Stitches - I think the light jacket/darker pants thing is always a challenge to pull off. I have some very pale grey flannel trou - those or cream flannels would work best with that jacket I think. Or tan twills or something in the light shade family.The medium-dark grey kinda steals that jacket's cheery thunder, or contrasts in a way that diminishes both. It's not bad really, just kinda blah.

cool. thanks, baron. indeed the lighter up top is always a challenge.

i am actually wearing tan twills right now, they might be a good match for the SC, though i wonder if there may be not enough contrast. i could try with light/dove gray as well.

just for reference, these are the pants i wore with it in the past.

Do you have link to the reddit thread? I am curious to read

Agree with everyone else, sport coat's too light in comparison with rest of fit. I'd start with the same sport coat which is really nice but wear lighter shades for shirt, tie, pants, shoes, and overcoat. Even in the pic right above with brown pants I think the shirt's too blue and needs to be lighter. (If memory serves me believe Synthese made this same observation when you posted it originally.) This is like yesterday's version of the bright purple pants. Your personality's "bright" might be why you like loud contrasting colors but I think most of us would prefer your fits with more color sophistication while keeping your bright personality. 

 

:foo:

I like that better stitchy. Similar tones but at varying lightnesses makes it work for me - the different shades/different tone in your first fit is too much of a contrast for me. But then again we like monochrome here on SW&D wink.gif

I need to read that book. I've read great reviews for it. There were a few articles on homelessness in SF after some hoity toity type in the tech sector basically said that they should all be kicked out of the city for being scabs on an otherwise nice area.

One of the biggest rationales for raising minimum wage (aside from it being long overdue) is that the lowest income earners spend their money the quickest and economists think that this will inject more capital into the economy.

 

It's sad but true. It's much easier to find a job when you have a home... and a job.

thanks, lmao.

i am glad you pointed that last part out, as i did not want to myself. its something that i mentioned yesterday in the NMWA thread about the different frozen waves coats available for pre-order from SS.

todays fit got universal love in MC, and universal non-love (well maybe that is the wrong word, but everyone seemed to agree on the critique) here. in MC having contrast, even high contrast, is liked, while here, the preference is much stronger for tonal combinations.

different strokes for different folks perhaps. either way, i do see what the issue is people have with it from an intellectual standpoint, and even perhaps from an aesthetic one as well.

I couldn't wear this myself but I like bright monochrome MC:

Shoes obviously aren't monochrome but balances the blue unlike a light brown pair would. Still a little too loud though.

Styling all over those botanical garden tourists

Don't get me wrong, I love a good monochrome MC fit too. But they don't all have to be. :-)

Not surprisingly tho, monochrome MC fits are appreciated much more here than there.

Should've told him there's a dress code for fitpic bystanders.

I like non-monochrome too when shades and contrasts are balanced.

 

Just in case horse wasn't dead. :embar:
