Thanks, the collar gap is most likely caused by standing a little crooked when taking the pic.

The shirt is Luxire, a white "panana weave" which I think is a somewhat fancy oxford weave, yes. And I'll take the "almost"! For me, they're about right; not the full-on very Italian roll you sometimes see, but a more than the typical British one. I like it; it creates some attention around the centre of the body that replaces that which is lost by the lack of a tie.

They're definitely fun! I'd love to find some burgundy or perhaps yellow cords for a reasonable price. Yeah, that's why I said almost! The collar looks great, but it's on the border of being too much. Have you tried a slightly higher collar? If it stands more upright the roll would look a little less beefy.

 

I have tried a collar that's 0.25" higher than this in the past; it becomes too high for the back my neck. Anyway, I'm happy with the appearance as is.

Photo looks fine to me. My personal biases mean that I'm never going to be able to truly come round to pale brown/tan shoes with solid navy suits - it pulls the eye up & down way too much for my liking - but this must be a very decent example of the breed as I don't actually dislike it.

I like the combination of the shoes and the orange tie! What's wrong with the full pic? It's better than any pic I've ever posted on here.

Mr. Chris, very nice fits young man!

Stitchie, those shoes are very very orange, but I like the style on you.

DC, other than the fit/color of the cords (which is nice), this stuff is not flattering when put together...

wow, thanks man! i have always loved the jarring juxtaposition of light tan shoes and a navy suit, and have been meaning to try it. today is that day. glad i did not fail.

not sure whats bothering me about the pic. maybe the angle, maybe the way my legs look, idk, but i dont like it. glad it seems to be just me for now. smile.gif

L.O.L.!

I meant to say, "such as...?" I just put an extra "s" in there but had no intention of calling him an ASS LOL. Didn't even see that one!

Indeed, I was only joking. I'm sure you know that JW isn't looked upon that favourably in the whisky world. Anyway, if I were drinking that much whisky I'd vary a bit between a good scotch, some rye (for the obligatory old fashioned), and even bourbon once in a while, but JW would not be part of the rotation (blue label being the exception, although it's a bit overpriced).

I went from Chopin (the vodka) to JW...I guess it's time to mix it up and switch. I really can't shell out $200 on the JW blue label because that means I can't go to Neiman Marcus and pick up a nice Tom Ford   Charvet tie
