I love the tie, but I think it would be a bit better with navy. I normally really like your stuff.

Thank you.

I've tried it with navy, and it never looks good to me. In fact, this mid-to-light gray is the only thing in my closet I really love with it. I may try it with the navy and post to see if that makes things better for others, though.

True but suits were only part of it.

 

The original statement was "Sweater vests/cardigans under suits/jackets are in good taste if executed properly - examples abound:" followed by examples. To which "in stiches" asked "any examples of dudes under 70 years old?" which is what you see above tongue.gif

 

This may or may not have any relevance but the first outfit I posted was a cardigan under a blue blazer, the second was a cardigan under a suit. I don't feel the need to stop doing so but it's interesting to see the comments nonetheless.

 

Here's one with a suit for you smile.gif:

 

It would seem that cardigans are more casual and better worn with odd jackets or more casual suits rather than more tailored suits.

Cardigans with suits:



And under 70 (by four years).

Yes. That's why I wrote "with these kinds of business-y worsteds."

I'm pretty anti-sweater in general. More so with a business suit.

It's a suit, not a SC. Shirt stripe is light blue in case the pic is off.

I don't like shirts with grey in them unless they are casual chambray, or end-on-end shirts. Also, I don't like the width of the stripes. I much prefer bengal stripes where the color and white are the same width. That to me looks like a casual shirt and it is paired with a white TV fold, which is off.
