I understand the crap-giving and maybe stitch could profit greatly from a linen PS but I really understand his real-world point of view as well. I don't wear the ones I have very often at all. And I still need a white linen PS.

I'll play, in good taste?

More of a A/W combo I know.

Yeah, the tie is a bit autumn. I'm not sure about the shirt either. Are there smaller stripes inside the wide stripe?

I'd say it's good taste. I love the tie. Getting one almost identical soon. What are the deets? Maker? Construction?

 

I think it could be argued the PS isn't right for the combo but I like it.

Shirt + tie + bright colors make it too busy.

Not a fan of multistriped shirts. Everything else looks great.

institches:

 

I love the close-up of the first fit. The subtle textures and patterns are beautiful together, and the tie looks lovely -- a little unseasonable, IMHO, but not too bad. I don't think it's quite as successful in the full-length, because everything resolves to a solid without a lot of texture. I think the same shirt/tie with a gray herringbone jacket and tan or brown trousers would work even better. I can see Looking to improve's point about the shoes, but I'm not sure if it bugs me. You have that awesome pair of G&G monks in a cooler brown, I think, and maybe those plus a tie with a little more pattern would help things.

 

A patterned pocket square might make this one work better for me in terms of pattern balance, but I know too much to bother suggesting that to you. smile.gif

 

The second is impeccable, and as far as I can tell very much the kind of thing this thread was originally meant for. CBD but still very elegant.

 

MZhammer:

 

I really admire the tie and square combination -- a nice, but not matchy, palette of warm colors with just enough cool tones in there to work with the blue suit and blue shirt, and the patterns work together very well. The suit's lapel seems to roll very nicely. You lose me with the fancy-striped shirt. A mid-blue bengal stripe, or maybe (this one is solidly NOT Manton-approved, from what I recall) a white shirt with a blue pinstripe would be an improvement.

i guess one might call it that, though i have no intention of wearing the jacket alone.

it was made by tiberas clothing. they are an AV here and they did a fantastic job on this custom suit for me. i wrote a review on it not too long ago in the WAYWRN thread when i first wore it. i defo recommend them. lots of fabric choices too.
post #9432 of 13589
^^^^^ thanks stitch, i will check them out.

your last recommendation to me for field's was great so i will definitely check tiberas too
post #9433 of 13589
my pleasure. and im glad fields worked out for you.

Good stuff, Steeches.

A linen PS would make the look.

Thanks, the tie is actually a BB makers silk. Just their basic style which I prefer the width on.

Thanks for the critique on the shirt. I need to up my shirt options significantly for sure. Would a solid blue have been better in this case?
