I have been accused of relying too heavily on Navy. 'Tis true.
looks washed out. Too much blue, too close in tone.
First one doesn't work for me. I don't think white shirt and black tie can work with anything but a suit, maybe grey suit or a black/charcoal for a funeral. With a blue shirt, maybe?
Second one looks good on the detail pic, colors and patterns work well. The bigger picture is hard to gauge because of angle and blurriness.
i think i may have just the shirt. thanks! also, i really dont mind 3 solids anyways.
gdl - i love it. and i as well would wear cashmere ties in any season.
I like almost all of your fits, Ethan, but that one isn't my favorite. I don't like the stripes on that suit very much and pinstripes don't do well with low-contrast fits IMHO. I do really like the shirt though. What fabric is that?
Are these stripes? On my monitor, it looks like a herringbone pattern/weave
You could be right - on my monitor it initially looked to me like stripes, but I'm not sure now.
thanks. i like it still, but hear what you mean.
fit 1 - you are now person #2 to say blue shirt. can a blue shirt reall be worn with a black tie, and a black/gray check SC?
also, it was said, that a black knit/grenadine is a must have. what uses then, would it have?
fit 2 - thanks! detail pic is correct, first was was no bueno.
I am currently wearing such a shirt.
It is a Herringbone weave, not a pin. By Ariston.
The shirt is a chambray-ish cloth, I think by Thomas Mason.
Like I said, I wear too much blue. Someone once told this fat man that it's slimming, and I guess that's a crutch I lean on too often.
Ethan, and I apologize if you've addressed this before, I'm interested to know why you opt for clip-on braces. I feel like I've seen you in multiple photographs sporting them. Just an observation.
they had one that would be perfect from STF when i got this one. i should have gotten both.
Mine's Ledbury. Probably not in good taste, but nonetheless:
Bourbon - I find the clipped suspenders both very comfortable - the attachment at the back allows for great ease of movement - and also a little more casual. Somehow, with a standard trouser, ie not a fishtail back, they are a little more relaxed and a little less costume. They keep my pants up, and that is all they need do.
what is your opinion regarding belts?
