post #29626 of 33197

Hey, I am looking for a very plain shirt, which I will be pairing with a navy suit, burgundy grenadine tie, and white linen PS. I have noticed that most of you forum members prefer light blue to white, do you also think light blue is the best choice in this case? If so, do you think this one from Suitsupply is fine? http://eu.suitsupply.com/en/shirts/blue-shirt/H4580.html?vpid=H458004

The most obvious choice would be a white shirt. No, it's not the only acceptable choice, but if I were running late in the morning and didn't want to devote any extra seconds to choosing a shirt, I'd reach for a plain white shirt.

There are situations where light blue is better than white. There are situations when white is better than light blue. There are situations where they each about equally good.

With the suit and tie you mention, I'd prefer a white shirt to a light blue one. I'd also prefer a white shirt with a very fine red stripe, to a light blue one.

While I agree that all of the above would be comfortable for the weather, some of these fabrics are very casual and may not pass muster as "interview suit", unless you are looking at a creative field (advertising, design, film production, television, tech). A little more information re: the field of business would be helpful in giving the best advice.


Looking for a conservative looking, light weight summer suit suitable for conservative fields like banking, law, etc.  What fabric and color work best?  Do you think a darker color looks too hot in the summer even though it looks more conservative and professional?

At least in most of the United States, in the 21st century, conservative business attire for bankers and lawyers need not change dramatically with the seasons. A medium weight wool suit in navy or grey is about as acceptable a choice in July as it is in January. Particularly as you're talking about something to wear to interviews, I'd recommend you not worry much about whether your suit will look too hot in the summer.

Once you get the job, if you want to pick up a couple of more "summery" suits, that might be okay. But until then, treat it as a non-issue.

100% agree

Make sure it isn't lined, too.

Does anyone know what tie this is (Maurice Hennessey on the right)? Really beautiful.

Even tropical wool? I thought that would be the crispest/sharpest fabric out of what I suggested.

It fits fine. You're overthinking this, no?

post #29637 of 33197
Are your comments in relation to my v neck? And thanks if they are
post #29638 of 33197

Indeed it was.

post #29639 of 33197
Thanks I had one guy on here say it's terrible and another say it's great so I was looking for a third opinion.

What is the sweater made of? It might fit a bit better after a run through the wash.

 

But you're really better off asking about brands made for your physique.
