    I'm never entirely sure how to wear a striped shirt and tie. You make it look easy.

    NICE jacket, good shoes... the rest of the ensemble isn't me; but that's great, it works. I am just not that stand-outish! I prefer understatement. :)

    I didn't want to derail the shoe porn thread with the question, but since you've ventured over here into the shark tank... Are all of your shoes shell?

    no

    Excellent--with the qualification that we can't see your pants.

    I am normally hateful of multi-point folded linen like you have here, but the rest of your execution is good enough to compensate. :)

    P., a silk cream square would have really elevated this. Right now, it is too binary. Not a disaster by any stretch, but the potential is there for greatness and it was just barely missed.

    Thanks, I had a feeling you would hate the white on white. I have actually begun to think about cream linen for the future to break that "binary-ness" especially considering all of my white shirts.

    Cream linen sounds like a strange beast. Since we are so used to seeing crisp, white linen, it seems likely to come across as dirty or aged. Silk, my friend. Silk.

    I think binary was the point. Let's face it, foo, you just don't like binary, whcih is fine, but some of us do like it from time to time.

    That said, with a fuzzy suit AND a fuzzy tie, I would have reached for a silk square.

    No, I don't like it. I don't even like perfectly binary when it comes to black tie. That's why I like cream silk in that application more than white linen. Going all-out binary always strikes me as conspicuously contrived.

    But yet, I understand most authorities say a white square is always correct with a white shirt.

    Very nice, PB. Love that thick fuzzy flannel.

    Also, love the forward pleats.

    If it was a standard navy blazer color I would agree, but the jacket is a bit brighter blue so, in this case charcoal works.

    No photos. Just believe me. :)
