HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 827

Being honest doesn't mean using abusive language. There is a civil way to put anything, however people seem to need everything sugar-coated before it being handed to them without crying like a baby on this forum lately.

Collar looks a little too long to me.

Interesting. If anything, I find it too puny.

I have the opposite problem, I am too scared to post fit pics because I know I will then have to toss half/all my wardrobe and start over laugh.gif

I recently posted a fit pic, and Spoo was able to set me straight (so to speak) in a very gracious manner. I will admit I was hoping that I would get approval, but knowing that the waist was taken in too much is very helpful going forward and making new purchases. To be honest I still plan on wearing the SC as I love the pattern and I am too poor to buy more SCs at the moment, but I see no reason to get up in arms over asking for someone else's opinion, and then not liking what I hear.

Some do. Others don't. Just say it, why do you care about the poor bastards who take it personally? If anything, they should be grateful that people like you provide pointers. Nii often provides critique and I feel that people are thankful in general. I know I learned a great deal from him.

There is also something called constructive criticism. And I have a sneaking suspicion that people would not be so "honest" and present themselves in such a rude manner if they were actually face-to-face with the target of their criticism as opposed to being a bully from the safety of a keyboard.

Maybe it's the angle? Or maybe I have bought into the spread collar hype laugh.gif I say this as I admire the two OCBD shirts I just received bigstar[1].gif

That's a normal, healthy reaction, imo. Without getting too psych I feel that people take direct critique as a judge of character here. If somebody says you can't match patterns well it says nothing of you as a human being.

Rather than inviting discussion I mean it to invite even a small bit of self examination. I guess I don't know how to do that other than by making rather acerbic comments. Neither I nor anybody else can go through each fault and try to explain why, especially when the current posters are so damn self assured. I don't know what happened here, but I know that there is a certain change in the style of dress (not that it was ever consistently great) that shows a lack of fundamental knowledge. It often works well when somebody who understands the fundamentals of color, shape, proportion etc messes around with them, but when people just run around in terribly ill-fitting clothing and claim that it is some sort of personal sprezzatura (spazzatura is more like it) then the community owes them some sort of negative reaction. Just my .02, but I will try to be nicer in this age of sensitivity.



I think you're fighting a losing battle mate.

OK, here is a critique. NYRanger's suit is way too tight across the hips giving the impression of saddlebags. Stylewise, the pocket square is both too prominent in its height, and seems to be a bit at odds with the jacket and tie as far as texture and overall look.

NYR I really like the combinations you come up with!

Is the PS white or light blue? Also, there would appear to be an odd indentation on the side of your SC, could be nothing, just something I noticed.

I recently received my first MTM sport coat, and I LOVE it. It was made by Anthony Paranzino, a.k.a. Tony the Tailor, a.k.a. my new best friend. Tony's a forum member so you can contact him via PM, or you can reach him through his website: http://www.bestmastertailor.com.

Meh, I don't post here prevalently just because I really don't see the point of doing so. If I put together a good outfit, I will post away--but until I can adequately build up my wardrobe, I would rather just learn.
