I like it there, and I like it with the suggested tan/cream suit...though I don't know about the suit being S/S.

I thought this thread was more of an open ended thread. We have discussed travel before - along with politics, religion, philosophy, and a host of other items that have separate forums for themselves as well. Many of those who post in this thread do not go into the other fora, and so would not be able to respond.


The reason I posted my question was that I found Styleforum to be an extremely helpful source of travel suggestions for many years. I used it to plan many trips to Europe. It was better than rankings on Tripadvisor. But the best, up-to-date information would come from specific threads for travel to the country or city. The exceptions have been when someone did a thread on their sartorial trip to Naples and combined food, hotels and tailors in CM threads as an overview of their experience.

Because Styleforum has a variety of members from around the world, many who travel extensively, the forum can be an excellent source for travel information. However, the quality and variety of the travel related replies would seem to improve if the questions were posted in more targeted threads.

I bring this up because I'd like to encourage more activity, once again, in the travel threads.

Would probably help too if it showed the word "travel" when you mouse on the top toolbar to Forums-->Culture-->Social Life, Food & Drink, and Travel

 

:fu:

 

might just be me, but when i mouse over, I'm showing that it cuts off after Drink.

@sebastian mcfox - a lighter grey suit may work better with that tie.

Travel threads are a mess here - they are ghettoed into their own forum, so who looks at them unless someone is planning a trip?

To read up on Italy, you need to search, and try to data-mine 5 years of threads.

I am part of the problem - I didn't offer up much after my trips.

If you are in Arizona, you'll be doing plenty of that.

Fair enough (and good advice, by the way).  But there's no reason not to cross-post a question to more than one thread so far as I'm concerned.

 

Cheers,

.

All good input.

I just posted a suggestion here for the Styelforum Admins to consider. Feel free to post any more comments or suggestions to help boost the Travel & Leisure thread category concept .

I think you've done just fine here. I think someone could object only if they don't like the color itself.

There was a useful recurring sub-discussion in the Good Taste Thread about turquoise/teal ties. I think that looks OK, but the issue is probably the tie itself, which appears quite saturated. Lighter grey, as suggested a few posts up, could possibly work, but it seems to me that the darker grey  helps tonedown the tie. Two other ideas are a brown glenplaid. The brown would balance the teal. The other thought is that even though it's a neat, it might be better paired with odd jackets, which might provide more options, like brown, green, and other shades of blue.

Turquoise looks best IMO with tan. The gold and yellow in the medallions would also look good with a tan color. Because the tie is wool it wouldn't look right with a Spring/Summer tan suit, so try pairing it with a light brown-tan corduroy coat. It might give the jacket a nice pop of color.

Agreed.  I actually really like that outfit.  Would look good with a navy suit too.

Thanks for all of the suggestions everyone, much appreciated

@sebastian mcfox you might want to also try that gray suit and tie with a light pink shirt. Turquoise sometime comes alive next to a bit of pink. Pink looks great next to gray.
