He would look more interesting with brown shoes and a less matchy-matchy, more interesting tie. It's simply more interesting, yet still works, without being boring as hell. As it is, the gentleman has on the most uninteresting shoes and tie imaginable on. He is Generic Man.

More time spent on proper fit, less time spent on fun socks and pocket square peacocks. That blue on blue is not boring.

Who mentioned socks or pocket squares?

 

Blue on blue, especially that blue on blue is incredibly boring.

Socks and squares and ties are often used to bring in the color and contrast, which you have said make an "outfit" more stylish. But too often loud colors and contrasts are used to distract from the fact that everything does not fit as it should.

I hate to break it to you fellas, but none of you is talking about style. You're talking about stuff and rules and whatnot.

Very true. How about this, do you think the fit Kaplan posted is stylish or is it rather pedestrian?

post #32710 of 78717
Ant Honey, I said it earlier on and will say it again. I think Kaplan is very stylish, not garish, nor fashionable. The black shoes are the correct choice.
In fact I personally think he is possibly more stylish in his blue and white than the Sean Connery you choose to depict in your avatar, who would typically be dressed in black and white only, complete with black shoes.

addendum: As sugarbutch says, it is about style, in other words, how he carries or wears his clothes, how they fit him, how relaxed and comfortable he appears in them, not how bright his PS or tie is, or how many patterns or colours there might be. Boring, but a class act to follow, I bet you cannot follow!!

Ant Honey, please post a picture of yours which shows what you think is stylish, thanks.

Here are the results.
Suit, shirt & tie - BB
Cufflinks - Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
Shoes - Finsbury, Paris

This is great all over! I will steal this fit as I have very similar items in the closet. Thanks!

Ant Honey: Yes, I think Kaplan looks stylish. Might he also look stylish with brown shoes and a different tie? I have no doubt that he would. I also think Tirailleur looks stylish most of the time, but there's not much which objectively connects these two men and their preferred corners of MC. This talk of style gets into the Potter Stewart zone fairly quickly...

Sorry, I am not 100% sure what you want to tell me, my English vocabulary is too bad.
You mean you wore a dress pant with belt loops you felt the need to fill with ... a belt?
