Re: The DB Chalkstripe...

Spread collar shirt in white or pink and a paisley tie. I'm digging the thought of the middle and last acorn cloths though.

Shoes simple: Black caps or Chelsea boots....

Re: The DB Chalkstripe...

Damn you Formby, I'm gonna have to get to the tailors right now and see what's in the swatches. You've given me that horrible butterflies feeling of excitement. The missus is going to do her nut when the suit bag walks though the door.

I like the tie, the shirt not so much.

Re: The DB Chalkstripe...

The combos you describe remind me of Harvie & Hudson's product range ca. 1999.

Re: The DB Chalkstripe...

And: Chalkstripe +  gingham shirt + paisley or polka tie...Yes, I know I SHOULD like it, and on Askhomo they probably adore this because Rötzel bla bla bla.

To me that combo is the sartorial equivalent of Autotune vocals.

Re: The DB Chalkstripe...

And - no, you dont see Chalkstripe combo in London often, unless you mean "In St James" and "Worn by men +50". Everywhere else and in the age bracket below, flatfront is all the rage.

Always nice but Ive moved on to...Oh wait, I am really just highjacking your post!

Huntsman was showing printed liberty of london fabric shirts with suits. I couldnt find an example with a chalkstripe but it could be a swinging London kind of thing. http://houseoffraser.scene7.com/is/imag … %20710,250


I mentioned the film Kingsman. It's interesting that Michael Caine wears DB suits in two Moonbeam fabric checks, 36651 and 36688.

That's quite fun.

Huntsman has been doing a lot of showcase stuff lately on the various social media. I guess maybe one upside of the takeover?

Re: The DB Chalkstripe...

I once met a 50something executive (FNB moment!) who pulled off: a DB chalk with dark brown double monks. And a pink shirt. And a rose gold Cartier Pasha.

It really suited HIM, but not me. I tried a DB on at N&L and (censored).
