does and the requirements for his attire. Personally, i like the grey shirt with no vest and would suggest a colourful pocket square as well.
Is there any knowlege of which stores will carry eidos as it moves forward? Im in edmonton and dying to see it!
