Would do purple paisley or satin Pin dot tie to complete the Gatsby look.

Perhaps. But, perhaps not if you knew what the colors were.

Was he rocking the garish colors at that age? I'm far from an expert, but I was under the impression that his palette got wilder as he got older.

Interestingly enough I recently picked up this 7-fold ancient madder:



Which I now more frequently wear with the ensemble above that Hendrix thinks is horrible. Hopefully he approves now lest I have to kill myself confused.gif

Do you? If so, could you share with the less enlightened members, such as me?

I was under the same impression.

Close Bris, I'd probably go with something brighter. That tone is more suitable to tweeds, IMO. I love the ancient madders though I'm sure they're universally hated on SF. I often wear light blue shirts with a contrast collar, paired with a bright navy pindot and charcoal chalk stripe, but I don't bother posting that look on here, where basically ifit's done in Naples it'll pass here, otherwise good luck.

If RLPL offers it I'll likely do a matching cashmere patterned shirt and tie paired with a tweed suit or sportcoat, but this forum will not see it.

I am a big fan of pattern mixing, especially as of late. When i do, i try to follow a couple basic rules: a deeper toned tie v the color of the shirt, various subtle patterns, and somehow pull the colors together, usually through the secondary or tertiary colors in the outfit. for example, this photo. The light brown colors pull the outfit together. And as you can see, there is a slight edge of a pop color in the green pocket square. Effortless.pattern2.jpg

I feel you. This is why I stopped posting new pics. I will say, however, SF has been successful in changing the way some dudes dress. Not always for the better.

RJE and others -
I think the problem in this thread and in this forum in general is not too many fits posted, it is lack of pointed and direct criticism, and overabundance of general, vague criticism. There are lots of "wow you guys have no idea what the fuck you're doing posts" and not enough "that looks terrible" posts. I appreciate that you put up a very nice post with a lot of examples of what you thought looked good and didn't. But now when you're saying everybody sucks (except you presumably), it's hard to know what or who you're talking about. When I posted a few pages back, I put together something I thought was kind of adventurous and was hoping I get some feedback on it, but I just got a couple of thumbs and some nice feedback from edmorel. Posts that give more specific strategies, such as FC's practical combinations thread, are extremely useful, although they do start from the premise that many SF users need a lot of help. But I suggest that we try to get away from posts whose sole point is to state how generally poorly dressed everyone in this forum is. I don't think it's see useful and it's getting boring.

I tried doing "that looks terrible" and was ostracized, even tho I was right.

But I will say that what looks terrible to one may look great to another. Some are too bound by "the rules" to allow themselves to appreciate some really good fits.

I would value a "that looks terrible", especially from an experienced poaster, even if unexplained. Of course a more expansive reaction is more valuable, but anything is better than "everyone here sucks and just needs to copy me more"

I stopped posting pics a while back due to the large amounts of back patting and not enough constructive criticism-especially when more senior members were pining for folks to change to CBDesque fits. Took the wind out of a lot of dudes sails. Not me tho, no way bro.
