post #34981 of 37077
Too much Mardi Gras fun last night.......I am beat.

I still got it together today for you though, and even took pics in the rain.

Inspired by nature, specifically...by minerals.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Suit looks too big all the way 'round. It looks like there's a lot of extra material in the slacks, and either the jacket is too short or the crotch of the slacks is hanging too low.

We all know who has the coat for it.

Friday Challenge

A spring night




post #34991 of 37077
Not a regular WAYWRN poster, but couldn't resist to participate in this weeks challenge.

Here's my inspiration, although it's not the season (well, maybe in the southern hemisphere...)





Cell phone pics, no full body shot (nothing to miss though, just dark Levi's 506 and suede boots)
post #34992 of 37077
Bit of a weak effort, especially compared to all you guys. But I'm leaving for vacation this afternoon and so didn't have a chance to put together a good fit.

This is really, really nice. I love your style, TTO.

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.
They were a thought. Not a terribly good one, but that was part of doing that bit last night. Trying to figure things out and what not. As far as the Jacket goes, it was picked up recently on ebay and from what I can tell is actually from 1973. Looking at it now after some discussion and other things, the lapels are huge, but I like it, mostly because of the fit. I was thinking about replacing the shoulder pads and shortening the sleeves though.

I didn't. As above, that's part of the reason for posting it ahead of time. My shoe choices are rather limited thus far, but I'm working on that. I ended up in the same pair of shoes I've had on half of the week. For the shirt I took Spoo's advice and went cream. The shirt seems a bit loose to my taste, but I bought it when I was about 30 lbs heavier. Here's how it came out. The first two are before leaving the house this morning. Apparently I left my hat in the car, so it came along, thus I got pictures outside a few minutes ago.

^ Excellent choice on swapping the shirt and shoes.
