whoa cowboy. youre WAY off base here. grey/khaki do fine together. Cuccinelli pretty much based his entire brand off grey and tan together.

I do agree reg: the shoes though.

Whatever the #menswear or SF wisdom says, it doesn't work in this case IMHO - it may also be the combination of 1, the similarity in tone; and 2. the difference in texture and the contrast between the neatness of the jacket and the wrinking / rolling of the trousers, rather than just the 'colours'.

 

And BTW - if you go over to Cucinelli's website and check out the summer collection, I think you will find that while there is alot of grey and khaki, it is cut and mixed with a lot of darker colours, particularly burgundy and navy blue, which was exactly what I was suggesting. Go on: have a look...

well, youre entitled to your opinion, as i am as well. I think youre flat out wrong on khaki and grey not working together.

as for it being #menswear or Sf wisdom, thats fucking ridiculous.

and thanks for the link to the new cuccinelli stuff. Always nice to browse through it.

I agree with Monkey: I like the jacket a lot, and the shoes too.  But somehow the lack of a strong countering tone leaves the overall image a little..washed out.  This might even be a combo to suit the infamous "how to wear" navy trousers.

Exactly. I love the jacket too, and it would be superb with navy or burgundy trousers (just like the new Cucinelli collection, as it happens...). (However I was assuming that the wrinkled chinos were inspired by this week's challenge and were therefore to be taken as the basis of things).

1. lol @ gray and khaki being #menswear or SF group-think, its about as classic a color combination as it gets.

2. there is more than enough contrast in tone to make it great.

3. the difference in texture is a non issue here. they are both casual cotton fabrics, they are wonderful together. a jacket as wrinkly as the pants but not a suit would just look messy, imo.

4. i put this together before i knew about the friday challenge.

tl;dr - i have had some poor fits, but i think you are dead wrong here.

Now I see why you're not keen to try the pocket squares.  Bit sensitive? Proportion, old chap!

taking aside any taste considerations, there are only 2 1/2 things wrong with Stitches outfit.

Welcome to the party! Hard to say anything about the fit, so I'll pass on that except to say that you probably would benefit from a slightly wider spread on the collar. Shirt and tie is a little too matchy for my taste, it would work better with a simple white or light blue shirt IMHO. Otherwise colours are nice, a good start.

However, I am definitely NOT a fan of contrast buttonholes .....

(...and those are some humongous cufflinks you've go there)

Welcome, and thanks for posting!

Please take this in the constructive tone in which it is intended: this needs a lot of work.
  1. The tie matching the shirt is not a good look.
  2. Bright red ties in general are not a good look.
  3. That is an extremely, extremely casual shirt, and probably should not be worn with a suit or tie.
  4. The contrast buttonholes are just... no.
  5. The cufflinks are humongous and gaudy. Not my favorite, but this is the least of the sins here.
post #51464 of 78717
^^Agree, although the shirt could benefit from a solid navy tie. I dont mind gingham shirts with suits.

also take a marker and color those buttonholes wink.gif

I don't have a problem with gingham shirts in general (I have a blue one I quite like), but I don't like them with suits. Even that aside, the larger scale and red color make this one look like a picnic blanket... So yeah, I'm definitely not a fan of it.

But yeah, the buttonholes are maybe the worst part.
