For an interview, solid white or light blue shirt. I usually wear a burgondy tie with a small repeating pattern in blue or white.
I did, but I am still looking so I posted it again. Is that against the rules?
color combination is fine, but something about the texture of the tie and the texture of the shirt together rubs me the wrong way.
Looking for a black label suit or similarly cut slim fitting suit. Prefer a conservative color (navy or charcoal), but would consider grey or some patterns. Pics and measurements help a lot.
It may have been said, but Obama was magna cum laude at Harvard.

Looking for stuff in a solid blue, grey, or charcoal - but would consider others (particularly conservative stripes). Please let me know.
I have shirts from Carl in that price range as well as some in a higher range. I am quite pleased with them. It is true that the fabric quality goes up substantially with an increase in cost, but what is nice about Carl is that the construction quality on my cheapest shirt from him is just as high as my most expensive.
