What's a fellow to do if he works in a warm office (and thus won't always be wearing a jacket or sweater) but has a bit of a beer gut and thus belts look terrible? I really hate the look (on me, given my shape) of a shirt tucked into pants held up with a belt, since the pants always migrate southward. Thus, I prefer to wear suspenders. I understand that suspenders were long considered underwear and thus not to be seen, but then again the same was true of the waistline in general (i.e. a shirt tucked into pants was always covered by a jacket or waistcoat).

More to everyone's liking? See? I like gray flannel too. Just not all the time.

Trousers should be much lighter, tie and PS different entirely IMHO.

I have to tell you, I could give two sh*ts about feedback. Yes, advise does have an influence what I wear, but I still wear what I want. And I happen to think gray trousers are ok. Not great. But ok.

That's quite evident.

It would appear that the torch has been passed. The best part is that I have no idea why pB does (did?) this.

CM, I don't like that you're pairing a warm gray up top with a cool gray on the bottom.

 

You tend to wear, like, shades of the same color in the jacket and trousers, and then an accent color in a tie or a square. Kind of an unusual default approach.

 

Scatterbrain, I detest jacquard striped ties, and the last combination is really bad. If the first two were repps and you'd gone for a white linen (or cream silk :devil:) square, they'd be pretty good in my book.The first SC falls into the "not enough for a sportcoat, too much for a suit" area.

 

I took some of Manton's advice (though he will hate this shirt). Maybe not something I'd be posting in this thread otherwise, so I'll spoiler it. Would still like feedback, of course.

I hear you on that one. My approach is different, and usually I wouldn't have gone with gray trousers, but they are ok sometimes. I have accepted the fact that not everyone likes my style. The more mature people around here give their advice, have discussions with me, and provide interesting stimulation. The others just complain that I don't follow advise. Go fig.

Appreciate the feedback.
