    Bump because I like this thread.
    Matt Deckard did write about the topic in his blog
    Matching checkered shirts could also be discussed here (I prefer stripes though)

    Wow. A few of these I like. Some of them I don't like at all! Is that an Oregon Ducks themed look on the second row far right, with the white/silver tie over the mustard yellow on green windowpane? Looks about as bad as their post-Nike uniforms do. Also - it is interesting that so few of these seem to follow the wisdom i always hear - which is that a secondary color in the tie should pick up a color in the shirt.

    Does somebody know where this pictures come from? Or which time frame? Do you agree to the suggestions?

    no, but the illustrations look post 70s. generally i agree with the advice. it's pretty much the same thinking that Alan Flusser covers in 'Dressing the Man' and is virtually gospel by now;

    don't put patterns together that are too similar in tone and scale.

    here endeth the first lesson.

    Thanks.


    Yes, that's the lesson. And if one pattern is too busy you need a plain fabric nearby to calm it down. But I still can't get used to big houndstooth. My brain hurts when I see it. Yes, I know. Cary Grant and all but still...

    I'm glad this thread got bumped as I've used it in the past. I generally wear tattersall shirts and V Neck Sweaters with my tweed jacket and find that it seems to offer the right balance. I once wore a tie that was somewhat similar in color and design to a tattersall shirt I have and was told it didn't look right. I learned from my mistake and later wore the shirt again with a regular tie and was told that it looked great. Trial and error will teach you about what looks good together and what doesn't more than anything else
    When I want information i go to someone who knows more than me and i ask them. Sometimes......I ask pretty hard.

    Today I actually saw an aquaintance of mine wearing a sportcoat....but it was a red one which he wore with a red T Shirt underneath. he was also wearing jeans and sneakers and I can't say I thought it was well put together. The diffrent reds caused a clash and I dislike the jeans with sportcoat look personally(Although I have seen people who do it well) so I didn't think much of how he was put together.

    in the late teens to early 20s there was a fad for trousers that were full at the thigh, quickly tapered and finished with an extra large turn up:



    .... discuss.

    It's like a trousered version of pegged jeans. The late 20's must have been a really layered, complex time for haberdashery. Always discovering new surprises from that timeframe - like the ongoing thread in the General section about 20's-does-70's or 70's-does-20's...or whatever
