    Overall, this combination looks good to me, but the way the tie looks in the top pic, it would look better if tightened a little. Maybe 9/10. :)

    Jacket/shirt/tie combination looks good. Shirt could use tucking in/smoothing out and tie needs straightening; not really a fan of the pocket square with this outfit. Just my .02

    I think this would look a lot better if the tie and stripe colours were switched, so that the stripes were lighter than the tie. I think there's too much competing contrast there for me to be fully on board.

    I like the tie and shirt together, Steekjes. Ton sur ton. Also nice against the blue jacket. Now, burn your socks and buy the twenty pairs of navy ribbed socks you forgot last time. :)

    lol, ill have a look out sometime.


    thanks unbel, i am also a fran of the contrast ribbing, tho i dont think that was what N has in mind.

    im thinking of a soft, mid-weight wool or even cashmere, all navy, ribbed sock is what he meant.

    I'd call those socks more lightweight than midweight, but the others I linked are all navy.

    Howard Yount has great socks in tasteful patterns. Not sure if they have the exact ribbing you are looking for but it is a good way to build a collection. Dark, rich greens and maroons are great socks to have in the rotation. Look great with flannel for instance.
