Not to totally derail the thread, but who are you having make it up?
Maybe if you were doing it as a DB, but as long as you are serious when you're wearing it. The chalk isn't super loud or bright, its just an accent.
This is the 0.75" Fox, right? To my eye, it's neither so wide as to be costumey nor so narrow as to be dandyish. Maybe this one just needs to percolate for a while.
That first picture is absolutely glorious, and I think it could be worn in all except the most conservative of environments. Is that the .75" fox? Or is it just something similar.
It is the Navy wide fox.
The navy "wide" fox is the Classic Navy Chalkstripe
So knit pindot ties with peak chalk stripes suits are a thing? Did I miss something? I always thought of them as polar opposites.
You're not allowed to ask such questions until such time you've owned a chalk stripe peak lapel suit (or at the very least are actually planning to order one).
Once you wear the chalk stripe peak lapel suit, you don't need to ask that question. You simply Know.
that you shouldn't be wearing those two together... but still.
Have you been in the same position at your job for a while now? Think you have worked hard and are due a promotion? Have you earned it?
Buy this navy chalk stripe suit. You deserve it.
Not only have you worked hard...but...when the people in your workplace see you in this suit...you will certainly be promoted on the spot for being a FUCKING BOSS.
You forgot the disclaimer for those like myself
*Does not apply if you work for the federal government*
Does it apply when you are the boss?
I've still not come around on a stripe suit for myself, I've just never seen one that was quite right. I never thought much about my reasons why until I read this - it's exactly what my hesitations have been; it's like you read my mind for me. If this isn't the perfect middle-of-the-road stripes, it's at least straddling costume'y and dandy'ish well enough for me to seriously consider; as in for the first time "I can see myself in those stripes"
Except in the case where you are a BOSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS....says JFK, Regan, and Clinton.
*disclaimer....these suits are all pinstripes and not chalkstripes...w/e...still boss.
I think it shows you are the boss.
