    Manton, I want to encourage your current uptrend in photo quality. That picture is downright acceptable.

    Combo ain't bad, either. The tie is not one I would pick out of a lineup, but it looks quite handsome here.

    I happen to think thats one of the nicest (i.e. would wear myself) combos I have seen on Manton. Well done. What shoes did you wear?

    Thanks! The DB is made by Chan in Smith's 9oz flannel. Awesome fabric.

    Blue Hill is always a fun visit! That picture was from last Fall. Nowadays little Waverly is rockin the mullet.

    I'm a huge fan of grey/pink combos but that shirt's just TOO light a shade. Clashes with your ever so slightly swarthy tone. Not really a fran of the blue/orange/pink/grey/fruity combo either.

    It's like the story of Dorian Gray.

    The square suffers in my stead.

    To the detractors, and given the thread concept, I'd venture to say that pale pink is probably the only pink that's in good taste for a shirt in the realm of tailored clothing. Pink, just like blue btw, can quickly become vulgar in brighter/darker tones. Very light blue and very light pink are my go-to colors for solid shirts.

    Very, very pale lilac or purple (solid or patterned) is another a nice, tasteful shirting ground, especially with a navy tie.

    PS is a disaster with this combo, and the shirt/tie combo is on very thin ice. Basically a cluster when you shmoosh it all together. Suit is nice, though.

    I really think Manton's tie is awful, but as I understand there might be some cultural things at play here.

    The shirt, suit and pocketsquare are very nice.
