I've been browsing the Steven Alan website (stevenalan.com) and I'm interested in picking up a dress shirt or two, and possibly even the velvet blazer he offers. I could use some feedback on a couple decisions: *By the way LA guy, the reason I asked for your help specifically is that we appear to have very similar tastes in clothing. But due to my locale, I will be unable to see or try on any of these in person. 1. Regarding the dress shirts...I am curious as to what patterns appear most flattering and/or versatile. They certainly aren't cheap so I can't really afford to pick up a dozen varieties. If it influences your opinion, note that I have pretty fair skin. I'm not extremely pale, but not very tan either. I have light blue eyes. 2. I've been wanting a velvet blazer for quite some time, and am considering dropping the cash here ($400). This isn't exactly a bargain (at least for me), and would like to both decide if this particular brand is worth investing in jacket-wise, and also which color I should stick with. I think brown might be best, as it would most likely compliment denim (which is what I'll generally be wearing it with) better than the blue. I appreciate any and all comments or suggestions.
