HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part II - Page 2223  

post #33331 of 37075
First WAYWRN post. Picture taken before an early Valentine's Day dinner. Sorry y'all, no pictures of the lady this time. Please forgive the terrible photos, I will try to improve. Nonetheless, I did include the obligatory bathroom shot. The collar of the jacket normally hugs the shirt, but I used some wonky poses.

Comments are appreciated. First wear with the new suit, so has not been broken in yet. No alterations other than what was necessary.







Deets:

Ring Jacket for the Armoury Navy 3/2 Suit
Drakes Striped Grenadine Tie
Simmonot-Godard Hank
Brooks Brothers Slim Fit Shirt (the XSF are dirty)
Marcoliani OTC Charcoal Houndstooth Socks
C&J Lowndes

Pretty good, Newcomer. Fit on the jackets looks good from the photos your posted. Couple things worth improving upon would be a wider collared shirt, so that it fits under your lapels; and to burn/donate that tie.

I was being serious.

Thanks Mr. Moo for the comments. Shirts are the next obstacle that I plan on tackling, and will probably opt for a collar that is wider and has more tie space.

And the tie! Bah, I love this tie.

You rock loud socks well. Not everyone has this ability, therefore you owe it to humanity to continue.

Welcome, Newcomer.

My only advice would to suggest adding something with some "motion".

The graph print shirt, straight lined repp tie and vertical lined pochette are all so... straight. Try it with a pochette that has a paisley, or some movement to counteract such straight lines everywhere else.

Looks good though.

What do you guys think of this coat? Ugly? Too much? Okay? Need some input.

That cloth is hella FU... but the cut is rather Rodney Dangerfield.

That is actually a really good point. Never even thought about a 'motion' concept. I have a great Rubinacci square for that, definitely spoo approved . And by the way, I would really recommend the Ring Jacket coats / suits (I remember you having some interest in them a while back). Very soft shoulders, and looks to be incredibly well constructed--especially for the price point. Watch out for the pants though, they definitely fall under the nut hugger category. The cut is very flattering, even for someone with as awkward of a body as I have.

Great coat! Very English country look. I like the slanted pockets with flaps that are horizontal at their ends. Nice pattern matching as well. Would look better with the top button undone. Do you know who the maker is?

i thought it looked very similar to the PL stuff i had seen on here ... so not surprised PG had a hand in its provisioning. well played.

This is another shot from today (but since I wasn't wearing that outside--just testing how it looks--I didn't post it):

lapels are fine, but both of those jackets have serious shoulder issues. your jackets should sit on your neck firmly, form a smooth line to your shoulders and drape gracefully. just look at folks like someotherstyle, PG, Vox or Orgertorix's jackets and observe the smooth transition from collar to shoulder to cuff. that is what you should strive for.

also ditch the gadgety zip up sweaters and the like, underneath sports coats. go with a simple solid dress, well fitting s/c and you would look significantly well put together.

stay stylin'

nice first post. i dont know if it is your stance of otherwise (since the issue is not present in your second pic) but in the first and third pic, you are displaying some collar gap. see if a tailor can rectify that if it is a true issue.
