One down, two to go

Happy Monday to you all!  Here’s to a better week than the last one was.

Got a box today with one hard to work shirt and a Grey Glen Plaid suit as well as black check Sportscoat.

The history behind the shirt was that it was a gift from a business associate from overseas, and the subject was wondering if it could be worked into a business setting with a suit as said business associate would be visiting and the gift recipient wanted to show his appreciation.

The nature of the shirt made it hard as its a darkish blue color with a purplish tinge to it and almost to the point of looking a bit denimy. (that means like DENIM, DUH!)

Here is what I came up with, using a Navy pin stripe suit, and a universal color square (meaning there are so many different colors here you can almost use these squares for everything).

I think that this (its not really that tie, that tie isnt on the site, shame on me.  This is the pink/black version of that pink ) tie works best here. It gives enough color and contrast without being over the top.  Its not quite red, closer to a pinky black.  Its somewhat textured but the texture doesn’t compete with the shirts chevron weave.

This also works well for the same reason.  Its got reds, Blues and violets mixed in there.

Finally, this floral/paisley which doesnt look that special in the pic but is a nice match in person.  The darker colors of the tie almost blend perfectly with the shirt. (OK, OK, my wife thought it got lost against the shirt, but what who asked HER?)

Tomorrow we attack the Glen Plaid Suit. 🙂
