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?

A powdery blue isn't optimal. But so long as it's a greyish blue, I think it works well.

So I have no idea where he got that from. Or how he could fail to dislike grey or tan shirts.

If he'd said it here, and in an authoritative way, it could've been next week's dogma.

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.
I don't need any, have plenty, but I'm sorry to hear about the pilling, that has never happened with any of mine, not even the cheapish ones.
