Sort of. Yesterday was sloppy habit, today I basically have to. The vest is short enough that if I didn't button the last button there's the risk of the trouser waist band peeking through - mostly a consequence of me being tall and the suit being RTW. I prefer my other MTM suits where the bottom button is made so that it can't be buttoned.

I'm kinda down with this. Some around here have a prejudice against having your tie and PS as the only things with a pattern but I think this looks good. Only thing is the shirt. Seems like it has kind of a satin sheen to it. Is that correct or is it just the picture? Anyway, if it is a bit shiny I think I would have gone another direction. On the whole I really like it.

shirt is definitely not shiny at all...just the pic. Shirt is a standard light blue cotton Borrelli.

I had a tough time with a square...i dont really like solid squares...especially with solid shirts/sportcoats. I figured this was subtle enough to work. Thanks for the kind words!

Then I definitely like the shirt with this! I am with you on the solid PS thing. I make an exception for white (obviously), cream, and light blue (dunno why I have a light blue solid PS but I like it). Yours in this case is a winner IMO!

Try dark-ish solid gray suit, dark grenadine tie (black, navy, purple). That shirt needs to be the most interesting thing in the fit.

Thanks for the input. I am definitely going to try that. I'm beginning to develop a stubborn tenacity in trying to make this shirt work.

Love the tie, but it is a pretty formal pattern--I wonder if it might look better with a suit. Not a huge fan of the PS, but you already mentioned that smile.gif

Great tie though, I really need to get one. Black/white ties look so good with blue. And I love the collar on that shirt.

I'll take that as an "I might be amenable to such a thing."

You are the first person I've seen get that.

Sheepy: Is that a purple striped shirt?
post #45777 of 78724
No, blue.

thanks! I actually think the tie is a little too casual for a suit. while the pattern may be formal, its kind of a shlubby wool.

IMO The tie is the problem here, you say it is navy, I say that it needs to be a lot darker navy.. However if it were my outfit, I would go with a medium to dark green or grey tie.

The thing about Arsenal is: they always try to walk it in.

 

True, but on balance I don't have a problem with that. In theory. The problem is that they don't have the squad strength to support such a technically-intensive, patient style. You need a ridiculously high quality defence & midfield to create speed, movement & space if you play like this (viz. Barca/Spain, and even then it helps to have someone capable of magic at the front). With their current squad, Arsenal can't maintain the precision & imagination necessary for 90 minutes. And so they end up leaking more goals when someone hits back.

 

I'm not a believer in spending your way to footballing success, but some strengthening throughout the squad, and especially down the spine, is needed to enable them to keep playing this style. Either that, or adopt a different style. Wenger will never do the latter, so if he stays (and I don't see anyone available who's better, unless Mourinho could be persuaded), then the board need to let him spend some serious money this summer. The new FIFA fair play rules should actually work in the Gunners favour on this, as they're one of the few clubs to run the business side very tidily.

The new jacket's fabric  is great, and it suits you too I think. The whole look has a nice feel to it IMO.

This looks great. Even the unrelated square somehow works for me, though I'd prefer it as a loosely pointed fold, given that it is essentially a random component in this look, so why not accept that and make a feature of it instead of half-heartedly pushing it down into the pocket. The very classic shirt/tie/jacket combination gives you a little room to be crazy elsewhere if you want.
