Light beige trousers with black shoes? is it a no-no?

post #21557 of 31071

Not necessarily; just wear a black belt.  Dark shirt, beige linen trousers, black monks...dinner on a warm summer evening...works for me.  But browns and tans have a warmer look and complement beige tones nicely, especially in the daytime.

Thank you, but these shoes has no ones available in tan color.

yes, the idea is black shoes and black shirt with light beige trousers

 

Thank you for your opinion!

Anyone have any idea how to get the wrinkles, and stretches, out of my linen sports coat? Half lined, fully canvassed. I'm guessing the wrinkles with a steamer. How about the stretches though? Like on the breast pocket.

It's your graduation.  By all means wear something cheerful, but "playful" will just make you look like a douche.  Dress beautifully, it's the beginning of the rest of your life.  This is the "Classic Menswear" forum, dude, go look at the "What are you wearing right now?" thread for some ideas on how gentlemen of style actually dress (and ignore anyone in jeans, cargo pants, or no socks  as part of their "classic" ensemble - we're back to douche land).  There are some really well-dressed people over there, some of them just out of college like you.  You don't have to try to be "fun" by wearing a stupid tie.  If you're fun, it's in your personality.  But if you're dressed like a dick, your personality might well be overlooked.

So camo tie = douche?

I always thought all camo was kind of on the lame side... (to phrase it nicely since I know there's nice people here that do wear camo).

 

I never liked the idea of trying to style up something soldiers wear as a uniform in combat. Plus, the stuff people wear as camo is all the really lame looking stuff. Get the good looking stuff if you want to do it at all, Multicam. :-)

Thanks for pointing out the shirt size. I went to the store and tried on a small shirt for the first time in my life and it fit. I had lost 25 pounds but was still buying my old size I guess. 

 

I exchanged some recent purchases for a small size and they look significantly better.

Exactly. ;)  But if it must be these, go blue.

Novelty ties in general, camouflaged anything.  Yes, just don't.  You're asking the Classic Menswear forum...so expect classic menswear to be the generally approved point of reference.

Not necessarily - depends on the shirt, your style, and I'd confine it to the evening.  But I'm thinking Indigo would be nice. :)

I'm curious what the opinions are on a suit under 2000. As a graduation present, I think my wife may be willing to splurge (to our standards) and I would like it to be on a high quality suit. Right now I live in New York, and as I plan on leaving the State, I'd like to take advantage of the great shops around here. 

 

So my question is, what are the opinions on the best suit I can buy in that price range in New York City.

They look a little cheap to my untrained eye.
