Thanks, good advice. I do have a burgundy PS, never thought of using it here.

Boglioli soft cord sport coat, bastian for gant spread collar shirt, brown suede tods boots, gilded age denim. I think Bhambis might be my favorite tailor for alterations, really like job they did on the jacket

Sprezz, good look. i want your lapel pins.

pingson and aportnoy, excellent.

rtc - tie is ok, do not like jacket in that pic, and you need some lighter, less saturated, blue shirts if you are going to be wearing a jacket and tie.

Pingson always complains about his light, yet always has great photographs (to go with his great outfits). I, on the other hand, complain about the light and back it up with concomitant photography.

 

Today's security guard is brought to you by Polo Ralph Lauren (SC and pants), ancient madder, and last night's Hanukkah gift, a little something from Luxire.

The SC is nice but appears to be waaay too big for you. I don't like the tie but it's not too bad, so you could keep it and try to make it work. This shirt won't help you in building a nice outfit: it's too dark and therefore makes it very difficult to match with a tie and a SC and achieve a good contrast.

 

IMHO you should try something simple and easy, and then climb the complexity ladder once you mastered the simple things. If I were you, I would start with this:

 

- Measure your neck, shoulders, chest and waist, and find 2/3 shirts that fit you well that are either white or very light blue (Italian semi-spread/spread collar would be the easiest choice IMHO; also go for plain, no patterns).

 

- Buy/thrift a navy SC that fits you well. You probably won't find a perfect fit, but make sure that collar and shoulders looks fine (compare it to the pictures you see here). You will be able taper the waist later. Bring your shirt and check that the points of the shirt's collar are hidden below the SC. Again, plain, no pattern.

 

- IIRC your trousers don't have particular issues, so, for the moment, save your money for the rest.

 

- Buy a few ties in basic colours: navy, burgundy, grey/charcoal. Pick simple patterns that you like: dots, small prints (flowers), regimental if you fancy it. Plain ties are fine as well.

 

- White PS.

 

This will provide you, with a small investment, a good base for a versatile wardrobe. The light shirts, the basic colours and the relative absence of patterns will make it easy for you to combine your clothes, and will also make it easy for you to add more clothes in the future and improve the flexibility of your wardrobe.

Thats what I like about this place.  Mostly contributive posts and gentlemen acting like gentlemen.  :fonz:

Thanks, Ede & Ravenscroft always put out fantastic silk scarves.

 

Today, I'm wearing my oldest scarf; I think about 20yrs old, and from Marks & Spencers. And no, I still haven't got round to removing the fabric label. I never bother to do so with scarves, unless they're in a really contrasty colour; life's too short. The pocket square has pheasants on it, though the way the fold turned out, it appears as if they've all flown away.

IMHO, best advice I've seen in a while...great explanation and for any newcomers such as myself (relatively) this serves as a great guide. Thanks Sprezz! +1 :nodding:

Betelgeuse - I love the height and width of the collar on the Moda shirt (not to mention, the tie, sportcoat, etc). In your review, you mentioned that it was a special order. Would you mind sharing the details? Much appreciate.

thanks for all the likes yesterday, gents! cheers.gif

Thanks! I have white shirts and light blue shirts. I suppose I should start wearing them more and picking up more of them. As far as the ties and stuff goes, from now I'll probably wear just an SC when I wear shirts like this so I don't have to pair ties or I'll pair them with a simple bow tie since those are easier.

 

I think the jacket looks weird because I'm holding the phone with two hands to take the noble selfie. It's a 38. I'm certainly not a 36. I think the padding in the shoulders makes it look a hair bigger, but the poof in the chest is because of my arms pulling forward. I think a khaki blazer would have worked better with this particular setup. I should have gone for that.

 

Back to the drawing board :)
