I saw this silk and fell in love with it...some vintage stuff Ercole brought over from the OC...very cartoony, not meant to be serious at all.
Jacket, waistcoat and trousers are all great to me. I don't agree with Mimo about odd waistcoats - they certainly can work sometimes, aprticluarly with odd, tweed-like jackers, and this is how it's supposed to be done. The only thing I am not completely happy with is the tie - too little contrast with the shirt for my taste.
I felt the contrast between blues was enough, what color would you go with, just a solid white? Its a s/s tie, think Seersucker, just wanted to nust it out.
Agreed - I dislike them alone with no jacket (although I used to wear that 20 years ago), and I also dislike them not matching with a business suit. But as you said, this is exactly how it's supposed to be done.
Re. NYI's tie, I think it looks OK as the shirt and tie together contrast so much with the rest of the components. But I do agree that it might work better with another colour group brought in there - if not the tie, then at least a PS. On which point: I'd appreciate your view on my hurried and non-contrasting choice today - too dull?
I had a PS in it in the morning, but it was overload with it, so I took it out.
LOL, you need to decide based on the coursework...test on Friday.
LOL, THX man...in the finals for my hockey league...best of 5, down 0-2 but pulled out a 5-4 OT win last night...4 points including the game tying goal with 3 minutes left in the third and the assist on the game winner in OT...the 'stach lives to see another day!
