Regarding the wearing of checked shirts, these days I think I buy a lot of my shirts and ties based on Simon Crompton's Italian Background theory.

http://www.permanentstyle.co.uk/2008/04/italian-background.html

In saying that I find soft pink and white work just as well as blue for the shirt. And if the shirt and coat are fairly plain a brighter or more pattern tie works. Same goes for working a more detailed shirt.

Basically, the easiest way to make up an outfit is to keep 2 out of the 3 main elements (shirt, coat, tie) pretty plain (solid or very faint pattern like pencil stripe on shirt or small motif on tie) and then the 3rd can be a little more adventurous/bright etc. Then add a pocket square (a must for me, even if only white linen).

Alternatively lose the tie when wearing brighter or bolder shirts.

Here is the green shirt. I paired it with a dark blue solid tie the other day. Seemed to work ok- don't know if I have any other ties that work.
On my screen, that green looks quite light, and a very summery shade. I think a dark blue tie is a natural partner (the inside cuffs are a bit of a hint), but preferably you want something with a bit of texture like a grenadine, rather than a smooth silk. Wool would also be casual enough but too wintery.

Another possible option is purple, though it would have to be the right type of purple. You might make pink socks homesick though as green + purple is a very Scottish combo; something to do with the heather and the thistles apparently...

^I posted this one as one of my first fits. It's a three-piece peak SB from Peter Lee in his house fabric (didn't want to pay for H&S or whatever books he had on a trial suit with no basted fitting). Some high supers cashmere blend lol. He seems only able to do half-lined and not quarter-lined. The shoulder is too structured for my liking. Lining is an FU bemberg silver paisley which another regrettable decision. At the end of the day, ended up with a usable summer suit.



Brother was more successful with Y William Yu, doing CMT with some H Lesser fabrics, quarter lined and self lined with minimal shoulder (the canvas only). Turned out great so good on him.

Thanks! Lol at tv remote :P Also thoughts on Cream/brown horn buttons on a casual jacket (blue safari jacket)?

Congrats Jason on the birth of your daughter.

 

In other wonderful news, I have decided that my lovely C&J Connaughts are about 3mm too short. Why is that wonderful? Because someone here will have the opportunity to pick these up for a song somewhat less than a new pair.

 

They're only very lightly worn, size 7.5E UK, topied, and come with original box and bags.

Yours for $325 (trees not included, +postage as required).

 

PM me if interested.

Hey, I wanted to go wrap-free. The wife is a neat freak tongue.gif

Brown horn is safe for a blazer suit. I've gone with smoke MOP for two of mine so far.

I'm watching the US version right now. It's fantastic. Just had a weird meta moment when I was watching Kevin Spacey polishing his shoes on HOC while waiting for my Saphir Renovator to dry on my shoes and reading style forum about HOC. Circle of life.

Congrats mate great news!

Let me tell you the proud feeling doesn't subside and for me my perspective on life definitely has changed.
