HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part II - Page 2189  

post #32821 of 37070
No DSLR this morning. Today, the square does the talkin'.

^ Acrid, the jacket looks like it fits pretty well, if a little loose around the collar. Pants pattern is nice; consider cuffs. Tie is nice but meh with that fit, IMO, and the square is just too garish and out of step with the overall look. If there were less of it showing, it might be less offensive, but I'd go with a different square altogether.a

This is the best I've seen you thus far. This is excellent. Also, out of curiosity, where do you get your hats? JJ? Bancraft? I need to know....

I am open to suggestion in re: my "look" (obviously, since my postings have changed since my initial postings), though I always reserve the right to fly in the face of the local aesthetic (as I sense that some of the discomfort with my style comes under the rubric of "too gay" - there is nothing like too much color to make most straight boys very nervous).

As for hats, I used to use the Hat Corner, when it was on the corner of Nassau & Beekman Sts., but, alas, after a short move down the street, the store is no more. I have used JJ Hat Center (the Cathedral of Chapeaux) once, where I bought my Homburg - it seems, from my one experience, to be exactly what a hat store should be. (Whether my Homburg strays from attire to costume is a matter still debated - even by myself.)

I am delighted that you have used the word "gemeinshaft" in describing the local aesthetic as it applies to menswear in these parts. (I like German words - one of my favorites is "Weltanschauung".) Whether I drink all of the SF Kool-Aid in terms of personal style remains to be seen (most likely not), but I am interested in what your suggestions in re: a new style of eyewear would be - it's been suggested more than once that I should revert to tortoiseshell frames (which I wore in the 80's).

If you shoot in RAW you can change the white balance on your computer after you take the pics, so you can experiment with the settings.

I have not fiddled with the white balance as much as I can - as I said before, the new camera is an ongoing experiment. I will see what other manipulations I can do with regard for compensation for fluorescent lighting.

Broken record.....killing it again, PandArts...

Only nitpick would be that the jacket sleeves might be a tad long...or the shirt sleeves a tad short? Could just be the poses and again...NITPICK.

On second look....I think the jacket sleeves are the problem given the bunching in the top two pictures.

Cheers!

You know that's what I was thinking to myself this morning I've been toying with the idea that, know that I've found my stride, to hang up my SF spurs and quit hoggin' all the bandwidth

I think it's the shirt sleeves as they make it to just about the ball of my wrist while the jacket hangs nicely at the ball of my thumb.

No, no - don't quit posting, people need that classic style inspiration!

Spoo, great combo today. Pants need cuffs.

Panda, what can one say? You look awesome as usual. No further commentary needed.

I guess this could have been another entry for the Blue Challenge.
