    I've bought these 3 shirts recently, but not worn any of them yet, because I cannot seem to match them very easily, any suggestions please? Also, note the features on the Zegna shirt, I was quite surprised with them for the price. As you can see the Versace ones are somewhat casual, so even more problems to match it [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'm surprised you've found them hard to match. Why not with khaki's? Or jeans? Or, for slightly dressier, grey wool flannels?

    I acutally don't wear kahki's very much, as I am in the UK (LOL)

    What type of jeans would you suggest, low rise, or pehaps the pleated style like Prada and Fendi make? Also, tucked in or not?

    Would you say a dark or light pair of trousers and for which shirt?

    Oh yes, and also what do you guys think of them?

    Personaly, they are not the greatest shirts in the world, but more so something a little different for me.

    They are for fashion victims who lives for the label.

    1 = too many strips

    2 = for girl

    3 = for cowboys

    1- I would possibly agree with you

    2- No, pehaps the cut is a little odd, but when worn it does not look like a womans shirt.

    2- It is NOT denim. It is a cotton and linen blend

    I like the first two shirts, the third one not so much. The first is a good shirt for summer casual wear - probably best with some lighter coloured jeans and a more substantial belt (at least 1.5 inches wide) and maybe sneakers or sandals. It could also be worn casually under a lighter colored suit. The second shirt is definitely hot weather beach or clubwear, depending on how it fits you, and how much you button it up.

    Ernest, tu es vraiment tres mechant aux autres. C'est a cause des problemes avec ta mere?

    Ernest, I do not mind the fact that you are honest i.e. the comment about the first shirt, but if you are going to give uneducated inferences, because you cannot see it properly, please do not. Note the fact that you thought a blue and white striped shirt was denim. Moreover, if you were being sincere about the second shirt, I truly wonder how few linen shirts you have seen in your life.

    Would this be taking a linen shirt somewhat too far? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Depends on the weight of the suit. If it is linen, cotton or tropical weight wool (no more that 9 ounce, and crepe would be ideal) or a light wool/silk or cotton/linen blend, the combination should be fine. In any case, I would nix the tie, or wear it very loosely. Linen shirts generally look better a little dressed down.

    I too would, in most circumstances, do away with the tie, but the collar looks somewhat empty without, being that it also has removable collar stays, [​IMG] which I find somewhat odd to say the least, on a linen shirt.

    Adding my 2 cents, all the shirts would go great with jeans.

    Everyone suggests jeans, but I am still unsure what type people mean, as I asked before, the low rise type, or pleated type (i.e. Fendi and Prada). and also Dark or Light, Distressed a little or flawless, and should I tuck the shirt or not?

    I would think any pair of flat-front blue jeans with some character (rips, fading, what have you) would look fine. Leave shirts untucked.

    IMO, flat front, faded regular fit jeans with the shirt untucked. These will show off the shirt and not the jeans.
    Depending on where I was going, and the temperature, I would even suggest a navy suit jacket or blazer.
