I quite like that cardigan and that shirt/tie combination. I'm less convinced by the waistcoat/trousers/shoes combination. A rougher-textured, pattered, navy waistcoat and perhaps cords or moleskin for the trousers would feel more in tune with the chunky cardigan. On the other hand, if the cardigan is purely outerwear (ie you take it off completely at work), then I can sort of see what you're aiming for.

 

 

 

 

 

Lazy Monday... and a new handkerchief.

Tie is not as shiny/light as it appears in the first picture. Suit is a gray/brown.

 

That knot is....uhhhh....a tad on the large side. Especially given the 3 piece.

Also, if it's not just the lighting, the trousers and jacket don't contrast enough. I thought it was a suit at first until I looked closer and was about to grumble about the colour of the shoes as usual. But paler grey flannel trousers, a different tie (and a normal pair of socks, but whatever on that as they're rarely seen IRL anyway) and I'd have liked this.

thanks, HF. might be time to let it go.

i have this problem every time i post this combo, the lighting is very hard to get right. especially on the full fit pic, using my iphone with a self timer. here is a far more accurate representation of the contrast in both color and fabric.



either way, i do need a pair of paler gray flannel trousers.

i like the socks. smile.gif

Well I agree that they are awesome but it it takes over your outfit and doesn´t do the shoes justice.

Yeah, about that crotch grab.....if you're going to take a picture of a 'crotch grab' please make sure you have a crotch worth showing off. It looks like you have a handful of cloth...

Why do you think I wear nice suits? I gotta make up for it somehow.

Thanks. Given the spread of the collar, I went with a half-Windsor, which I still thinks makes sense. But, the waistcoat does tend to "push" the tie up a bit, as well as showing less shirt which highlights the tie more. Perhaps I will just keep the half-Windsor but cinch it a but tighter/smaller.

I was just quoting George Costanza in case you missed that reference.

 

But to answer your question, I hate two button collar bands. I blame in equal amounts my love for thick buttons and my lack of fine motor skills for this. The small buttons on my shirts are usually 14 ligne x 3,5mm. those are a pain in the hindquarters to button close next too each other. My collar band would leave enough space for two small buttons, since I too belong to the cervixes longiusculus, but I always opt for a regular big one; the fastened tie does the rest.

 

but yeah, judging collar preferences without knowing the shape of the corresponding face is rather pointless.
