I dress sensibly and dress to the personification of money. You think I care what you think? I wouldn't wear a £2700 piece of metal on my wrist if I did.

 

1. No you don't

2. There is nothing "sensible" about grey suede shoes

3. No hate, but this statement is proof of your insecurity. There is nothing interesting about your style. It's boring. It has no personality to it. Even from the "personification of money" standpoint you kind of fall short because you would be wearing Finnamore and Kilgour shirts instead of T.M. Lewin. And before you go into a rant on how SW&D only likes "bummy Looking fits" let me shut that down now

Wow, I didn't expect this fit to be so controversial, so thanks for all the feedback, guys, appreciate it. Here are my thoughts:

 

Warning: blah blah blah stanley's fit blah blah blah (Click to show)

Well, you caught me. Thing is, in the last year, no one at my office has, and they are comfortable as hell, so...

 

I will say that the cardi and the fact that the shirt is tucked is really all that is making this a more bizcas fit. I think if I lost the cardi and untucked the shirt, the shoes wouldn't register the "fake casual dress shoe" vibe you're getting here.

 

Point taken nonetheless.

Brown chunky florsheim long wings would be great here, in fact, I even know a guy selling a pair. (cough)

 

Oh, fuck, sure... NOW you guys want to see the longwings (that everyone has hated on in the past). 

 

I don't disagree they would have worked here though, I guess Parker nailed it and I just didn't realize how much I was channeling the 60s with the rest of the selection & arrangement here. Bearing that in mind, the CPs definitely stick out as wrong.

other than shoes I don't think I actually have a black anything. I know, I know... sometimes I feel like I don't belong here either.

but I do agree a blue shirt/black cardi/tan pants/light sneaker fit would not be a bad choice.


...oh, my watch strap is black

This is perhaps the greatest sin of all. Gotta coordinate accessories with belt/shoes.

 

No. Come on, we can't be this pedantic. This is not MC. Not everything has to match. And frankly I "can't be arsed" to change my watch strap every day. I think it's more important that it match when I'm wearing black shoes since that's when my outfits are more formal, if that makes sense. The rest of the time, fuck it.

I will grant that they may have shrunk a bit more than I expected after I got them hemmed (and yes, I did wash first before hemming, too) but I reject the notion that they are too short. And does chino stacking really look that great? Anyway, I think the length is fine. Back to Parker's observation, he is only 2 years too early for this picture of my dad in 1964 (which I've posted before):

Now the length here might be pushing it too much, especially with the light-colored (white?!) socks, but I don't think it's necessarily a "bad" look, and certainly in comparison to these, I don't think mine are too short.

Set fire to them brown sneakers

Black watch strap + Navy + Brown = no

Dislike the mix of colours 

That cardigan + possible bunching of a ill-fitting shirt makes you look like you are 9 months pregnant/have a spare tire.

 

Just my opinions though

 

Whoa there turbo.

 

I will grant that the sleeves on my shirt may have shrunk a centimeter or two more than I desired. But otherwise, see above.

The shoes are the only bit that doesn't work - pair of suede playboys FTW.

 

Thanks dude. I could go for a pair of suede chukkas, but I don't really like the sole on those.

198lb, bulking him towards the 210 mark. As you can see he loves searching for food. Now, can anyone beat my fit with this beautiful creation beside me on a Pets-at-home canvas leash?

SVB, What style Epaulet pants are those?! NICE!

 

Thanks! they are olive gunchecks in the Walt fit. I don't think there are any left though. I got mine in the great size 28 clearout of Sept. 2012.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

 

This is a death sentence.

 

Give the guy a chance, even if he is a British asshole. It's a nice contrast to all the American and half-American (read: Canuck) assholes we already have.
