That is like the one shirt that Damien Woody always wears with that awful giant tattersall on it. I think it is his only shirt.

They're whimsical.

That really does look like a napkin tucked into your shirt.

Do you wear a like a size 34 jacket?

You should definitely try a thinner tie. I think it may be a revelation.

Those colors sound fairly awful for shirts in general but I like gingham in everything from micro to large, though mainly in the summer.

I too have the same wool challis tie from Drakes. Mine is a different colorway though, burnt orange ground with blue and green circles. Wearing it today with a mid grey woolen flannel from Harrison's.

I have 3.25 to 3.5" ties, and rarely think about proper width. Also, I despise tiny knots and err toward the phatniss.

I'll take a pic with a 3.25 & 3.5" tie side by side, as soon as I take off my tool belt.

Almost forgot - 38 jacket.

Thanks for the answers guys (just quoting one). I have to say I posted in the "good taste" thread because I am looking for traditional/informed information not your own taste. I recently bought a patchwork tunic/, an oversized reworked sweatshirt that looks like a dress, a silk scarf with allover candle print, a patchwork dress shirt with mesh collar and one of those allover floral from Dries Van Noten. I don't need help in wearing somethinleg like a gingham shirt, just wondering what are the "rules" regarding them.

That's a much more "structured" (read padded) shoulder than I ever seen on you.

There is no reason why green gingham can't be used in a "good taste" combination, but it would call for the other elements being sedate. Maybe a dark blue linen or flannel suit, or a blazer and gray trousers, with a black knit tie. The English traditionally used boldly colored shirts (usually stripes) with austere suits.

No extension in the shoulder, they are all me. In fact no padding at all. I am quite square-shouldered.
