Today's fit, mind you, is bound to be controversial:
Tie colour is good for that shirt/suit combo; just leery enough. However, it needs to have a pattern of some sort rather than be a solid. I have an orange Hermes with typically daft cartoon characters on it; would be ideal for a brash look like this one.Originally Posted by Roy Al
Another day in winterwonderland, and it is never too early for a Gin Fizz.
Really great fit, esp. the suit. And I heartily agree with the Gin Fizz sentiment... though I generally find them more of a summer than winter drink (sloe gin fizz would be an exception though).
Everything is really fantastic...
... until I scrolled down and saw the light-coloured shoes. I will never get the aesthetic appeal of a dark suit plus light shoes; for me, it causes the eye to jump from important face/tie area right down to shoes in a really harsh way, rather than being able to smoothly take in the whole outfit while still focusing attention on the face. Moreso IRL than in photos, too. With a casual outfit, there are a greater number of points of visual interest to move around on anyway, so light coloured shoes aren't a problem (or at least, less of a problem) and with a light suit, obviously they're fine... but with a dark suit, it just seems so harsh to me. I can just about understand Italians liking it, as the quality of their sunlight mellows the look out a bit, by altering the look of a dark suit a bit. But in more northern lands, especially in winter, with our different kind of sunlight... Oh well, each to their own, and I do accept that mine is a minority opinion on SF.post #70044 of 787222/4/14 at 10:04ampost #70045 of 787222/4/14 at 10:05ampost #70046 of 787222/4/14 at 10:15ampost #70047 of 787222/4/14 at 10:31ampost #70048 of 787222/4/14 at 10:37am

i expected you would say that, you said the same the last time i wore such a combo. i hear ya, but i could not disagree more. light brown shoes and navy suit is a wonderful combo. the jarring-ness is part of the appeal.post #70049 of 787222/4/14 at 10:44ampost #70050 of 787222/4/14 at 11:04amQuote:
For me, the “jarringness” is somewhat mitigated here by the tie, which is both lighter and brighter than the shoes. That means that the eye is, in fact, drawn to the face. Well, mine is, at least. People might try the thought-experiment of imagining this with a navy tie, which would entirely eliminate the effect I’m suggesting.
Ultimately jarringness is a matter of degree, which might help explain why two extraordinarily sophisticated dressers like In Stitiches and Holdfast can reasonably disagree on this example.
By the way, speaking of conscious departures from conventional wisdom, I’m noting a lot of (what I would regard as) very nice lighter-top/darker-bottom ensembles in the last several pages of this thread. I don’t know if this is accidental, a result of the Friday Challenge a couple of weeks back, or I’m just noticing them because of that challenge, but whatever the reason I’ve been enjoying them.
