Looks like sky blue, which is a common shade of light blue for a shirt. Further, the exact shade should not be considered relevant for a shirt, because fabric weave and texture can affect how the shirt looks. In this case, the first two images appear to be showing a poplin shirt, while the image at the end could easily be a lighter shade in a pin point or twill weave.

 

Moreover, such precise colour descriptions are usually reserved for more prominent pieces, such as summer jackets.

I like the look of grey suede shoes, but I'm not sure what kind of pants I'd wear with them.

 

What might work with the grey color?

Depending on the shade, they can be paired with just about anything. I'd consider them equivalent to burgundy in that regard, but wouldn't pair them with black pants.


I'd definitely wear them casually with lighter colors or pastel pants if you're into that sort of thing. Depending on their make up, I'd wear them like bucks.

I guess the better question is what do you usually wear? Would this be for formal or casual use?

I haven't seen any grey suede out on the street, but it seems like a really good idea.  As long as they don't get dirty, I can see a light grey pair being useful for almost anything.  Dirty grey suede should be relegated to streetwear and denim purposes, but it doesn't feel as though a clean grey would be out of place with even a full suit.

Agreed, I think they'd look awesome with suits.

As for their getting dirty. Application of both scotchguard and water repellant spray would make them pretty hardy.

The grey suede would actually be for casual use, with well-fitting jeans and chinos. My jeans are pretty dark in color, while the chinos vary.

Does this change any minds?

I'm looking for a trip fit, off white, spread collar dress shirt (possibly french cuff) however I've found it is (not surprisingly) much harder to find off white than white.  So far I've found an ivory twill at Proper Cloth and an ecru twill at Hamilton Shirts.  Any other suggestions?  This is for my wedding so I'm more than willing to go into the $200-300 price range, if necessary.

Get a custom made at any one of the online or local MTM places if you have time.

Yep.

For that price, you may even be able to get bespoke. If you're in New York, sometimes Carl at CEGO will waive the minimum to make you a wedding shirt.

If you think you'll wear them, get them. I think they're a great look.

How much would it cost approximately for a tailor to add surgeon cuffs to a blazer? Is it possible? I have a madras blazer and I sometimes roll up the sleeves in the summer so adding surgeon cuffs would make this more comfortable.

Many thanks.



I love this SHIRTS

Possible.  Price really depends on where you live, and who you go to.

I posted this on the Observations page, but then I decided it was better asked here.

 

As a rule, I don't like patent leather bluchers with a tuxedo, but EG's black patent Holborn has forced me to reconsider.  Then again, their design is not a typical blucher.  It reminds me of the monkstrap formal shoe in the often-copied, 1939 Esquire magazine image, which shows formal options for summer or tropical parties.  I have to say, that EG blucher is just perfect for that type of party.  Somehow, it captures that "slightly less formal" quality that I think is necessary in the summer, particularly in the American South.

 

Am I crazy to wear that shoe?  Am I even crazier for trying to pull together a summer-formal kit?

 

Surely, EG of all places has a sense of what is appropriate for formal wear.  Is anyone else wearing that shoe?

What kind of welt is this? Storm welt?
