Does this work with a med grey suit?

(Light blue shirt, Burgundy grenadine tie, yellow/gold PS)

Shirt and tie definitely, not a fan of the square though.

That was my hang up as well, any suggestions for a matching summer-esque PS other than white? I suppose I alternatively, I could go purple tie/ yellow ps?

Yellow is not a color I would wear for a PS at all. White would work well, or cream. With a different color tie (say, navy) you could get away with some sort of burgundy pattern.

Squares are hard, and I'm by no means an expert. Avoid solid or solid-like colors (aside from white/cream), or anything in a tie-like pattern. Large scale patterns that when puffed are not recognizable for the pattern (e.g. the famous Rubinacci Victory square) work well.

Count me among those who vote against the pocket square.

And sweet zombie Jebus, is there some law where you are making it a crime to iron your shirt? Because that thing's go more wrinkles than a litter of Shar Pei puppies.

Haha, I just pulled it out of the closet for color.

Hi,

Having recently purchased the attached pair of shoes, I have a few questions regarding proper maintenance, as this is my first couple of cognac or brown colored shoes, actually.

 

I would like to make sure to maintain the overall relatively bright color of the shoe for now, so I'm thinking a light brown or light tan polish would do, as long as it's not darker than the current color. Would this maintain the current finish, including the somewhat darker tip? Alternatively, I could probably use a somewhat darker brown for the front part..

Does that sound about right?

 

And secondly, I do like the black contrasting part in the back and the stitches in gerenal. What's the best way to take care of these areas without applying any of the brown color here? Use some neutral polish around these areas? Just being very careful around these areas when applying a light tan polish? Or rather leave them as they are without polishing these spots?

 

Many thanks for your advice on these rather novice questions!

What shoe is that? I can't give you advice but I'll say I dig the shoe. Most of it.

You've been here since 2010 and you ask if a blue shirt and burgundy grenadine tie go with a grey suit.

 

Get out.

 

(real talk, the pocket square should stand out without standing out too much. This square stands out too much. It asks for something else from the shirt AND jacket. Get a white cotton square to go with the grenadine, blue and grey. That's what they scream for)

 

(edit for clarity: I need to rephrase. The PS doesn't ask anything, it's everything else that does the asking. If the PS is the loudest, after you have it all on, it needs to go. That's my view. It can be equally as loud, but not the loudest. The tie, shirt and jacket scream for simplicity. That's not simplicity.)

That's a Floris van Bommel (Model #14095/00, I think).

post #22707 of 28243

A quick google on the brand doesn't show much. But I really do like the last shape and the shoe design. Excluding the stitching and weird thing in the back. And the laces. I'd sport those no problem.

I'm not sure if they sell those in the US, though.
Van Bommel (of which "Floris van Bommel" is an offspring) is a rather classy brand here in Europe, I think.

 

Anyways, anyone with some advice on how to take care of them (probabaly that's a very easy and basic answer :) ).

Well, good looking pair of shoes. 

 

Search for the shoe care thread. It's got pages and pages. Just read from the start, the first few pages. It'll have some tutorials on it. I personally use Glen Karen but not many here do. I am satisfied with it. And Glen is more than helpful with any shoe care questions I have.

eta: here's his blog. Herein lies proof of knowledge.

SHABAMALAM. Long time lurker.

Alright so two combinations with the same tie below, which works better? If any. I kinda want to rock a popping tie on a dark shirt but having a hard time determining how I want to pull it off. Think of this under a light grey linen/wool suit jacket.





If neither work I appreciate any direction.

Forgive me for the shitty PS job it was really quick biggrin.gif

Cheers.
