    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 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.

    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.

    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.
