i really think, aside from all the things vox did well, and all the stuff he bought, his strongest point was fit. and i think that that might be the best strong point to have if you have to have only one.

If nothing else, it makes everything look intentional. That goes a long way.

There's barely no information at his left side in the full shot, the shirt looks like white because of that, the close-up shot shows how similar the colors truly are.

he is clearly standing in the shade in that close up, and as well his chin is casting a shadow over the shirt/jacket. they are not the same and from any further away, irl, and the shirt dissolves to a clearly lighter blue than the suit and tie. its good.

Yeah, he's overexposed in one, and perhaps a little underexposed in the other. It's all relative. The blues look too close in the close-up, and they don't show up in the long shot. The truth may well be somewhere in between.

 

I'm willing to bet that the gingham resolves to a color not unlike the ground of Vox's shirt at a distance -- perhaps even a little lighter. Could I be wrong? Of course. Either way, the major issue here is at close range.

I think this is probably closest to reality:



That's about three feet away. At six feet, it looks mostly like a medium blue with some texture. Twenty feet, it might as well be solid.
post #9127 of 12602
i still think its right. significantly lighter than the suit and tie.
post #9128 of 12602

That's much better! I drop all my objections to the shirt and I'll agree with SB, the shirt choice now pleases me more than Vox's. However, the tie is yet too close to the jacket and the handkerchief is matchy.

But you should work on your tie dimple.
See Sugarbutch's above.

Naturally, I like it.

Funny you mention the dimple. Once when I saw Axelman at the tailor I noticed he had a very nonchalantly tied tie. Not badly, just not super fuddy-duddy like I am used to doing and I thought it looked really good. Much more natural.

Tie is grenadine and PS i white linnen. Shirt is light blue with white in a really neat pattern that looks like solid from 3 feet.

I've said this before, but I find the staggering number of Style Forum members who have goatees to be somewhat troublesome.
