    It could probably work with a black gingham, depending on what suit/coat you're looking to wear with it. Dark grey suit or coat/light grey tie/B&W ging could start being pretty intensely monochromatic, but also could be pretty cool too. One would have to check it out together to really tell.

    Thanks guys. I initially bought it thinking it would work with the black Calibrate gingham, but from what I'm reading I was wrong.

    Very light blue or lavender would work as well. As long as the shirt works, it would go with a variety of blazer colors and patterns.

    I'd go white shirt, darker gray suit (doesn't need to be charcoal, but just darker than the tie) with that tie. Depending on what you have available, I think it'd look great swapping in a pink shirt (lighter pink, not too dark) in lieu of the white as well, giving the tie a bit more contrast.

    Light-mid Grey cotton tie? What color shirts? I heard the the tie should usually be darker than the shirt

    I almost made a new thread, but then I figured I'd just resurrect this one. You're welcome!


    I recently bought the LEC Heritage Chambray Workshirt in grey (http://www.landsend.com/pp/canvas-th...236482_-1.html). It looks great, and it fits great. But besides dark jeans, what can I wear this with. Any ideas?

    See, what I'm taking from that is... don't buy a leather jacket. Fair enough! Honestly, I very, very rarely go more casual than a polo. Maybe in another life...

    @Big_Scooter Great minds think alike!


    @pitseleh I see leather jackets as a very casual item. To me, it looks at home with a t-shirt and jeans. I could probably wear a dress shirt with it, but I would stay clear of ties. You're wearing a leather jacket, you're too cool for ties.

    Okay, I've got a good one. Leather jackets - like, a medium brown one. I saw one at Gap a few weeks back, and I've decided that I think I might want one, but have no idea how to fit one in with my normal wardrobe. I tend to wear, at the most casual, oxfords and sometimes polos, and generally, stick to dress shirts/ties under sweaters or sport coats. How does one take the business casual look and fit a badass looking leather jacket into it without looking awkward?

    I thought it was a good idea, too. Didn't take off though.

    I'd go with navy and khaki still, just have to watch more what colors you sport up top to make sure it goes / isn't too busy.

    @trash Got it. I like burgundy and navy together.

    @hornsup84 and @BJ, they're burgundy suede, they're a bit more vibrant than the picture let's on. Not too loud but definitely not a color you see everyday. I have the brown nubuck version as well but that's fairly versatile, I impulse bought the burgundy ones but have yet to wear them. I'll bust them out this weekend if it doesn't rain.
