I don't know that I like bengal stripes with any striped suit, honestly. Especially not purple stripes. I think it would work if the bengal stripes were smaller in scale, but it still wouldnt be as good as a solid shirt.

Agree with you. A solid shirt would be much nicer.

I'm pretty sure that all of Kent Wang's knit ties are offered in both configurations.

apologies. it sort of looked like the jacket and pants weren't a suit, but an odd matching combo.

i really want to like this one but the like beige pants look like they clash a bit. a different, darker color might work better there.

I believe a solid blue shirt may have been a better choice. MadMen helped me appreciate the sensual curve of the 3 button jacket lapels as they melt in to the jacket's quarters when only the middle button is buttoned....though I may never wear a 3 button jacket myself, mine eyes hath been opened.

Sorry for the crappy picture but I think I finally got a mid-grey plaid suit that works for me. Detail picture has texture and fabric. Will try to get a better picture next time I wear it. Sleeves are a touch short.

I don't think it is too busy. I like an active combination at times. I think in person, instead of a photo view, the violet striped shirt would have flair. I really like the suit.
I would probably try to subtly see the details of what you were wearing if I encountered you in public. By that I mean some outfits you see and you immediately know what the items are and it requires no further thought. Not that it is a bad outfit, just a bit predictable. This is not predictable but not garish or too dandy or anything of the sort.

good or bad/better or worse - I'd say neither is right. More conservative, certainly. Too often SF group think conflates good with conservative and vice-versa. I am a creative/work in a creative field... this would be a fairly conservative outfit by the standards of some.

One might argue this violates the "rule" two patterns for biz/suit and three patterns for more casual... there are other things I might pick on with fit but as a 3-pattern match, I think this is fairly appealing.

A red trouser day...

Thanks for all the advice about Paris. Special thanks to Fuuma for providing the best information yet.





Patterns & colors. Looks very flat and lifeless because of flash.

Navy suit; white with blue window-pane shirt; dark red tie (looks brighter than IRL). This may be the last time I wear this as a full suit for a while. My wallet wore a hole through my pants today at school... guess I'll have to buy new navy suit pants.
