I'd be cautious of putting too much stock in a direct comparison of Simon's clothes. Despite the comparative nature of his blog, the clothes are made not to reflect the tailor's typical house style but built to Simon's rather specific tastes. For example, he has very sloped shoulders but doesn't like shoulder padding or artificial anatomical correction. That alone can dramatically affect the overall presentation of the resulting garments, and is a taste much more in the...
The angle of the photograph showcases that outfit to its best advantage. Imagine if you were looking at that busy tie straight on and unobstructed. Looks better there, just peeking out. There are a lot of ties out there like that, victims of the demise of the three-piece.
Sorry, fellows, but I just cleaned up a couple of posts. We don't need another tiresome debate on the merits of this thread. That's a discussion that can go nowhere and does nothing but derail the thread. If you don't like this one, there are plenty of others to enjoy.
I could see that, but it's great for a sportcoat too.
You guys are missing out on the smaller scale. Renders like a solid, so it's like a tweed blazer. The dressiest tweed I have.
Why would it be chickening out? A a lot of posters go wrong when they start treating pattern matching as a competitive sport.
I am hesitant, because that would only encourage people to tell me how it doesn't look like the Goldfinger tweed at all. They would be wrong, but it's the little things that get me by.Nonetheless, it is great for a sportcoat and so I encourage you all in this endeavor.
I have an RL coat almost exactly like the Goldfinger one, except maybe a bit darker. It's fantastic.
I expect this will be true of brightly colored trou as well, a fad that seems to be on its way out.I like patterned trou that effectively resolve to solid. Fine herringbone, for example. But I almost never wear them.
To be fair, I still like shell. Sometimes it's quite beautiful. Just not for me, at least for elegant shoes.
