Stripes on stripes

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I am a fervent advocate of wearing stripes on stripes. I love this look:

Ditto. I wore an almost identical ensemble last week, but with no contrast collar and a small weave yellow tie.

People didn't seem to think the stripe combination was over the top, which suprised me.

Tough to do it right, but it can be done.

As long as it is balanced, it should work fine. If you added a striped tie to that outfit, then it would probably be too much, and out of balance.

No way. He looks like a bad ass like that. If he put on a bowtie he would look like a dork. It would totally change the message the outfit is sending.

His cuffs should be white. Like Bond says, "As long as the collars and cuff match"

His pants are too much, not elegant or sublime. In England, this might be acceptable business wear. Too flashy unless you are in a very artistic field. A soft chalk stripe would be ideal.

I think stripes on stripes is great.

I'd say his collar should be striped...

Yes, it's less ostentatious. In fact, I just order a light red stripe on white by Anna Matuozzo, all stipe no contrasting collor cuff. As long as the collar matches the cuff still applies

I agree. I think the above ensemble would benefit from a solid tie, of the same color. One or two other colors also might work.

Yes, I personally would wear a solid tie with this look, as it's getting a bit too busy. Your dress would become the topic of conversation versus the business at hand. I'd go solid Navy or dark crimson.

Actually, a white collar with self cuffs is a classic look. On some contrast collar shirts -- perhaps most -- I think it looks better.

-- Just my preference. Bond was just a joke from DAF. referring to women and hair color
