    Hm. I think I'll keep that in mind wearing this and wear it with sweaters more often. I think that would make more sense given the casual-ness of the jacket with elbow patches et all.

    I might try moving the button a half inch myself when I get some free time as well.

    And yeah, thanks. I think the varying scale thing is a huge improvement for me. It's taken some stuff from gaudy to workable.

    Rudals, this is your best yet. The only thing I hate is the style of the suit. Also, it looks a bit too snug in the chest and waist. To get very picky I think your collar should be just slightly more spread with the points extending under your suit's lapels. Well done.

    Much appreciate your compliment.
    The jacket being a bit tight has to do with my weight gain. It will take me about a week to dump it off.
    I didn't realize about the collars until I had put on the shirt. It was purchased in Korea and so I kind of understand this issue. You really have good eyes pB. Thx again.

    pB, what don't you like about it? The rollino?

    Rudals it looks quite nice though I guess if you had to wear suits all the time, it would be tiring. How about subtle to larger check shirts different color checks, (variation on stripes too), with appropriately patterned ties and working with a more varied color scheme?

    I've been thinking about a chocolate brown grenadine from Hober.

    Thx. That's exactly how I am trying to make my look more interesting. I am bound by a full suit so will try different patterned shirts.
    As for Hober, I think they make the best grenadine ties. The chocolate brown grenadine is a darn good staple to have.

    I don't like the size and shape of the lapels and I don't care for the roped shoulders. Also, to a lesser extent, the prominent "pick-stitching" on the lapels.

    In generally dress shirts with such a white ground like that one aren't the best of choices. I used to not think so, but now I kind of agree with some other posters that a white shirt should be a white shirt. Any patterns should be the majority of the color, where the white itself is the stripe and the color is the base.

    +1 to all of this.

    Rudals, I'd focus on nailing the basics (solid white or blue shirt, white/blue stripes) before playing with colored and patterned shirts. A well executed classic suit, shirt, and tie is never boring.

    rtc, that's just not working. Shirt's too dark, tie's too light, jacket fits poorly. Even if we take your word for the color of the pants, they're probably too dark for this combination.

    Rudy Nudals, a subtle navy neat as available from Panta, Drakes, and many other sources will work nicely with your subtly patterned shirts and conservative suits:

    ^ Yup.

    I liked the idea of Rudals giving us a budget and other guidelines and the forum picking out some ties for him to buy.

    i recommend that he not start with navy neats. if he wears a lot of navy suits, and blue striped shirts, im not sure tripling up on blue is the best place to start. maybe some brown or burgundy or green grounded ties will be a better start.

    Nice, as always. Difficult to tell with the photo, but is the collar solid (or a different pattern) to that of the body of the shirt? And is the handkerchief solid or patterned?

    Thanks. Body and collar of the shirt are the same stripe. Handkerchief is solid.
