Hit up a lot of vintage clothing stores. Don't buy anything with moth holes or any garments that have trapped severe body odor, cologne, or smoke. Don't buy anything polyester. Stop reading GQ immediately.
With this much style - he should be down with the Stylistics (to quote the late, great BIG). No, seriously, I love threads like these. He's a 21 year old who's lecturing to CEOs (WTF), but he can't pick out his own shoes and tie. He thinks that talking about fit is"devolving" the conversation. Here are some ties that might be more appropriate for his presentation: http://www.unitedmask.com/clown_novelties/images/clown_ties.jpg
Oscar Wilde would be proud of your write-up, Synth. While SF has become suddenly Eidos-obsessed, this review seems to have captured the essence of the company. 'Nuff said...
Good luck with your presentation -But I think it's about time that new (and old) SF members stop wasting their time with these kinds of threads.I - for one - will stop taking the bait.The answer should be, to questions like this one: "Search the archives."There are numerous threads on SF that address the black vs. brown issue. There are numerous threads on AAAC that do the same.Case closed - I hope.
The practical point is - if the suit doesn't fit - he can get himself to a tailor, no?

The suit - and shoes - are both completely acceptable. I would not wear black shoes. Much more importantly - however - is whether the suit fits you well. Could you post a "fit pic?" If the jacket's collar rides up in the back; if the shoulders are bunched up or you're squeezed into them and divots form; and if the rise in your pants is wrong - and, in general - the silhouette of the leg, and the waist are poorly fitted to your body - then these are the kinds of things...
"Because I don't like walking around with people thinking I'm doing uncool shi*, because there's nothing I'm doing that's uncool. It's all innovative. You just might not understand it yet. But it's cool. Family is super cool. Going home to one girl every night is super cool. Just going home and getting on the floor and playing with your child is super cool. Not wearing a red leather jacket, and just looking like a dad and shi*, is like super cool. Having someone that I can...
For those of you who don't know what brand adjacency means... I had to look it up: http://up.mihanhamkar.com/uploads/Brand-adjacency.pdf
YRR92 -A few thoughts - first, with a DB blazer, unless it's buttoned up, there's not much of a silhouette to speak of. Second - if you're going to a formal, late night event (such as a formal dinner), you're more sitting down (eating, drinking, smoking) than you are standing and moving...and when you do, the jacket comes off. There's a photo of Daniel Craig in a diamond patterned evening jacket - walking into a red carpet event - and he looks like an over-stuffed sausage...
