I like the fit. You perfected the sleeve roll and have the right number of buttons undone.

 

Maybe a bit more contrast between the shorts and shirt?

Either way, well done!

Wow, I love that shirt. Great colour.

 

Would you ever try pairing it with some deep navy shorts?

 

I think with the grey shorts here a nice pink shirt would look even better.

AAS, I like the fun shorts more than the fun shirt.

AAS your shorts would look much better without the ironed in creases.

Thanks.  I had navy shorts on earlier, but I didn't like the way it looked.  The shorts are light blue not grey.

Good news: I have two more pair of fun shorts.  Bad news: I'm wearing a fun shirt today.

Maybe.  I'll see next time I wear a pair.

Thanks for the feedback!

 

Unfortunately I had only 2 shorts with me, and the other pair wasn't a good match. But yeah, in the future I'll probably do something similar using beige / khaki shorts instead.

I see that people here like this look a lot, but it is going over my head, what is the special thing here? is it just the collar? or the broad placket?

Look at the collar; there isn't a separate collar band. It's designed to worn casually without a tie and spreads open nicely as in the photo because of that. I have several Loro Piana shirts with a similar collar design; they call it their Andre collar. They're interesting to iron: you can simply press the collar flat/open and then just turn it down and lightly very press in the centre of the back, and the rest of it flops nicely into a relaxed shape. I generally prefer wearing them without a jacket, but they will take a linen suit well too, IMO. I see some differences in the Andre LP design compared to the (presumably) bespoke one in the photo, but the core principle is the same I think. Other people call it different things IIRC (e.g. sports collar, polo collar, camp collar, etc, etc). One-piece collar is at least a straightforward/understandable description of the design!

for me it really has nothing to do with the one piece collar. its more the look in general. great casual shirt, neat button configuration and awesome buttons. cool pants with a single forward pleat and button tabs. the colors are great together and it seems to fit spot on. wonder what the shoes are. its more the sum of the parts than any single stand alone part. for me anyways.

Shirt is unbuttoned, just doesn't look it in the pic.

AAS, someone already said it, I do however agree that funny shorts with solid shirt looks way better than funny shirt.

post #13497 of 16821
shirt looks big/boxy, especially against the slim/tapered pants. colors seem to work tho.

also, no need to spolier your own fit pics.
post #13498 of 16821

It's a bit big yeah, ordered and found out later that they cut very generously. Had to try doing it as a spoiler anyway. First time for everything.

post #13499 of 16821
do you have a tailor that could slim it down? it looks like it could be a great shirt.

be proud!!! no more spoilers for new fits. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Well the guy I've been to so far seems "OK" but I'm gonna scout for someone who's great soon enough.

I love the collar on it. Sounded like I was talking about some heavy stuff but it's actually just CTyrwhitt so I'll likely buy one/several other(s).

Light blue/white stripe OCBD not clearly visible. Pents weren't actually so crumpled and the sleeve is after a long day.

Previous post -- yesterday. This -- today. Wanted to redeem myself for the overlarge shirt so I snapped a shot.
