I had you on ignore, but ignore on SF blows. It still shows your post, just hides the text. It is worthless and really is just an enticement to take someone off of ignore.

Further, I don't come here looking for a circle-jerk, nor do I lack self-esteem. However, your commentary is often condescending and insulting when there really is no genuine reason for it...and this is not only commentary directed towards me, but towards others as well. I am not the only one to notice it, just maybe the only one with a big enough mouth to mention it in public.

The rest of that crap up there ^^^^^ is more HS than I can muster myself.

Thanks. First day back, I can do classic. I'll get bored of it again soon.

Leaning aside, looks good.

I think it's possible to read niidawg's posts like that, but you have to remember that it's easy to misinterpret something written only in text. For what it's worth, I think he merely speaks in a familiar, joking style and I don't find it offensive. It read it like the way an older brother or close friend would speak. If anything, I prefer to see more criticism, less praise in this thread.

I like the shirt & tie combo. I, for one, like purple in its various hues. However, I would suggest trying a different color pocket square, perhaps something opposite the color wheel, and see if you like the outcome. It's harder to have a pocketsquare complement rather than match, but the result is generally much more interesting. See HF's example below.

The tie: I like the idea. See if you can find one in the same color, but less shiny. Also, have you thought about slimming the jacket sleeves? It's a simple procedure that takes OTR to a higher level. Of course, it should be said that first you'd have to start slimming your shirt sleeves as well, and then it's just $$$$$

Fuller trousers look great on you. I especially like the shirt/tie. Great way to take the security guard look to a higher level

Nice collar roll. Glen plaids are always difficult to photograph well - if it's not hi-rez or a huge pic, it always looks distorted, at least on my screen.

Thanks! Good to be back. Well, in suits and on SF, that is. Not so much back in the cold.

You must be feeling the same temperature shock as I am. At least it was bright and sunny today. I don't think I could have faced an overcast and cold day.

Thanks. They actually are dark brown, they just didn't photograph well. Here's a better shot:

Kent:

If you are comfortable with the type of criticism you receive, then I have no right to complain on your behalf.

Some cool stuff in here. You're playing with some fun styles.



It's jarring to see your fits from a different perspective!

Looking good, though.






Back home from a couple of weeks or so in the sun.


Good to have you back, C. I hope that you had a great time away. Looking impeccable as usual.

Look forward to tomorrow's entry.

Thanks again

Clint

A gingham shirt and solid knit tie would have been a home run. Or, alternatively end-on-end blue shirt and a big stripe tie. Lots of room to experiment with this great jacket. You'll get there soon. The SC is a great foundation!

Thank you for the great feedback. I have precisely zero knit ties, and only a couple solid ties at all, so it's clear I need to change that. I found that jacket at a local thrift for all of $5, I spent 10x as much on alterations.

Thanks UC. I have a difficult body to fit. I used to be 40R pretty much OTR, but began doing P90X a year ago and it's much trickier now (but it's a nice problem to have). I plan on getting measured for something in the near term, and will inquire about sleeve widths. I've been lusting after your Polo suit in the Seller's forum...

Q: Is arrogance like style? Do you either have it or you don't - can it be learnt?

A: 1. You should know you have plenty of it (2 points)
2. This is great coming from you. (1 point)
3. I have reached sartorial Everest, everything I say is beyong reproach (10 pts)

If he wants you to stop criticising him, just stop.

You really are a jerk. You need a serious ego check.

No wonder most of the respected members have left here and you will have noticed I'm on the way out.
This place is becoming like Animal Farm.

Jesus, haven't bothered for so long I've forgotten how to quote properly.
