Derk has a fussy baby, a sick wife, and a profound lack of sleep, and you're worried whether or not he's wearing pants? What sort of philistine are you, anyway?

AWESOME all around. In addition to everything else, shoes look great- throat of the shoe laced up and closed, as it should be. Seems like with all the recent Carmina craze lately, there are a lot of shoes posted with the throat portion pulled open lookin sloppy. Well done on all fronts, sir!
Thanks for the kind words!post #59988 of 787219/16/13 at 6:55amQuote:

Disagree; that shirt can - and should - be worn with a tie IMO, but only with an otherwise ultra-sharp, business look. It would be a very English sort of look, necessitating, say, a navy suit (perhaps even a pin- or chalkstripe), black shoes and a similar tie one he's already wearing. White linen square or something like a navy polka dot if going for silk. I do agree that it looks out of place with the tie in the more casual outfit. But I would not like it open-collar either. Smart, City-ish sort of look is the way to go with it I think!
For example, if you were to use his shirt/tie combo in my outfit today, I think it would work pretty nicely:post #59993 of 787219/16/13 at 7:39ampost #59994 of 787219/16/13 at 7:57ampost #59995 of 787219/16/13 at 7:59am
@ Holdfast. Harvie & Hudson are, if for nothing else, known for their bold stripe shirts, and I picked the tie together with mr Harive sr. to go with that shirt. But as you say, it is supposed to be worn with a sharp british suit, and not a casual outfit as I had today.
H&H used to be my favorite shirtmaker, and this design particularly - and I have quite a few in blue, pink, red and yellow.
Still I understand those here who dislike the shirt; it is rather loud and can attract to much attention. That's the reason why I can only wear it on days that I can take that kind of looks...post #59996 of 787219/16/13 at 8:03ampost #59997 of 787219/16/13 at 8:04amhell of a time picking a shirt for this. ended up with this because i liked the texture. not sure the color blue is quuuuuuuite ideal tho.
i think i am happy with it.

Re the shirt: Too many solids and blue is too saturated.
I would have opted for a striped shirt. ie. Blue/White University stripe OCBDpost #59999 of 787219/16/13 at 8:13am
