I know, however, it has recently been pointed out to me that v-necks are apparently very "upper prole." I may be making the switch to crewnecks exclusively.

What do you think of the Cottonwork shirts?
Thanks, I rate the cottonwork shirts fairly highly for the price point. Like any online mtm place where you cant feel the fabrics i've had a few shockers but at the very least my fit is dialed in and they are very flexible with little additions like lighter interlining etc. That being said, now I'm slowly introducing shirts to my own line I'm buying them less and less. If I had to try a new mtm maker online i'd probably give luxire a shot, they seem to be putting out some nice stuff.

Thanks. Good to hear about the interlining. The one shirt of theirs I saw had a very, very stiff collar and cuffs. If they will lighten it up, that's good to hear.

Don't buy into that claptrap.

Crewneck + tie always looks sad.

There is nothing apparent about the proletude of v--necks.

smile.gif - just kidding guys....

The high v-neck is a persistant problem where I live. Finding a suitably low one is a major pain in the a**. However, I find that I like the higher v-neck when I'm not wearing a tie. I guess the solution is two sweaters in every color!

I don't agree with that. Depending on the crew neck, it can be a bit more contemporary / fashion-forward than often seen in MC (or is it CM now) but sad, no.

Do you have an example photo handy? I've never seen it done streetwear style. I've only ever seen people who should be wearing a v-neck but bought a crewneck on sale instead.

It is interview season. Sorry I do not have a better picture. Never been happy with the shoulders on this suit but it was my first SF informed purchase so. Yeah. Missed posting in here. Maybe when I get a j.o.b. again I will be able to more.

Wow. Classic example of a three pattern match that "should" work, but doesn't. You even had the high contrast, relatively dark tie concept working in your favour.

 

I think the problem is that the colors are too well matched, The base color of the tie and the over-check on the sc are just too close in hue and tone to keep the patterns from clashing..

 

A navy or black tie with a woven pattern in between the shirt stripe scale and the sc plaid scale would make this an outstanding outfit despite the lack of contrast between sc and trousers. I recommend a black tie. Navy would brighten it a bit and even a bitter chocolate woven pattern tie would work with brown shoes.

 

Just an opinion not based on science.

I actually think the crewneck /tie combo is pretty old school university-like. Works better with a slightly wider crewneck though.
