In short, I know that I should undo the last button, but alas the waistcoat is on the short side and the trouser rise is also not as high as i would like, so I keep the button closed to not show any shirt/tie. The problems of buying RTW when you're 6'6".......

A small price to pay to comfortably wear what is an excellent suit.

This thread needs so much more of aportnoy and so much less of other crap.

I actually think small neat patterns are better: just as formal, but add some subtle character.  Sometimes wearing all solids (and I have to say, this is something I've change in my own wardrobe over the years) can look terribly flat - and adding brighter colours alone rarely works.  Grab a couple of Macclesfields for classic, safe CBD without that "mail order catalogue" look.

LOL - this was a very useful clear cut throat type of feedback. You may have found your unique talent.

Rudals...I have experienced equal difficulty in pairing glen plaid shirts with suits but have found them to be great with odd jackets. Try pairing it with a tweed (nothing too bold patterned) with complementary coloring and and flannels with a contrasting (with constraint) knit tie and I think you will be happier.
post #66683 of 78717

Definitely a navy knit. Everything else too, but I suspect hell will freeze before we see Rudals in tweed.

post #66684 of 78717

Roooodals, I lik the shirt, but I guess it needs a more casual jacket. 

 

Pignson, great, great, great!

Thanks @aportnoy. I am in full agreement with you. But I only have conservative suits due to where I work (near Capitol Hill).

And YES, we do need more of people like @aportnoy in this thread.

I've shopped Claghorn's and Stitchy's trousers when they were having difficulties combining them with a paritcular jacket. It's always a fun exercise of colour coordination.

And your actions led to me to taking similar actions for the sake of experimenting with color.

 

(originally navy pants)

 

(on looks where black tie might be the optimal choice)

Shoot, I might be running out of thumbs up with all these feedbacks. 

@Claghorn - show me some nice tweeds, I just might. I am gonna lurk around and see who had some great looks with striped shirts.

post #66689 of 78717
Thanks for the kind words Rudals and Stichy!

I am also relegated to conservative suits for the work week so I know where you are coming from.

Sounds like the shirt should be saved for weekend wear and then you could pair it with just about any type of sweater or odd jacket combo.

For the record, I like DonCologne's shirt collar, I see no issue with it... its better than the ones he's had recently, where one collar seemed to be going under the other...

 

Agree about the trousers - they're too short. I have this issue, being 6'5" (now that we're all being honest). It generally doesn't bother me, on me, but it does when I see it on others. ;)
