Serious question.

Seriously, but my comments were w.r.t. navy suits and my ability to combine them with shirts and ties

MC has posted lots of pics of blue clothes, here are my comments regarding how the diff shirt/ties combos look to me. Comments are given without any malice, please feel free to disagree


Ok, but great ? Not really
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Pic is great, dude looks great, doesnt hurt that he is slim and good looking. Combo is nothing special
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Again, OK, not great, a little too stripey for me
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
[/SPOILER]

Color combo wise best of the lot

Is Mr. Nay wearing navy ? Looks like charcoal to me. Anyways, I would swap the shirt for light blue, tie looks good

"that's right, you heard me correctly. I OWN you"

[/SPOILER]

Fan of yfyf but rare miss from him. Nothing objectionable or anything but def not up to his high standards
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
[/SPOILER]

Tie looks good, but I expect even better from the master himself. Also the suit seems to be more grey than blue
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Too blue
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Suit looks like charcoal rather than navy
[SPOILER]


Again, I am a fan of NOBD, but his tie is this case is a miss IMO
[SPOILER]


Suit looks great, black tie doesnt work for me
[SPOILER]


Is Vox wearing navy ? Looks like charcoal black on my screen.
[SPOILER]

Good pic, tie doesnt look great. Maybe a burgundy or purple knit would look better

^^ Speaking of ties to wear with navy, I am thinking of getting this tie to wear with a white shirt and plain navy suit. Thoughts ...

Great post, Skinny. I looked in my closet and found three navy jackets, two pairs of cords, and several sweaters. Oh, and a bunch of shirts. aj, I'd vote "no" on that tie. Too gray (on my monitor). Darker blues and black are good, but then I'd look for some color.

I just want to point out that the intention of the pictures posted was to show the variety of blues available besides just navy, as well as a variety of skin tones... I paid no attention to tie+shirt combos or even the general fit that much. Just fabric/texture and color.

PS - thank god for the spoiler tag, that was so much easier to work through.

I just find it hard to believe that after all the time you've been on here and all the style blogs you visit, you can't find a blue suit combo that you like.

We'll just agree to disagree on that. :^)

^^ no problem, thats just my opinion. Anyways, as I said before, my reservations are restricted to navy suits. I like navy and dark blue is other clothes. Navy SC s very versatile, I like navy odd trousers, navy V neck sweater, plain navy tie etc.

So what shirt and tie combos do you think work for navy SCs that don't work for navy suits?
