Interesting....more so than tan? 

If you're light hair on light skin, tan is going to kind of wash you out.

Thanks, I'll do dark brown then.

 

I always thought the lighter you are, lighter shades on the jacket look more natural and darker (like black) tend to be too contrasting.

Thanks for your reply once again it is much appreciated out of the two jackets I have shown you which one should I go for the first one or the second one? Which do you think fits better? Thanks a million'

First Jacket:

French cuffs -- are they for suits only? Or are they appropriate with an odd jacket and worsted trousers?

 

Context: Friend is suddenly getting married to their partner next week at the courthouse. A long time ago they gave me some special cufflinks I'd like to wear. A suit seems over the top for courthouse / brunch after. 


I am leaning towards: Grey flannel blazer, navy wool trousers, white FC shirt, Shepards check tie, split-toe bluchers. Some formality mixing in here (bluchers with shepards/fc) but I'm traveling via plane so minimal shoe wardrobe is a plus.

I'm going to a speaker dinner in just over a month and I will be wearing a navy suit. I was thinking of wearing a knitted tie and a tie bar but I'm not sure if it is acceptable as it is quite a formal affair. Could anyone give me any suggestions of ties and tie bars that will work well with a navy suit and white shirt? It would be greatly appreciated if you could post links to the items as well.

 

Thanks.

What do ye think of wearing yoke pattern sweaters at this time of year? Mine is similar to below pic. Is it appropriate in yere opinion or just suited to the holiday season?

Selected Sweater In Fairisle Blue

There's a limit to how much contrast is ideal (black is going to be pretty stark) but brown or blue or olive is what you want.

Only for suits.

And I disagree that a suit is over the top for this occasion. If it's informal, skip the tie.

It's appropriate all winter. Rock on.

Wear a plain silk woven tie, not a knitted one. Skip the tie bar.

I'm wondering if the leather color has any influence on other items I might wear with them (shoes?). The braces in question are very informal/whimsical with a fly fishing motif.

I don't think it should matter, as braces are considered an undergarment and thus not meant to be seen in public. But for some reason it has me puzzled.
It would bother me, but as you said, braces aren't going to be seen, so if it doesn't bother you, than there is no issue.

Agree that I would not go with with a knitted tie if you know's it's going to be formal. I would go with a grenadine. Navy, burgundy, something somber.

Hi everyone

I am new here. 

just wondering if my purple tie would match my purple shirt (their shades of purple are quite similar)

 

here's the pic (the suit is dark navy, not black)

@KHTong shirt looks nice, good collar... can't really see the suit, but I don't like the tie or the knot. You have some other options?
post #29848 of 33197

@Kid Nickels how about a plain white shirt with french cuff, and a double four in a hand knot. also i could wear a tie clip instead of the pocket square

Anyone?
post #29850 of 33197

@upcoming hi, i dont know why i cant enlarge the pics....but from what i can see i think both fit you quite well (in terms of the shoulders); however, i think the second one looks nicer on you because lighter navy matches your skin color better than a dark navy. It stands out more. for the first one, it looks like you may need to take in the jacket a bit, and for the second one, i really cant tell from the pic

 

just sharing my opinion!

 

cheers
