    Maybe it was the music, atmosphere, co-actor but the black suit/black tie and gray print shirt in the Heineken commercial looks smooth...is it a good look, or pass?

    Here is the links, sans black jacket:

    I don't like dark shirts with coat and tie either. But that shirt is horrible. Dark shirts with a tie make me think of mobsters, even if Regis made it "hip" for a few minutes.

    Farmgate: This is such a cool look! SF Groupthink: Lighter colors are elegant. Light blue shirts, white shirts, even light pink. Farmgate: But...but...but....it's cool! Even Jet Li does it! [​IMG] SF Groupthink:

    Notice also how his jacket sleeves are almost entirely swallowing his hands. And he has both buttons done up.

    No.

    But you could get a white shirt and be a Blues Brother.

    I don't like that shirt
    + I don't like black suits and black ties unless you are a employed by Marsellus Wallace.
    = I hate that combo

    Exactly, only idiots wear dark shirts with suits.
