I was less concerned about historical correctness than aesthetics, myself. I think Astaire had less contrast than I do, though. What I like about these is that they're a little striking, but not in a "he's wearing pink socks!" way. Worst case scenario, I save them for my new light gray suit.

Wait, what? Those are pink socks?

No, no, they're light gray. I'm saying that when somebody wears pink socks (or bright green, or purple), people's reaction to what they're wearing is dominated by the socks being an unusual color. These aren't so striking as to take more than their share of attention (at least, that's what I want them to be).

Love it UC. I really hope the colors are more accurate in the first picture - I suspect they are.

Ha, just noticed that. The blue shirt is practically washed out in the second pic. shog[1].gif

First pic is accurate.

this is great P. How does your wardrobe fit? I assume jacket's waist were taken in? how about shoulders?

I realize I was not invited to the party, that being said.

I first decide the level of formality based on the days expected events then work through each element with a quick pass/fail determination being mindful of the established elements of the rig.

 

I just mentally scroll through a number of qualifiers. Ths mostly stems from the 5 minutes or so I leave myself to get dressed in the AM.

It helps if these things are all pre qualified when purchasing, I avoid things that don't work with a great deal of what I have already.

Dat collar.


But is the breast pocket really large / squareish or is it just a weird photo?

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.

I think it would look better if the white stripe were a bit thinner.

Otherwise, I agree that you're better off with white / blue stripes of equal width.

35lbs? Where did you store it? If I lost that much I would look like a concentration camp survivor and I am bulkier than you.
