    I'd be grateful to find myself at the bottom of the pile :) . I think I already have been, and I have taken away several thing from the feedback. Yet, would what you state above exclude the presenting of several options as I did in my first post in this thread or even in succession?

    Gaz - very well done. If one is going to wear a multi colored pocket square in an ensemble, that is the way to do it in my opinion.

    Well, i took some feed back i recieved plus the comments made and decided to emphasise the monochomaticness of my colour choices.

    Thanks :)

    My comment wasn't aimed at you, but at the suggestion of "curating" the thread in a more active manner.

    Very nice, gaz. I think checks or plaids + lines such as those on a shirt make a nice combination. I'd use a different tie though.

    I defer to the right honorable whnay.

    In that case, can this shirt ever be in good taste?

    Red butcher stripe, contrast club collar. I pulled out all the stops.

    Luft, that is kind of barbershop-quartet-y. Too costume old fashioned. Shiny black tie is a definite no-no. I like black ties a lot but they need to have a weave and a dry finish to be tasteful. Knits or grenadines, please.

    It's got a decent texture IRL, but it isn't as dry as you'd like for sure. Perhaps a grenadine is in order.
