Because chinos are relatively casual pants, and tie-with-sweater tends to be more casual than tie-with-suit, I'd go with a more casual black necktie. Say, a black silk knit. It'd cost you $15 from The Tie Bar - http://www.thetiebar.com/categoryPages/All_Ties.asp?pg=0&categoryIds=31,62,67&optionValueIds=
Not saying that black's the only good choice. Just that it's a choice worth considering.

Hey, thanks for the response. Actually I'm really not a fan of black ties either, are there any other colors you think would look good?

Khaki chinos, beeswax Clark's desert boots...what kind of shirt and tie would be good with this? I was thinking of some kind of checkered white shirt, but don't know about the tie.

And, is khaki fine to wear during colder months like these or does it look too summer-y?

I would do a light blue oxford cloth button down shirt. Or maybe a bengal striped oxford cloth button down shirt. Sport coats would look ok with this over it all as well. I wouldn't wear a tie with this ensemble, but if you do I would go for something in the olive family. Maybe an olive shatung, or wool tie.

I wouldn't be wearing anything over the shirt. What kind of shirt would work well if I wanted to wear a tie though? And with what kind of tie?

Thank you!

don't wear a tie if you aren't going to be wearing anything on top of the shirt
that is the styleforum approved advice

Yeah, ties shouldn't go with such a casual bottom half and no sport coat. The only kind of shirt (OCBD) that really goes with that bottom half shouldn't really have a tie with it to begin with. If you wear a dressier shirt, like a spread collar it will look really bad with that bottom, especially if you have a tie on with it.

My personal opinion is that if you are wearing a tie you must have a jacket of some sort on. The whole tie with no jacket is a bad look.

Alright then, well since I shouldn't wear a tie, should I opt for a patterned shirt just to make the outfit stand out a bit more? I'm still a noob at this but, wouldn't just khaki chinos and a plain color shirt look kinda bland?

Jackets with shoulder length visibility longer than that of the natural shoulder length - is it "in" again?

This dude, who penned a book called "Bespoke: The Men's Style of Savile Row " with a forward written by "Tom Ford" thinks so. He also seems pretty proud of it in this picture.

My question is - is this considered a legitimate "style" of certain houses (such as that of H Huntsman, as pointed in this thread?) Cheers!

Also, I expressed myself badly. I'd like to wear chinos or some kind of suit like pants (sorry I don't know the word). I just don't want to wear khaki jeans.

EDIT: Chinos or khaki dress pants I guess is what I mean.

I want some feed back on two fits.  First is a suit by J. Crew that has not be tailored yet, however, I'm going to at least hem the pants.  What do you think I need to get done to this suit?

The next fit is my overcoat.  My ridiculously skinny legs make this look very baggy but in fact, it is quite snug in the chest area.  What do you think about this?

I apologize for the shitty quality pictures and for them being horizontal.  On my computer they are vertical so I don't know why they show up here as horizontal.

I need to order a scarf online for my wife, so I don't have the chance to feel and compare.

J.Crew's cashmere tends to be really crappy. Their lambswool is a lot better.

The lambswool cardigans I tried on where terribly itchy. I like their cotton offerings best.

Sierra Trading Post usually has Johnstons of Elgin cashmere scarves for $40 or less with coupons. They seem to be out of stock right now, but I'm sure they'll be back.
