Think, walk softly but carry a large stick, when it comes to wearing a dress shirt with a suit. If, like me, you sometimes don't wear a jacket, you can go with the bolder colored shirts and a nice tie. If you wearing a suit, the best bet is to make it white, light blue, cream, or some sober pattern/color (checks, stripes, etc). Basically, a neutral color palette that will compliment your suit color, skin tone, and cut of your suit while using a pocket square, tie, or other accessory to add the color and spark. More bold colored shirts make it harder to match ties and stick out like a sore thumb under a suit. Think of a dress shirt as a canvas to build upon, not the finished project.

Hope this helps. Please ask any questions.

No. The fok I always like to start with a complement, but I've had some Fernet, so I'm sorry. However, I'll say this: the jacket fits remarkably well. Find out if the dude died, and if so, if his family's having an estate sale. You look like you grabbed a time machine & set that tchit on random, & beat up hobos for the clothes they were gonna donate. Dude, you are wearing moccasins. FUGGIN MOCCASINS.

I ask because I'm a fairly big guy and have never really been too into that (clothes hugging my body look) but it seems the older I get the less I want my clothing bagging and flapping in the wind.

I'm no Flusser, but I don't think oversized clothing flatters any body type. I have a chest-to-waist drop, so I like to accentuate it with my slim shirts and sweaters; it looks good on me. I'm not sure what you mean by big, but if you have a bit of a belly, you should still wear relatively tight sweaters. I'd search for as tight as possible without the sweater exposing love handles and man-boobs. Basically, clothing has to follow your body curves, but at the same time smooth out any imperfections by not being skin-tight.

Who are you all? And what have you done with the regular WAYWT posters?

I realize that today's theme is "Inspired by Nature", but that would require me to be natural, and this morning I feel about as natural as the Duc des Esseintes in "Against the Grain" (and trust me, if you've not read the book, that ain't natural).

Going with my own theme, I am sure that I have compiled an ensemble guaranteed to have a feature to horrify you all. If so, then my work is done .

Paying some lip service to nature, today's cufflinks are in the form of scarab beetles (from the gift shop of the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford - hometown of the inventor of today's theme, holdfast).

The peacoat is a bit short.

Yes, the peacoat is short, shorter than a suit jacket should be.
Now, what about the trousers lenght? Cammmon, if you're following this forum and/or any related blogs, you should know how disgracefull the trousers look.

The jacket fits well, the tie looks nice enough, the belt is inoffensive, and, from what I can tell, the pants may not cause people to self-immolate IRL. The shirt made my bowels move and the shoes took at least a year off my life.

Unless you are paying homage to a mud puddle for Holdfast's challenge today, don't do it (assuming there is still time).

BTW - I liked your posts in the Vox thread, and theories about the lifecycle of Internet forums.
