I've got a couple of green ties, but I'm not really happy with how they look with either medium gray or navy suits.

 

Depends on the shade of green. Dudes incorporate green here all the time and it can look great. It may simply be that you need to get the right shade of green to go with your suits.

Buy more ties. Eventually, you'll find some which strike you as going well with your gray or navy suits. smile.gif

You know, given that it's the hot and humid south, you could even change it up and choose a bow tie, once in a while. Not too often, since you don't want the people at your office to start thinking of you as "that bow tie guy." But now and then.

Or how about a white cotton pocket square, with a green border? And that'd only set you back around $8, from The Tie Bar, so if you wound up hating it you wouldn't be out much green.

Do you wear eyeglasses, even if only for reading? An inexpensive pair of green eyeglass frames could be one way to obey your corporate orders to display green.

Even a green leather strap for a wristwatch might do the trick.

I'm from the UK what brands produce suits of similar quality to Hugo Boss but without the massive mark up for the designer name?

Thanks!

Great ideas, thank you. To be fair, it's possible that I'm just wearing the wrong shirts with those grey and navy suits to "bridge the gap" to my green ties. I like some of those other options, though. I wear contacts, but I do have a pair of glasses if my eyes are irritated or I want to give them a rest, so that might actually work.

Fellas,

I just received a pair of Alden's. I was inspecting them and found something disturbing. Is this grounds for an exchange? Definitely never have seen this before. I was so disappointed too cause I waited for the MA storm to die down :[ THe welt on the other shoe is uneven near where the heel connects to the sole(I forgot what this is called)

Can anyone chime in?

So then Hackett? TM Lewin? Charles Tyrwhitt? Probably Hackett is the best quality. Oh! Suitsupply. regular URL +/en. They're probably your best bet.

Green ties are great. I think white linen PS with green borders are great too one of the PSes I really like though I do think they go better with some more country colors than gray and navy jackets/suits.

I don't know what that is called either, but I do know I'd say seriously fuck that. Exchange for sure.

My question is what do you wear with a shirt when the weather is really hot?

Thanks in advance


If it is really hot... nothing.

Maybe something in cotton, linen... that will probably end up been kept at my arm and not on me.

What do you think to the fit of this shirt?

Hi all,

 

Does anybody have any opinion  on the French shoe brand Loding?

 

I ask because I can't find much information on them. But I've heard that the overall quality is decent and that they are made in France.

 

Is this true or not? As I am thinking of getting a pair from them.
