GQ's essentials for fall - Page 3

post #31 of 69
most of featured sartorial clothings look real trendy. If I was to buy a sartorial clothing, I expect to wear it until it gives up.

these look great. I like everything about both looks and could wear it for years until the cloth dissolves. IMO, modern classic, for anyone with an inner Alfie.



another great look, but sans braces for me.

Name your essentials for Fall 2006 (or: things I want to buy soon):

1. Glen plaid odd pants and jackets (and shirts... and ties...)
2. Well-worn shoes/boots (not distressed/destroyed/exaggerated lasts)
3. Quality bridle-leather accessories
4. Fitted crew-neck sweatshirt
5. Early 90s running shoes
6. Fine-wale, straight legged jean-cut cords
7. Plaid shirts
8. Grenadine ties
9. Olive drab/mil-inspired wool outerwear
10. Ultra-rare deadstock Jay Allen tshirts

Of all that, the only thing that I really responded to was that rich patterned shirt underneath the DB. It is skinny, but works in that contezt with that model.

Really, there's only a few things to keep aesthetically from the 70's and one of them is Raquel Welch, the others being Tina Turner and Pam Grier. Clothing wise it always seemed like pretty bad decade.

We have quite a bit of overlap, Shoreman! I'm also looking for grenadines and nice accessories, along with some interesting tweed trousers. And I live in fine-wale jean-cut cords in winter. (I'm also contemplating breaking down and getting the Brigg I've been lusting after for months. I have the will to resist everything but temptation.)

This is the way I responded to the article as well. Most of the GQ essentials are classics that every guy owns or should own. So I can wear some adaptation of the "essentials" they list (except the huge sunglasses or fatigue jackets), without trying to look edgy like the models (who really tries that anyway?). Of the specific examples shown by GQ, my favorite is the mix of textures on each of the 3 models furthest right in the "gray" picture. I also like the tweed overcoat on the left and the duffel coat is OK. The bell-bottom trousers with the DB suit look ridiculous and the braces are just a silly affectation on the guy in plaid. Edit: shoreman, you should make the Fall wish list a separate thread.

God Al-freakin'-mighty most of those are awful! Not only are they the "I'm so goofy and unkempt and I don't care" look, but they'll look ridiculous in five years' time. I just hate GQ.

EDIT: Never mind...I see it now.

These really aren't so bad. oversized sunglasses - seriously? Isn't this on the outs in women's fashion? Now it's a men's trend? Not for me, thanks. duffel coat - looks good. I don't know that I'd wear it, as it might make me look like a polo poseur, but it looks good. gray - I have a jacket remarkably similar to the double breasted one on the right, except it's navy and made by Belvest. Love it. EDIT - okay, that double breasted suit looks stupid. So maybe some are that bad.

I'll admit to catching the big sunglasses bug a year ago in Sardegna. They go best with sunny days and two seater drop tops.

Jason--everything about those looks, huh? Better stay away from the barber

LK: That dandy you showed doesn't have his suit nearly as tight as those guys do. They probably sized DOWN for God's sake. My essentials (if I ever get them): -light cotton cardigan in grey -silk knit tie in navy -fitting white french cuff shirt -Chelsea boots -decent odd pants Is it just me or is GQ making more of an effort to get NON-white skinny dudes in their pages in the last year?

I love gray so I'm all over that.

I hate the over-sized sunglasses, but they are what they are: fashion.

I LOVE the last overcoat (brown with those great shoulders). But I'd never wear it with a hoodie.

Those turtlenecks with a suit are particularly a throwback to an earlier day--one I didn't like.

If I could see people wearing these so-called essentials this fall, it would be so much more better than whatever they throw on; looking worse than a hobo might even chance.

I like the greys. Aside from that, I don't really see anything that meets my fancy. Some of it just looks goofy; either that or they need to pick better models.

My current Fall shopping list:

- Argyle sweaters (blue, green)
- Grey/charcoal trousers (MTM)
- Peaked lapel SB 2 button suit

And of course a lot this season, as with any season for me, will be impulse buying.

I couldn't agree more, especially with the Tina suggestion.
