    I think this is, technically, a good combo, but it's just really boring (for me), sorry! You really need some colour in that PS; it's too washed out (with the fit) and matchy-matchy.

    Well, FWIW the tie is washed out in the pic. It is actually silver with navy dots, not white.

    People are either going to love this or hate it; if you're epileptic I apologize for the seizure:

    I have two issues with this, albeit petty ones: firstly, the tie and the PS, by coincidence, seem very close in shade, and at first glance they appear to match. Maybe the colours are less matching in real life. I cannot believe the Spoo would ever commit the sin of "matchy matchy", even if in a hurry.

    But the second is the shirt. The jacket is soft and textured, the trousers are throwaway chinos, and the shoes informal suede. But the shirt, partly with the stripe but mainly with that spread collar, seems way too formal for the outfit. It's stiff, City, business-y to me. I think maybe either something softer/longer in the collar, or even a button-down, would have worked this constructed-casual thing a bit more consistently. And a simple square check or even just an oxford weave, instead of the stripe.

    I wish I could see the perfume that's mentioned. That would probably fix it. [​IMG]
