I have become accustmed to dressing in a Formal manner, most of the time. Morningsuit by day, and or tradional Tuxedo, or White tie buy night. Stiff collars and boild front shirts.

Feels great to be the best dressed!

I have a few tattersall shirts in my wardrobe. have to look at herringbone patterns next.

Comment by Joe Dreyfuss on March 14, 2012 at 9:04pm

I'm close to your size and I find pinstripes and tattersall accentuate height over width while still remaining formal. You can also go with grounded patterns, like herringbone.

My office environment is little different. Here its mandated to wear a tie on Mondays & Tuesdays whereas the other days its business casuals. However, only few people wear a a suit here due to the weather in India! :)I am already wearing whites & blues to work. Majority begin solid, pin stripes & few checks in light blue. I am also wearing checks- the smallest squares since I belong to the tall category. I am 6'2 & 220 pounds so I guess checks are okay to accentuate the build. Any other suggestions for tall man like me?

It rather depends on what you want and whether you're wearing a tie or not. If you're looking for formal, wear a jacket.

No to answer your question: If you're wearing just a shirt in a formal environment, never do a pattern. Just go for a solid white or blue shirt. If that's to formal you can do striped, but never checked. In a less formal environment stripes are good, checks are ok. Plaid is far out. (for me the difference between plaid and checked is the size of the squares).  

When wearing just a shirt, you don't have a jacket to cover up any excess material in the back, so make sure it is a fitted (more or less slim fit) shirt. When not wearing a tie, make sure you by one collar size down from what you would be wearing usually, for this makes for a much better 'open' fit.

Good luck!

What shirt colors do you men prefer to work when not wearing a suit? And what patterns are the formal ones? Is it pin stripes or the small plaids?

Please advice, as I am planning to redo my wardrobe soon.

Egad!  Not cheery clowns!  I believe I would have kept my coat on all the time.  Well, at least they weren't badgers or mimes.

Ah, Sir Mausheim, my liege! I quite agree with your point of view: Nothing wrong with he slippery side of the satin, and it makes for a nice unsymmetrical view.

I once owned a waistcoat where the print on the satin back was covered in cheery clowns. I used it to much, and the waistcoat perished. Alas.

I do like the site. I also got a canvas work vest for a steampunk costume last Halloween from them. It was the most expensive part of the costume, but it's also something that's much harder to find every day, especially in a rural area like I'm in right now.

Comment by Alexsander Mausheim on March 9, 2012 at 12:01pm

There is really nothing wrong with a satin back on one's waistcoat- the "slippery" hand of the satin prevents one's jacket from bunching up against the fabric.

Rituals of a supportive nature.

When one hears of the occult, mythologies, and "pagan" religion, coming from the Christianized western world, it's not a good thing that comes to mind. It is, however, that most occult persons align themselves with "White magic", and even Satanism has a Ritual of Compassion, attached below... But I've done many rituals of compassion, and in the end even if you're not a MAGIC MISSILE person, it's still very comforting to one that someone took time out of their lives, did a ritual - a set…See More

Prayers and Ideas for struggling men.

I know this isn't your typical theological question, but I feel it can be helpful. I personally need some prayer. I am struggling with guidance. I seem go be having some relationship trouble. I firmly believe God put this woman in my life to be wife one day (when funds and scheduling allow), but I keep picking fights about stupid things. I would like some prayer for guidance and how I should act. Thanks guys. I hope this thread ends up being a way for all of us guys to ask for some prayers.
