Another awesome fit, sir.

 

Regarding contrast collar shirts, I've often admired them on others (such as your good self), but I find myself a little underwhelmed when I see one on me. Although today was the first time I've paired that shirt with that suit, and I thought the combination worked reasonably well.

What's a "contrast color" shirt? puzzled.gif

Autocorrect typo. Fixed.

Presumably a contrast collar. I also like the look on others, but always feel a bit foolish wearing one myself.

A ha. Well that makes much more sense. smile.gif

Hi-   Are the tight hems an EG thing or a personal preference?  I don't like the way jacket and trews look too small (altho the waist coat doesn't help)  but  I'm ignorant where SW&D is concerned.

The SEH Kelly cut is similar (soft shoulder, low gorge, narrow lapels, high buttoning point, tapered high-hem trews) and I like it, but I've seen their stuff worn much looser.

The Gordon Gekko -  flashy '80s throw-back imo

The "can the contrast collar be done" question was just answered by crusty. Yes. Yes it can.

It´s still only 12 degrees Celsius here in Germany, but i already brought out the linens.

I'm not sure about this shirt. I wanted to try the contrast collar-and-cuffs look but it doesn't seem to look right on me. This might be its last outing.

As with almost any kind of classic clothing they can look great, I think. And if anyone can pull them off, it's you; it requires a certain gravitas to wear them and not look like a sleazy banker-cliché. That being said I still would have liked a solid white shirt better here. laugh.gif

Actually I think the tie/shirt/cardigan combo is perfect, the shirt just doesn't go that well with the jacket. Now finding one that goes better with the shirt and the rest: that's a challenge.

Tsk, tsk.

I'm definitely NOT a fan of contrast collar shirts Andy ... usually ... and I doubt I'll ever get one myself, but I think yours succeeds here by being of lower contrast than usual and thus avoiding that 'sleazy banker' look as mentioned. Don't throw it out yet!

Somehow the tie ended up looking the same color with the trousers on the photo. Rats!
