i don't understand will's aversion to blue shirts with gray suits

I agree with blue and charcoal not being optimal, but mid grey and light blue looks good.

I'm curious what others think about this. I recently received my first real charcoal suit, and I frequently find that the combinations that work well with my lighter greys don't look quite right with it? For example, here's yesterday:

Is Will right? Are blue shirts the culprit? Or is it blue shirts and ties together with charcoal? Or is there some other trick to successfully pairing items with charcoal suits?

Was just wondering about this as well. Seems strange...

Charcoal needs a darker tie, IMO. Possibly slightly less-light blue shirts work better, too -- not sure.

I think he has run out of things to talk about, it seems just downright silly to me.

RE: Wool / cashmere ties

I used to really like them but I'm getting tired of them. The knots always look messy and they pil like a mofo. Any takers? I've got probably half a dozen from Rubinacci, Borrelli, Kiton, et al.

Thank you whnay. I wear it way too often, though, as I found out a while ago (thanks to this forum) that my old tie collection doesn't work with odd jackets at all. Luckily I have just ordered some new Cappellis...

 

BTW, before anyone mentions it, those pents are admittedly sitting a bit higher than I'd like. The high waist and elongated leg line looks great once the jacket is thrown into the mix, though.

I think the pents look great--where are they from?

And I hear you about the tie collection. I still don't feel like I have enough for odd jackets.

I have the opposite problem, so many odd jacket ties not enough business time ties.

They're RTW from a local department store, but have been extensively tailored. Price was decent for a Vitale Barberis flannel.
