I don't get the ivory part. Is it just a warm counterpoint to all the blue?
Its the plainest option. The suit itself is the center of the attention, all the other accessories should be quiet to provide counterbalance. I chose silk as opposed to linen because the slubby shantung tie is "dry", the cash/silk suit is a "medium wet" so I thought the PS should be "glossy".
I can't think of anything funny or special to commemorate my 10,000th post, so I'm just going to mark it with a thank you to everyone who I have learned so much from. Hopefully, a great fit too for a gorgeous spring day in NY:
Welcome to the thread - and thanks for the namecheck Tie might be a little wider with that jacket, and the shirt is kind of meh... the shoes should definitely be upgraded, but Ive seen much worse first posts, so you can do it!!! Also, a closer detail shot would help with the shirt/tie/jacket/ps combo critique as well.
Thanks Spoo! Got a wider tie today per your suggestion, hope it's better. Are my pants too short? They looked pretty good with other shoes, but with these...meh. Shoes? Yay or nay? Checking out everyone's posts makes me want a patterned jacket. Argh! Blazer: Chaps & Twigs Shirt: American Eagle Tie: Italian Pure Silk Pants: Volcom Chino Shoes: Unknown
