    Definitely great with blue or black jeans- even some of the other colors like khaki that Zegna and Loro Piana are selling this season. Dunno about the pleats, though...Flat fronts are probably a better bet. And I wouldn't do the distressed, unless you (like me, frequently [​IMG] ) are trying to look younger than you are.

    Absolutely, untucked. I think they're great shirts. In fact I covet the Zegna [​IMG] .

    I like the second shirt. But then I would have chosen a more colorful tie to add a bit of variety to an otherwise drab ensemble.

    Albeit the tie is also Versace but perhaps one their Baroque pieces would be more suited.

    The first shirt could be suited for a pair of slim pintriped/chalkstriped trousers. The third one as well to add a bit of dichotomy.

    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
    2- for women or gay if you prefer 3- thread of sewing are like jeans and color is too dark

    I do not like linen = better take a super 120 cotton shirt or a polo.

    Linen means hot weather and casual

    Hot weather and casual means NO black NO tie

    Tie with linen = ridiculious

    It can be done if one has enough innovation to pull it off.

    As far as jeans go, here are my suggestions: I would stay away from pleated. My suggestion would be something in a medium low rise (nothing extreme), dark wash with light fading (slight distressing, but no huge rips or patches), and slim-cut with maybe a slight boot-fit. Something along the lines of Helmut Lang would be ideal. That white or cream Versace shirt is gorgeous, (if you decide against it I'd be happy to take it off your hands [​IMG] ). I would pair that with the aforementioned jeans. I can't tell if the shirt tails are long on it, but if they are I would recommend tucking the shirt in loosely. The shirt is sleek and minimalistic, so I would recommend slim, dark, Helmut Lang-style jeans to match. As far as the Zegna shirt goes, try cream-colored linen/cotton flat-front slacks worn with brown suede buckle loafers (in the style of Ferragamo, Gucci, or Bruno Magli) with the shirt tucked in. Or, try a pair of cream 100% linen looser-fitting drawstring slacks worn with brown leather slide-style sandals and with the shirt untucked. I am drawing a blank with the blue Versace shirt. It has some western-style touches (the decorative stitching along the collar edges) so perhaps you could tie that in somehow.

    I'd probably suggest a pair of slightly distressed, medium rise, boot-cut, flat front blue jeans and a single breasted navy sportcoat. But then I'm a sartorially-challenged midlunder [​IMG] Gaz -x-

    I like the Versace shirt too, but not the little metal logo dealy. I'd wear it untucked, sleeves rolled up and with boot-cut jeans. Do they even make pleated jeans? [​IMG]

    Pleated Jeans (to some extent) [​IMG] Ernest, I too can be blunt; Polo Shirt = For wannabe men, who try and look rich,or new money. If the occasion is less formal, bloody hell just wear a T-Shirt. And no I do not preffer gay

    Ernest,

    Yes, so go ahead, and think that you look good, in your light colours. I am of the opinion that black is the only colour, which can always look good.

    I am of course not talking about just shirts.


    Versaceman, the shirt is cream

    Ernest, But of course a T-Shirt like this is way out of your budget. (I do not think you could even dream what the price was) [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
