    Ah, the photo makes the jacket look like a shade of purple very close to the tie. In any case, I do think black would have worked better here. Great FU SC though.

    I don't think a black tie is going to save this.

    Trying to get past the jacket, but the shirt and tie are definitively not good, IMO. Such a jacket ask for a more casual shirt (light blue OCBD would be the obvious choice) and for a sober tie still in the casual side (black knit? navy blue knit?).
    Could you take another photograph with a better color representation of the jacket? It looks very Joker-ish, which, IMO, is not good.

    a light blue shirt looks ridiculous with this. I can MAYBE get behind the idea of a black knit. but not with a light blue ocbd. ...or any shirt other than white.

    The jacket is loud as fuck and plaid. regardless if the hue is a light burgundy, or bright burgundy...that wont change the fact that its plaid.

    definitely not. I thought maybe a different shirt other than white would work. nope. white is it.

    If you're going to pair it with a white shirt, I'd advice you to make sure that the shirt collar is as casual as the jacket.

    how do you figure the jacket is casual? its actually a suit...no patch pockets, smooth texture, ....... i would agree if it were a heavy flannel or a tweed. but the pattern doesnt make something casual. details and fabric does.


    But also, lets keep in mind what FU suits are. Pretty much saying i dont give a fuck what anyone else thinks about it. its not gonna be "proper" CBD. not supposed to be.

    Patterns are fabric details and this one definitively makes the jacket more casual.
    Can't see the logic? Would you don a suit made from this fabric to a work meeting (exclude the rhetoric nonsense)?

    A pale pink shirt should be at home with that jacket...
