    Lies


    I would think that one should vote for the latter, which is why I think it might not be the best idea for an FC, lol. Also, I would think that many of us have sold off our biggest mistakes at this point.

    This is why you need an odd jacket/ blazer or you could have just ditched the tie.

    Black shoes/belt doesn't work with that outfit either. No tie and brown loafers would look nice, or a navy sportcoat and brown shoes, or navy sportcoat and grey pants.

    I wanted a brown belt and somewhat casual brown shoes of which I do not have.

    Shirt and pants look is what it is. Getting rid of the tie is the best he can do working with what he owns.

    Yes, please stop wearing ties without a jacket. Also please don't roll up your sleeves when wearing a tie.

    While on the subject of Suit Supply, does anyone know which of their models has the lowest buttoning point?

    Cheers,

    Lazio, London and La spalla/Jort. The buttoning point on the Soho isn't bad either, but it's a DB.

    i wear dress pants and button down shirt, no jacket or tie, sleeves rolled, most days during the summer. noodles, you just need some lighter colored dress pants, summer weight preferably, some chilled brown shoes and a brown belt, and you are good to go.

    +1 - a lot of ginghams and various check patterns for me in the summer.

    Once July hits Boston, even the lightest of linen or linen blend jackets can still be overbearing.
