Is This Silver Suit Out Of Style? - Page 2

Silverhawk, very nice.  smile.gif

 

Okay, so hypothetically if I keep this suit, what color shirt should I wear with it?  I have a bunch of shirts, all except black which seems like the best color to wear with it.  It would be to church, and with a tie.

I'm wondering o nwhat occasions can you wear a silver suit like that?

I can always wear it on Father's Day.  I'm a dad of four and on Father's Day I can get away with doing whatever the heck I want.

The colors are pretty close (to me), he's got black buttons on his though.  Maybe I should switch out the buttons...

If you keep it, just pair it with a light blue or white shirt, but don't go black (see http://www.styleforum.net/t/252146/black-shirt-tie or any of the other threads about black dress shirts)...

Thanks for the tip, Jawboneofa!  I don't want to look gangster, that's for sure.  I have a nice white shirt I can wear with it, but my blue is kind of medium blue, not really light blue.

 

What about turquoise or pink?

There should be a contrast in color when you wear a dark suit so you don't look washed out, pair it with a light colored shirt/or tie.

That makes sense to me, "SilverHawk" doesn't look very good in the silver shirt and silver tie with the silver suit.

Okay, I got the suit today and it's definitly going back.  Too much John Travolta/Saturday Night Fever for me.

 

I'm exchanging it for a black shiny sharkskin.  I liked the quality of the suit, it's just the color was terrible on me.

In your original post, you noted that you are white.

Could you elaborate?

Try a suit from H&M or even *gasp* Express, you can get them in the $150-200 range, they are very modern cut and some even have that certain "sheen" to 'em. If your going for that attention-grabbing look-at-me look I think they would suffice.

I'm a light skinned (warm skin tone actually) caucasian.  I know skin tone matters when it comes to colors, that's why I mentioned it.
