    Navy Grenadine Tie, White/Navy Linen Square.

    I'll go out on a limb and say this even fits the original intent of the thread.

    Could really use a much taller shirt collar.

    And that color combination washed out the facial features.

    Really like the cut of the jacket.

    Don't think the pattern goes with the small stripes or summery square but the shoulder linea d drape in the chest are :fonz:

    Quote:What color combo wouldn't, then? Grey suit, light blue shirt is as "usual" as it gets.

    I agree; a more muted square would have probably worked better. Thanks guys.

    This already is a high collar, I'm cursed with swan-neck syndrome. Maybe my next shirts will be different.


    One could always go with different shades. Sometimes they make all the difference.

    Sander IMO looks fantastic as is. I feel the same way about UC's post, awesomeness and the combination works.

    I am confused. Every time I see an NSM jacket, "in person"
    and in photos, the shoulders seem different than the previous NSM
    jacket I saw. In this case the shoulders seem to slope a great deal
    with some roping at the sleeve head. Not my style. On the other
    hand, the Pagoda shoulder has received much comment.
    Que pasa?

    Different approaches to different customers/garments, probably. Take Whnay's experience with Rubinacci as an example, he got pagoda roped shoulders because his tailor saw it as a better option for him.

    Can I ask what the tie is made out of, UC?

    Sander, I have to be honest, every time I see that photo, I think the proportions would be better with a slightly fuller leg -- I know you've had more than enough comments about the drape of those trousers, but I'll mention it. They work well with the jacket (so often, when people wear really skinny trousers, they end up looking top-heavy), but the net effect makes your shoes look rather big. That may be a trick of photography, as well.

    Cashmere, cotton, & silk. It's soft & dry at the same time. A bit heavy.

    Whoa. That sounds awesome. I like cashmere ties, but I like a drier finish. I may rip off that rig just a little come flannel weather -- tan glen plaid suit (mine has peak lapels), solid blue shirt, cashmere neat, and a square that is in a similar pattern, but deeper colors.

    This made me chuckle quite a bit when i saw this!
    Beyond that, I am liking this thread more than The What I Wore Today threads, classy stuff!
