I still don't get the love for white shirts with brown suits. If ever there was anything that called for a blue shirt, I would have thought that a brown suit would be it.

Pink shirt with a brown suit is also a righteous combination.

Taupe is Dope. Am I learning (ie, good taste)?
For anyone in North America: BUY COPPLEY!! Made right in my home-town of Hamilton.

this adjective is not used nearly enough.

I wore my black knit today, but with a shirt that this thread has already (rightfully?) condemned, so I will spare you. I feel like a million bucks, though. smile.gif

Yes, you have a sharp attention to detail, Greg. But we knew that already!

Here's same suit last week. Is two paisley patterns on different scales tasteful? I thought the gingham pattern of the square was more matchy to the tie pattern somehow, thus this choice...

I don't know if I buy your gendered explanation of color theory, but then again, I could probably talk about gender or color for hours, so I'll skip it. I don't buy anything that tries to explain aesthetics through genetics, though I wouldn't disagree with your point there if it were in cultural terms.

I wear my camel jacket with dark green or lake blue moleskins, rust cords, or (gasp) jeans in blue or white. Again, I think it takes a lighter shade of navy. My blue molies are a touch light, but a pair of navy cords I had was a touch dark. Something in the middle is needed. With the combination you're describing, what color shoes would one wear?

Sir, I wear some old brogues that started their life as tan, but over the last 15 years or so of having been well used outfdoors and polished with contaminated brushes, have achieved a high degree of burnish and are much darker. A safer choice is burgundy or cordovan. In any case, I try to avoid black with any casual combination. the basic structure of the shoe should be oxford to keep with the origins of the combination.

looks fine to me. the PS seems to be a very large scale paisley, almost just looks like a big swirl. nothing like the tie.

Are you running for office?

Three true solids is too much for me, stitchy. I don't subscribe to the foo.gif-theory that any missed opportunity to wear something more interesting is a fail but I think you need a little more interest here.

Sub in a nailshead or birdseye suit, subtly striped (or at least end-on-end) shirt or a tie that isn't so flat and uniform.

I think a very light blue end on end would instantly improve that look
