if that is his style, yes.

however, this formula is not for everyone.
post #62627 of 117677

I have zero use for Men's Clothing any time soon, regardless of cost / income.  I just don't socialize in any sort of setting where I could dress like that, and I assume many here are the same way (and some of those in MC as well, even if they don't realize it redface.gif).

 

Edit: When I made this post I was speaking of casual settings, nights out with friends, etc.  I still do business casual once or twice a week, though I would still get reamed out over in MC I think - if nothing else, my shoes are too weird.

^ are you a high school student? Because even a college student needs to dress up once in a while for interviews, internships, formal occasions, etc...

Enjoy the years when you don't need to comply to any dress code cheers.gif - for most people, they don't last forever.

IME, If you're wearing suits just for interviews, formal occasions and such, a tailored-to-be-slim, cheap OTR suit will work just fine. (and You don't need MC's help with that).

By just having a suit that fits and isn't boxy, you'll be better than 99% of the other people at whatever event you're attending. And, given that suits are one of the most flattering things you can wear, you'll look good. Not that you can't drop skrilla and that it won't look better the more you pay, obvi, but just jn just a cost/benefit ratio sense, I'd rather put the 5-6 bills i'd spend on a nice suit towards another leather jacket that i'll get way more wear out of.

No, I'm not, I'm gainfully employed tounge.gif but there's a difference between a $100 H&M suit that maybe makes it out of the closet once a year and a 'MC' wardrobe.  I'm not knocking that style or anything at all, it obviously works really well in plenty of people's lifestyles, just saying that I have barely any use for it in the near future and it'd look very out of place on me.

Gotcha. Different jobs call for different dress codes, of course.

I read your previous post as saying that you had zero use for the type of clothing discussed in MC - which I found surprising. I understand what you meant now.

I personally enjoy tremendously tailored clothing and wearing suits and ties on week days. I like meeting with my tailor and getting something made, I like the idea of finding ways to be a little different and add a little edge, even when the dress code limits are fairly clear. I also love breaking away from that on weekends and wearing non-"casual MC" outfits. Go figure wink.gif

I worded my original post badly (see edit).  I'd actually really like to be able to wear more formal clothing easily (although probably less MC and more SW+D), but a combination of age + location + social circle means that a blazer would be way more of a fashion statement than I'd like to make.  I don't think I've ever seen one of my friends wear anything more formal than a dress shirt outside of a funeral, so I just have to appreciate but not wear stuff like that unless I decide to just grab my balls and go for it.

I like wearing tailored "mc" stuff, too, but my job and social circle don't really call for it. Still I've found it good to have a range of clothes on the formality spectrum. not only do I just really enjoy tailored stuff, but occasions will def. pop up through the year when I need to wear a good suit or sport coat. If they're cut right, you can also weave them into your more casual stuff.

toasty, thx for the props. I think you pretty much dress like that now though, yeah? Just basics with a little tailoring and nice shoes thrown in.
I forget who asked about the Carminas, but they're on the Inca last. They're chelseas, but I call them beatle boots since they're pointy. They just don't have the cuban heel.

Honestly, a lot of guys over here in SW&D spend as much on clothing per year as the average MC dude does, and there are a handful of guys in MC who are just starting out and are poor/in debt from college.  Just because your job requires a suit doesn't mean that you have more money than the guy who wears TOJ all day.

 


My job/school/socializing doesn't require that I wear a suit every day, and most of my friends view dark denim and collared shirts as "dressed up."   But I still spend more on my "MC wardrobe" than anything else, because a perfectly-fitting suit and kick-ass shoes show people that I'm serious about style.  It also projects a certain level of maturity.

The sweater jacket works in this context, unlike the last time you wore it.  (In my very humble opinion. colgate.gif)

Very true. Just imo (and this is only my opinion), if you have $$$ to dump, suit(s) and footwear are probably your best options and is where you should NOT cheap out on.
