HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part II - Page 2066  

post #30976 of 37077
Some serioius looks over the past pages...won´t go into reciting every pic, but guys, it would be well worth the effort. @Crusty: very nice DB, i think you should stick with those. As Dawg said, you might want to give the tie / ps combinational thing a second thought. One more thing: would you mind using multi-quotation? @TTO: Killer!! Amazing suit / shirt / tie combo. @Dawg: Nice shirt / tie combo, not so sure about the sc. @PG: Nice ones. @Rob: that suit is kicking ass, really. Only thing i worry about is the length off the trou. I think you should stay with the short breaks... Some lighter colours today...

You've really been "toning it down" lately spoozy. Still got your style though.

Yup. This is really nice. I wish you had a full body shot. I'm thinking this is the case when pinstriped trousers work quite well. I would be even more convinced if you provided a better photo.

Feel the power of SF group-think!

So, I'm going to see a play tonight. I'm thinking of wearing a navy blazer on top of a forest-green sweater, a pale blue striped OCBD, a purple gingham cotton tie and white PS. For pants and shoes: pale green cotton incotex and light brown brogued oxfords. I'll snap some pictures if I have enough time later. Do you think it will be hard to pull off so many colors?

Thanks Mike...this suit is right up your alley, I know, the lapels especially.

I don't care for the sweater with it; seems to distract from the pattern, oddly enough.

Thanks CG. I like the pants the way they are actually, and I do like my breaks shorter. I enjoy the high rise and movement of the leg when I walk in these. As far as the sweater, i can see what you're saying. Between the grey chambray shirt and grey base in the suit, perhaps more of a contrast would work better.

Thanks RG. I'm very happy I got these shoes from the BB sale, wasn't going to, but "forced myself".

btw Rob - i love the choice of shoes. navy suede is always win!!

Thanks Nii. You're right on the mark with the coat too. This thing is double vintage. Was (is) a wool/cashmere Made in GB from the 70's that my uncle gave me when I was in high school (effing 18 years ago). Once I started dressing better again (went to private HS, so you needed to be in a jacket and tie everyday, so I needed a proper "overcoat" but my folks weren't rolling in the dough, so much were my uncle's hand me downs) i took it out of the attic at my mom's, had the length cropped, sides taken in, etc...I just don't think it would make it through another major surgery...

DM, IB, MrD, thanks. The suit is a vintage Turnbull & Asser that I got off the bay about 4 years ago for some silly price like $75 or something. Still one of my best scores of all time. Very heavy tweed as well.

Very handsome combo, Spoo-meister - worth logging on from home to see - and congrats on the upcoming vacation.

As much as you're working the Black Fleece as best as you can, I'm sorry, it's not a cut of clothes suited to anyone, IMHO, save for a midget stick figure, which, for your part, you are happily not.

Spoozy - thanks for the compliment, and the suggestion for multiquote (That Other Website either doesn't have said feature, or it doesn't work, hence my stupidity in not using it sooner). I have tried not to act the technological Neanderthal, and have practiced using it in the very posting! Your combo today was cool - a bit restrained for you, but definitely you.

Thanks upr...yes, the suit's vintage is about 10 years older than my own.
