Question gentleman. Would a french blue (i consider french blue deeper than the standard blue dress shirt right?) be ok to wear with a khaki suit for a summer wedding this weekend? I have not dressed festively in quite sometime. I would wear a berry pink tie with green and orange medallions. Can send a pic out tomorrow but I wanted input just based on principal.

If that's the case, why are they still sold by some brands? Two of them ended up in my closet. Now I have to get rid off them... :-)

^ Not my fav, but passable, though sans tie, unless its a light beige - and even then, Im not so sure.

^ Spoo, I'll post a pic in natural light tomorrow. It will be a younger crowd so I wanted a bit more color without looking silly.

And get rid of that buggered pick stitching.

Also, I've somehow come to enjoy the silhouette of ventless recently.

The socks catch the eye here, but that's largely the pose. 99% of the time, you won't see them, and the 1% of the time that you do, it will just be a flash of bright colour, so I'm not concerned about their eye-catching nature in the photo.

Shirt up off the darker color in the tie. For instance, in this pic your shirt is paired off the lighter color of the tie. Allow the tie to be the lighter hue of the ensemble. The lighter shirt with the tie leaves you looking a little pale. Or, just stick to lighter ties in warmer weather and lighter color suiting, sport coats, etc. I like your sock color.

I like this. It's making me miss Sydney winter.

Many thanks, pal. I was talking of you with Cravate_Noire last week; hope that we can see one another again this year

I like striped shirts, myself. Usually, contrast collar shirts are also very helpful for such ties
