Thanks for the advice, which I appreciate. A lot of what you say is true, but the tie is actually navy with a fina grenadine-like texture. Didn't come out in the iPhone snaps.

 

I don't mind this shirt with this jacket. It's not sedate, but hey, I'm not sedate. Perhaps a lighter blue tie would work better? And maybe just a TV-fold white linen square?

My bad!    White linen square's too formal IMO

I was going just by how it looks. It looks off to me, but I do understand why perhaps not everyone would feel the same way. Beauty is in the eye of the holder. Coherency, however, is not. :poke:

The lapels look fantastic for such an old jacket! Great fit!

Very nice looking outift. The only "but" is that those braces don't have button hole, too bad. I don't usually like clip-on braces. The rest is great (fit, colors, shoes, etc)

...and the socks? Why, K-Mart, of course.

Sexy Milanese buttonhole and sublime check on check. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

The fit is what killed the overall look

I don't care for them at all. I'm always a bit surprised to see otherwise well dressed guys wearing them.
