How about cream, depending on the fabric?

Tan, read "beige", pants play well with a light grey jacket, IMHO. Better than dark grey, especially if you're a bigger guy, though obviously blekit doesn't have that problem.

I would also add that given the medium contrast of colour between beige and light grey, pairing is improved if one aims at contrasting the textures as well.

Unless you are under contract where there are specific terms of good cause for termination you are typically classified as an "at-will-employee"...at which point your employer can terminate you at any time and without reason. It is better to have this in writing...but even this may not necessary. 


Have you ever been part of a wrongful termination lawsuit? Every employee in the U.S. has protections against it, even at-will. If you don't have documentation showing that someone wasn't performing, or part of a synergy termination, or some other cause, then you are open to a discrimination lawsuit. It doesn't matter if you have a contract or not. The employee agreement (which often claims that you can be terminated at any time) and the reality of the law are two different things. Not everyone employee realizes this, but it doesn't make it less true.

To be honest, I saw the mismatch but I decided to post the fit anyway. I'm having troubles with figuring out the bottom to wear with this jacket. I thought those moleskins might match, but they clearly are too casual and clash with the top half. Maybe if they were pressed to have a crease.

Mid grey seems to similar to jacket in my opinion, dark grey could work.

And there's the problem with grey SC. Great in theory, but hard to match in practice.

Some guys wear jackets/suits like me, though ties are rarity. But the point is, that the way I look at this it's the other guys who are underdressed for work and I'm not going to lower my standards just to conform. As you yourself stated - dressing well doesn't mean you're overdressed.

 

 

Ah, I see. I must have misinterpreted your previous statement then. I take it that even if you are a bit over dressed compared to everyone else that it isn't by that much.

@TheoProf
, I like all of this. One nit--any consideration to the gig line? Myself, I'm a compulsive gig-line checker, something ingrained by my military background. 

I'm trying to incorporate more spread collars over time. Today's fit is an example. Duvel, I agree about the gig line. I forgot to check it closely.
Today's rig:
J Press suit
Spier and MacKay shirt
Drakes grenadine tie
TieBar square
No name braces
AE shoes

blekit, around whom this discussion started, is not in US. Most western world outside US is pretty socialist oriented, and firing someone "just because" is not easy.

One well known multinational I worked for had a round of "right sizing". People I worked with in Europe were given up to year worth of severance, while same positions in US were given maybe month, and that was considered generous. Some guys 55+ of age in Austria were considered too expensive to lay off :-)

On the contrast topic; too much or not much enough?

I like the spread collar. I don't like the tie.

post #36220 of 43924

@TheoProf I think I like you in suits better than SC/TR. Less can go wrong. I agree on the tie, there are better choices. Still thumbed though.

 

@Roy Al I love the blue SC, gray TR, black shoes combo.

 

Twinsies! I was wearing black shoes also.

Thank you CM, your opinion counts always.

But I thank all who like my posts. People tend to not comment my posting that much, which I try to interpret it positive, so it is much appreciated when someone do.

That's a nice pair of casual shoes. What are they? @sugarbutch

I'm not going to argue with you anymore about this.

 

As an employer I have much more experience with it...and it is really quite straightforward so long as they are an at-will-employee.

I like this fit with one reservation, which may be a reflection of personal preference rather than being "wrong". My approach would be to avoid colours of pants and tie matching closely. Is this just me, or do others think the same way?

I quite like the square there, but it is well documented that I am a fan of the machy at times.
