I see nothing wrong with the white t-shirt... more so the shirt over it, TBH.

This is me ... nothing special I'm afraid
I'm pretty much new to all this sartorial stuff...plus I suck at taking photos / appearing in photos...

A cheapish OTR Esprit suit (the arms are definitely too long - need shortening).
Hugo Boss two-tone shirt and Hugo Boss Tie.
Borelli shoes
Hugo Boss socks and belt.
Not visible ... some very kinky Bruno Banani boxers :-)

Hey! an Esprit suit!.....Those looked great in the catalogues...I have yet to see one in HK though...whered you get it?
post #1060 of 1879
I'm currently in Germany and that 's where I got the suit.
I live in a very small town and this was the best suit I could find at short notic vro a NYE bash.

Going to Japan in two weeks on holiday/act finding and then will probably relocate there in April

StyleDef...I think overall you look really good, nothing to apologize for!

To me, the red/red shirt/tie works since the tie has some monochromatic patterning and manages to avoid the "Regis" monochrome look. Maybe the pocket square is a bit too much matching? i dunno, but I can see that being a different color and still bringing the entire outfit together.

today, a mishmash of MC and SW&D..

Gap varsity cardigan
Ben Sherman buttondown
Thick as Thieves one button jacket
Paul Smith gingham check trouser
Paul Smith socks
J&M beefroll oxblood penny loafer

Never knew Esprit made suits; much less ones with ticket pockets (which I'm a fan of). Last time I saw the logo, it was on a sport watch! Most of us will advise against black here... but you look fine. Generally the thought is that there are more interesting colours to use for suits when you're not at a black tie affair. I personally am not a fan of dark red shirts; not very versatile IMHO. Yes, the sleeves are a little long but the length and break on your trousers looks perfect from what I'm seeing here. Basically, I've seen a lot of sartorial disasters in my time on Earth. Rest assured, this is not one of them.

Done, done, and sort of done. I don't have a wool tie on hand (I'd really like one, however), but I just got this one from BR on sale. I know I know, it makes the whole outfit a bit drab. I was simply anxious to wear it and didn't think about the cotton knit ties I have that might have worked better, especially being close to Get Smart's suggestion. If the pictures are too dark, let me know and I'll brighten them up. Think scarmebb will like this bathroom better?

Ok just one more from me I promise. Hopefully this style of suit isn't too frowned upon by the SF community I still love Miami Vice-style.
And yes I know it's not the correct type of white shirt, I should have one without the buttoned collar but it is in the wash. Ugh.



Flame away!
