    Hi

    I need advice please, I only joined this great community a few days ago. I have a professional photographer appointment that work had organised for professional pictures to be taken to be used on the company main website.

    I would like to ask what shirt colour/pattern and tie combination I should be wearing.

    Sadly I only have black suits, so have a pinstripe black suit that I will have to wear since I have nothing else yet. I didnt know navy is the work colour followed by charcoal.

    anyway any help picking out a shirt colour and tie is appreciated.

    Thanks

    Light blue tends to be used on TV as white can appear too harsh under lighting. It depends on how diffuse/good the photographer's lighting is. But as you have a black suit, I find a soft pink shirt and burgundy tie always looks good - although some might find this too dandy for professional applications.

    Ah I'm caught between an off the rack and a hard place...the MJbale suits arrived and I am quite happy with them but:
    :
    * the size 38 fits great in all areas except the chest bows a bit when the jacket is buttoned up. Is that fixable by a tailor you think? it feels like theres about 1cm of extra fabric along the back centre seam to potentially work with

    * the size 40 doesn't bow but I get mad collar gap (in theory this should exist on the size 38 but I didnt notice it) and in short even assuming thats fixable, between it and the other alterations required from the bigger size (across 2 suits it would be) I feel id be getting to the point where I possibly should have considered 2 MTM suits instead.

    Maybe I will just have to take them to the tailor for an opinion but any thoughts from you guys would be greatly appreciated..

    Someone should start an Australian Members SWD thread. To save my eyes.

    Gerry, you could probably wear an actual sock around your neck and still look a million bucks.

    I think that it would have to be a woollen stocking or legging rather than a sock, otherwise it wouldn't have sufficient length!

    True enough. Though I could see Gerry convincing Vanda to stitch a couple of Bresciani OTCs together as a custom job.

    Mate, I'm shouting coffees next time we catch up [​IMG]

    That one's by High Tied from our own Tobiasj - I have to say it gets complimented every time I've worn it.

    The Mens shop have a few suits on sale, is there any quality item that is worth purchasing. Prices seem reasonable, I am after business suits (navy and charcoal).

    Testimonials from Max Walker and Tom Williams? Is that supposed to fill me with confidence?
