And despite a growing navy pants consensus, Manton's insight applies here as well: gray flannels would work better.

I will.

Another go at a pocket square. Drakes I picked up from Cantabrigian. The suit is navy, not black.

Can we stop quoting that tie, I'm going to have a seizure.

Possibly, but high rise trousers are not terribly popular with the slim fit suits that most people on here prefer.

Charles Tyrwhitt tailored fit shirt.
Kiton tie (thank you Top Shelf).
Calvin Klein navy pants.
Allen Edmonds McAllister walnut shoes / AE belt.
Marc New York jacket (Moores).

Wondered what the thoughts were on colour combo.  Most people around the office were complimentary, a couple felt there were too many things going on.

I wouldn't generally have put the jacket on, but it was cold this morning.

Opinions appreciated.

Thanks!


wow...and not in a good way.

That tie, kiton or not, should be burned twice.

Pants are very billowy and too long.

Jacket sleeves are too long

shoes are good, but thats about it.

shirt color is a bit odd and the sleeves are too long.

I've been down that same road, and I've come to the conclusion that getting four patterns to work together harmoniously is an endeavor beyond the capabilities of most mortal men. I think with a suit like that, you need a solid shirt or solid tie to ground everything. If the shirt and tie are going to be patterned, probably need a plain white pocket square to balance it out.

after much thought, i think i will. i know its not for everyone, but i like it. and for me, this is one of those cases where i will go with what makes me happy, even if i know it may not be exactly SF approved.

Suit and shirt don't go well together IMHO. You need a finer stripe that's closer spaced. Check out this shirt with various PoW checks:
