^The shoes immediately draw attention to the hem, might be better with more conservative footwear

no actually I do... maybe I didn't quite say it correctly. In fact I posted a fit a ways back in which I wore a more snugly fit V-neck sweater and shirt over looser, wool trousers... think Oxford Bags kinda style. A few posters as well commented on the look reminding them of Fred Astaire which of course I took as a complement. I do dig it... would just really like to see it.

Btw... If I had time I'd try to dig up my pic but I actually have no idea how to do that. Is there a way to search one's own posts for specific items? Or only those posts in which you have posted pics and/or fits? I've been meaning to ask and this would help.

But Stitchy if you find my pic (probably from Nov. '11-March '12) let me know or re-post it!

the shoes are hard to see clearly, but admittedly they do look a little weird. Do they have some kind of different captoe on them or something?

KN - see my ninja edit, i was talking to afp. wink.gif

i dont how to search posts by items, but you can query all your posts in a certain thread, tho. that narrows it down. well, for most people it does.

Thx Benesyed! Ya that me! It's a love/hate thing. I've been blasted for it and complemented as well so to each his own. Although I frequently change hair styles and not just by the cut but also with styling from day to day. Anyway...

Thx Stitchy! Nice find. I need to practice my searching skills (that even sounds lame while I'm typing it LOL). I forgot I was wearing that Givenchy double breasted coat... I love that thing. EDIT: Winsome... thank you Stitchy... I'm flattered. shog[1].gif

Some may have noticed I've been a bit AWOL as of late (work/school) but I have gotten more settled recently and have taken pix of some more fits. Hope to share with y'all soon... take care fellas. bigstar[1].gif

Bow tie is really silly, jacket is weirdly geometric, still not sold on the pants flair/fitted top, shoes are terribad.

I think he only gets a pass by some because he's obviously a handsome dude, it helps

bow ties in general or just the one I'm wearing? lol8[1].gif It's either Etro or Charvet I can't remember. Jacket goes with the hair... love/hate so we'll leave it out. But I actually am curious about the shoes. They really are just regular shoes... Sassetti I believe and nothing unusual. Why do you hate them so?

Sorry didn't realize that was actually you KN, thought it was pulled of the #menswear tumblrs, was reading too quickly I guess. Maybe would have been a little less harsh lol

Bow ties rarely ever look un-affected, it's pretty rare and often is an age thing. The shoes have a drab color, an elongated toe and a squared off toe box. Sort of eurotrashy imo

y u jelly tho?

i think that you can break the pieces down and harsh on them, but if you step back and just see it as a whole, i think the fit looks quite cool. and yah, he seems to be a handsome bastard.

crackup[1].gif haha... so now you know it's me you feel a little guilty!! No worries... I'm not offended. I agree with you on all accounts. Like the hair, jacket kinda love it or hate it.... bow ties are I agree somewhat affected for sure. But they've been growing on me....
[as an aside I've taken to wearing them on Wednesdays as my Civ Pro professor (who is actually quite famous) wears a bow tie every day and we do some silly bow tie Wednesday thing in a futile attempt to add levity to Civil Procedure (clearly impossible)]

agree about the shoes... although I'd say borderline Euro trashy... yeah. But I kopped 'em for like $95 and had been wearing them as I didn't have other shoes at home. But on the whole I think it's cool and I just hope others will as well.... respectful disagreement appreciated.


funny pix of my bow tie wearing Civ Pro prof! LOL but the dude is srsly a f'g genius! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It's not about the looseness of the pants, it's the silhouette. They're baggy up top and tapered at the hem, while that tumblr image has a delightfully wide hem and I love the way it breaks over the shoes.

Edit: talking about Bene
