    Would you wear this shirt? And if so, with what?

    I received this about 3 years ago as a gift when multiple stripes were very fashionable. The shirt fits great but is not exactly my style (too many stripes) so I have only worn it a few times. Was cleaning out the closet and the wife said she liked it so I figured I would gie it another chance.

    Any suggestions on pant and/or jacket colours or should I slip it into the goodwill bag?

    Yeah I think it's nice. Brown slacks, or navy suit no tie... maybe even beige/kackie pants and a navy or brown sports coat

    I wouldn't wear it. Not a fan of the stripe pattern.

    This shirt is all right and quite versatile....
    You can wear it with jeans ,with a wool/suit suits and the colours available in the stripes will get you a lot of different possible combi..
    i would not kill for it....
    I have one shirt from Aqua and i was a bit diasappointed by the quality of the cottn ,to be frank...
    A few washes and the shirt had started to lose its shape!!!!

    Sounds good and without a tie, keep it casual.

    +1. Especially not with (distressed) jeans, which would make the quintessential amjack look.

    The shirt is an absolute classic (and may have become even more so by hanging in your closet a few years). I think it creates a lovely mood.

    I would prefer it with a tie or a bow tie, unless I was just trying to look like I had suddenly decided to get more comfortable and had taken the tie off.

    Just start wearing it, and I imagine you'll discover its versatility.

    it wouldn't be my 1st choice; but a pair of white chinos seems appropriate
