New black Richard James tie. The only thing about this is the off white / cream colour in the tie, does it clash with the white shirt? I warmed up the look by wearing burgundy shoes rather than black.

I see what you mean. I'm not sure I'd say clash, but in a funny way "dingy" though not dirty dingy, if you know what I'm trying to get at.
If you are going to go slubby and stripey with the suit, why not then go for a light blue shirt (not too saturated).
ETB, that is an absolute lesson in when a light blue shirt is better: all that black/grey/white makes the shoes look incongruous rather than welcome colour, and the stripes in the tie look dirty. Light blue shirt with the tie's cream stripes on it would be delicious, and also bring your shoes into the game by adding some colour to the top. Yeah, apart from that you're beautiful.
Beautiful suit, HF. Something's bugging me about the shirt pattern with the big herringbone - a weird reference of scale somehow. But you're not wearing a tie with giant electric green lobsters on it, or an inexplicably fuchsia cardigan, so overall I think you're probably beautiful too. I won't mention your collar points because mine are also of the mildly south-facing variety today. :)
Agree guys, I also feel the light blue would be better. I've a brand new Lewin one sitting in my wardrobe as well!
Clags, really like that shirt / tie combo. Never seen you in a suit though - do you always go SC / trousers?
That's a suit isn't it Holdfast? The lighting makes it look like two separates. I like the shirt / tie combo for sure.
^Dammit Mimo, that would have been THE perfect tie for what I am wearing today. Eternally envious......

Pingson, hard to see any reason for regrets here. The fun thing is that you could look good wearing this jacket in many different ways, as you do here, or wearing a forest green (perhaps even olive), textured tie (wool/grenadine) or even navy as mimo suggests. And any of those ties with this pocket square.
This is really an advertisement for why a few excellent jackets will get you very far (for those of us on a budget). Variety can then come from beautifully matched accessories. Again, well done my academic friend, you put me to shame.
Almost always. I used to need to wear a suit every day. Then I switched jobs and only needed to wear a suit occasionally. Now I need to wear a suit never (unless it's something involving a side job).
