Stichie, nice SC. I really like the texture and it looks good with those gray trousers. Deets of the SC please. Double vented?

All your ties would look better if you properly tied the knot. Below this notch this is clean. From the notch to your neck it is a mess. Tighten it up; single dimple.

Re the shirt: Too many solids and blue is too saturated.
I would have opted for a striped shirt. ie. Blue/White University stripe OCBD

not a bad idea. thanks. dont have one in OCBD, but have a stripe that is non BD that would do the trick i think.

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...


I rather like it, though it does fall outside of the general aesthetic here (which really seems like a sort of ameritalian these days, but I could be wrong). I had a similar thought to HF, but this was mostly from watching Kingdom, Party Animals, and other British shows, so it seemed best to keep my mouth shut.

Master-Classter: Thank you. The socks are absolutely the weak point of this rig, but they were clean, which made me forgive them a number of their sins.

 

stitches, here's my problem with that rig: the contrast is mostly in hue, not in saturation or lightness. There's just not enough contrast for me. To demonstrate, here's the pic in black and white. Tie and shirt look kind of muddy together. I would have been fine with a lighter blue shirt in this rig, though the right stripe would be amazing.

I am like a sloppy kid! Keep screwing up the knot again and again! I gotta get back to the basics. Can't even tie a four-in-hand knot properly. This is a joke.

Apparently someone else deals with color in cylindrical coordinates.

Spot on & exactly what I was getting at; the shirt/tie combo is good. It just needs the right conservative suit to set it off perfectly. As mktitsworth says later, these kind of somewhat leery English shirt combos are now a little outside the forum's preferences, but I think it definitely still has a place. Nice to see that kind of combo here.

 

stitchy - I actually quite like the colours in jacket/tie/shirt combination. It reminds me a little bit of some 80s Armani colour combinations, esp. the shirt/tie.

interesting. i personally have never been one for black and white, those transformations just dont do it for me. oh well. but i do agree the shirt and tie are not ideal. not because of teh gray scale, but because of how they actually look in their irl colors. still, i think its ok, certainly not bad, imo.

i tried a lighter blue btw, but it ended up looking almost exactly the same as the tie. instead of "muddy" it was very "matchey." ill try this again, exactly the same, but with a stripe. maybe in a week or so.

thanks!

I actually just muddle through it (just starting to get serious about shooting color photos, after a few semesters of black-and-white), and had to use google to figure out how I could express what I meant.

 

stitches, I think part of the problem is that the tie is a very blue shade of green, which makes it tough to balance with another blue. Maybe a tattersall would help?

I find HSV/HSL to be a superior method of talking about color to RGB.

I tend to think of RGB as a subset of hue -- it's kind of a stretch to have a clear conversation about saturation or value in RGB terms. I'm lucky enough to be able to do most of my thinking about color in analog, intuitive terms (I do my digital work in Snapseed, because in Photoshop I look at the values on the sliders, not the image itself), so I can be kind of imprecise.
