Deets on shirt please...
Thanks for the analysis EliodA, very perspicacious! I recall one SF member saying that a lot of things look better "when wearing Sean Connery." I am about the palest person you could imagine, yes. Here's a recent pic in the same suit, with my ghastly visage included:
I haven't yet delved into the issue of complexion, but I would be interested in hearing how you think I could improve this particular fit for my complexion. Thanks again.
^ you've got more of a Daniel Craig complexion.
I'm not sure how to improve, the others will be better at that, but what was said was true - it looks great on Connery because of his darker complexion. I'm not 100% but a light blue shirt might tone down the contrast a bit, instead of the white.
First of all, yout suit isn't as dark as it appeared on my crappy phone, so the contrast is less stark than I thought at first. Still, I think the contrast is too high and the lack of colour makes your skin look even paler than it is. I think ETB's advice for a blue shirt is a good one (he's also right about your likeness to Daniel Craig!). Go for a light but rather bright blue, it will make your skin look more vibrant and will accentuate your eyes. Perhaps pair it with a tie with rust or brown in it or so, anything that goes well with your hair colour. As Alan Flusser writes, the object of your outfit should be to lead the viewers attention to your face. For example, have a look at pics of SF member Anden, he also has a pale complexion with somewhat reddish hair and I think he's a master at dressing to suit his complexion.

One of my co-workers asked me if my jacket was seersucker today. Two other coworkers said they didn't know what seersucker was. Culture ain't culture no more.
Can I? (Click to show)
Yes and I'm wearing it during the spring/summer. It's still cool in the spring sometimes. I imagine I could wear a single heavier jacket, but I'd rather wear a lighter jacket and a light layer underneath. I think it makes more sense.
Standing next to the 1928 Ahrens-Fox fire engine that was at the local historical preservation group's cocktail party and showing that I read the article in the Wall Street Journal about the current unfortunate trend towards wearing "matchy-matchy" colors.
