Sure... 3 years more conviction at the gym and consistent sunbathing then I might have the guts to pull that off.

Please don't pull them off.  You want the "Streetwear and Denim" section.  This is Classic Menswear.  T-shirts, running shoes and logo'd underpants are not the thing.  Go over to the other side, and I'd suggest starting your own thread.  They will love it, I'm sure.

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.

My screen shows more of a light brown SC. In that context it looks smashing.

Must be my screen then! Light brown would be... nice.

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. :)

Zingggg!  I think your tie just kicked me in the nuts.  But I kind of enjoyed it.  Nice one, Clags.

Drakes in "fuck you red". I tried to tell Noodles that every collection requires one such tie, but he got rid (apparently) of his red Hober.

post #68877 of 78724

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.

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).

^ Ah yes I remember some of those fits now - especially the "English country gent" one. :-)

 

Funny, if given the choice I would always go with suits. Might be more of a European thing. Or at least, here in Dublin 99% of office workers wear suits (and about 50% of them are awful).

 

However you do always pull off a great SC / trousers look!
