Hmmm didn't see that suit. I definitely wouldn't have gone for something THAT inside out. But yeah, when you own 19 suits of various different types I think you need at least one weird one. I actually have two weird ones, the other is a 4 button Versace with a weird stripe of contrasting material running across the jacket. I wear suits EVERY day so it's one of those things I have a lot of. I actually laughed when that Kilgores thing got posted and I thought- yeah I probably won't need anymore suits when I get 24 of them.That's not quite the one I called a monstrosity. The one I was referring to was almost completely inside out. Then again, maybe my 19th suit will be completely whacked out, too...Peace, JG
I was actually so excited to finally get it that I didn't take off the sweater which I was wearing for work. I really wouldn't wear a sweater with that normally. I just wanted to try it on. The other one I decided to try the thin tie look with it ( as was suggested before). Unfortunately I don't have any cream shirts, just white ones but yeah I agree a cream one would look better. I haven't seen a cream shirt with blue stripes around here- if you see one online (at bluefly or something) lemme know.Skip the t-shirt/sweater. Â It's not a look a lot of guys can pull off, and it's rather too easy to look rather asymmetrical at the neck. personally think that a cream shirt with either a knit tie or no tie would also look better than the combinations you have in the pictures. Â The navy/midnight blue is a rather cold color, albeit impressive, and could use some warmth,as could your pale skin tone. Â Cream shirt with blue stripe, perhaps. Â I agree with the skinny tie though. Â A thicker tie would definitely not work. Â
Lastly, you would benefit greatly from improving your posture. Â It looks like you're 5'9 or 5'10 in the pictures, not particularly athletic, and with fairly weak shoulders. Â Straightening your back will add a couple of inches, and make you look more imposing.
I don't actually wear suits that much. I do like to wear jackets, and own a bunch of sportcoats, but not too many suits. Indeed, until last summer, I only had one. (It was a nice one, though, a midnite-blue Zegna Napoli in 15milmil15.) Since then, I've bought a few and had two made for me. Still, the closest I get to a "wild" suit is a lavender-pinstriped navy high-two button Brioni.I wear suits EVERY day so it's one of those things I have a lot of.

They have one like that, too, as well as an inside-out overcoat. I'm guessing more of these will end up in outlets than fly off the racks at full, or even sale, prices.When I read inside out suits I imagined all the lining on the outside.
Yeah, those are the ones I really disliked. I think pstoller's quite right about where they're going to end up.You know what that's actually not too bad. When I read inside out suits I imagined all the lining on the outside.
I'd like to read a couple of 'em next time you need a thesis break. (I was there last summer, so I know the need will come on soonGreat colors though. Â I can think of about 10 good shirt and tie combinations off the top of my head, and a few more "casual" knitwear options, that would look killer.
