Namaste Roy Al.  I liked H&H too, but in the end it was the collars that put me off rather than the colors. (ok the colors r a little wild i mean purple and green stripes?).

Had a hunch it would not pass here.

But if not for anything else, Harvie & Hudson are famous for their bold stripes. Very British and they were my first real love - in the shirt world. One of the few companies left on Jermyn Street that are famllilyowned and run. That is a reason to check them out. some like them and some don't.

That's to be sure. My "critique" of the shirt wasn't intended to say it's a bad look, just not one for me...

 

Mind you, I'd be completely content with a closet full of solid whites, with the occasional pale blue/pink...so the bold looks are definitely not going to tickle my fancy haha

 

WTF?  Have u learned nothing? :plain:

thoughts?

Extraordinarily fugly.  Terminate with extreme prejudice.

In regards to the white shirt debate, one might call me Jon Snow.

ouch :)

snowblind? 

 

It's about establishing a range of formality in your fits. SB's bowtie fit above, for example, would be better with blue. imo the white is a clanging discord in an otherwise great look.

This will be something I must chalk up to preference, because I certainly don't think you're wrong in this case. I, for better or worse, just find white so much more appealing than blue. I think I'd prefer a pink to blue even, at least if we're talking solids. I used to be much more vibrant in terms of shirting colors...

 

Who knows, perhaps my tolerance for colored shirts will make a (spoiler that's anything but) comeback similar to the Bastard of Winterfell :slayer:

Can we get the deets on that tie?  It's fantastic.  The look is altogether great.

Except that it is a blue shirt...

Once again, thanks to all those who take the time and trouble to post pictures of themselves and to those who like my pictures.  Recently, there have been some comments about people posting pictures of themselves taken while standing on grass and about people posting pictures of themselves while wearing stripes.  I have forgotten if those comments were for or against standing on grass and/or wearing stripes.

I have combined the two.  Here I am earlier today out on the hottest day of the year (so far) standing on (California drought colored) grass while wearing a Brooks Brothers blue blazer, blue and white striped PPBD shirt, and black, blue, and white striped repp tie, Land's End blue and white striped seersucker trousers (which are falling down because I continue to lose weight), and Bass white bucs.....

Some of the collars tend to bend round the buttonhole, and don't stay up straight, making a messy look. Did you have the same problem, or was it the shape itself?

@mcobinad Great fit. Disregard comments such as 'so close'. You look comfortable in what you're wearing and look great. This is probably my favorite fit of yours thus far.

Truly a man's man.

I try to eschew almost every detail in my clothing possible, and yet Pliny's fits make me want to burn my entire wardrobe and go back to a kind of pared-back asceticism.

 

Who makes the cloth? Is that a HFW one?
