    Just wondering what the thoughts are on french blue shirts. Back in '09 I saw a thread and they felt it was still OK. The word "classic" and "timeless" was used; however, I don't believe true french blue would be considered either.

    Is it time for me get rid of my french blue shirt?

    I recently got one.

    I think it may be too much for my Nordic complexion.

    Yes. Jewel tones and box square shoes are the new "in" for 2013.

    This question is going down better than I would've thought. Where is the fashion vs style police?

    I see the color worn commonly with black. A combo I personally hate :D

    It's def hard to pull off, I'd rather go light blue

    I take the attitude "the heck with everyone else, I feel comfortable wearing this", but then, that's just me.

    I really would like to hear what the general consensus is on this because I own a lot of formal blue shirts, especially the lighter blue colors, and if this peeves people off it would ruin my confidence!!! [​IMG]

    If you sell cellular phones at the mall kiosk...its absolutely in style.
