Rudals, do you love or hate the tux?
post #71072 of 78723

@Monkeyface.

I hate tux. 

Why? I have hard enough time figuring out how to dress well in suits. 

Tux is just another challenge that I am not ready to tackle yet.

Love this suit! The shoes add a lot, a good suit deserves good shoes :cheers:

1. the brown stripe in the tie would be enough shoe/beard color to work.

2. the largely spread apart stripes would work.

perhaps i was mistaken.

 

One might cite a "rule" which this goes against, I suppose.  Nevertheless it has a logic, and to my eye this works in the same way one of your previous fits worked, one which some people (not I) thought a bit too matchy:   from the top down the beard, tie, and shoes all seem to belong to the same family.  There's a pattern to it, and it contrasts with the suit.

 

In a word, this works for me because it looks *purposeful*, not accidental.   But it's not the kind of thing concerning which one can expect unanimous agreement.

 

( I do agree it's a lovely suit, by the way).

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

Your suit has the same magical colour-changing property as Clags' blue jacket; it looks SO much nicer in the close-up than the full-length shot. The blue is really nice here (and I'm guessing this is the true-to-life colour).

 

 

 

 

We actually had something approximating sunlight today! :cool:

Awesome fit BTW!!!

Thanks gentlemen for yesterday's thumbs.

 

Today being Saturday and a little more casual, I opted for a softer shirt - probably not designed for wearing with a tie, so the collar sits a little oddly.

Is my thinking off?

Stripes are very business/city. The shoes he was wearing (can't remember if they were captoe or wingtip) were very country because of the heavy brogueing and color.

I wore a sweater to work almost every day this week. Felt a little bright. Besides, it was warm enough to walk outside for a few mins sans jacket. Couldn't pass up the chance.
