Having difficulty matching these shirts - Page 2

I too would, in most circumstances, do away with the tie, but the collar looks somewhat empty without, being that it also has removable collar stays, which I find somewhat odd to say the least, on a linen shirt.

Adding my 2 cents, all the shirts would go great with jeans. Classic

Everyone suggests jeans, but I am still unsure what type people mean, as I asked before, the low rise type, or pleated type (i.e. Fendi and Prada). and also Dark or Light, Distressed a little or flawless, and should I tuck the shirt or not?

I would think any pair of flat-front blue jeans with some character (rips, fading, what have you) would look fine. Leave shirts untucked.

IMO, flat front, faded regular fit jeans with the shirt untucked. These will show off the shirt and not the jeans. Depending on where I was going, and the temperature, I would even suggest a navy suit jacket or blazer. Classic

Okay, will try it.

Definitely great with blue or black jeans- even some of the other colors like khaki that Zegna and Loro Piana are selling this season. Dunno about the pleats, though...Flat fronts are probably a better bet. And I wouldn't do the distressed, unless you (like me, frequently ) are trying to look younger than you are.

Yea, I was having second thoughts about wearing distressed jeans. Would you say untucked aswell Steve?
post #24 of 35
Absolutely, untucked. I think they're great shirts. In fact I covet the Zegna .

I like the second shirt. But then I would have chosen a more colorful tie to add a bit of variety to an otherwise drab ensemble. Albeit the tie is also Versace but perhaps one their Baroque pieces would be more suited. The first shirt could be suited for a pair of slim pintriped/chalkstriped trousers. The third one as well to add a bit of dichotomy.

1- I would possibly agree with you 2- No, pehaps the cut is a little odd, but when worn it does not look like a womans shirt. 2- It is NOT denim. It is a cotton and linen blend
2- for women or gay if you prefer 3- thread of sewing are like jeans and color is too dark

Ernest, I do not mind the fact that you are honest i.e. the comment about the first shirt, but if you are going to give uneducated inferences, because you cannot see it properly, please do not. Note the fact that you thought a blue and white striped shirt was denim. Moreover, if you were being sincere about the second shirt, I truly wonder how few linen shirts you have seen in your life.
I do not like linen = better take a super 120 cotton shirt or a polo.

Depends on the weight of the suit.  If it is linen, cotton or tropical weight wool (no more that 9 ounce, and crepe would be ideal) or a light wool/silk or cotton/linen blend, the combination should be fine.   In any case, I would nix the tie, or wear it very loosely.  Linen shirts generally look better a little dressed down.
Linen means hot weather and casual Hot weather and casual means NO black NO tie Tie with linen = ridiculious

It can be done if one has enough innovation to pull it off.

As far as jeans go, here are my suggestions: I would stay away from pleated. My suggestion would be something in a medium low rise (nothing extreme), dark wash with light fading (slight distressing, but no huge rips or patches), and slim-cut with maybe a slight boot-fit. Something along the lines of Helmut Lang would be ideal. That white or cream Versace shirt is gorgeous, (if you decide against it I'd be happy to take it off your hands ). I would pair that with the aforementioned jeans. I can't tell if the shirt tails are long on it, but if they are I would recommend tucking the shirt in loosely. The shirt is sleek and minimalistic, so I would recommend slim, dark, Helmut Lang-style jeans to match. As far as the Zegna shirt goes, try cream-colored linen/cotton flat-front slacks worn with brown suede buckle loafers (in the style of Ferragamo, Gucci, or Bruno Magli) with the shirt tucked in. Or, try a pair of cream 100% linen looser-fitting drawstring slacks worn with brown leather slide-style sandals and with the shirt untucked. I am drawing a blank with the blue Versace shirt. It has some western-style touches (the decorative stitching along the collar edges) so perhaps you could tie that in somehow.
