HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part II - Page 2456  

post #36826 of 37070
83 Degrees today and humid. It is starting to get uncomfortable to take pics outside. I can't wait for the sauna of summer!

Polo
Mastai Ferretti
Vintage Silk Knit
Maison Martin Margiela
Bass Weejuns

Have a good one!

Mike

It has a lilac stripe. I have a lilac tie on the way. I can handle purple in small doses, and certain hues.

Thanks, Spoo.

Mike

p.s. these are the same pants you said were too long and too baggy in the legs. As you can see, it was just camera angle and that they rode down a little in the older pic.

I don't - I let my shirt laundry do it for me . As it is, this shirt is relatively new and unworn, so that helps much in that regard - not enough time to get "ring around the collar".

Yeah, looks perfect now. I'd wear this whole rig. Looks great.

You also appear tall and of a reasonable shape - your suit jacket certainly looks as if it could use some waist suppression - just my opinion, from the evidence shown.

Thank you for commenting! While the suit worn is of average quality, I think those humps showing are perhaps more a case of traveling and poor posing? It seems I have problems of not only poor pictures, but not being able to pose naturally for shots. So much to learn...

I did have some waist suppression done to this suit, but it is possible I need more. A couple more candid shots to show the shoulders aren't as bad - but maybe the sleeves are?

Not bad at all. The shoulders may be off, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt until you provide a full body shot. You may catch heat for that tie - the fact that it is pretty bright/light, but I like it. I don't like white pocket squares with different colored edges, but that's just an opinion, and not a criticism of the color coordination, which is pretty good.

Bad pics today, appropriate for my new Panta tie.

I don't really like that jacket, but colors/patterns of the rest of the fit make me not entirely understand why. Net net = nice fit.

Nice colour combo.

I may be in a minority here (won't be the first time! ) but I don't understand the acceptance/praise that this form of tie knot gets on SF. A traditional FIH would look much better IMO. Exposing the inner loop may seem like an affectation of higher style but to me it just looks like you don't know how to tie a tie properly.

welcome to the thread. suit looks a bit lifeless. I cant put my finger on what is wrong, but it just doesn't jive. I think it might be just the cut of it. Maybe a better fitting jacket would make it more awesome. keep posting - lots to learn around here.

Thanks, appreciate the input. The suit is actually the same one posted the other day. The shoulders are a bit on the big side.

Honestly, if I had all this in my closet I'd have worn this with a much lighter shirt and suit, but I'm making do.

Thanks. I get your comment on the tie as well. Personally, I think it helps fill out the knot a wee bit and has a bit of a playful look to it. I'm already over-dressed compared to a lot of people in my office, so I suppose I have a bit of a tendency towards trying to dress it down a bit.
