    clags, i think you did well with the color combo. though some will never like a white shirt and SC, i am not one of those people. however, it looks like a white on white stripe, i dont love those.

    also, the tie seems a bit too slick for that country SC, maybe try a wool, or cashmere, something with more texture, softer and earthier.


    noap!

    Brudduh, truer words hath never been spoken. I've been looking for a navy SC for a while now. Hell, I even have a Borreli shirt I'm trying to trade to get one (shameless self plug). I'm also trying to land me some tweeds as well, as I have a lot of earthy trousers to work with. For what it's worth, I really don't disagree with anything in your first post. I just thought I'd give the rationale for the fit.

    I believe today's is decidedly better, and tradly as hell. I only wish the tie was a touch wider to balance the lapels.

    Haven't suited up for work in a long time. Forgot how great it feels when I do. It's like the next step up from the odd jacket & trousers look.

    I'd have worn black shoes, but the new ones I just got haven't arrived yet. Can't wait!!!

    Wore a red sweater over my shoulders this morning. I think I remember PG doing that back in the day.

    May I ask what industry do you work in? To my knowledge Seoul is UCBD. :puzzled:

    The shirt is actually pink on pink. But what you said about the tie is dead on. My collection of ties is almost entirely on that level of formality. I have very few color options when it comes to rougher more casual ties. I added quite a few in October, but I'm trying to do MoL's challenge for November/December. Fortunately, my birthday was last Tuesday, and I gave my fiance a dozen or so options from HY and KW, so I should be getting a few more informal ties in the next week.

    It's odd...I love ties, but I don't need to wear a suit anymore. I had all these ties sitting around that I love but don't get to wear too much...basically whenever it was cool enough to wear a cardigan. I had a decent number of odd jackets as well, but I generally wore those without ties (I have no idea why). I joined SF so I could figure out a way to wear all my ties again without being reliant on cardigans and without needing to wear a full suit. Instead, I find myself buying more ties. I mean, I'm totally happy about buying more ties. I love ties...

    but damn you SF!


    If UCBD = ultra conservative business dress...you are sort of right.

    I used to work in a very large Korean logistics company, which is why I have all the formal suiting left over. Totally CBD. Any ounce of individuality in my outfits would be scrutinized as I was white in a Korean company. As far as the "sort of"...during the summer, everybody wears short sleeve collared shirts. I was the only one in long sleeves most of the time because fuck if I'm wearing short sleeves and a tie. Oh yeah, and the taste in ties here is just bloody awful.

    I actually have a couple architect friends here and they dress very SF WAYWRN.

    Now I research and teach, so quite a bit less formal. I don't even need to wear a tie unless I have a meeting or something.

    lol, yup, you think you have a collection, and BOOM!! ITS WORTHLESS LOL!

    i would say based on my experience, start retooling with some solid grenadines, find some nice wools/cashmeres/blends in solid/herringbone/POW/small stripe and other simple patterns, and you will be in good shape.

    yay ties! :)


    noice! and FTFY

    Hi gents! This is as of yesterday. I was all the day at the office, so I tried this combo (luckily for me, at the office there are not to many people). I wanted to try it, cuase that shirt I don't know with what tie I could use it with a blue suit. I think a lighter grey tie would work fine. But any other colour recommendations? Thanks!

    That shirt is definitely a doozy. If you are against getting rid of it, I would suggest wearing it in a more casual sense. Possibly wearing it without a tie and with a navy or black blazer. Also, the shirt only seems appropriate for a night on the town.

    This is your first fit I have put a STOP sign on. That shirt is really tricky...maybe a light solid yellow tie?
