    Yacko hit the nail on the head. This was my first Club Room slim fit shirt experience. And because I purchased this 50$ regular price shirt for 17$ im pretty happy with it. Im not your slimmest guy, but I also know how to carry my own weight. Meaning, slim fit shirts is what are needed for myself, but I cannot do the body hugging darted shirts. Im happy with the shirt for the price, I also wear a 16 1/2 34/35. I did notice the fabric to be more on the course side, but that was not a deal breaker for me. It will now go into my work rotation and we shall see how long it will hold up.

    MaxMan, I have a couple of the Club Room Slim Fit shirts. I'm 6'1", 205 lbs, and usually wear a 42/42L jacket, 35-36" slacks, and 16 1/2 x 35 shirt.


    The shirts fit me better than standard cut shirts but since they are not darted, they're not a perfect fit for me. Also the fabric leaves something to be desired (it's a bit thin and coarse), but if you get them on sale + coupon for <$25 I think they are worth it.

    Yacko, that tie looks awesome. I'm going to be my brother's sponsor for his confirmation (catholic sacrament) in November. I want to base my whole outfit off that tie. Brown suit, white shirt, that tie, and a baby blue pocket square to match that stripe on the tie.

    I think i may just take the jacket with me to my local Macy's

    Ill just look for a few different options. Pastel Color shirts, and then once I find a shirt that will work on its own, I can then try and find a tie that will accent it nicely yet still keeping it casual. And if time persists, find a PS to wear with the shirt alone if that is the route I decide on.


    Thanks for the help fellas. Much appreciated!

    @ Tat, sounds funny, but take the jacket with you. Whatever you try make sure it meshes with the jacket on. When your in the mirror and look at the outfit, look at it quickly to see if anything looks off about color mainly the shirt cuz your not changing the jacket. if at a glance it looks nice take a long look at it and see if you feel confident in the color. Gray is neutral so you can play with the shirt and PS. I say blue or lavender becasue of the belt and loafers, but i think alot of pastel colors would work well

    I think it's tough for us to suggest colors for a tie since you need to use what you have, or run around and find something local that matches. How about posting pics of ties that you think may work, tucked into the suit and shirt?


    The tie I would wear, but I'm bias since I just bought it:

    EDIT, re-read the part about being informal. Can't disagree with Max or Ben. I just came back from an outdoor, early evening wedding in TX. I arrived in a suit and tie and was way overdressed. Most men didn't even have jackets much less ties. Agree that you should ditch the tie and throw in a PS. Personally I would always wear a jacket of some kind to a wedding unless it's something crazy unconventional.

    ya its the express TX8 shirt with front pockets. They wouldn't be showing actually because of my jacket. I'll have to re-think the shirt at my local mall after work today. thanks for the input.

    I want to give a run back to Bens initial response. i saw the outfit and first thing that came to mind especially thinking about the weather, is to go sans tie. The fact your gonig to an outdoor wedding means casual by design. I am not a real fan of that shirt either, it doesnt look like a regualr button down, is it a rancher shirt? From the looks of that pocket and the design near the yoke, it would throw your whole outfit off, a southern gent with a texas twang! LOL. I like the loafers and belt, they are both casual, so keep your entire outfit casual. No tie unbutton two (pushing it but youl be comfortable and chicks will check you out. Color wise i would recommend a pale blue of pale lavender and maybe a green or red PS.


    I apologize for ripping that apart, but it seems like you want to be formal but casual, but i would just go casual, weather and venue allow you to do so.

    i agree - a grey tie might not work well with that shade of blue. how about a solid light pink shirt? that could work with either the brown or the grey tie. or if you want to keep the shirt you've already chosen, how would you feel about pairing it with a navy knit tie?

    Well I do have a couple cotton ties, I tried it with a brown tie, which is the same shade brown as shoes and belt. Also tried it with a cotton grey tie. Now granted I only tried it with this baby blue shirt. They didnt seem to look right.


    Any suggestions on shirt color & solid tie color to use with the rest of the outfit? I'd like to keep the suit, belt, and shoes

    I'll throw you another option. depending on how casual it is, skip the tie all together, and throw in a different color pastel pocket square. pink, lavender, mint green, yellow, whatever.


    I agree though, I might go with a different tie. otherwise I dig the suit and the shoes, I think not going with white bucks was a good choice.
