Acute - too many patterns there bud. Example, lose the socks and stick with a solid and swap out the shirt for a solid blue ocbd and then you've got enough going on... it's just too much!

Dockers - I still maintain that the zip-up isn't bad, it's just not congruent with that type of fit. Shirt says beach, pants are workwear-ish, and zip-up is sleek urban, all give or take. Meaning wear that zip up with white tshirt and jeans, wear that shirt with looser linen type pants, wear the khakies with chunkier sweaters or slim polos etc. Just a general idea.

You're missing the point. @An Acute Style's fit is meant to be a riot of patterns. The balancing of striped, checked, and printed patterns is actually quite masterful.

 

Acute, don't change a thing.

This is interesting. Here was my thought process:

 

1) Shirt - beachy.

2) Pants - actually a super light cotton, very beachy. But that does not come through in the picture, so I could see why you said workwear-ish.

3) Jacket - I get where you are coming from with the urban vibe, but I actually view the jacket (which is navy) as something akin to a better version of a sailing windbreaker, if that makes sense.

 

That was just how I put it together, but I appreciate your comments. If I post a pic with that jacket again, I will try it your way. I'm assuming you would recommend standard dark jeans + white tee?

There is something to be said about the old well-made garments I have, I am more proud of the fact I have stuck with them!

Good response, I get the logic. Doesn't always come through in the pics though. For a solid dark zip-up like that, I'd say the pants have to be mid tone to dark, so nothing super light wash. Sleek and slimish. And for a shirt, either a v-neck or low crew neck tshirt or something.

I was trying to balance them all.  I think the solid shirt and socks would work nicely.

Thanks.  That's what I was shooting for.

A little tight in the waist?

Thick wallet inside the right chest pocket X unstructured jacket. You can actually see the outline of the wallet and the fabric pull.

My biggest complaint about Boglioli is that they fit way too short for my build.

Hey guy I got residency interview coming up that I am trying to assemble a wardrobe for the social /before interview. For the past 3 years I either dressed in scrub/t shirts or suits (cufflinks and everything) basically nothing in between. The goal is to look nice but not too glaring.

 

I am thinking about getting

  1. Dark jean
  2. Light chinos
  3. Blue blazer
  4. Button down plaid dress shirt

For more casual

Dark Jean-tennis/boat shoe-polo/shirt-w or w/o tie/blue blazer

For more formal

Light Chinos-Loafer/Walnut Brogue Captoe-shirt-w or w/o tie/blue blazer

What do you think on combination?

 

Also what do you guys think about "sports shirt" vs dress shirt. Can you wear dress shirt with jeans, or sports shirt with chinos?

I'm sorry. What size are you? I'll gladly unload you of any Boglioli as it's my favorite brand. smile.gif
