Not really feeling the lavender shirt in this context. Too muted a colour. Needs some contrast/brightness in here. Maybe cream or ice blue.

The brown & navy ties are great. Can see them working great in a summer look. They're not for sale on your site yet; what's the pricing (and shipping to the UK) like for each of htose.



It's interesting; I didn't look at the close-ups so I thought the suit was solid navy in either a flannel or some kind of tweed. If it had been, I think this look would have been fantastic, with the contrasting waistcoat adding a lively touch. As it's actually a pinstripe, I'd have to agree with the waistcoat being out of place. The solution is simple: DC must keep everyone at least 6ft away, so the suit looks solid.

HF I will send you some info via pm today
The ties will be available online really soon though

Here goes, my first post in here after many months of lurking. This is what I wore at a friend's wedding reception in Mumbai.

Everything is bought on a student budget until I can afford a proper wardrobe! Couldn't get a full photo as girlfriend can't operate the SLR properly!

Suit- Daniel Hechter

Shirt- Ralph Lauren

Tie- Alexandre Saville Row

P.S.- Tie Rack

Belt and Shoes were burgundy leather.

Welcome aboard! A bit too much blue would be my only criticism. I think a pink gingham shirt would have been better. Otherwise everything looks like it fits pretty well. I think you look great.

You know, the more I look at it maybe a shirt that is simply less saturated would do it for me. Perhaps keeping the shirt and swapping the square instead . . . I'm sure someone else could give you better advice. Just some food for thought. Hope to see more from you in the future!

Tie seems a little more formal than the rest of the pieces imo. Maybe something a little more textured/woolen would be more consistent? Also, the knot could use a little work for a good dimple. Can't tell the fit of the items obv from this shot, so I will assume everything fits well.

 

Other than those few small things I like it and think that jacket/cardigan is very nice. I love its unstructured look.

 

Thanks for the feedback! FWIW: the tie is wool, maybe too subtle?--the picture doesn't do it justice. Re the knot, I thought it was okay but perhaps you could point me to some examples?

Thanks, I will keep that in mind for next time. As I'm a student (and will be for the next 4 years) I hardly get to dress like this (which sucks), but when the time comes I'll be sure to post on here.

Yea, I couldn't tell that it was wool, that certainly helps. Still, the pattern is a little "business" to my eye while the rest seems casual. Putting a strong dimple in the tie while knotting gives the tie "life" and helps it to drape well. As follows:

punit12, a solid shirt would have been better in that context. Anyway, welcome!
