    I like this very mucho. But those lapels seem to be asking for a wider tie...

    I still like it and think it would work well with a darker navy suit, and navy grenadine (or even a light-to-mid blue with well spaced dots), in a London CBD kind of way. But I'm biased, I do that look a lot (checked shirt, plain everything else), and a lot more than is seen around here.

    You can also wear it business casual, open neck with a sport coat.

    MrChris - that's yesterday's fit with the chinos, right? Because of the chinos, you could have gone without square IMO

    that is a fine tie fabric but a bad square. See me square thread, which has died out, for a lengthy explanation but something with a much lighter ground and a larger pattern, or else white linen.

    Correct, the bottom half with the galosches was left out since this is the good taste thread :D


    Okay,, I'll check it out.
    Yes I was thinking white linen too, but since I wore chinos I thought that would have been inappropriate.

    Lufty, FWIW, here are some examples of how I have been wearing plaid check shirts.

    Now, I read that there's a pink overcheck? It makes it tougher but not impossible. I'd suggest a dark burgundy tie and either grey or navy suit.

    G, I think of your graph line and tattersall shirts in a completely different context than lufy's PoW. I think they are far more conservative than a pink overlay PoW. Also, as you've demonstrated above, they are far more versatile. Just my thinking.

    Dark burgundy tie and navy suit is what I wore last time with this shirt, and I still hated it. I think it's time for us to part.

    yeah, its good that gdl posted those shots because you can see how the tattersalls work in a context that the PoW does not.

    Ed, your reactions are almost always priceless. i wonder how you'll react to far worse atrocities in life.

    I enjoy dishing snark and over the top reactions about, what are at the end of the day, meaningless things :satisfied: Obviously the world won't come to an end because Lufty is wearing that shirt but there will be puppies killed by an omnipresent being, as long as Lufty can live with that ;)

    I like it when it's subtle:

    Or in a coarser weave for (more) casual; no pink :).
