The trousers & shoes don't work at all for me, at least with this look. Sorry.



Too wide for me. Height was good though. They would probably be fine if they were floppier but they're not, so appear too wide/clownish. For a bigger guy, they'd probably be fine.

I like Francis Ford Coppola's bow-tie here. Mind you, when carrying that much bling, you can get away with almost anything I guess.

(Coppola pic taken from this pretty cool blog post by Le Noeud Papillon. A blog that does exactly what it says on the tin.)

I'd skimmed Spoozy's post before; what leaps out at me is that he seems to have matched his shirt to his trousers. Nutty, in a 1960s way, but still a step too far

I agree with you re: Tom Ford and Francis Ford Coppola. I also very much like that blog post and am glad you introduced me to it - the vintage images are very welcome. I wonder if he's seen my own bow tie posts

What about Hackett? I don't know if you recall my black tie ensemble of last summer, but I think that bow is a very serviceable size in both width and height. Of course, I don't know who the actual maker is; either way, I have another one in black with white pindots that I plan to sell on

And my favorite, the New Boots:

Something I have often noticed about your fits - your suit trousers are not particularly slim-cut, yet you have the trousers cut really short. I've seen this less-than-no-break style look OK on very slim-cut suit trousers (a colleague of mine sports it and gets away with it) but in your case I can't help feeling a modicum of break would be a huge improvement.

Thanks.

This was NDW's suit at one point. He has shorter arms and legs than I do. I did not have the sleeves or the hem of the pants done. These actually fall a little lower normally, but I had the adjusters cranked in to hold them up a bit more. I am not a fan of the break, although sometimes I have some (usually where I asked for none, and got some anyway. ). I do get your point though.

Thanks, Spoozy.

On the bat wing versus butterfly wing bow tie- see Roger Moore and Sean Connery on that blog. Note Roger's shirt ruffles.

FRIDAY CHALLENGE

This one's for you Mr. Spoo.

But first a few disclaimers.

1. I'm a rookie so my "A" game may be more of a "C-" game, please don't hold it against me. It's my first MTM so I think it fits best of all the suits I have.

2. Manton, before you even start, I do not own any decent shoes with laces. I blew my load on these Zegna Couture loafers before I knew enough about shoes. Untill I can afford another pair this is what I am working with.

3. Whnay, I'm not a big photo guy my only camera that can upload is my phone. Too add, my wife can only handle taking so many photos that all look the same to her, she is still getting used to my affair with SF. Please therefore forgive the photo quality.

4. For some reason, maybe the way I'm standing the jacket sleeves seem to look a tad longer than they are IRL.

5. I am including some fit pics and some close ups that better represent the true colors of the items. Per the advise of a certain member here I did not wear a PS, but I put some pics of it in as I would like to know if you guys think it's a good look with this outfit.

So, Mr. Spoo if you think these are up to snuff please include them in the challenge, if not hopefully it will be worth the post for the feedback. Cheers.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I don't have any good green ties or I would have worn one of em. :P

Also Spoo, I'll throw in that I actually like the outfit everyone was calling too busy. Love the pattern on those trousers, and deets on the tie?

edit: Opinions on my new tie above? Got it today, not sure if it's too busy but I like the pattern. From afar it looks pretty cool, imo.

The orange cords are truly shining, yet i love them. And the work pretty well with garnments which´s textures are not smooth as silk.
