    Actually it's pretty cool but I think the matching went little bad. As the tie and the ps. I would wear a plain white pocket square and the tie is to long. And it would be nicer if the shirt was blue and the collar was white. Like the braces ;)

    Thank you.

    I like to mismatch colors. I usually do not do it well. Today was not an exception. I almost never wear a white handkerchief with a shirt that has a white body (too "matchy-matchy", as people would say here). The shirt is the result of an experiment with a white shirt whose cuffs had to be replaced, while a matching white shirting fabric was unavailable.

    I did acknowledge the tie was long...

    That's damn near sig-worthy.

    I don't even wear a tie to semi-formal stuff, much less on a Saturday afternoon.

    To each his own, I guess.

    Suit looks like it fits well and the square is perfectly fine on its own, but definitely not with the rest of the ensemble. The shirt is not good and the suspenders would only work if you're going for a sort of Orville Redenbacher vibe. The overall effect is not awesome.

    A simple white shirt (no contrast collar), a dark tie and a white square would turn this around completely.

    Suckcess! I am honored.

    As I stated, no white handkerchief with a white-bodied shirt. End of story. I am a [​IMG] on that matter.

    Alexander Kabbaz-Kelly would agree with you regarding the shirt, but there was not much I could do to save it. Oh well...

    The tie is a rather deep burgundy, yet the colour is washed out in the photograph. I do not believe the tie is the problem in this outfit. I also think something darker would not look good. To each his own.

    I thought Thurston braces were Styleforum-approved. What is wrong with them?

    Very sad that this is likely the last time I can wear my favorite flannel suit for the season. Hopefully I sent it out with a bang. Have a happy St. Patricks day folks and a lovely weekend.

    Do you always carry your little doggie around in that bag?

    No. I assure you that, if there was anything I could have done, I would have done it. The cuffs had some major issues. My shirtmaker also admitted they had to go. I believed him.

    Worry not, forum people. The shirt, as well as the rest of the outfit, never left my house. No, I did not wear it just to take photographs. That would have been worrying.
