My pops retirement party today...30+ years of service to Catholic Education in NYC. Bishop Loughlin (had Mark Jackson in his English class), Bishop Kearney, and the last 9 as principal of Notre Dame Academy HS. I'm real proud and happy for my old man.
Awesome. This outfit is perfect to my eyes, and congrats to your pops.
I like everything but the anemic shirt collar. You'd be better served with an OCBD or a collar with longer points.
Thanks. This shirt has the best collar roll of any I own (non button-down) on account of it being completely unlined and it fills a niche in terms of its fabric/color. But I agree, it'd be better longer!
To my eye, the buttoning point on your suit seems spot-on, but of course everyone's preference varies a bit [...] Colour, or pattern? I would understand if it's the pattern... that certainly won't be to most people's liking! Colour-wise, though, I feel it's about right.
I think a sold tie would have nailed it with the gingham check shirt. This tie would have nailed it with a solid white or lilac shirt.
