I think the pink shirt w/ the white collar without the tie looked pretty nice with the seersucker. I would agree a ocbd or solid shirt of some ilk would be better in theory but I thought it looked pretty good. what was missing was a PS of some kind.
Contrast collars can work in the right circumstances, see Holdfast and his nice contrast collar shirts. I think they have a bit of a stigma especially in the US but I think they can be pretty snazzy if done right.
Orgetorix, that is a great suit and tie combo! very nice! Looks like you have lost some weight too, you are looking great sir !
Finally, in reference to my fit today. What can I wear this tie with? Any help would be nice as I like the pattern of it. Thanks!
