i dont care what the rules say. imo, that PS/tie combo, where they share a common color, but are not an exact match, looks better than 99.9999% of the PS combos i see here. its much more visually appealing to me and much less strained. yes, its not the most brilliant combo ever, but most PS combos that try to be brilliant, are in reality, total fail. there is much evidence here to support that i think.
I've said more or less the same thing on here not so long ago.
That's twice I've agreed with you in one afternoon. I'm going for a lie down now, hopefully this feeling will soon pass!
carlton, like the carlton dance. not charlton like the charleston dance.
black shoes with navy is a british classic but brown nubuk or certain tan leathers work great, too we learned that from the italians. i'm personally not sold on chili shoes, the only reddish shoes i own are cordovan red or oxblood. i think chili could work with odd mid grey flannel trousers.
enjoy the night shift.
no this isnt snark. lol
Re: shoe color has to be a dark rubyish red- like No 8 shell - IMO that works with just about anything and is an American classic. But i agree that DC's choices of red are a bit jarring- fot that level of formality darker is better. But then, boutique hotel- quirky or dandified could be rite on the $s
I haven't posted a fit here in some time -- partly because, with a newborn, I've been working from home a lot, and partly I retreated back into lurking/learning mode, and partly I just decided to air out some fits that would get absolutely no love.
Yesterday, however, I did try to "fit the mold" a bit more, yielding the first fit in a while that might be fit for this thread's consumption.
