If it does have the same effect in real life I wouldn't even wear it once or twice a year. lol

I have regretted ever buying this shirt, but I force myself to wear it once or twice a year.

HF — I think it could work, but the bow is a tad larger than I prefer.

Deets on tie? I'm wearing a pale blue shirt with a brown tie today too, but mine's more of a colour failure, I like yours...

Luftie, what's wrong with this particular shirt? Looks like a pale blue pow pattern.

you answered your question

Yesterday I put this jacket on for the pictures, today I'm officially wearing it as temperatures have calmed down a little tounge.gif

 

Tie failure I think... this brown is too saturated and shiny.

 

 

BTW, any suggestions on what shirt to wear with this tie? It always manages to look off somehow, perhaps I should burn it...

What's so bad about PoW pattern for shirts?
I have one similar to Luftviers, but with a thin navy colored overcheck, which I like quite alot.

I have always felt a little uneasy about PoW check on shirting. It just seems like it should be for suiting alone. But I don't know that this is any more than an entirely subjective feeling.

I partially agree, but if it's a subtle color/pattern mix that almost looks like a plain shirt from a distance then I think it can be nice. Mostly for more casual occasions.

^^ interesting points on PoW pattern shirts. Can anybody further expand on this. I have one myself and wear it with or w/o SC. If I get smack next time I wear it, at least I know why. Thanks

I think this is somewhat correct. Given that the shirt you mention has shades of the same color in the overlay. However, in lufty's case, the pink overlay makes things different. It strikes me as a half-ass tattersall and the color combination makes it awkwardly standout/creates confusion within the outfit.

Because patterned shirts are considered more casual in the hierarchy of formality, coupled with the fact that PoW is an objectively loud standalone pattern, I think it would work best without a SC. And certainly better without a tie. That said, a pencil stripe shirt or even Bengal stripe is a much better alternative for casual, sans tie or SC look, IMHO.

**WARNING: FITTING-STAGE SUIT. 70% COMPLETE. NOT PRESSED**

The feedback thread for in-progress garments seems a little light on feedback recently, so I thought I'd ask you lot for your thoughts

Just returned from my fitting at Graham Browne in London. I have requested a number of adjustments (specifically, the shape of the waist; the thighs and sleeves to remove some of the fullness; the seat of the trousers to have them fall more neatly. I don't think that's a true button pull, but then I am taking a lot of headache pills today), but as this is SF, I'll invite interested parties to offer their own (no nitpicks) and I can bring them up with the tailors when I visit them again soon

The photographs don't serve the faille wool material very well and my rudimentary Photoshopping couldn't bring them to life either (it's an admittedly harshly lit room), but I think the colour is almost accurate, in both cases:
