GuP - Fabrics look ok for causl shirts. Would wear the solids with ties, others probs not.

@gup #2 and 4 look very saturated. Personally do not like mid-size windowpane like #3. All but the white should be worn casually; would never wear the, with tie.

Any recs for fabrics that are perhaps "better" or more versatile?

Aha, got it. My bad for assuming.

First, congrats. Second, I think you could probably wear a suit and be completely fine in that case. I'd just keep it all pretty straightforward.

I think you picked a PoW pattern ... if not, well, I'm still telling myself you did.

Here's a PoW I like:

I didn't like the gingham you chose. I didn't like that it was black and white and I didn't like the small scale of it. I'd go with something like this for gingham instead ... except I'd pick navy or a deep red instead of the color in this picture:

If you wanted a sport shirt with smaller scale I think I'd aim for something a little more like this:

Me-  going on color and pattern alone, there's not much i can say about white Oxford. Really depends on who made it, and the weight..  #3 & #4 okay for summery linen blends.  2 is an odd color for a bengal and I'd go for a solid blue instead there. .   5 is a big fugly no.

I guess I could have just said "here are better things" shog[1].gif

I imagined all of them to be worn without a tie, obviously ... just thought you could string together better outfits with these than the original selection that was posted.

If starting from nothing, build your basics of solids and stripes and toss in some small scale gingham.  The below fabrics are all from Luxire's site.

 

Linen blends

Lincoln center is a great place - I ran into Spike Lee there once at some show.

 

I just graduated medical school. Funny you mentioned Spike Lee. I was just watched Winning Time: Reggie Miller vs. the NY Knicks yesterday on TV.

 

On a more #menswear note, I think my attire for the day has been decided for me. A family friend threw a get together for me and gave me a pair of very expensive cufflinks. I guess suit with French cuff shirt it is.

Think I just had my lifespan shortened by 5 years. Looked like the airline had lost my suitcase containing 2 Formosa suits, I Formosa SC, 2 Eidos SC and a pair of Vass. Luckily someone had taken the wrong case and decided to return it :/
