I agree with you on the party vibe. If it were a blue or grey pinstripe it would look totally corporate and likely even harder to wear for that reason, but the cream pinstripe is actually really interesting I think. Casual but kinda slick and sharp at the same time. A suit that would be immediately recognized by those in the know as bespoke. But yeah I struggle to think what other shirts you could make work. Maybe white with a black or navy grenadine tie?
Navy white Breton shirt. A navy houndstooth sweater I have. Cream or navy crew/turtle/polo neck. It kinda works with charcoal but not my preference. Denim shirts for a more rugged cowboy look. I would not wear it with a tie unless it’s a corporate event on a tropical island or a yacht club of some sort. Then perhaps with a black/ navy grenadine/knit or shantung tie

Actually. I think a powder blue linen shirt with a tie would work. I’d much rather a demin sawtooth shirt though

Looks nice. Is it SBPL? What kind of pockets do you have on it? Flapped or jetted? Hard to tell from the pic.

I‘m looking for inspiration for my next SC and want a more „evening out“ vs. corporate look.
Sbpl 1b. Pockets are flapped but I tucked them in so it looks jetted. I think loro piana has a wool silk linen cream with navy chalk stripe which would look good as a jacket. Sbpl 1b config makes for the ultimate going out suit/jacket imo

I've seen it in person; when it comes to VBC, it is what you are looking for.

You are welcome.
