The way you always contrive to,stick your elbows out does you no favours in presenting your pften very nice suits. Betel shows here that the dreaded robopose can be photographed in such a way to show off his excellent outfit optimally, and he actually looks more natural in this pic than you usually do in yours. All IMO as usual, take it or leave it.
Not so much 'hate' for centre vents from me Coxie, just surprise to see one on a DB, although judging by the other responses maybe they aren't as rare as I'd thought. I'll keep my eyes peeled for further examples in the real world.@ Anden I really like your 'low contrast' pic, (and the navy on navy from the other day too) - you have a good habit of putting together well fitting items that aren't screaming for attention but make for a very cohesive fit.
[[SPOILER]] Good looking DB there Mossie.I saw the weirdest thing the other day. In the airport there was a Delta pilot wearing a black DB blazer with gold buttons and rank braiding on the sleeves ... with a single centre vent. I didn't think such a thing existed, pretty sure I've only ever seen DBs as either ventless or double vented. He was wearing it unbuttoned so couldn't evaluate fit but I can't imagine that this could look good on anyone.
I would hazard a guess that SF is pretty much unanimous in its condemnation of bicycle toed shoes. Some of the SF 'rules' are baloney, but this is on with which I heartily agree. Like Hugh above there says, I too have never seen one shoe of this style that I liked, and I struggle to imagine why they were invented and who would buy them as they really aren't flattering at all. Sorry!
I like that wide-spaced pinstripe suit Cleav. You've inspired me to give it a go with my navy pinstripe and black Chelseas, unfortunately my suit has the stripes spaced much more narrowly which looks a bit more routine than yours.
Exactly! I hate this shit. Look at me pretending I don't care. Studied nonchalance = oxymoron!
Ah but that doesn't seem very Oxford Don-ish!
Why? Just because one CAN, doesn't mean one SHOULD.
@ IMG you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. What you are proposing sounds like some noobs who come on this board and buy a poorly fitting jacket from a thrift shop or eBay thinking they've got a huge bargain but even after money spent on alterations it's still not right, but they hang on to it cos it was such a bargain. That trilby is way below the standard you have set yourself for your other lids (and I'm not gonna get into the other soggy thing you bought...
I love the colour and overcheck pattern on your jacket Don. I wonder if there are others who, like me, scrolled down and were a little disappointed that it wasn't a full suit?
