Recent non-Sartorialist Looks - Page 629

post #9421 of 12865
Exactly Hendrix, I never said don't have fun or enjoy clothes for what they are.

Actually I rather like the skinny suit in general. Being a guy who has always quite lean myself I've found that slim looks do well on me.

And I'm perfectly fine with people enjoying fashion in general if that's their thing.

However, as I've already said about that particular post. When EVERY element is taken to the extreme and is also taken straight from the style pages of the current fashion houses it says nothing to me other than 'fashion victim'.

BTW, If there were anything creative or self expressive about it I might be more appreciative of it.

Unless you think the skinny suit and the bell-bottoms are equally ridiculous, in which case we probably can't help you.

I do not believe you will be able to provide and precident for the statement that the super skinny suit sillouette has indeed endured decades of respect. Rather it is merely a fashion look that has come and gone and is now back again. There is quite a difference between looking back into the past and pulling out a singular example of a particular point in time and labeling a classic simply because it existed once before.

My point is EXACTLY that the super skinny suit with 2' cuffs and derby work boots is as ridiculous as bell bottoms and platform shoes. In that it is a particular combination that has not been previously done and is an extreme from the mean. Only the mean is classic.

BTW, I don't recall having asked for your help, although thank you for your kind offer.

Skinny suits have been a favourite in the mod community since the sixties, and is still considered quite cool. They seem to come into, and go out of, fashion in cycles, but they´re never really gone.
Being a fan of that kind of music I will probably always have a soft spot for the whole aesthetic connected with it, even though I don't wear my clothes that slim.

By the way - were you ever into Jai? I loved his mod look and that CD 'Heaven' was one of my favorites of that year (1997). I think his look inspired the last time I went in for a VERY slim look. That's been nearly 15 years ago.

Belt and suspenders on those glasses - looks like a half eaten tootsie roll

IMO no respectable grown man should have legs that are smaller than my arms.

Very nice indeed. The colors coordinate very well. Although I would have preferred a different PS. The one in the picture looks like a rag off the floor.

Very nice outfit, pretty much ruined by an over-flowery square and this silly glasses thingy.

Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory -- Coco Chanel

The pocket square looks like an athletic sock

^ The sock/pocket square look was originated by style icon Mr. Moo.

I believe we've seen this before, and it was pointed out the glass-rope was attached to the wrong side of the frames, rendering it useless functionally...it's fine with function, but as an affectation? silly.

^ agree, I think this was post before (or some variation of this)... anyhow, conclusion was something along the lines of trying way to hard... not cool...
