How colors work together and the like.

Any suggestions?

OMG, I forgot that about a week ago one morning at my train station I say this older dude, like 5'4" long grey thinning hair and a beard in a wool mini skirt!

I admit it was morning but no one seemed to even notice, his legs were hairy too...

I admit that a washed out cheap polo shirt is a bad choice and an expensively made (good construction, hand finishing) one in a high count cotton, merino wool or even cashmere is a better choice. Make sure the collar is large and substantial enough to stay under your jacket collar.

Additionally, this is a look with a tradition, it isnt "just" contemporary.

This might be of interest to you:

And as texas-jack said, what if the DB black suit is custom or from a sumptuous ready to wear manufacturer?


Regarding the polos, I just don't like it with a suit! Maybe (maybe) with a blazer and odd pants. Just no suit.

Regarding the thrift suit, if you miraculously run into an extraodinary suit in great condition, then maybe.. But I haven't had any luck in this department!

You might find a KB, Oxxford, whatever your go is.. But faded black suits from thrift shops (and they are invariably faded) just look bad. No brand will save you from it.

On the other hand, I have seen many, many thrift black DB's (including this forum) and it just screams CHEAP or MY DAD (for those younger members .)

I hadnt considered that actually. Never have bought a suit at a thrift store and fading is one of those unforeseeable contingencies. No one wants a faded suit though, yuck.

Does that Versace shirt come with its own batteries or are they extra?

You should never wear a jacket in the office, with or without french cuffs. Only freaks do that, unless the heating is out of service.

I only use silk knots for my FC's. I do however, wear FC's without tie all the time, but do wear with jacket, which I do wear in the office for unpleasant meetings and negotiations (avec or sans tie).

I wear FC's with jeans and (sometimes) jacket on Fridays, depending on mood / weather / expected workload and meetings.

There is no one at my office with a rulebook to issue style citations, and frankly, if I can look in the mirror and smile and not feel like I've tried too hard to make things work, then I'm adequately (maybe even properly) dressed.
