Anything navy would do.

Then go play and have fun with patterns once you have staples you like.

Yup. I agree on the solids. I was told the same thing by the person who said the Suit Supply suit looked nice and should consider. 

I am waiting for this beauty to restock. I almost wanted to mug Murl when he said he had this.

Disclaimer: I bought the suit online and just threw on a random shirt and tie to check the fit of the suit when I opened the package. I know it's way too busy to actually wear this combo.

Is that a lilac over check on the suit?

Anyways plain white, lilac, light blue shirts.

Grenadine, knit and pindot ties. Others can add more.


@The Noodles get a plain Grey suit already!

RTC, I was going to reply to you at some length, but then I thought better of it.

I don't know why, but I cannot think of anyone here that I end up being so far from eye to eye with than you. When I say something serious you seem to go out of your way to disagree or take a jab, and when I make a joke you seem to be annoyed by it or miss it completely.

To that end, I'm going to cease replying to you for the forseeable future. I don't think it's doing either of us any good, and if in fact you really are here to learn how to dress better, there are plenty of people outside of myself that can guide you quite effectively.

The navy one first. Wish they made a lighter version of this. I look terrible in this shade of grey

Says who? Why do I have a feed of awesome South Korean guys wearing that same shade. Don't be that guy always in Navy suit.

Noodles, the Eidos suits are very nice, but the price difference between full retail Eidos and formosa is not that big right? Like $800?

 

The pants are very slim though, so that should work for you. Might be worth it to order the suit and see how it looks, if you can miss the funds for a while. If it looks great you'll have another brand that you know fits you, if it doesn't you can return it and get your money back. Win-win?

I am North Korean...:rimshot: 

 

I gave that shade of grey a try. Wife despised it. I want one more staple navy suit and then I will play around.

Nice blog btw.

Orlebar Brown all day for swimwear. Shouldn't you already have a pair to emulate your hero Daniel Craig @The Noodles?

:puzzled:

 

I swear I'm not trying to be difficult. I guess I could do without making the sweeping generalizations I've made a couple times re:you. Blah, I've actually learned some shit (read: lots) from you though, so apologies.

 

Oy vey.

Dude, if you listened to everything she said you'd be wearing slim fit skinny lapel suits. She hates the formosa!

That would require me to shave the stupid pubic hair that extends to my thighs.

She had the audacity to say that my ill-fitting Zegnas looked better than the Formosa. WTF

:rotflmao:OB does make longer 8? or 9'' inseam trunks

 

Personally I prefer the mid-thigh Bulldog cut

 

Edit: Yep, the Dane cut has a 10'' inseam

It's actually a light blue over check. Would a green tie clash with the blue over check?
