    Shoes need to go. Tie seems jarring with sportcoat. But I like the use of contrast.

    Would a dark brown work better?

    Thank you for the input. But, I understood if doing all pattern it's best to pick up similar the colors in every piece, No?

    NICE TB! I think if you went with a different colored solid tie, maybe something to compliment the blue, the white shirt wouldn't have been so noticeable. I like though, take that for what its worth...lol

    I think white shirts with sport coats are limited to a few combinations. IMO they look fine with a navy blazer and grey pants. This is such a ubiquitous combination though that fit and accessories must be perfect. Shoes should be maybe a little rakish, a sleek suede loafer or a double monk to compensate for the blandness of the overall look. Tie should be the best possible quality, understated and well-knotted, navy with small patterns perhaps.

    I also wear white shirts with a light grey cashmere sport coat and a grey shepherds check. Grey jackets are sometimes tough to pull off but light blue shirts work too.

    In summer I wear white linen shirts with a bone flax basket weave SC.

    Mostly, though, I wear pale blues or subtle blue and white striped and checked shirts with odd jackets.

    I would ditch the lapel knot and the pocket square - there is enough going on with the suit and tie - and wear dark socks and much darker brown shoes.

    You don't want people distracted by looking all over the place at different things you are wearing. Rather you need to be able to pull off an overall look which is harmonious and looks very good without others being able to articulate exactly why. You just "look good" and that's it.

    I like to use loud elements sometimes. Like yellow pants, for instance. We're not always dressing to look good in a business environment. Sometimes it's purely for fun and amusement of yourself and others. Just do it right. That said, I'd also ditch the lapel knot and the socks. The rest is good.

    Sorry man, but that is just awful. You look like a female cast member from an 80s movie.

    I like this a lot. The shoes look a bit too weathered, though.

    6 on 2 DB says 80s. So short that you could see the top of his junk and massive pads says woman from the 80s. He is a big boy, so I am sure he won't be offended.
