No suit coats for me i guess.  But Ted Baker is my favorite Tie style so i guess i would get ripped on here for a lot of the stuff i wear.  I am assuming most would say shirt and tie no coat is not a good idea but it works for me for the most part.  I will consider buying some coats but i am already overdressed the way it is.   Paisley ties are my favorite....are they ok?  heh

my god you are clueless kid.

I get more compliments from a van huesen shirt and non silk tie (gift).

When I first read that I thought 'wool or linen' but then I realized you meant polyester.


I believe Whnay poasted a fit with a turquoise tie a while back. If anyone could make it look good, he could. But he couldn't.

Very friendly forum i have run into here. Groupthink?

Doesn't what you wear have many variables? Some people have a swagger (self confidence) where they can pull off anything. Why is it that a coat is necessary?

What is the average age here on the forum? Is everyone 50+ in penny loafers, pleated pants, and awesome taper showing socks?

color is good but only if it is brown? :)

one day you will look back on both your outfits and your attitude and realize you looked like a tool, swagger or no.

And yeah I'm 29.

Swagger + polyester turquoise tie < swagger + nice tie + suit

You don't need to give up your swagger in order not to dress like a young middle American cliche.

Sir -
Look deep into your user name and seek counsel and ask if it was divine providence that brought you to styleforum.

Romans 116: "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.."

Acrid Sheep's graph expresses the path to salvation in a more vernacular manner.

Good day to you [tip of the hat]

Mister, you got a lot of guts to wear that tie.

More guts than brains.

True. What's wrong with wearing it with a white shirt?
I think that was the general consensus on the OP. Things just got diverted by the arrival of our new wannabe style guru...

Thread inspired me to wear a turquoise tie today. Not the Pucci one I mentioned upthread; an old Zegna instead, but using the same core combination of a navy suit (happens to have a faint pinstripe, but still basically solid) and shirt with a small pattern. Pic here; and I blame you all for being enablers.

Good, bad, indifferent? You decide... and I might wear the Pucci later in the week...
