HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 2136

AAS, the pants are kind of in the no-man's-land. They're a bit wide for the zero break look, but not so wide that they scream "high water". I would lengthen them a bit, even if it means sacrificing the cuff.

As someone who tries to get away from the "I only wear white or blue shirts"-posse, I have followed the discussion on shirt colours with interest. Don't think I have any pale yellow shirts yet, but maybe that will be a project for the future.

 

One colour scheme that used to be a staple of every gentleman's wardrobe was "off-whites" (I'm thinking about the spectrum cream-ivory-wheat). But you rarely see that nowadays, at least not as solids (still see it as a base for tattersalls and the like). I quite like it, more versatile than you might think. Especially useful when you wear a sc or a suit with a textured fabric with muted colours, like tweed, corduroy or heavy wool. The two top pics are taken with an ivory shirt from Emma Willis, the two further down with a Drake's shirt in wheat.

 

What are the views in the forum on these type of shirt colours?

post #32028 of 43841

@DiplomaticTies I completely agree!  I think they work very well with a number of colours of suit or SC - in fact I am struggling to think of one that would not.

 

One of my favourites at the moment is a white end-on-end shirt by Hawes and Curtis which gives a creamy glow.  Don't wear it much because I don't know if I can ever replace it, so far has their quality descended.... 

 

This old Boss cream shirt is now being kept on beyond its expected life for the same reason:

@DiplomaticTies  shirts with a yellowish undertone give my skin a yellowish undertone, so I do not wear them.  I think yellow/cream/ivory can be problematic for a lot of people in this regard. You've got dark hair, so maybe this helps create some balance or contrast in your coloring, not sure.  But doesn't work well on me.

   I like white, blue and for variety I'll wear pink sometimes.  I've also got one lavendar striped ocbd.  I feel pattern and texture make up enough variety as opposed to lot's of color in shirts.

Late Wednesday submission--went straight to dinner after I left the office. I would prefer a white or ecru shirt today, but oh well.

I think the shirt is too informal for the suit. And the tie... let's just say I would have a hard time wearing it. biggrin.gif

Nice! But to my eye, shirt suit are too busy together. Make either plain and you're good.

Colors and patterns are good, fit seems good but a bit hard to judge (jacket quite short?). But you can definitely improve on the tie knot.

There's also a maker that I've only been able to identify as Jermyn Street that makes nice ones. Also, John Comfort.


Thanks @Koala-T .  It's the old  subdued ones that I like too.  It is interesting that the thread is starting to generate discussion about some of the trends that were popular but are now much harder to find.  @DiplomaticTies has started a discussion about off-white shirts.  I think the old muted paisleys that I grew up with are another endangered species that we need to try to safeguard (as some here do.)
