This is great. Perfect fit and the colors work great together.

Like the suit. And I also do the light tie/light shirt thing sometimes for a bit of a kink. But I think that requires a big contrast in the PS to lift it up - something completely different in colour and tone - not that one. Also, the shoes make a difference, what you got?
Black Park Aves. I don't wear shoes inside the house, and it would be a hassle to take off my shoes, set up the camera, then put the shoes back on again. I figured the tan on white would be a challenge, but I had hoped that the blue wool ps would be enough to, as you say, "lift" it.
(also, still trying to figure out the proper white balance with the new lighting)
EDIT: And to respond to stitchy's forthcoming post: it's an old suit (HF) and I've gotten a lot of wear out of it. It's going to be retired in April or so as the suit I will be having made for my wedding will be very similar in color and fabric. (The visit to the tailor is in April, not the wedding)
I think maybe you should have been more bold. Going doubly-light on the shirt and tie, and with a grey suit, I think demands a splash of something. Maybe the tan shoes, or burgundy, and a PS from within that family too. Then you'd be rocking. Or you could go the other way and drop the colours altogether with a white or cream PS, different kind of statement and probably more difficult to pull off.
Why would an atheist go to church at all? Maybe I don't want to know.
