Lordsuperb, IMO the issue is that particular pattern screams "casual" and doesn't really fit in with a suit and tie look. A smaller scale pattern would have worked considerably better. You absolutely chose the right tie to wear with a bold patterned shirt like that, though.

Damn rights.

Really like that tie, and really dig the stripe pattern on the suit.

IMO it looks a bit better there because you can see less of the tie.

My first post on this thread. Curious to hear what SF's elder statesmen think of the three fits I posted earlier this week :

^ Pretty tough to argue with any of those fits IMO. Would be curious to see a full length shot of the third, though (assuming it is an odd jacket).

Thanks, here's the original post of the third one:

Quality tie - square coordination

After six months, I'm ready for a second attempt. Another odd jacket look; I was able to pick up a Donegal jacket, which you guys suggested (thanks!)

Ideally I think I'd want to work with a slightly darker tie in a shantung silk or linen; though this grenadine is lovely, the scale of the weave is a little too close to the Donegal weave O think.

Did I make par? (Sorry for crap pics- I've had issues finding a good-sized mirror...)

Please heap on the criticism. I'm still very much a novice, and I'm eager to learn!





Just noticed that the tie looks stained in this pic... It's not, of course.

It seems a little busy.

I can see where you're coming from on that one- a more subdued square would've done me good. Perhaps simpler socks as well!
post #12403 of 12675
I think a solid shirt would have gone a long way for the above.
post #12404 of 12675
@SomethingsFishy, this is where a pale blue end-on-end or oxford cloth shirt would have been much better. I'm not generally a fan of multicolored striped shirts like that, but I dislike them more with odd jackets. I think the pairing of the odd jacket and trousers is fine. Tie is okay but I think either a solid tie or something made of wool would complement the odd jacket a lot better.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the yellow trousers.
