So yellow ties can be good! IMO it's that pale yellow with no redish warmth that works best with navy.  

 

Completely agree.  I've always been a fan of the right yellow tie with a navy suit.

You mean cream as in pale yellow?

Coincidence that the final pale yellow neat tie at Shibumi sold out within the past few hours?  I think not.

JFC, if I had known what I started with that thing...


It still looks great.  

 

I once bumped into David Bowie in an elevator and didn't recognize him for a good minute (even though he was standing there with Iman) because he only came up to about my forehead, and I'm not exactly tall.  Both of them are so lean and wiry I just assumed they were both 6'2", and they didn't register, even though I was looking straight at them.  You have a sort of Bowiesque frame, so I was curious.

 

Funniest part of that story is that as the elevator door opened, by complete chance, standing there was a friend who was a Bowie obsessive.  Like, I was afraid for what was going to happen, obsessive.   She walked straight past Bowie and Iman and was like, "Oh! Hi! What's up?" After weighing my options I said, "well, David Bowie just walked right by you."  

 

She didn't believe me.

I had a hard time getting dressed the last two days.  I've been trying to wear my solid green sport coat, but haven't been happy with looks.  I've end up with this today, but it looks like I've worn this before.  I wish I had gone with a different tie.

In a show of solidarity with all of those who, for some reason, post pictures of themselves holding their cell phones, here's a picture of me holding my iPhone in it's monogramed tan grain leather Harris Tweed lined SENA case.

I am wearing a Brooks Brothers jacket, PPBD shirt, tie, and cotton sweater vest, Squarextraordinaire pocket square, Orvis cord trousers, and Allen-Edmonds brown grain Kiowas.....

It's the tie  that you're not comfortable with?    A plaid pattern like that on a shirt in these parts here is most commonly found on a 'flanno'..   ie.  something u wear chopping wood in the great outdoors or doingother manly stuff.   Very un-MC if u ask me.

Upon hearing this is not your shin, I return to give thumbs.  

 

.08 of a thumb deducted for shin-mirage sock material.  

 

.08 of a thumb restored for armchair.

My first ever Brooks Brothers tie, so a measly attempt at Ivy League. But of course I know little about it and I don't do BD shirts...

 

 

@Roycru shows how to do it....

My last med school interview. I really hope i make it in here...

Not my best fit, but I figured I'd post something. I like pinstripes.

This suit was 15 bucks and will likely never be worn again, but as long as it did it's job well today ill say it was worth it.

Vintage BB suit (with two small moth holes in the back i discovered the night before my interview...!)
BB tie
CT shirt
AE shoes
Hamilton watch


Interview at Jefferson in Philadelphia.

 

Like Isolation's pants, your shirts consistently are let down for an otherwise decent fit. You'll prob wear a suit or white coat occasionally as an MS1 and MS2, so invest in a few nice spreads from Luxire or Kamakura before you buy anything else.
