The suit is from Suitsupply, it's actually a grey birdseye (VBC 'Revenge' 140s). Shirt is Proper Cloth, tie is from Henry Carter.

McFox and Poszetka tried to get me to thumb that slub, but I'm not having it! (Otherwise nice, gentlemen). I disagree with Caustic Man's take on Poszetka's hank. It's not subtle, I guess, but works. White linen would not be an improvement, just a very different look.

McFox got the thumb from me, but the shirt pattern gives me mild uncomfort.

McFox, is the 140s VBC a hopsack? And which SS model has the more roped shoulders, 3/2, and patch?

Thanks!


Why the discomfort?

 

It's not a hopsack and the model is Jort

I confess that I didn't notice the check. I do not love it, but it doesn't really detract from the overall impression.

I have little love for any patterned shirts with more cityfied suits (besides stripes and maybe subdued microchecks), but also am not crazy about taking a casual pattern and cutting a collar like that. But then I'm kinda boring. biggrin.gif

Also goes against a foo-ism that there is always a better choice than charcoal trousers. I think charcoal works best here, but I'll let others more knowledgeable tell me otherwise and why.




Works for me here, though it's a look I'm uncomfortable with myself. I love gray ties but own few of them for this reason.

I'd be interested in the thoughts of others.

I have worn button downs (and only button downs) with ties for over sixty years.  The only non button down shirts that I have ever worn are with dinner jackets.  I think that button downs may be more common in the United States than elsewhere.

That PS is a no-go for me. It is incongruent with what is otherwise a nice fit. White linen would have been the perfect choice.

 

 

My thought is that you should never listen to this person again.


It was my working day, white linen was too formal. 'Wild Forest' PS has lots of greens, which match with shantung tie.

But every once in a while it's nice to have some variety. smile.gif

True. Send them to me! biggrin.gif
