Fair enough! I think you may have exposed a weakness in my tie collection. Most of the more matte stuff I have is wool.

If I had to pick two classifications of people more suited to Styleforum than village idiots and attention whores, I'd be pretty well fucked.

I think shiny works best when there's less of it. Can look good with a three-piece. Much more difficult when there's a big expanse of it dangling down your chest.

Any suggestions for a hanky to go with my last fit? I didn't really like how white linen looked. Cream silk? Better with no hank at all?

 

The suit is close to charcoal and the shirt is blue, now that I think of it.

 

BTW, sorry about the last derailment - hope things get back on track.

Well this requires asking then, can anyone give me a recommendation of where to find the kinds of ties you guys are talking about? I don't know what to ask for other than "non shiny silk ties" and that isn't helping me much.

from yesterday.

not a self stripe, its a fine herringbone that is barely visible from further back.

Stitch, I have a VERY similar jacket. Same general colors, herringbone, everything. Curious what trousers you selected with this.

Is an embroidery as such in good taste? Huntsman is willing to do it for a slight up-charge. I don't foresee using a boutonniere.

that looks dumb to me, faux-military.

I struggle to imagine when it would look good. Perhaps OK for a smoking jacket or that sort of thing, but not for day-to-day wear.

Interesting. Didn't know it was a military tradition to have such embroideries. Will definitely sit on this a bit -- I can see however, why it'd be a little ostentatious.

The shirt is out of place with the coat and tie. You've got enough going on with the tie and jacket, keep it simple with the shirt - solid light blue (or even pink) poplin or chambray.

thanks, whnay. will try that next time. light blue chambray/end on end most likely.

btw, if you see the fit in the spoiler, the pattern really is not visible from a little further out, but i understand what you mean about too much going on. thanks again.

Thanks stitch! That gives me a few ideas.
