Good Natured Advice Thread (improving a business wardrobe) - Page 1172

Sadly yes.

Here are my observations in SF (waywrn):

Jackets - Lots of variety

Shirts - Mainly blue based

Ties - Lots of variety

Pants - Grey or navy based

Shoes - Brown or black based

 

There are good reasons why it is this way. I mean, who wants to wear a red shirt or a pair of red shoes?

When I say red, I mean red.

These aren't red?

Oxblood is close to red, but not red. Maybe in the red family.

The bordeaux/burgundy/oxblood family is easy to use and great. Noodles should get some oxblood to go with his navy and grey suits. #8 for me today.

Beautiful shoes, but closer to brown than red.

I have a shirt in Carlo Riva cotton, absolutely exquisite, and it is white with the sharpest navy blue pinstripe. It is worn like a white shirt.

My Allen Edmonds Shells look more reddish in direct sunlight. But I understand now what you meant.

All the same, those colored shirts are horrible and have no place on the back of any well dressed man.

 

I was just commenting on the base colors (as they appear on my monitor which may be different than yours) not the quality of shirt or material.

Guys look what I found!

I have started to like patterned blue shirts now! Don't like solid blue as much though. I think the blue + white in the patten gives it more contrast while still being blue which I think suits my preferences and perhaps complexion/hair more.

I really love your tie in this - where is it from?

I don't give skin tone much consideration for the other parts of the wardrobe, but shirts are right up against the face. I think it's a legitimate consideration for that element.
 
Almost all of those are far too saturated.

Agree.  Especially with pink: When you want it to work it must be so very pale.  Same with Lavender, and a good selection of blues.
