    Purchased this shirt NWT at a reasonable price on eBay, now I need help wearing it. Can I do better than the blue jacket? The yellow jacket? Is the full windsor enough? Is this collar intended for a bow tie? Can I wear the shirt without a coat and tie? The coloring, collar and french cuffs pose a pit of a challenge to me. Thanks guys,

    P.S. Where did that avatar come from, and do you guys feel the text in the last post column is at all helpful?

    Do not wear with the yellow jacket. With the blue jacket and tie that is one of your best looks, you don't need to look any further.

    I like the shirt. Collar seems fine and the colors in it make it easy to play off of. That being said, the yellow jacket is WAY too much IMHO. Perhaps you could wear a navy jacket and try some yellow pants if you really want some GTH flavor? Jacket and shirt are just too much. Stick to the navy.

    Keep the tie simple, navy grenadine, navy polkadot/pindot, and the suit dark like navy or charcoal, and you will have a very nice look.

    Wrong blue. If you have one it'd look best with a cream linen jacket.

    3rd look is the best of the pictured ones.

    This. About the ties. Especially the grenadine.

    I think the blue jacket is good, but with the checks on the jacket and the stripes on the shirt, I'd avoid any more patterns in the tie. If you have a solid navy tie with texture, that's the winning look right there, imo.

    Additionally, PT, that is a beautiful green and congratulations on your purchase. Also, pertaining to the tie issue, have a look at this wonderful tip from Wil. It may answer your question.
