Awful black derbies.  Thankfully we know it's not Noodles because he's afraid orange ties clash with his...orangeness.

Here is a quick pic of me trying to follow @EliodA's advice re: "blue shirts are better for my complexion."

I wasn't going to post this until I saw Pingson's fit today, which is similar to my fit but done better. EliodA, I know that you suggested a brown tie (like Pingson is wearing), but I currently only have one brown tie, and it is wool herringbone, so not CBD enough for this type of fit. I initially tried this with a grey grenadine fina, but went with my burgundy fina instead. Here's my last try with this suit, wearing a white shirt and silver tie (and taken with a better camera):

Thanks everyone for the helpful comments you've given me in the past.

 

Edit: Is this kind of thing more suited to the Noodles thread?

far right for me.

lay PS over your hand, and make a circle with your thumb and pointer. pull square from center through ring like a napkin. fold in half and stuff.

Much better, I think. And burgundy with navy is a classic combination

This is a great page that summarise everything related to pocket squares.

Sorry Mimo, I'm with Stichy on this one. No square is better than the wrong square....

White square is safe.  No square is dull. :)

 

CS, burgundy is perfection with that line up - looking good!

Depends on what you are wearing: with a navy suit - yes, with tweed - no.

A small bird of some sort fulfills the role in those circumstances.

Yeah, agreed. Tie too quiet for the square. Tips the eye a bit too much to the square.

Trouser inseam is a little short given the leg opening, but that's an easy fix.

Would really like this if the tie & square patterns were swapped over. As is, the palette is still very nice. But the pattern balance feels a little off.
