Good to know. Thanks!

I have no issue wearing wool-silk squares in S/S. Color is way more important.

I like everything but the square there. Too yellow.

My advice?  Bid on this Ring jacket from The Armoury to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

FWIW, the brown tie has yellow flowers. But ok.

Slowear is the parent group of Incotex so there is no discernible difference really. For example in the Incotex factory they sell both and in the Slowear shop in Rome they sell Incotex trousers along with many other brands which fall under the same group.

I know French blue shirts should be avoided and light blues are much more stylish and classic. Is this for example way too saturated to make it into a regular rotation?

Ignore what they say about this and carry on

that is all

That's about as saturated as you'd want a shirt, I think. So yeah, it'll work.

Care to elaborate on this? Is this one deemed light enough?

I have no doubt that will work with the right SC or suit and tie given other conventional...

Let me seek out a couple of examples and get back to you?

Best

That would be nice. Although I only have a solid brown and a navy sport coat right now. And mostly solid knit and grenadine ties. So first of all I'm looking for versatile and easy to wear items. That's why I was on the fence whether it's too saturated or not.

Yep, carry on. You'll be fine...

If you are buying then may be a shade lighter will be a wee bit more versatile. If you have already then carry on regardless.

Personally, I'd wear anyway.

post #32593 of 37396

@Pelikan the most pertinent question is whether or not you like it. If so, do as Cleav says and carry on. If not, go for a lighter shade.

 

I generally very much dislike darker shirt colors (I have a blue slightly darker than your posted one and do not really like it), but that one is by no means too saturated. You'd be fine with it.

post #32594 of 37396

Thanks. I don't have it (yet), just wanted to make sure the colour's okay. I'd say I like it but I'm not a fan of darker blues. And it's hard to judge based on a few online pictures.

Going back a bit: Suggesting bespoke to go after tiny improvements in fit seems like overkill, especially given that most tailors seem to need a suit or two to dial in the fit. Why spend $5000 on jackets that don't even fit as well as the RTW you're already happy with? Maybe if you're looking for fabrics not readily available in RTW, but it seems that Justin is well within the Good Enough zone.
