black shoes would make it fine IMO. but probably not to Manton's taste.
Seriously, are you colorblind?
I like o/o's look. It's right in line with his go-to-hell, bigshot dandy style that he's seemingly cultivated over many years. I think it's a signature look, a bit eccentric but more interesting and well considered than most. Probably not right for this particular thread, though.
I don't even think it's that eccentric if he switched out the shoes for black.
That stripe is just very bold. I agree that black shoes would work better with these colors, but it would still be a bold, attention-seeking outfit, and whether that's in good taste is debatable.
No. I'm a bigshot dandy, but probably not right for this thread.
Hmmm, maybe it's a regional thing because where I live stripes like that are pretty common, especially if you're a finance/banker type.
Something about the 3 roll 2 doesn't make sense to me with that fabric but it's minor.
I think the tie looks good there which is a feat in itself.
3/2 always makes sense.
I can't even tell that it's a 3r2 and not a 2B from the pics.
Mike, not really digging these. The first is great, except the pocket square appears totally random. The second is okay, but you know how I feel about triple solids--particularly solid squares paired with solid shirts.
That dark green Drakes square is very hard to photograph - I know from experience... It really is not that strange birdpoo green you see here. Knowing what it really looks like, I think it would work well with the rest
I love both of those.
