a while ago, actually a year, I bought the following T.M. Lewin shirt:
I really like this shirt due to its unmatched fit (for any reason it fits better than any other shirt I have -.-).
Unfortunately I have no Idea how to wear it. My friends make fun of it as "the gay shirt" so an answer like "yeah, wear fancy red'ish or pinkish pants" won't be convertible :-(
I should mention that the shirt's cut suggests that it is tailored to get tucked in, not to hang losely around.
Does anybody have an Idea how I can combine the shrit so it looks good despite the screaming colors?
Thanks in Advance!
Not gonna lie, it's a pretty horrible shirt...if I had to wear it, I'd probably go with navy chinos/trousers and a grey v-neck (or vice versa) so that there was just the flash of colour at the collar and cuffs. Doesn't let you show off the fit though.
Yeah sorry dewd, bin the shirt
I'm sure you can get a nice fitting plain white shirt in Primark or something for £10
Cheers guys -.-
since I impressively proved my lack of common sense in terms of clothing, here is my next thread.
It might seem pretty long but the actual content is pretty small, so pleas try to fight trough and help me :-(
As an in-house lawyer I have to wear suits all day.
In my country this, in general, looks pretty much like this:
- Black suit,
- black shoes,
- black belt (non MA ;-) ),
- white shirt,
- (sometimes quite naff) tie.
Black pinstripe suits are common, sometimes you see grey suits, navy suits are seldom to be seen.
Due to the fact that I usually wear black suits (I got a black Aquascutum while I was in GB, LOVE IT! Rest of my blacks were rather low-priced) , I wear pretty unspecial black lether shoes and belts.
If I feel “crazy” I go with tie-matching cufflinks and this silver watch:
Before asking my actual question, please let me quickly explain my current wardrobe:
beside the aforementioned black suits, I own a blue suit by Sarar’s “Interview”-Series with quite narrow white stripes. The speciality with that one is that the blue has quite a dark tone. In low light it almost seems like a grey or black suit, in normal light you see a nice, slightly shining blue tone. The pinstripes are narrow enough you might not get aware of them from the distance. Close up you see them pretty good. Might sound weird, but it looks pretty good and top quality. IMHO usual pinstripe suits might very quickly emanate a “boastfull” look, so to say, this one doesn’t.
Unfortunately I couldn’t find a pic of that one. The blue suit I use to wear with the same black lether items as I use with the black suits.
I also got a well fitting mid grey suit by S. Oliver “Selection”:
a brown TH leather belt:
Tommy Hilfiger Stitched Edge Leather Belt in Brown for Men | Lyst
and brown Chelsea boots like:
I’m planning to extend my wardrobe with the following items:
A watch to match the brown items. I’m planning on getting this one:
And a pair of brown brogues like
1.) What do you think about the upper purchases to-be?
2.) What else could be a good buy to make the suits look better besides black belts n shoes?
3.) This is maybe the most important question for me: To evaluate the amount of money I am willing to spent on items like this I need to know if the aforementioned “brown items” can be worn with the black or navy suit.
I’ve never seen such a combination around here. But that could have many reasons. One of them obviously is that it might look weird….
What do you say?
Thank you for any advice!!
Black and brown makes a frown, with formal looks anyway. Could definately work with the navy suit though.
Lovely items though, really liking that watch. You seem to know what you're doing pretty much, so that's the only advice I can offer aha.
thanks for the mnemonic rhyme (Will defo carry that one with me for now ;-)) and the flattery *hehe*. I wish I really would understand fashion... but ever since I've been in GB I try to do my best to understand it.
Ok, so black and brown seem to be a no-go. Checked.
Brown n grey look great, as I experienced.
Any experiences with the navy and brown?
And that's alright mate, good to have you in the forum.
