If you swapped the cardigan for a navy linen waistcoat, and swapped either shirt or trousers for a solid pair this would work well as a fun spring look (although I have to say these are the ugliest spectators I've seen ).

Too busy to my eyes.

I'm sure there's probably some rule about not matching shoes to tie, but I like this look so don't care

Pretty good.

I have a similar new suit with blue lines in it and wondered if you ever have trouble with shirt colors other than blue or containing blue? If you have some other pictures with different colored shirts I would like to see them. Looks good by the way.

Thanks,
Randy

Randy:

I have only worn this suit with white and blue shirts. I think this very shirt 90% of the time. You could go solid white or solid blue. You could also probably bring in a different color, like maybe a pink.

I'll have to let you know, or post a pic, as I plan to try the pink.

Thanks,

Ties with jeans rarely look good. If you've got very dressy perfect fitting dark jeans you can just about get away with it, with a relatively casual top half, but even if the jeanss were more dressy, the top half is just too close to formal dress for it to work.
If you must mix ties with jeans go for a wool or knit tie.


Yeah the jeans are not that wide, the low camera angle and just being pressed makes below the knee look "dad jean", but I agree with your critique MoK and understand now about just a tie too - too incongrouos.

Thanks for your advice!

I think you owe it to the Forum to add the Fred hair style, it would really nail the look!

Is the chap in the background part of the lighting crew? If so, that's some serious SF photography!

"I'm sure there's probably some rule about not matching shoes to tie, but I like this look so don't care "

I too wondered about that rule of matching tie and shoes. I am having a hard enough time trying to match with out being too "matchy, matchy" as someone criticized.

A lot of the fits posted are average - not average as in bad (well, there are some bad ones ... lol) ... but just what you would expect from people - and in many cases, we've seen them in better fits. I think Mike and Orgetorix were the ones who came close to topping the best I've seen from them.

Fred simply crushed it.

[flame suit on]

ps - Fred, who are the scoundrels in the background? lol.

Lack of critique on my fit has me a little self conscious(no troll).

Yes, I know it's only been an hour 30mins since I put it up.

i think the sechs/beej comment regarding the wife prob creeped some peeps out, not so cool or respecful. also not to be too much of an sf mob mentality whore but jab, nautica, kc wont get you much love, im kinda surprissed no one snarked you out. but concidering your join date i assume you know that.

enough about that though on to the clothes. as i always say im a noob, certainly no expert. i looks ok, not amazing. the tie knot is eating the collar though, the jacket seems a bit large and grey pants and jacket that arent a suit is odd. you need to provide some contrast between the sc and the trousers. cheers, sorry if that was a bit harsh

The 'sechs/beej' comment was just goofing.(thought it was obvious)
The Nautica/KC stuff I know gets little love and I too expected snarks. However, That's why I wrote "poor man's version".
Thanks for review of fit. Collar is outta whack. Gonna go sans tie or try diff shirt. Will post pics if I change.
Will leave creepy sechs jokes out of future posts.
