    Depends on the shade of green. Dudes incorporate green here all the time and it can look great. It may simply be that you need to get the right shade of green to go with your suits.

    Buy more ties. Eventually, you'll find some which strike you as going well with your gray or navy suits. :)

    You know, given that it's the hot and humid south, you could even change it up and choose a bow tie, once in a while. Not too often, since you don't want the people at your office to start thinking of you as "that bow tie guy." But now and then.

    Or how about a white cotton pocket square, with a green border? And that'd only set you back around $8, from The Tie Bar, so if you wound up hating it you wouldn't be out much green.

    Do you wear eyeglasses, even if only for reading? An inexpensive pair of green eyeglass frames could be one way to obey your corporate orders to display green.

    Even a green leather strap for a wristwatch might do the trick.

    I'm from the UK what brands produce suits of similar quality to Hugo Boss but without the massive mark up for the designer name?

    Thanks!

    Great ideas, thank you. To be fair, it's possible that I'm just wearing the wrong shirts with those grey and navy suits to "bridge the gap" to my green ties. I like some of those other options, though. I wear contacts, but I do have a pair of glasses if my eyes are irritated or I want to give them a rest, so that might actually work.

    So then Hackett? TM Lewin? Charles Tyrwhitt? Probably Hackett is the best quality. Oh! Suitsupply. regular URL +/en. They're probably your best bet.

    Green ties are great. I think white linen PS with green borders are great too one of the PSes I really like though I do think they go better with some more country colors than gray and navy jackets/suits.

    I don't know what that is called either, but I do know I'd say seriously fuck that. Exchange for sure.

    If it is really hot... nothing.
    Maybe something in cotton, linen... that will probably end up been kept at my arm and not on me.

    Hi all,

    Does anybody have any opinion on the French shoe brand Loding?

    I ask because I can't find much information on them. But I've heard that the overall quality is decent and that they are made in France.

    Is this true or not? As I am thinking of getting a pair from them.

    Cross post:
    Can anyone recommend any members who may provide a little guidance on a menswear accessory prototype I'm working on? It may seem a bit childish, but I'm hesitant to post pictures and have the idea "borrowed". By all means it's nothing revolutionary, justLooking to have some discreet and professional input

    Cheers

    The fit is fine. i'm not one to prefer shirts be skin tight in the torso.

    Just a friendly suggestion. A black shirt like that is not the greatest of looks [​IMG]

    Thanks for your response! :) Do you think the fit of my pink striped shirt is okay too?

    I do think that the black shirt is a bit too skin tight!

    I'm intrested to hear why you think wearing a black shirt like I have in that pic is not a good look. Please do tell I would really appreciate it :)

    Does anyone have a recommendation for Linen or Cotton-Linen trousers under $150? I'd like to buy some before going on vacation in a month, and stores in Chicago certainly aren't carrying them right now.

    Thanks

    *EDIT* Tropical weight wool would work as well.
