while i quite like your fits, lufty, do you have a very small neck size?

Thought I might post in here for some possible critique. Even if good taste seems to be limited to ties, here's a casual fit for consideration. Thoughts?

Well, this could be a blazer and not a suit.

I personally don't like BD shirt and ties

i always thought the general opinion here was, that it is a very american look, and that if done right, it is just fine.

usually tho, i am in the gdl camp above, much prefer BDs with a SC or sweater and no tie. today i am wearing one with a sweater.

It is a suit. I have begun wearing them with sportcoats and suits and often with a tie.

Typically a knit tie but today tried something different.

I also like BDs most sans tie, but I'm not offended when they're worn with a tie, or even a suit. But rr's pic compared to bb's shows the problem, which is that without the tie, you get the nice roll of the collar...buttoned up with a tie, that disappears.

bb - I like it, but I think I would have gone with a different square. The jacket has a reddish cast to it, and you've got red stripes. I'd try to "cool it down" with some other color for the PS. Maybe something in navy.

rr - good taste, if unadventurous. I like the color and texture of the shirt.

It can look good - BD with a nice roll and a simple tie.

But in order to pull it off, I think everything needs to be more relaxed. The suit should have a softer shoulder. No pin or pencil stripes if it's worsted.

I don't especially like the look and haven't found a shirtmaker who makes a BD that looks good with a tie. I've seen some on the internetz but not in real life.

Had a predominately navy PS that I chose against last minute. The coat does have a slight red and tan undertone to it, so I felt the PS brought that out, while eggplant stripes called on the green in the jacket, keeping things grounded and more autumnal. Have to try with a blue next time. Thanks for the input.

Not classic or sedate, but I believe this is a tasteful casual rig. Tie is forest green wool.

no need to make any excuses, it looks good. Stay strong in the face of adversity.

The smallest one generally finds in RTW — 14.5.

I hate them with suits - however, I understand it's a very classic American business look, so it might be fine there. I love to wear them with sportcoats and casual ties though.
