Apologies for the image noise. I will start using a proper camera one of these days. The shirt you see here was on clearance at Paul Frederick for $20. I will buy any shirt from PF once it hits $20, provided it does not have a contrast collar (i.e. a collar that is not the same pattern and/or color as the rest of the shirt). It looked a lot less...difficult on the Internet. When it arrived, I despaired until I thought of my light-gray Hickey suit.
Like a sleek, purple-and-pink jaguar, I stalked the tie racks at my local Filene's Basement. Three visits passed before I spotted the above tie for $20. The indistinct detail within each square is a little flower made of silver thread.
I like this combination because:
- The suit gray goes with the tie silver and the shirt white.
- The tie squares are larger versions of the shirt squares but with the colors inverted.
- Really, the suit's neutral gray could pull off almost any color of shirt.
