I think a white shirt wil look to bland and washed out combined with this light colored suit.
Also since it's a summer suit I think navy tie is to prefer before black.
As for shirts, solid light blue, perhaps a gingham white/purple or white/blue. Light lilac shirt would probably work as well.
Regarding tie,,,grenadine or knit, navy for example.

I like that suit, Holdfast. For ideas—see TTO today: blue shirt (somewhat "bluer" than you're wearing) and a navy tie.

 

Thanks to both of you I'll try something like this next time. Blue shirt with navy tie seems an across-the-board consensus for next combo to try with it.

 

(MrChris is right that white shirt really doesn't work against the colour of this suit, and I also am not personally much of a fan of black ties in summer)

Kappelan, awesome outfit man! Love that tie!

Sorry, it's not you then that I was thinking of. There is somebody here, however that it seem button stance is all they ever talk about. Button Stance has been mentioned in over 175 pages of posts however, but obviously not by you. My apologies.

I also meant blue stripes (wider than pencil stripes, otherwise it will be too white) and ginghams (!), btw, not just solid blue.

Nicer colours here! smile.gif

You know what would make this more Bruce Wayne? (Real answer: a white, pointed PS.)

As much as I most likely have many photos which would be apropos of the peacocking thread, the OP of that thread is someone who, in the past, has stated that the sight of my face made him physically ill. This, I take, as a significant disincentive to posting in his thread (even after his declaration that the source of his illness was my Van Dyke, a growth now removed from my face).

Hey, bris. Can we make nice here?

I'd say it's because we can see a lot of waistband as well as shirt and tie through the space the jacket presents to us at the bottom.
Still I think the outfit is very very nice, the jacket just has an unusual cut/closure.

Derek, I like the jacket and the classic combination of blues and whites.
Not too sure about the shoes and I'd show a bit less PS.

PS: Tell Mrs. Derek to burn that blanket! wink.gif

Indeed, I think it is hideous, sorry man, you seem to have great taste in general, but if I remember correctly you told me your wife bought it.
To me it looks like a fur coat a wife of a middle class Russian businesman would wear.
Are you into steal, oil or gas maybe?

I'm quite obviously a non-native English speaker, but it has quite some truth to it wink.gif
