Experimenting with a Nehru shirt:
Things I like:
- it's a very different, fresher vibe to normal shirt/tie looks. It's a very crisp look/feel; I actually feel "sharper".
- it's vaguely futuristic... or perhaps retro-futuristic might be more accurate, or even quasi-ecclesiastical. I like the "strangeness" a lot. It felt like I should be running some kind of orbital space platform.
- obviates the need to think about ties and squares, but in a good/positive choice way not a lazy way.
Things I'm not sure about:
- it's seriously different, perhaps excessively so for my lifestyle, though it hasn't attracted any askance glances so far.
Comments very welcome, either way.post #75363 of 787224/14/14 at 5:57ampost #75364 of 787224/14/14 at 5:57amQuote:
Thanks man.

Hmm, I always think of Nehru collars as being very formal, given their use in weddings. Interesting.
Is this question meant for me?
If so, I'm not sure I get the question. If you mean at the collar, then yes, the band is high enough to appear above the jacket, same as a normal shirt's band would be.post #75370 of 787224/14/14 at 6:30amQuote:
Do you think a turtleneck would have gone with or is that incongruous as well due to the formality?post #75371 of 787224/14/14 at 6:38amQuote:Originally Posted by ridethecliche

Yes, thanks, it was meant for you. I hit "reply" rather than quote. Sorry. I was merely wondering whether someone standing behind you would know you're wearing a shirt.

HF, I think the biggest issue with this fit is that you're wearing a chalk stripe suit, the epitome of business/city suits. Why not try the shirt with a plain light/medium grey suit if you're going for the futuristic look? Maybe something with a little mohair in it?post #75375 of 787224/14/14 at 7:10am
Thanks. It's very interesting hearing that; I would have thought the turtle would have been more controversial. I wonder if getting a higher band on the Nehru might alleviate some of the issue...
I have to say, I have a feeling that I will still wear it with formal suits anyway, just because it feels good on me and I like the look. But that doesn't mean I'm ignoring the feedback; keep it coming as it's useful to know the balance of popular opinion, regardless of whatever I finally decide.
The idea of a light/medium grey suit is good. I was thinking about trying it with a plain navy 2B too. I also have a checked grey mohair/wool DB awaiting alteration and was going to try that with it too, so that chimes with your suggestion too.
To Ac - yes, they can tell I'm wearing a shirt. I see what you mean now.
