The effect is to make the suit like one of the cut-outs in my avatar, something swapped in or out without relation to anything else.

I like the suit, but at this point, you're not wearing it -- it's wearing you.

id be curious as to what shirt/tie combo youd suggest. Everything ive tried to pair with it makes it FAR too busy and the items compete too much....thoughts?

He's 100% right: a brown/gray peacock is called a hen.

Block colour tie and offset colour pocket square is an option

Like i said, i prefer it like this....and ill continue to let the soot wear me....or a "hen" as you call it. I appreciate the feedback, but it doesnt work for me personally.

This gives a checkered suit a bit more colour variation and overall interest, albeit with a very subdued ps
Jut an idea

I like the way Derek put it together as opposed to the other guy.

Although I do like the way the guy in the green put it together

+1 to the green hacking jacket ... even the odd pocket square looks good.

Tucking a tie into the pants is very poor form particularly if accompanied with a tie pin

Derek's Plaid suit is a perfect fit

Nice shirt man. Loved mine.

^^I REALLY like that shirt. On the rack id probably hate it, but it looks tops here.
post #1169 of 1346

had the shirt for 10 years. It was one of my first serious shirts I bought. I don't really care for grail items but this is as close as it gets in my  closet.

I think his hands in his pockets may have some bearing on the pulling...
