post #33301 of 37070
At first I was a bit unsure about the colours (SC + trousers), but then I liked them.

I like this a lot. Great shoes and the balmorals are a nice contrast with the faded jeans, which are refreshing to see after so much dark denim. Also love the slight stacking of the denim rather than cuffing. I like cuffing too, but the stacking looks great with these jeans and the graceful shoes. Bravo.

you are right about the hand positioning, but overall it looks like a nice suit anyways. buttoning point might be a little high, but it may again be due to your hand positioning. who makes the suit?

- Jan, i think you should invest in a new pair of frames, something a little more modern to give your face some more visual interest (God - sounds gay but thats the best i could come up with!!).
- also, i'd avoid earth on earth tones. they are very hard to pull off. i'd stick with gray pants when you wear earth toned jackets or very light chinos.
- all your jackets appear to be structured (and in some cases dated), which may the stylistic choice i reckon you are going for (structured). yet they dont fit as well as a great structured jacket should. i think you should try other jacket fits (either a well cut strong shoulder or a softer shoulder) to see if the results will be better. IMO softer shoulders would work on you, but thats just my opinion not having seen you up close.

They're from 2008. Too old? Well, I won't switch them too often since I wear special glasses and changing the frame means making new glasses. New glasses = 600 EUR minimum.

You're right. I was in an experimental mood today and was surprised that it didn't look that bad to me.

The majority of my jackets are structured, right. Most of them are Regent Handtailored; they use a hardly changing design. The one on the left is new from 2009, the right one is around 20 years old (that's why I wear it so often, it feels good but is not such a loss if something happens to it):



Note that I'm small and boxy and it's hard for me to find something that is both comfortable in the shoulder/chest area and not too long. If you'd rate both on a scale from 1 (bad) to 10 (good), where are both jackets in your opinion?

Thanks for your comments so far. Much appreciated.

Jan, may I suggest taking another stance for your photos. The broad stance is quite unfavorable for you and makes you look even more boxy and somewhat "plump".
I like your Regent jackets. You should wear them with high-waisted, a little wider and draping trousers. These trousers are better worn with braces than belts.

High-waisted trousers would work much better with your proportions than the typical mid- or low-waisted trouser which are mainstream right now.

Right. Those pictures are older. In the meantime I started reading books on portrait photography and changed my posing already (as can be seen in the picture from earlier that day). This is another shot from today (but since I wasn't wearing that outside--just testing how it looks--I didn't post it):

That's a very good point. I already have two grey trousers that are high-waisted, but I only wear them with a sweater since I'm afraid that they look too outdated when worn with a shirt. But I'll investigate into your advice. Thanks.

Thanks for the comments.

HF...I agree on the lapel width. I am starting to go a bit wider on my lapel widths, but love the pattern of this coat! I may eventually phase this one out, but it is great for casual wear.

UC....Thanks. I agree that the flower is the definition of "affected."

Nii....I have to get thanks to Phatty G on the collar roll. He helped me out quite a bit with the specs.

Today, it was Temple Sinai in Stamford, CT, and the outfit was total overkill, but so far as I've ever seen, it's no sin to overdress for shul.

I like the suit and the shoes, details?

The suit is New & Lingwood RTW, fall 2009, and the shoes are Bexley, a French brand (made in Portugal), with a website - www.bexley.com, IIRC. They were not expensive, and I had always wanted a pair of wholecuts that weren't blobby, or too pointy, and these seemed to fit the bill.

Thank you, gnatty, though from your usual selections, my outfit today was even further from your usual tastes as reflected by your normal postings. An unexpected compliment, then, for which I thank you.

It turned out that it didn't, but the attire did not go unappreciated. The tie is Charvet, the suspenders Brooks Bros, and the tie refuses to go with anything other than a white shirt (it's quite a diva in that respect), and the suspenders are the most neutral pair I own (and the trousers have no belt loops - God bless the United Kingdom . . .)

Going sockless today...

Beautiful day in So. California... went to a late brunch with some girlfriends of mine at a local neighborhood bar and watched some Laker action.

How's this?

Long jackets look good on you. Don't buy the J.Crew Ludlow ones anymore (even though they're easy). You just look so much better in the long and this right here is proof.
