    Hey everybody,

    Do these 3 items go together? Any and all opinions are welcome.

    Its a light blue shirt (Hard to tell from picture)

    Thanks

    It's tough to be sure, but in that dim lighting, it looks ok. The lapels are too slim IMO. I'm a proponent of slim lapels, but not that slim.

    It's funny you're not the first person to tell me that about the lapels. I dunno if its a European thing, but I bought the suit from Milan (Versace Collection).

    Yes. Faddishly thin. They'll look very dated before the suit shows noticeable wear.

    The shirt, tie and jacket do indeed go together,

    The three items look fine together, but take note that a lot of people on here (me included) prefer: more generous lapels; a wider tie (3"-3.5"); a tie 'dimple'; spread shirt collars with points long enough to sit under your jacket lapel; pocket squares!

    ...And I would say throw in a nice tie bar for good measure...

    The tie width isn't bad, but those lapels are too slim for anything other than a fashion suit.
