Style for first sweater? - Page 3

post #31 of 39
gray is a nice neutral palette to throw some pizazz on top of, a gray/gray combo will usually look really boring unless maybe the shirt has a much different shade of gray to it and maybe some kind of pattern (like a floral or paisley) so that it peeks out a bit over the sweater

I think wearing a sweater with a buttondown collar (or any collar really) with a tie underneath is quite possibly the nerdiest/dorkiest look anyone could possibly wear. I think that look should be reserved only for old guys with big guts.

So are you suggesting a t-shirt?

NO DUDE. Wear a button-down shirt under a V-neck sweater. Absolutely classic look.

Oh well. Guess the t-shirt and tie under a v-neck sweater doesn't work.

No, I'm suggesting you ditch the tie when wearing a sweater. A buttondown under a sweater is fine (though, personally I don't wear buttondowns), but wearing a tie under sweater makes you look like a huge nerd or an old man.

How about a checkered button down shirt underneath a v neck sweater (without tie)?
