Discussion in 'Classic Menswear' started by Claghorn, Jan 6, 2014.
Here are my observations in SF (waywrn):
Jackets - Lots of variety
Shirts - Mainly blue based
Ties - Lots of variety
Pants - Grey or navy based
Shoes - Brown or black based
There are good reasons why it is this way. I mean, who wants to wear a red shirt or a pair of red shoes?
Just saw them. That is terrible!
red shoes are a problem? even burgundy shell?
When I say red, I mean red.
These aren't red?
Oxblood is close to red, but not red. Maybe in the red family.
The bordeaux/burgundy/oxblood family is easy to use and great. Noodles should get some oxblood to go with his navy and grey suits. #8 for me today.
Beautiful shoes, but closer to brown than red.
I have a shirt in Carlo Riva cotton, absolutely exquisite, and it is white with the sharpest navy blue pinstripe. It is worn like a white shirt.
My Allen Edmonds Shells look more reddish in direct sunlight. But I understand now what you meant.
Today - a bit more colorful than usual for me. I will try to add a full shot later - I can't photograph myself at a distance with a 50mm lens!
Pocket Square: Stefano Ricci
Trousers: Brooks brothers (wool!!!)
Shoes: Gaziano and Girling
Shirt: local shop
I was just commenting on the base colors (as they appear on my monitor which may be different than yours) not the quality of shirt or material.
Guys look what I found!

I have started to like patterned blue shirts now! Don't like solid blue as much though. I think the blue + white in the patten gives it more contrast while still being blue which I think suits my preferences and perhaps complexion/hair more.
I really love your tie in this - where is it from?
Agree. Especially with pink: When you want it to work it must be so very pale. Same with Lavender, and a good selection of blues.
