Getting myself back together.

So...when can that shirt be used?

It appears the Formosa suits should be worn with just plain light blue shirts and a navy tie. 

I must do my homework and figure out how to be creative with those suits. 

 

@Claghorn

Any words of advice before I head to Washington Shirts in Itaewon? I am taking my receipt with me so that they can find me easily.

Try and read this over your vacation, process, re-read it, and report back your thoughts.

@Murlsquirl has it right. That blue window Formosa is awesome.

@The Noodles have u been getting compliments are your Formosas? Do people appreciate the wide lapels and Neapolitan style? Or is it lost on them?

Noodles, the problem is that you paired a patterned suit with a patterned shirt and a patterned tie and there was likewise no coherency  between the colors for the same (burgundy tie on brown stripe shirt with navy suit).  There are some on this forum that can navigate three patterns successfully, but none of them are named Noodles or NS1.  The safe route is for you to always wear a solid shirt with a patterned suit and then do whatever you want with your tie.  Wear your patterned shirts with your solid suits. So, to summarize, solid shirts with your two glen plaid Formosas and patterned shirts with your navy birdseye Formosa unless/until you master the secret to successfully matching three patterns..

This is great advice.

Let's start with the most important person. 

#1. My wife loves the P.o.W. has no issues whatsoever with its style and loves everything about it. :puzzled:

#2. The navy birdseye gets similar love but she thinks it's a nice staple and likes the color. 

#3. The glenn plaid is hated because she dislikes the blue line in the suit and the color is a bit off. She calls it the retro suit.

 

At the office, people love the P.o.W. and they also love the glenn plaid. :puzzled:

As always, thank you for the great feedback. 

It is evident that I didn't put much thought into today's outfit. The pattern on the suit and the patterned shirt did bother me and I might have done something about it if I had time. I would love to be able to put 3 different patterns in a fit pic and be able to master it. But for now, I just need to keep it real simple.

@The Noodles I feel like you could use a birdseye in charcoal

Or maybe a fresco charcoal or grey or navy

What's your next soot purchase?

IMO, next two should be Murl's flannel and a mid/dark grey fresco.

I think the boat on Murl's flannel has sailed. Didn't someone buy it?
