Henry Carter Chocolate knit

I think so.
Perhaps with a darker grey, or a charcoal. Light grey with pink might look too washed out.
Foxhound, if I were you Id get a nice suit, but put some serious thought into it.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
It wasn't too long ago that I got my first suit, and had versatility in mind.
I ended up with a midnight blue herringbone fabric, and a timeless/ classic cut and style (ie proper length so that it covers your arse, roped shoulders minimal padding, medium width lapel, single break pants etc etc). This seriously looks awesome in almost any setting: wedding, funeral, work, dates, races, theatre, daytime/ nighttime.
But I have the mindset that;
- fabric and fit are most important (you could have 2 blokes wearing the same nicely fitting suit and style, but the great material on one means it doesn't look so 'card-boardy and bland')
- with a classic style, you can just chop and change as you please: the suit is a blank canvas
- Ive also got this thing now about soft shoulders. In the above suit they would not work versatility wise: I think the soft shoulders make jackets far more casual.
BTW I think Gerrys suiting style is fkn awesome
His pic on the previous page for example...To the trained eye you can tell each item is quality, but he dresses understated.
Even the untrained eye would notice it not because he's dandied up, but because 'something is just right' about it. And many would consider it bland.
...Just wanted to add a big shout out to wool and leather
Excellent points, Burnso. And not just about GN's suiting :)
Yes, I kind of agree. It is a 'youthful' look. It's like men's fragrances. People often associate the sweeter notes with femininity. Yet, on the right person the smell can be excellent, as with a pink shirt and light grey suit.
So for those people that don't have overly masculine features, or are quite youthful in their aesthetic, pink and grey and sweeter colognes can really work well. But if you're quite masculine in presence (beard, broad shouldered etc.) then dressing with baby pink can be too much of a contrast.
It might, I was thinking something along these lines:
