    dangerous territory....

    and if your complexion is toward the pinkish, double trouble.


    Which is why I didn't buy.... Red and Pink are tricky colors for me.

    yep, in the summer with some sun on my skin, it looks fine, but during the fall / winter there is no contrast.
    I'd walk around looking look like a giant pink pearl eraser.

    You know, I kind of like that. I don't know if I could pull it off, but it's certainly fun and different. If I were to get that, though, I'd wear the coat and vest with cream flannel trousers. The entire suit might be too much all at once.

    Margaret, you're mental. Narrow stripes only make me look thinner.

    Margaret, you're mental. Narrow stripes only make me look thinner.

    I'm only talking about the extremes; yes, a suit with prominent pinstripes that are especially closely spaced (1/4"?) would empasize the vertical. A suit with chalkstripes that are more broadly spaced (3/4") won't necessarily make a slender person look more slender or less slender, but just doesn't look as visually balanced as it would on a larger man. 1/2" spacing seems best. But that's just my opinion on single-breasted. Double-breasted seems to be a slightly different dynamic because of the visual line created by the prominent lapels with their strong diagonal lines (e.g, Fred Astaire).

    Of course, I could be completely talking out of my butt here. But I likes what I likes, okay?

    Shit. I lost my chance to be the first one on the Style Forum block to own one.

    This is a tough one. Even though the buttons are black, I wouldn't go with black shoes for sure. That would be way too harsh a contrast. I'm thinking light brown shoes and just a solid white shirt with a tie a little darker in colour than the suit.

    There's nothing incorrect about your observations. Stripes are a trickier subject than other patterns. For example, flap pockets can counter the impact of thin stripes. (But flap pockets on a pinstriped suit often don't mix.)

    Out of curiousity, what do you mean by this?

    I have a variety of striped suits, some narrow, some wider, some pinstripes, some chalkstripes and they're all flapped and look good (of course I guess I'm biased since I own them). I'm just not sure what you mean.

    The suit came today and isn't bad for the $68.00 it cost me. So i guess my only options are white shoes, white shirt, and a red tie. Am I right?

    No red tie. Id wear a red shirt with this before id wear a red tie. A red tie will signify a certain fumbling to match.


    Navy knit tie, even with white dots on it.

    POST PICTURES! With or without the tie.

    A pale blue shirt might be nice too.

    Actually, why DO you need a tie at all? I assume you're not wearing this to the office.
