HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4427  

post #66391 of 78717
I really like busier shirts from time to time. I don't think there is anything wrong with that shirt, and I agree it is better with a suit. Maybe it would be better with a grey suit tan a blue one, and I quite like the idea of picking up the white stripe with a PS. With the blue suit, I agree burgundy would look better. With a grey suit, I think a solid blue like that would be very good; burgundy might get too busy with the stripes, but might also work. You could also try the shirt with a three piece, or with a cardigan or sweater.

That shirt's too formal to pair well with any kind of knitwear. I think I like a sweater-vest under a suit more than most, but it needs to be with something fairly casual.

I think it could work with the right one, but perhaps not. I was also still editing that and posted inadvertently; in the end, I removed that suggestion, so i suppose I have to agree with you, lol. I was more meaning that, with a busy shirt, showing a bit less of it, via vest or whatever, can often make it more effective.

When I use it, you can only post using a URL of the picture.  I have only tried it recently so assumed it was just how it normally worked.

No, usually you can upload a picture directly from your phone.

You could occasionally wear it with a dark solid tie (I'd lean burgundy) under a dark suit. I think I like that sort of Jermyn St. (like Savile Row but for shirts) look more than the average on the forums, but it's not really optimal.

manton once gave an explanation about this. something to do with many brits wearing somber suits and school ties as a requirement, leaving only the shirt for some more expression. i believe that was the gist of it.

@Monkeyface I can't upload pics from my iPhone and I can't quote other posts either. I was able to do both of these last week but neither are working for me now.

From the holiday party last night

 

 

 

I forgot my pocket square as I sprinted out the door to catch a bus. I think it worked out okay and my tie matched her dress so that was good!

RTC, suit and vest look pretty good-- but what's going on with your shirt collar & tie knot??
