Thread is on firee right now.

 

I know Synth's varsity has been discussed tons before...but that doesn't mean I still don't really want it.

Thanks so much everyone! Building slowly but (hopefully) will figure it all out.  Focusing on trying to learn fit/colors/materials/etc.  The basics, I guess.

It's a Uniqlo heattech SS crew.  I usually wear a M in shirts, but got that in a L and it creates a nice draping effect.  It feels perfect to wear with a jacket, but I would feel a little weird wearing it all by itself probably.

The varsity looks great on you. fistbump.gif

Just (per your comment in another thread) don't give up on the things you really want -- you'd be surprised at the deals you'll find just refreshing b&s every day. (Or often, I suppose, for the less obsessed).

snow, are those pants the ones that you had your tailor make for you?

User Ivwri and I are working on the j pant cut and those are the ones most people were asking about.
This pair I had a tailor create a simple pair of trousers with an elongated rise and a taper. I gave him some measurements and some specific details like the small pleat and single back pocket. He was pushing me to add the mop buttons instead of black which I think is pretty cool now. (Lonely star in a dark sky, sup noob!!)

They look really good! You've inspired me to try this myself. Did you source your own fabric? I've been searching for a good pair of trousers with a loose top block/tapered hem for a long time to no avail...

Menswear shots from the wedding


Warning: NEITHER STREETWEAR NOR DENIM (Click to show)

 

 

 

Everyone wore their own clothes for the wedding but the ties were all purchased from Kent Wang and gifted to the guys.

 

From left to right: Our officiant is standing farthest left and wearing a burgundy grenadine tie. My best man wore an Epaulet suit in “cadet grey” (now discontinued), a glen plaid tie, and Allen Edmonds shoes. I wore a special-order Epaulet (Southwick for Michael Kuhle) suit in charcoal grey flannel, a shepard’s check tie, and Bexley shoes. My wife’s best man wore a RLBL suit and a houndstooth tie.

 

For anyone considering a MTO suit from Epaulet, I would definitely recommend it. I was really happy with how the charcoal flannel DB came out. Mike had a few such fabrics and I told him to just pick whichever he thought would be best. The one I ended up with has a really fantastic hand and drape, plus while it is properly thick as a flannel fabric should be, it's not so thick that I can't wear it most of the year in LA. The ordering process was really easy, and I liked being able to add features like the ticket pocket and smoke mother of pearl buttons (the latter at Mike's suggestion).

 

It was cool too that my best man wore his Epaulet suit. I've got the same one -- this is the old "Desmond" model that was their first foray into sport coats. It's fused, so it's not at the level of quality of the current offerings, but it's a really cool shape that I've always liked -- slightly more British in a couple of ways.

I thought the newcomers fit looked great, but why is it that like 90% of the approved fits in this thread are three tone monochrome grey/white/black? Sure, that aesthetic works, but it works better for 1) people in highly urban environments, where there is a lot of grey and black to match as background, 2) where there's a lot of cloud cover, so that the austerity of the fit doesn't clash with the "mood" of the day. I mean, sure we have a few stragglers like that guy in England who consistently posts fits with lots of tweed, Barbour, English heritage looking items, but mostly it's "all black everything" here. Is color somehow not timeless? Is wearing some bright gingham/madras/poplin in spring somehow gauche? I don't get it. This thread is just as "uniform"-y as an equivalent thread over at Reddit MFA, but it's not acknowledged here. Even if that aesthetic was the most appealing to me, it's pretty scary for me also to appreciate how expensive that monochromacity is to build. (I totally don't understand the cost structure of that sort of fashion.)
