    Derk has a fussy baby, a sick wife, and a profound lack of sleep, and you're worried whether or not he's wearing pants? What sort of philistine are you, anyway? :)

    imo, he made sure to include to most important ingredient when wearing a colorful PS. make sure everything else is toned down and solid.

    restraint. that is where its at.

    The kind that has done that twice - the second time with a rambunctious five year old. This parent game is tough and you've got to play to win from the beginning. No slack for t3h n00bz.

    Disagree; that shirt can - and should - be worn with a tie IMO, but only with an otherwise ultra-sharp, business look. It would be a very English sort of look, necessitating, say, a navy suit (perhaps even a pin- or chalkstripe), black shoes and a similar tie one he's already wearing. White linen square or something like a navy polka dot if going for silk. I do agree that it looks out of place with the tie in the more casual outfit. But I would not like it open-collar either. Smart, City-ish sort of look is the way to go with it I think!



    For example, if you were to use his shirt/tie combo in my outfit today, I think it would work pretty nicely:

    yes.I forgot the tie photo today. But was a dark brown waffle-y thing on a light blue shirt. Boots need a good brushing.

    @ Holdfast. Harvie & Hudson are, if for nothing else, known for their bold stripe shirts, and I picked the tie together with mr Harive sr. to go with that shirt. But as you say, it is supposed to be worn with a sharp british suit, and not a casual outfit as I had today.
    H&H used to be my favorite shirtmaker, and this design particularly - and I have quite a few in blue, pink, red and yellow.
    Still I understand those here who dislike the shirt; it is rather loud and can attract to much attention. That's the reason why I can only wear it on days that I can take that kind of looks...

    A rare post from me. I´ve been more into sportswear than menswear these last months as I am running a marathon on sunday. If things go as hoped I might treat myself to one of Suitsupplys FW suits...:happy:

    IS - I think that's a miss on the shirt. Tie is good with the jacket, though I'm not a huge fan of the tie.

    Re the shirt: Too many solids and blue is too saturated.

    I would have opted for a striped shirt. ie. Blue/White University stripe OCBD

    All your ties would look better if you properly tied the knot. Below this notch this is clean. From the notch to your neck it is a mess. Tighten it up; single dimple.

    not a bad idea. thanks. dont have one in OCBD, but have a stripe that is non BD that would do the trick i think.

    I rather like it, though it does fall outside of the general aesthetic here (which really seems like a sort of ameritalian these days, but I could be wrong). I had a similar thought to HF, but this was mostly from watching Kingdom, Party Animals, and other British shows, so it seemed best to keep my mouth shut.
