No on this one from Cravate's blog? (I think it's a white shirt anyway. If it isn't, pretend it is. I think the contrast still works.)

Here's one I posted. Naturally, I like it, though that doesn't mean you should:

There are also some good examples of tweed + white shirts on Downton Abbey. Just takes a very measured approach to color and contrast, IMO.


First one looks either pale grey or ecru to me? Either lessens the harsh contrast. Your look is clearly nice but I think would be even better with off-white. *shrug*

 

I do think that the presence of a waistcoat or jumper (something the above two pics have) lessens my quibble with the look to some degree, due to the simple practical fact of the intervening garment covering a large percentage of the shirt, diminishing the contrast.

 

As for the Downton looks, I think I'd prefer them all with tattersals instead of white shirts. However, I will allow that a club collar functions somewhat similarly to a BD collar in deformalising/sportifying the look, thus falling under my already stated exemption for white shirts if they're BDs. ;)

Think about making it a one-button to start off with. See if you like it that way. Chris can always add the second later.
I say this, of course, as a two-button jacket hater.

The plan is to do 3-roll-2, but I will probably take your advice and talk to Chris about it in a couple of weeks. Final fitting is then, only after which the button holes will be cut. Meticulous man, that Despos.

Thanks for comments on yesterday's suit. I've come to love my alterations lady - she does all the city police and state trooper uniforms - very precise. Helped me shorten most of my pants to minimal break and get jacket sleeve length right (I have long arms but a short torso). Business casual today - any critiques welcome

It's probably because they were "spoilered." The shoes are cool... but you know that.... icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
