did you use tie pin with a button down collar?
While I'm not religious about the no dark suede before jabor day rule, these shoes are not the best choice against the rest.
@ Omar yes i did
On a personal sidenote, are you an academic at one of the colleges?
I've been to Oxford once for three weeks of language school and stayed at Hertford College.
Had one of the greatest times of my life over there and am still in love with the city.
You should play with scale.
Everything you have on today has a small scale. Small tie pattern, small striped suit, small striped shirt.
Try varying it a bit. Even a solid shirt would improve this look. But with everything do small, it looks too busy.
Holdfast I like your outfit for today!
Swell tie. Brown linen?
Please stop doing that.
I like the brown suede. It grounds the rest of the outfit.
You make a good point there. I personally like using collar pins on oxford collars because they are not as stiff.
As long as he's not buttoning the collar points, I don't think it's horrible for Tirailleur to use the pin with that shirt. If he insists on using the pin, that is...
For DB, there are lower cuts and higher cuts, both with be found in Mr. claymore'spgotos and the armory boys.
In my opinion, DB only looks good if they are cut slightly longer than single breasted. Short makes the proportion bulky.
Button position is still on natural waist, just further away or closer to create a close or open chest.
shoes are the sex
deets on shoes
Thank you for the comments. As for the answers: shoes are not too big, the fit is great and it never hurts my feet. I do like a more roomy shoe though...
As for scales: I can see that. I do love this shirt when I am tieless. I did like the combo, even though I was thinking of a solid purple tie but could not find it in a rush to the meeting I was attending. I wanted something busy, but I realize I may have gone overboard with it.
Regarding academics: I am faculty in Brazil and China. I would not mind teaching at Oxbridge, maybe one day....
A.J.V were did you buy your shoes?
