Gents:

 

Can I get an example of a summer shirt patterns that you like and are wearing? Curious what people are wearing, a photo of the pattern would be awesome. All manner of blue is something I seem to be stuck with, so anything not blue would be cool. Hope that makes sense. Spring is coming perhaps...

Change your password. And whenever possible elect two factor authentication. http://lifehacker.com/5938565/heres-everywhere-you-should-enable-two-factor-authentication-right-now

I can't believe you listened to him. Photographers have some weird power. He probably told you to do that so your belt wouldn't show.
I had no belt on and the jacket fell right and was not tight. He effed up my SF approved look.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85
I don't like those shoe laces.

Blue. I wear blue. I've always thought gingham/tattersall  lends itself well to spring.

gingham is the best summer pattern of ever.

rudlas, you should have kicked the photog in the balls for button raping you like that.

great pose tho.

I have shirts in the 2nd and 3rd patterns posted above. About as spring as it gets.

I don't like that first one at all, though.

Thanks Clags.

 

I have the small check gingham in light/sky blue and find it quite nice. WIth gingham, it's a balance between having something that doesn't just look solid from any distance but close up and something so large that you start to look like a picnic table.  The example you give here is lavender?

 

On the tattersall, i'm torn. I like the blue/brown colorway in the smaller, thinner check, but I worry that the size of the check is too thin and insubstantial. I'd be happier with a stronger check as in the first but perhaps not as strong.

 

TM79 why don't you like the first? Size of checks?

 

I might start off with a think blue stripe linen BD and work from there. But if anyone has any other thoughts, I'd love to be inspired.

I only like the 3rd one. I've not tried other patterns but the 3rd one in blue and purple makes great combos.

I wonder what the demand would be for these useless Derbys. Anyone have a gauge?

post #4169 of 37396
You gonna sell them? I don't think there's anything wrong with them at all. I may be in the minority there not sure. Use them to practice a high shine on the toe box or something. Or toss them up on ebay or here and see what happens. Believe it or not used shoes do sell decently.

I want to sell these and get oxfords. Since losing weight, they've become big for me.
