HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part II - Page 2332  

post #34966 of 37070
Sorry to interrupt the nature challenge. Second posting here ... interview today. Changed back to office setting = recruiter I'm meeting with told me unfortunately I'd now have to where "khakis". Went back and forth on tie selection. Fixed my socks. Still need to figure out how to get better lighting and better pictures in general. All comments welcome!

I like the suit quite a bit, but I really hope you wore that shirt just for the nature theme!

Being a purple lover, I again love the tie and how nicely it works with the entire ensemb.

Fit is very consistent, making this a coherent look. Too slim for me, but it certainly makes sense and looks good. Colours are appropriate for Mahler, too...

Says the guy with the oversized scarf and too-small jacket... Just razzing, dude. The set-up line was too perfect to pass up!

They're kind of fun; I might pop in soon and see they have these days.

Nice inspiration. I feel you need a little more light colours in the outfit to truly float like a butterfly. Your dog's interest means she clearly felt the outfit met the Nature requirements, though!

I can see that, actually. Quite inventive.

I bet you're relieved the sun came out today! Really excellent effort; my favourite so far. The inspiration comes through so strongly in the actual lool; the colours, textures and feel... great interpretation.

All the usual postural/photographic caveats notwithstanding, the jacket seems sub-optimal, especially around the skirt area. The trousers also appear to have somewhat muddled lines. Sorry.

Well, that's different - usually, it's the Charvet that gets no love around here.

As for "atrocious" in terms of the shirt, jacket and pants, please articulate - are we talking too loose, or some other measurement of atrocity. For the record, I am not in the least offended by the observation - I am genuinely interested in what exactly you're seeing that you don't like.

No need to apologize. I'm here to learn and improve. I want all the harsh criticism. Do you mean the problems can't be tailored? Just not sure what I can do here. I am still losing a few more pounds, and can say it seemed the suit looked much better when I tried it on in the store a couple weeks ago.

Re: the discussion from yesterday/whenever-it-was on using lavender-coloured shirts with dark earth tones like that jacket, I think you've pulled it off, but mainly thanks to the blue of the jumper providing some visual break-up. I still think lilac is best suited to other shades than earth tones, but that's not to say I don't think you haven't created a nice look here.

If you're still losing weight (congratulations on that, btw), then ignore fit worries until you reach your intended steady-state (and stay there for at least a month) or you'll just end up chasing your own tail!

That's a clever choice.

Love this pattern and color combinations. Very nice!

A solid cream linen jacket seems like it should be easy to work with. But most of the time people want to throw every Crayon in the box at it and it begins to look way too busy and costumey. This has a relaxed, quiet sophistication.

My guess is that everything is a bit big, loose and boxy. The jacket seems to slide off of your shoulders a bit rather than having the sleeve heads hit where your natural shoulder is. The trouser legs could perhaps be tapered slightly. I might not have said atrocious, but that is my observation. As for the tie, I have an aunt who wears purple every day in one part of her outfit (and she is a rather large woman, so it can be a lot of purple). I think it has ruined that color for me.
