By that, do you mean that it is aesthetic preference, or there is really something wrong with it?

Yeah, the cloth is out of stock, but I find it surprising that something like that can't be found somewhere else. Even Brooks Brothers sells (or used to sell) a district check jacket that is similar - Pliny has it...
Not the same thing, but perhaps close enough.

JPHardy, that's not bad, but it seems too monochrome (just brown and white besides the blue overcheck). I think the different shades of brown on a cream ground is what makes the Riviera nicer. I have seen several gun clubs that look similar to the Riviera, but they all have a red overcheck, which I don't like. Someone must make something with blue, I haven't found one yet :ppost #10041 of 125649/8/13 at 1:39pmpost #10042 of 125649/8/13 at 2:07pmpost #10043 of 125649/8/13 at 2:10pmpost #10044 of 125649/8/13 at 2:15pmpost #10045 of 125649/8/13 at 2:17pm
So, ix-nay on the irt-shay? What if it was a light blue with a white stripe, with the same widths? Is it perverse that I think that would be worse? I normally have a pretty strong preference for stripes that are the same width. I made an exception for this shirt, but the pattern is my least favorite thing about it.post #10046 of 125649/8/13 at 2:25pmpost #10047 of 125649/8/13 at 2:35pmpost #10048 of 125649/8/13 at 2:37pmQuote:
I would suggest something darker. It doesn't have to match the trousers or anything that mundane, but those are just too light. They look almost athletic. I might have gone with an argyle in grey and navy.post #10049 of 125649/8/13 at 2:44pmQuote:
If I'd had the right argyle for the rest of what I had on, it would have been my choice. I figured plain navy was less elegant than these. I picked up a number of them very cheaply, based on a photo of Fred Astaire in Gentleman, which is a choice which could only be more iGent-ish if it had been a photo of Agnelli.post #10050 of 125649/8/13 at 2:47pmQuote:Originally Posted by YRR92

I honestly can't comment on whether it's more or less correct, historically speaking. Fred Astaire notwithstanding, I simply think it breaks up the line of the trousers too much. I little bit of color in the socks can be good, but a serious break in color or shade has to be done very carefully.
