Would you guys recommend unlined with rolled edges on a grenadine?

Claghorn: This is my favorite of your looks -- I kind of like the (to me) slightly counterintuitive pairing of the grenadine tie and spread collar shirt with the jacket. It's a kind of cool variation on the slightly more obvious knit/OCBD combo. I think I like it because everything's so refined in texture, and because the colors are right for each other.
stitches: That jacket is really great -- a lovely cut, the kind of three-button that I really like -- and it looks great with that tie and those trousers. If you had R Diaz's or Claghorn's shirt, then you'd be knocking it out of the park.
Also, I like your socks.

i love it. it makes the tip of the tie kind of see through, and some think that is weird, but i think its awesome. and the rolled edge is DO. IT!Quote:
thanks. apparently i am an idiot for not going solid blue with this. will try again next week.post #45229 of 787172/12/13 at 8:35am
Thanks for the kind words! To make things weirder, the spread collared shirt is oxford cloth.
As far as folds on grenadines. The tie I'm wearing is a six fold fina (or picolla) from Panta and it's unlined. I'm waiting on an experimental tie from Hober which will be unlined picolla 4 fold. It'll be really delicate...I've got no idea how it'll drape, but it'll be interesting. Getting a second more traditional lined picolla grenadine as well.

Stitchy, I agree that the shirt is oversaturated, but I'd still give you one Graybeard™Quote:
I have a thinly lined, multifold, untipped grenadine and a traditionally lined, three-fold, self-tipped grenadine. I prefer the latter. Grenadines in particular do not seem to benefit from all of the iGent-treasured features.post #45233 of 787172/12/13 at 9:43ampost #45234 of 787172/12/13 at 9:44ampost #45235 of 787172/12/13 at 9:45ampost #45236 of 787172/12/13 at 9:48ampost #45237 of 787172/12/13 at 10:02ampost #45238 of 787172/12/13 at 10:59amOriginally Posted by Claghorn
My "fuck you red" tie, worn in part for Monday and in part because I haven't been wearing Thomas Pink much since joining SF.
An occasional deliberately leery look can be a fun; I like this one in that spirit.
Overall though, I actually prefer your more recent fit. Good way to use that jacket.
Source of the bowtie please? It has a nice width & shape to it.
I think both the fit and the colours are difficult in this look. The trousers look too snug (even for a slim look) & the jacket looks tight. Also, they're a similar colour, which makes them difficult to pair together despite the jacket's pattern. The tie would be fine with the jacket, if the trousers were darker, I think. As it is, it's too dark.
Much too much green, and not a particularly pleasing green at that. Different (complementary rather than matching) shirt & tie next time you wear this outfit, would be my advice.
Darker trousers needed here, to contrast more in tone/brightness (not sure of exact correct word) vs the jacket, IMO. Different colour alone isn't enough here. Along the same lines, the tie may be a different colour, but again it's the same sort of tone so the different colour comes across as confusing rather than complementary. Imagine this look with a dark forest green tie and really dark (or I suppose, very pale) trousers (or even dark denim) and I think it would pull together much better.
Imagine desaturating the image of all colour and turning into a black & white image. I don't know for certain but I bet that all the colours will appear quite similar. That's a very tricky look to pull off once the varying colours are restored (unless they're all the same colour eg. navy suit & tie with white or pale blue shirt, for an extreme example).
tl;dr version: needs more contrast (or fewer colours).
Cool. Would love it even more with flap or slanted pockets, but great anyway.
RJE - thx for the useful feedback; your recent fit is very good.
Slightly darker tie would have worked better today, but oh well...post #45239 of 787172/12/13 at 11:19ampost #45240 of 787172/12/13 at 11:32am
