    CT gingham shirt. Doesn't look that bad, I guess. I'm not a big fan of gingham. Funny story, the gingham shirt actually has french cuffs. I had no clue.
    .
    I bought that exact same shirt during the latest CT 3/$99 sale and was also surprised to find that it had French cuffs. No clue how I let that one slip through the cracks. It's a beautiful shirt though.

    I like the gingam fabrics. I used to travel to the UK a lot about 5 years ago and and would see a lot of the bold patterned gingams there and not be able to find them for sale when I came home.

      Go to the gq website and click on style. Look through the suits on the site and it should be pretty clear.

        First post. This was actually the beginning of October, but thought I would post anyways.

          On the CharlesG pictures, I like both and I am about to be 30. I don't like the stars or whatever they are on the gingham and the tie looks a little busy with both dots and flowers but it can work. The top picture looks great to me. It does take some skill which you just acquire over the #menswear lifetime to try different things and see how they work.

          Wolves - I think the jacket and pants are too close in color so it is hard to see a break from jacket to pants. The fit of the clothes looks great though. Also some don't like the air tie look, I am fine with it but wouldn't wear it myself.

          When I started out I used to just hate certain styles but now have grown to accept certain things that while I don't like them other people do.

                        Thanks man. I was trying to figure out if the contrast issue was there as i thought. I wish the jacket was a little bit more of a yellow khaki.
