Cantabrigian: This from Ivy Style

This leads us to yet one more inexplicable preference in the Ivy clothing genre worth mentioning: The crewneck sweater. While v-necks and cardigans were always offered by Ivy clothiers, somehow the crewneck became the standard cut, even when worn with a necktie, as the Yale student below demonstrates:


Spoo: What's up with the white dots on the shoes?

Tits: Thank you for demonstrating the importance of appropriate haberdashery.

Can't tell if serious... either way, The white dots are from the sting ray, though I forget which part off the top of my head.

You should not do this again:

1) Jacket (regardless of intention/origin) is an orphaned suit jacket
2) The shirt is fighting the jacket, and there isn't enough differentiation in tone/value between the shirt and tie
3) Those pants do not belong in the same ZIP code as the top half of the outfit
4) Same for the shoes
5) The hank is neither coordinated nor complementary

All that said, please keep trying! smile.gif

I thought that might be it. And, yes, serious.

Even though the jacket is my favorite, anyone has an idea how to make it acceptable? If not, I will probably put them on bay.

Now you're making me feel bad...

Wow, glad I could provide such a great counter example for everyone. It does look like a similar fabric, Tits.
I actually like the contrast between the tie and sc, and that it picks up the over check. No hum.

I made the mistake of buying a charcoal blazer once. Now even I see it and think "orphaned suit jacket." I generally pair it with some really subtle herringbone light brown wool trousers and I think it looks alright.

 

That that jacket has stripes makes it a bit more difficult. I have another jacket which I suspect was originally a suit jacket (bought from the sale rack at Banana Republic) with very faint blue and orange stitch striping (making that term up...but the stripes are a single thread wide and dashed as opposed to solid) that doesn't get worn anymore.

I knew you were a big ole softy at heart, regardless of your custom title.

Received the tie(s) from fellow SF-member, driftking (Big Thanks!) This is the one I have no clue how to match it... Blue shirt, this tie, and light gray jacket maybe??

It's your jacket. Do what you want with it. However it really does look like a suit jacket that lost it's trousers. There is no way to make it look acceptable from my standpoint because you can't change the pattern, and pinstripes almost always mean suit. I've seen you try to make this jacket work before and it just isn't happening. Just get yourself a nice sport coat.

That shirt is not one to wear with a tie. That tie = white or light blue shirt, navy blazer, light tan trousers, booze, summertime.

 

EDIT: Trousers could be linen. Drink should be G&T.

Both those shirts seem a bit dark to wear with a tie. You'd have a hard time getting the proper contrast with the tie and/or jacket.
