I discovered a new outfit...

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
I love finding new outfits from stuff I already own.  I've had this shirt for a while and have had the tie for quite a while, but I never thought to introduce them to one another.  I was struck by lightning the other day and this is what happened: Probably alittle colorful for some of you guys taste, but this is my style.  I'm gonna add a camel colored linen blazer, jeans, and some cardovan slip ons. I'm gonna sport it this friday to my friends B-Day party, I'll post pics of the complete outfit later on.   Eric

well, eric, it won't be hard to find you in the dark in that combo. good for you, if you can pull it off.

Ow. My eyes. Suggestion: Solid tie. You will still be "colorful", believe me, but less riotous.

I do not think I would be able to pull it off. I would also use a solid color tie. But then again... if you feel comfortable on them... Be happy and enjoy. It is the holiday seasson anyway... people are happier.

I am sorry to hear that you were struck by lightning. A good eye doctor should be able to fix you right up though.

Yeah, I thought you guys would get a kick outta this. But like I said this is my style, I'm pretty couture sometimes, and it matches my personality, so it works out. People compliment the crazy outfits, which is fine, but many many more quietly hate on me amoungst themselves but I don't let that bother me. I just gotta be me. Keep the comments coming, I'm having fun with this. Eric

Match that with a pair of too-short Mr Bean pants, and a pair of Ronald McDonald big red lace-ups, and you'll be able to find work at the Comedy Club..

I think if you have a good contrast, then stripes on stripes works. I have a very thin striped (vertical) dress shirt (dark, light purple stripes), and I will wear it with a tie with fat stripes, of a similar color. The contrast works well, imo.

with some lights & tinsel around you you'll be perfect for Xmas party after b-day party..or with some candles on you could standin for birthday cake

Stripes on the tie look too close to the shirts. They create this confussing look. I would wear the shirt with a tie with block pattern (one of those Duchamp tie will do..).

If your refering to the red behind the knot of the tie, I concur. I am thinking of pinning the fabric at the top together, though I'm not sure how that will affect the vertical lines. Eric

I like it

I for one think it looks great. They go well together very well, and I imagine that the camel jacket will have just enough neutralization so it's not too loud.

I dig it. What sort of shirt is that?

Without any intentions to criticize Eric... I actually think the look works for him and I don't have anything against loud stripes... Doesn't this stripe shirt qualify as part of the "american jackass" look that many on this forum have disdained?
