I purchased this shirt and i am trying to figure out what tie(s) to pair with besides a solid red.
Ive also have read a lot of bad reviews Hugo Boss and the quality, does anyone know if the ones made in Turkey and Italy differ in quality with the ones manufactured in Asian countries? This one is made in Italy which is the only reason why i payed $100(50%) off , besides the fact my girlfriend really liked it.

I am barely building up my closet with "nice" dress shirts , i really like Eton and Hugo Boss shirts, but because of the price I Cant buy them often , so i decided to purchased some Ledbury on sale, and even though i liked the over all fit the sleeves seem a lil too wide for my taste, mind you i work our n have big arms so i like shirts to fit a little close, s i would like to know if anyone could recommend any other brands i should try, thank you.



shirt is light blue with hred n blue dots

Why buy something if you do not have anything to wear with it - seems unbelievably daft.

That would be a nice shirt to wear without a tie and with jeans or solid colored trousers going out for a casual evening or for a business casual setting.

It could also look good under a blue jacket without a tie.

It is hard to pair all but the most traditional patterned shirts with ties and make it look good in my opinion.Unusual patterned shirts are a bit fashion forward and really need to be paired with a whole look to pull off properly.

If you are looking to build a wardrobe of shirts to wear with ties, stick with the basics for starters- a couple of solid medium to light blue, a couple of white, a few blue and white stripes, a solid pink and then expand from there.
