PB, an old picture from the forum. Blue suit with a black knit. I think it looks pretty good.

spoilered the picture just in case ppl feel it is not in good taste.

My linen have been holding up for quite a few years. I only wear them in the summer though. And they soften with wear. I do have a pair of linen pants that I like a lot and am wearing down the seat quite thin. shog[1].gif I'll have to find a replacement soon.

Yeah, not really working for me, especially with a blue shirt. But, thank you for doing that.

EDIT: I just saw this:

Blue shirt
Muted tie
Added PS
Thoughts?

This solidifies my resistance to wearing a blue shirt with that tie. I am interested in hearing others' thoughts, though.

I think it is the blue shirt. I think an ecru or other off-white might be better.

Here is the original with just the PS.  Although the creme doesn't work with the white shirt now I actually think something like this with a little yellow/gold could help the tie "blend" a little.  However, I seem to remember you don't like pocket squares beyond white linen.

Why not a cream or ecru shirt and a white hanky pocket square?
