    Pictures of such poor quality are not in good taste.

    Please stop posting pictures with bowties - or at least shiny and/or pink bowties.

    Looks good, man. Silver tie on a white shirt is a little boring, a little wedding-y, right?

    Don't over-iGent your thinking. This outfit is in perfectly good taste for business too.

    I feel like I am late to the party, but I am perplexed by the aversion regarding contrast collar shirts. I think they can look very elegant, if they are worn in the right context. In fact, I happen to own a shirt that is quite similar to the one Beckham is wearing in the photograph. Is the following outfit ruined by that shirt?

    Happy Wednesday. Blue shirt didn't look as good with this I thought so swapped it for a white.

    no one - disregarding fit issues for a moment, this outfit is "ruined" by both the shirt collar and the tie. Same outfit with a white shirt (or a blue shirt) would undoubtedly be better, even with a striped shirt or a checked shirt... and with another tie even more so

    citan - can't get behind that chunky lilac windowpane. Is that a suit or sport coat?
