    Saw this .

    Its the guy in the suit.

    Not too close up, but im sure you can make out what he is wearing.

    It seems to be a navy blue dot tie with a purple shirt and the white collar. With a blue jacket.

    Its a nice look, esp. how the blue goes with the purple. Id love to get this look but i cant find any shirts like that.

    Call their headquarters instead. You can call and order things (that's how they used to do it before the Internets), so I don't see why you couldn't call and get this info.

    Sure, but maybe you can just say that you went to their website and it's the picture on the Purple Label part of their site.

    They used to sell that shirt. They probably still do. It's not the Keaton shirt because it has a forward point collar.

    I wonder how much all of this will run me?

    Purple Label ties are $175. Their shirts are usually $300. Suits...wow. $2,000?

    I'm pretty sure that shirt, and maybe the whole outfit, is from the Fall 07 PL collection.

    I like that tie. Note that the other one you linked to is different--the dots are scaled differently and closer together.

    The shirt is an end on end with a lavender stripe, french cuff. He also has on a black pin stripped suit with fedora and matching top coat. it also looks like he's wearing a pocket square with the top coat, which apparently is a new style i'm not used to.

    The suit looks blue to me. If that's from fall 07 would I still be able to get it?

    The shirt is not end on end and the suit is not black. Call RL, as previously suggested.

    And if all else fails, go see your shirtmaker, picture in hand. As for the tie, you could try Sam Hober.
