I don't think that shirt should be paired with a human body. Sorry.
This looks like something Flusser would recommend.
One of your finest entries and a truly compelling case being made for white socks.
I think this entry demonstrates that when, as you did, you do as Coco Chanel advised and drop a few elements out of your usually busy ensemble, you compromise nothing and still stay true to your unique spice. A bit of austerity (sans boutonniere) suits you...
That's kind of what I was insinuating. :^)
That shirt collar looks much much better than most of the others you have posted in this thread. Big improvement. I might have gone with a solid shirt for suiting like that but I think the stripe works.
you guys cut deep.
Is this kind of pattern for a suit in good taste? I'm still trying to figure out stripes.
Too bad this thread goes down...
looks quite nice to me. but you will to confirm with the experts.
Suit doesn't seem to have any life in it.
Thanks, I agree - this is in the second batch of shirts from this maker, and I think the changes i requested compared to the first batch represent improvements. The only other shirts I have that I like as well are the NapolisuMisura shirts (the white shirts I have, such as the next most recent pic I posted, with this same suit), but they are also significantly more expensive.
Yeah, I think that photo is washed out. It looks better in others. I picked that photo because it provided the best representation of the pattern (sacrificing a good impression of the fabric as a whole).
That looks a lot like a Hardy Riviera sportcoat I have. It is in good taste for spring, summer and early fall. I wear it with solid light blue, striped or small tattersall shirts and dark brown/blue ties.
Per some of your recs, i am trying this SC with blue, and just for pB, its an OCBD.
Working? Good taste?
Lil further back, coloring off tho
I love the SC, that particular shade of blue seems to be a touch off though, I can't quite put my finger on it....
