I think you will look much better on a much finer contrasting collar shirt. The strips on your shirt has similar width to the chalk strips on your suit; the visuals are buzzing and disorienting.

^^^ odoreater.... have to agree with vitaminc's comments above. Stripes too similar. Crap shirt. Love the suit.

I've always like the contrasting white collar/cuff look. Always seemed to make an outfit more formal and sharp.

I like the geiko look myself. If it's done right and only in certain situations.

I really like the examples posted above.

Is that what the sequal will be about.

The insurance gekko would surely win the green contest, BTW.

Green lizard wingtips are de rigeur for hostile takeovers this season.

He'd probably turn up in that jacket made of sewn-together dollar bills.

It only works really well when you have a detachable stiff collar and apron shirt. Then it looks great. Best examples are seen amongst the real old money, Prince Charles etc at places like Royal Ascot. Otherwise it's terribly Donaldish. I'd never wear it with a soft collar shirt but do sometimes with a detachable stiff collar.

But I cant help thinking of Lumberg.

I always take a look at myself in the mirror when I'm formally dressed just to make sure I haven't overcooked it.
