I'm not a tailor, but I am a photographer. Those are not great pictures.   I think our own @unbelragazzo says it best here:   http://asuitablewardrobe.blogspot.com/2014/07/quality.html   That said, I like to think if you handed me two jackets, I could tell you which one had better buttonholes and superficially better stitching. I also think some of the articles on http://tuttofattoamano.blogspot.com/ can help, especially the ones where the author cuts open old Kiton...
Trying to find general consensus on SF is like trying to walk a cat, in that Voxsartoria will make fun of you for it.   But I get the impression SF has moderated its position a little bit on jacket shoulders. I've seen fairly structured stuff that hasn't gotten dinged for being "too structured," which was something I recall seeing when I first started posting.   But if you like them, and they work for you, then I think you're set. After all, most people who dislike a...
Close enough for me, but, I mean, if you sweat this kind of thing, they do make a matching belt for walnut AE strands. If you want perfection, you could buy that.
Bitchin', thanks. I suspected they might be Williams, but (as you point out) I don't always think of storm welts on their boots. I like the rounded toe more than their squared-off ones.
PoP: May I ask who made the boots?
I think it's the OneShoe, plus JL Philip, plus bespoke brown galosh oxfords? Which ain't so bad.
This, I like a lot, but I'm not crazy about the two blue checks. They work better than I'd expect them to, but they're not quite right. This is the real problem with paisley ties like that: they're tough to pair with squares. I don't have any summer ties like that, so I've had a break, but I'm not sure what I'll be doing when I wear them in the fall: maybe I'll try squares in "neat" foulards, or maybe I'll just do solid silks (COME AT ME, BRO). Dots could work, maybe. The...
But it doesn't look good unbuttoned, either, all flying away from the shirt like that. I'll wear a BD collar unbuttoned, but it has to be doing its best impression of a "normal" collar for it to work.
Well, here's Manton's other thread on the subject: http://www.styleforum.net/t/338954/streamlined-shoe-wardrobe/0_30 I always thought the list you quoted was more like "you need to own these things" than "these items are all you need." Something aimed more at people just starting, or people who've focused too much on one area to the detriment of others -- unless you can live your whole life in a dark suit and black shoes, like P. Booth, you need a tweed jacket and a pair...
Oh, jeez. My apologies. I'll have to give up on my version of Hemingway's "Write drunk, edit sober" -- I was trying for "write hungover, edit never," but it doesn't work too well.
