Nah, not with a pane of this width, which is almost a solid or neutral. I would go for a more densely striped shirt, though and definitely not a tattersall or anything having anything horizontal going on. Could probably even pair with a paisley tie, but that might be too much.
Highly recommend a bottle of Lexol ($5-6) and a tin of Kiwi ($2) and you are good to go. Combine them with a rag and a horsehair brush ($10) and you have the start of a shoe shine kit that will last you for years. +1 on this for a college kid. You don't need to be spending money on (or even learning about) obscure and expensive shoe polish. Meltonian is a creme (cream?) and works fine. Cremes have more luster and less shine than wax-based polishes such as Kiwi, but...
I join in the comment about the width on the buttons. The top two look like they are going fall right on your 'nips. Something odd about their placement. I don't see anything wrong it being Navy--may not be unique enough for the SF crowd but has served the other 99.99999999% of the population very well over the years. Overall, I am not thrilled with the appearance. Sorry.
I am going to buck the trend toward the "button-down" responses and endorse your idea of a spread.
Great movie. Loved the gaggle of ghouls that played Micky's Mom and sisters. I am sure the Mom was a professional but those sisters were definitely cast from locals, IMO. I also read that Wahlberg has said that as he was doing his last six (yes, 6) movies, he was secretely preparing for this one, getting to the gym for a three-hour workout before he was due on set so he could be as realistic as possible. And Bale never ceases to amaze, even though he is kind of a nut...
I am first recommending books by Martin Booth, a prolific (if late bloomer) British writer who died in 2004 at the age of 59. His work came to light recently with the release of "The American" with George Clooney, based on his book "A Very Private Gentleman." The book is great. I then moved on to "The Industry of Souls" which was short-listed for the Booker prize, and then cruised through several works based upon Booth's upbringing in Hong Kong and deep familiarity with...
PM sent on Polo suit.
Can the charcoal shirt if you must wear a tie, period. Go with a white shirt and a dressy tie that pairs well with a black suit. A silver tie is an option, but it can make you look like a movie star who eschews "black tie" in the true formal sense at the Oscars. I have some patterned ties on black background and they go fine with my black suit. I wear it to "black tie optional events" which, where I live, means a green checked sport coat, yellow shirt and tassel...
If anything, the width of the knot appears to be a little big for the dimensions of the collar as the collar is not a full spread and the points are not that long. To my eye, the knot appears to be straining against the collar. I can't see going any bigger.
You are not heading in the right direction, young man. What you are doing is unheard of and it will put a strain on your young system. Also, even if you gain a lot of body fat, you can't turn fat into muscle, so nix that idea. Fat and muscle are two different types of tissue. Talk this over with your doctor, or, better yet, see a nutrionist.
