    BJ - I think a plain polo might look better. That think stripe throws everything off.

    Pants, shirt, and shoes are all BR. I'm sure someone will say I should have gone sockless or no-show socks but I had to head on-site today so didn't want to look I was just rolling in from the beach. The pants are actually a light brown/khaki color with white thread weaved in there. The color doesn't show up well in photographs.

      On the positive, everything fits nails! Per usual.
      Agree. I think a blazer and slacks, though, would work, and then, I'd also un-tuck the shirt as long as the tail is not long.

      There's just too great a formality difference between a suit and a polo.

          I think a pair of some sort of blue socks would tie the outfit together nicely. The black just doesn't seem to mesh with the colour scheme that is going on.

            I tend to agree with sockless/no show.

              There's pink at the toes and the very top but I guess no one other than me can see it so not the best choice.

                  @focuspants--How does the sizing on that suit run? TTS? I may have to try to track one down. The cost is low enough to see if I can pull it off, as long as the fit is good.

                    It is quite slim cut. I am a 40R Ludlow and BarIII slim fit, and I would say this one fits a little bit slimmer. Was definitely happy with it for the money. I usually wear bright colours and such, so the pattern didnt bother me too much, but I could see someone who dresses more conservatively maybe not liking it.

                      Seems like you can get it for ~ $100 right now. Not bad. Might have to pick one up.

                          I'm actually intrigued by that glenplaid stafford suit, especially since grey glenplaid is one of the holes in my wardrobe.

                          But I just despise center vents.

                            I tried as hard as I could to squeeze into that Stafford suit. The pants were just a terrible fit for me. I really liked it, though. I'm glad someone was able to snag one. It looks good.
