In that case, you may want to try soaking with White-brite. It's a little more on the dangerous industrial chemical end of things, but it's effective. Also the only stuff I've ever found that can actually remove dye transfer stains, even for colors, though it will lighten them a bit if you're not careful.
Take the old shirt, soak it overnight in a strong concentration of oxi-clean and hot water. Then wash it normally. Odds are, it won't look so dingy afterwards.
Historically there was a button behind the opposite label, not another buttonhole.
Khaki or olive chinos, brown or olive wool trousers, cords in any of those colors. I'd skip the gray, gray and light tan strikes me as a really awkward combo. Anything with a blue or white ground would work for the shirt. Just pick the pants you like with the shoes, and unless they're navy, odds are the navy blazer will work just fine. A navy blazer will also work with just about any reasonable shirt/tie combo you could imagine.
Far more disturbing to me, and interesting, is that there's a Senate hearing room in one of the office buildings with the same type of sign. There's a door up there with a big sign, in all caps, saying "NOT THE CLOAKROOM" (the cloakroom is the antechamber Senators use to go in and out of hearings). I always wondered how many Senators stumbling into some poor staffer's office, janitorial closet, or whatever the hell that room is it takes to get a sign like that. I always...
Barbancourt 8 here. No fussing around with juices!
Yes. They would be a full size too big.Seriously dude, why is this a question? Don't buy shoes that aren't your size. Badly fitting shoes are a surefire recipe for pain.
Looks great to me. It's not a sedate look by any means, but it's very well composed. SF's attitude on dark pants might get you a little blowback, but I've never really agreed with that one anyway.
Blending somewhat isn't the worst thing in the world. Summer is a time for lower contrast looks (especially if you're throwing a light colored jacket in the mix), because the increased light increases contrast as is- that's why dark, contrasty winter looks come off as much more severe in sun, and why night time dress is starker- you need greater contrast in elements in the dimmer light to keep things distinct.I'm a firm believer in the idea that a tie should be darker than...
Wear your jeans how you would normally wear them. If that involves cuffs, cuff. If not, don't. And yeah, I think that combo works well enough. Not my favorite, but they're not dramatically too formal or anything like that.
