I think this would have looked better with a light blue shirt, but I prefer to err on the side of a white shirt on days when I'm in court/administrative hearings.

Personally, I can't imagine it without the bow tie.

Southwick suit, BB shirt, J Press tie, AE shoes. White linen square fell down in the pocket.

+100. Absolutely. I can't understand anyone who'd think this better without the bow tie.

Even Lufty's in a related colour zone.  Hat-trick of wins.  Kind of goes from city to country as you scroll the page.

True true.  If you're going to go dandy, go dandy.  That suit takes balls to wear, it's outlandishly brilliant, and the bow tie caps the deliberate eccentricity off to a tee. EFV, that is rocking.

This is a complete win, if the game is being an extra in a post-addiction Robert Downey Jr remake of a Jack the Ripper/Shirlock Holmes/Houdini triple feature. Then again, I have no taste and am, admittedly, an awful poster.

Thanks for all the feedback, everyone!  Honestly, my first thought when I saw the flared bottoms on me was, "Ohhh.... Well, maybe if I taper them down a little..." After a while, the way the suit drapes around the waist made me think it would look too voluminous unless I slimmed it down all over lest I should create too much heft up top.  That would ruin the entire look; thus, I figured I'd try to rock it as-is.  As for pairing, I have such a small frame (and small face, frankly) that I was very careful not to go with too wide a knot or collar (though the collar falls a little narrow).  And a long point collar just looks claustrophobic with the vest.  My skin tone makes picking up browns difficult without washing me out, so I picked up the blue to accent the stripes.  But the blue is so bold that I tried to tone it down with the navy.  I thought about using a vintage brown & blue paisley Dior tie I have, but it had too much brown and was too wide -- and a wide knot just looks so ridiculous on me, so yeah.  I have a rust-colored woven I almost did to pair with the dress, but enh.... I figured the vintage Hanovers would be enough, and left it at that.  Ahhhh... be sure now that we are on the same page.  So many variables!

Heh, vintage...  Though yes, the tie is a little unfortunate.  Going with a more discreet stripe would look much better, IMO.  Suit fit is good, though, MedStudent. Yay for students making an effort!

but we also have one in Princeton that I find myself in often.

 

Yes for that Wawa!  Many late-night runs at that store during college.  Though apparently it has been called the northernmost of the southern schools satisfied.gif

Baller! I would have to go with a bowtie with this; it really makes it.  What does confuse me is the double-breasted choice, when the vest is invisible if the jacket is buttoned. I suppose this goes back to the issue of whether one should leave the jacket unbuttoned in a 3-piece?  But leaving a double-breasted jacket unbuttoned seems crazy.gif to me, unless one usually stands around in poses like that one.
