Hehe. You guys... I like colorful stuff, and this jacket works rather well with my complexion and hair.

Anything that has the right level of formality and is mid- to dark coloured. Pink shirt could also work nicely, depending on the shade. And a different PS! This is white linen I assume? Dark wool or silk prints would be good.

Good ideas. I was mostly confused as to which ps to wear. Went through a bunch, but nothing seemed right. I think I need to try a beige linen one, too.

Very nice, CW. Very tasteful.

What do you think of the Cottonwork shirts?
post #43133 of 78723



Not sure if this is a good combo or not?

post #43134 of 78723
The pieces are all fine but the combination is not. The shirt and tie are very bright and formal, where as the tweed is more rough and subdued. Were you wearing a charcoal suit, you'd be good, but the colors do not work together. A better thought would be an off white shirt and say a black or green knit tie.

Edit: This is not to say that this is the worst thing ever posted however.

^ This. Satin tie is not ideal for tweed.

A less formal tie would be better. (Matte silk print, knit, grenadine, wool, Ancient Madder, raw silk, etc.)

pretty much this.

also, is that a white on white stripe shirt?

lastly, try and nudge your tie all the way up for your pics.

Yes, that's a white on white stripe shirt. Is it not good?

 

I will try to nudge my tie all the way up next time.

I'm in the same boat. Def not my fave.

+1 to all the other comments re: this fit as well. Good parts (except for the shirt smile.gif), but they don't go together too well.

2. Get a better haircut with some structure underneath, so you no longer need to comb it, but towel dry and go. You are too young to be combing your hair. Find a stylist that trained or apprenticed at Jingles or the like, as they will know what to do. Women will notice this immediately, but not be certain of what has changed.

 

3. De-tag your scarf as you now own it. You can always have your initials or monogram embroidered upon it, if you believe it is a common color and/or subject to being mis-placed.

 

4. If you aren't attending a wedding or other outdoors day event, you need to wear a much darker tie with your suit. Light colored  or low color intensity ties are the most common faux pas and they almost always look weak on camera or even at just beyond the range of a handshake. Save the silver ties for outside weddings and garden parties, they are weak sauce and contrast failure. Keep your ties as dark or darker than all other elements sans accessories like shoes, belts, and pocket squares.

 

5. Put your chauffeur in some form of a uniform, even if it is simply black lounge, or you should begin to stop dressing in the same style, unless you wish to have people confuse your station and function with his.

 

6. You might wish to consider wearing a boutonniere OR a pocket square, but not both at the same time, personal style and all aside.

 

7. I am not sure if it is wise to show shirt cuff from under a top coat, but it does look presentable.

 

8, Your scarf knot certainly looks functional, but it is not elegant.

 

 

On a more positive note; you seem to have an excellent tailor, a good sense of pattern matching, and a wonderful taste in automobiles. Congratulations!
