Cats love lounging on my tweed.




I love the look today. The pant and shoe combo is killer.

Thanks, y'all. I decided to go berzerk today since I'm stuck inside and everything. The pants are Mabitex, yep!

That jacket is tremendously good, both in terms of fit and style on you. Nice one.

Thanks! I suppose it is slightly less formal, yes. Part of it was an early morning appointment, something I haven't had to contend with for a little bit, so I wasn't feeling particularly sharp when choosing what to wear. Maybe I should decide while half-asleep more often.

Very good memory; yes it is.

That suit (and therefore this jacket) is MTM Ede, and I also have other 2B MTM suits from them as well. The other 2B suits lack a waistcoat, and I find the buttoning point on them to be a bit lower than this one (and so, more flattering when worn without waistcoat). I don't know if it was deliberately shifted upwards a touch on this jacket because I ordered a waistcoat (perhaps to ensure the right amount of waistcoat showing?), or whether I'm just imagining things. I ought to compare properly at some point, or ask.

That makes me smile. The trousers and bow tie are wonderfully eccentric. And bright enough to melt any ice, surely?

Something about the shades being used is just a fraction off to my eye (more so in terms of the shirt) and with such a daring tightrope-walking outfit, I think that small difference is enough to throw it off slightly.

Still miles ahead of many though.

Jcrew, HY, BB, JLC, Aldens, moleskine

This is IMO a very nice casual outfit. It also looks comfortable. Three thumbs up.

It's a one-off handmade piece I picked up in a small shop many years ago. Not sure of the case material but I'm guessing that it's a resin. It also uses a Schmidt Iridium point.

Here's a closer shot:

Thanks for the comments on yesterday's look. After much soul searching, though, I've decided to keep my earrings...

Your sense of humor in the face of icy conditions is to be commended, though your eccentric choices may lead some to conclude that you are suffering from sartorial cabin fever

I am amazed at the selections - the purple/white houndstooth trousers are one thing, but where does one find purple dress shoelaces? You must be a genius at sourcing the out-of-the-ordinary.

Pandarts was right - this outfit should have been your sprezzatura entry.

Urban Comp Fantastic as always....probably the style that most closely resembles the ideal in my head.

Someotherstyle THAT is the way you do the basics with a little hint of something more - very very well done and fantastic fit...as in actual fit....and as in 'fit.
post #33059 of 37070
Yeah, I am phasing out the skinny lapels. I am not really that lanky though. I am tall, but a bit top heavy. I summoned the lady to take some proper pics at some point.

Unfair way of blaming Europe for your look.

How good did this work? I'm considering to shorten some of my SC but I'm unsure how far I can go and whether the results are fine. What are the critical points? How much shorter can a jacket be made? Around 1"?

I like your color choice. Blazer seems a bit wide at your neck.

I like the peaked lapels. I like the whole look, too. Relaxed, comfortable. Very important in my opinion.

That'll make it look better until you can afford a better one.

What's wrong with wearing a blazer, i.e., with golden buttons?

Also, wearing khaki chinos with a navy blazer is a little bit "average-looking sunday morning churchgoer attire" for my taste.

LOL. I guess this depends much on one's location.
