I actually wished I had a black suit to wear with it today. First time I've thought that!

 

Other options apart from that and the ones mentioned by Monkeyface above, that I think might work: tan or tobacco linen suit, possible mid-blue blazer in a similar sort of fabric. Or mid slim grey trousers and a black leather jacket perhaps. I've been meaning to get one... :stirpot: 

 

 

ooh... now this idea I Iike!!

 

You know, the more I think about it, the more I think I was unconsciously chanelling some kind of Blade Runner-esque vibe by pairing it with a suit. I do love that movie. Was there something similar in Gattaca too? Can't remember.

 

Anyway, now this theme has been made conscious to me, through your and AAS's posts, I think I have some ideas of how to deploy it in a more directed way within that theme next time.

 

I think Gattaca had spearpoint collars, but a nehru collar would definitely fit with the spirit of that movie.

Nice look. Is this a suit or SC? If the latter what type of trousers are you wearing?

Me too. I would welcome a shift away from the banality of the (much loved) solid grenadine...

Too early for this jacket?

Could this be one of those European/American differences which occasionally crop up here?  I used to sail as a young man, and I can testify that in the U.S. a navy DB with a cream turtleneck was pretty common at yacht clubs here during the autumn, so that look is familiar to me.  I've never seen a Nehru collar with a DB in real life, on the other hand.

 

Cheers,

Yes, this is why I'd asked to be honest.

 

In all honesty, I think the nehru collar is an out of place/foreign concept to an american audience more so than is to a british one. I don't think that it's solely the reason people were unhappy with your fit, but I'm not totally surprised by the reception.

Thanks! It's a twill of cotton Cucinelli jacket. I wear it with a pair of jeans and a pair of EG Rye.

Me personally, I would never wear any knitwear under a suit ever, partly cos I live in a hot place, partly cos I hardly own any knitwear and partly cos my name is not Cyril Figgis. But as HF demonstrated with his later photo, although I'm not a fan, his roll neck works much better than the grandad shirt.

@HF I have NEVER seen a band collar shirt at a wedding. On the odd occasion I see one worn formally, like Samuel L Jackson with a black version and black tie at the oscars, it makes the wearer look either like they're trying too hard to be trendy, or that they're just clueless, none of which obviously applies to you, so while I admire your spirit of adventure and experimentation I would consign this one to the 'oops' department!

@Cleav 

I do not know what you're doing in the 2nd pic.

Maybe that should be your signature pose! J/K

But I love your peak lapel suit. I am picking up a suit very similar to it so thanks for giving me ideas on how to combo a shirt and a tie with the suit.

HF - I too think that collar would look much more at home with a SB suit. Something slim and with smaller lapels. Its really more of an SWD look, but I think it will look much more coherent.

They're pretty common under a sherwani or similar, within an Indian context. Obviously in that setting, the collar of the sherwani frames the shirt differently as you don't really see much of it beyond the top button (and sometimes not even that). So there's more of a central focus. Which leads me to another thought, related to stitchy's point...

I'm thinking that too. But I'm also thinking of swapping the top button for a black one, to add some central focus back the shirt.

 

The other option would be to turn it into a double buttonhole suitable for the use of a decorative stud, for the same reason.

 

Thoughts?

@luv2breformed - no straight on pics of that Kamakura, but check the spoiler below for today's. I would say it is a semi-spread. They also offer a cutaway, and I believe @UncleBeebo has a few.

 

@Holdfast - Not my style (shocking), but I salute your endeavor!

 

Pretty simple today. Thoughts on the square? The blues are actually slightly different shades, but it might be too much even with all the dots.
