El Argentino, thanks for the recommendations. I like the Imperial shearers because they don't have the giant back pockets that the N&F have, but yeah, they are a little expensive. I guess I like more vintage-inspired details but in a slimmer fit. The LVC 1947 501s look pretty cool, too. Does anyone have any experience with those?
I want to buy my first pair of jeans ever. This is what I want: -raw selvage SF-approved fancy denim -pretty slim fit, tapered or pretty slim straight leg -high rise; like, I want them to sit, if not AT my natural waist, certainly well above my hips. -sub-$200 price range. These are my first pair ever, so the less expensive the better (up to a point). Just as long as I can get the sick fadez. A lot of the pairs I've been seeing where I like the fabric and the fit through...
For the corsage thing - yeah, I'd have cut the stem immediately below the flower. Even better, I'd have done it with a carnation so that the petals hid the point where the stem "entered" the imaginary "buttonhole". But like I said, the flowers were an aspect of the event over which I had no control. I should address the "daylight in the background" criticism: (at first I thought it was a critique of the photographic technique, heh) the ceremony started at 5:30 at the end...
Yeah, I wasn't too excited about the corsage thing, either. This coat didn't have a buttonhole, however, and I didn't work closely with the florist to design a boutonnière/corsage that looked as though there was. On your wedding day, there are so many people running around doing things and pinning things on you that there's really no way to control everything. Luckily only I and other people like me on styleforum can see anything wrong. As for the moustache, I've had it...
I rock a stache like that every day. It would seem silly to shave it off just to get married.
You guys are always saying not to do white tie unless you can do it right. I'll go out on a limb and say that I'm pretty confident. Vintage sterling and MOP stud, vest button and cufflink set, shirt and collar from Darcy Clothing , vintage waistcoat, vintage coat and trousers. I took everything but the shirt to Felice Custom Tailoring for fitting. He is excellent. I regret not having taken the shirt to be tailored as well, as I discovered too late that the sleeves were...
Giles from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. What?
Well, I certainly can't expect the groomsmen to wear white tie. I'm surprised that Orgetorix's friends managed to talk anyone into it. This is discouraging. I had this picture in my head of everyone looking great. If these guys are going to be standing up there wearing their ill-fitting tan jackets and chinos with a novelty tie, I'd rather just not even have them there.
Oh, I don't expect the groomsmen to do white tie, I just want them to wear tuxedos that match, and don't look like they're at senior prom.
Vox, I understand what you're saying. I considered morning dress, but the wedding will be at 5:30 or so, with the reception going into the evening. My expectations for sartorial miracles at this event are not so high to allow for purchasing two sets of anachronistic formalwear for it. Black tie wouldn't be anathaema, I guess, but the wedding is going to be in a 19th century space, and I have been informed that the wedding dress is "victorian inspired", so the 20th century...
