Trendy shirts with classic cut suits.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I recently bought Hugo Boss casual shirt. I know Hugo Boss is not welcomed brand here, but at least the shirt is made in Italy. It is very slim fitted. White base with silverish metal pin-stripes. The metal fibers are woven with cotton. I find this cool so I bought it. I tried it on with bunch of my suits I have, and suprisingly it goes so well. This gave me an idea where I should start wear suits with more trendy shirts without a tie. I know this type of dressing may not be suitable for work, but when going out this will work very nicely IMO.

I think this is the way to go if you want to maximize wardrobe potential per dollar. Have some classic suits as wardrobe pillars then add shirts, ties and pocket squares to take them in the direction you want to go. The suit also serves as an anchor to more outre pieces. Now about that Hugo Boss...

Yes indeed to both the above posts. This works especially well with solid colored single breasted suits with a fashion forward cut: the Gucci - Helmut Lang - Jil Sander family.

Milano, where did you find the Hugo Boss shirt? Was it regular black label? Is it short enough to wear untucked? I don't mind Boss shirts -- usually overpriced for what you get, but for a slim fitted casual shirt, they are pretty good. I agree with Alan about the suits -- I get the most wear out of my solid colored suits, which are easy to pair with multiple combos of patterned shirts and ties.

Yeah Johnny, If I am wearing this shirt with jeans, I am planning to tuck it out. This was their summer collection and it was 50% off. It is black label line.

Ditto on this remark. IMO, true style comes out of your imagination, like mixing wardrobe pieces. Love what I see some young guys are doing now, patterned French cuff shirts, untucked, with jeans and boots.

Uh oh   Sounds awfully like the American jackass look.  Tell me, do most of these guys work in the financial sector or in a law firm, have short back and sides haircuts, and look like they belonged to a fraternity at one point?

think it is a modified American JA look. I view the A JA look as bold striped untucked shirt, jeans, square toes plastic, rubber sole shoes, overjelled, pushed forward buzzed cut hair.

I will sometimes do etro broad bengal striped shirts under pinstriped suits, I think it looks pretty nice.

Even a over-worn navy suit can be brought back to life with a different style anytime with interesting patterned dress shirts. Fantastic coordination can be further enhanced through the right combination against patterned ties. It is really an art...

Or perhaps not. Remember Italian laws allow clothing to be labeled as Italian made even if only the buttons were sown in Italy. I like Boss. I do agree it is overpriced but it looks good.
