I feel pretty decent about my ability to put an outfit together in terms of materials, textures and colors, but I dread the full-length shot. ffffuuuu.gif

Dont dread the full length shot. You look good in this pic.

Trouser waist height good, trouser length (break) good. Shirt fits well and collar stand height good. Colour contrast good between shirt and SC. SC tail hem length is about an inch short but not very noticable. PS is dowdy in colour and fabric too heavy with the corduroy.

What does GQ know about style anyway. They deal in fashion, dont they!!

Gee Kevin I think you must have touched on an extremely raw nerve there Bud.

The Lady protests too much, she must be a closet case.

Far too close to home I'm afraid Darling!!

Tie is twill for some texture, but ffffuuuu.gif bad quality camera. Warning: Closeup! (Click to show)

Love this look; black shoes and a non-tv-fold square would have completed the look, IMO.

+ 1 to your comment Luftvier. Your avatar reminds me of a Norwegian metal band from early 90's laugh.gif its cool devil.gif

It's Abbath of Immortal. So you're right to be reminded of them. Note, however, that Immortal is still around making albums and touring.

Lufty rocks too much sack, and i am still not a fan of the sack. at the same time i appreciate his concerns about his work environment, and walking the line there between looking good and looking too good. i also deal with this, although not on a daily basis.

UC always looks sharp. He and I have a different approach and stylistic preferences, I think, but similar elements. Also, I'd be careful about using the terms "rocks too much sack" out of context. happy.gif

It wasn't an insult, it was a playful quip. Perhaps we should have a playful quip font?

Which makes sense, if you remember its historic roots as one of the earliest successful ready-to-wear silhouettes, since it is designed to suit the vast majority of men. Luftvier has me thinking about going to the Southwick Douglas model through made-to-measure, since my build precludes ready-to-wear.

Not all of my coats are sack coats, nor are all of my suits. However, it's become the style I prefer most. It "suits" the most because it's anonymous. This is sort of my goal - which I realize is also silly since we're discussing this on an forum where folks are obsessing over fit.

Flusser's thoughts:

The Sack, or Brooks Brothers Natural-Shoulder, Suit

The sack, or the Brooks Brothers natural-shoulder, suit has been, for almost a century now, the backbone of American clothing. First popularized near the turn of the century, it was a silhouette characterized by a shapeless, nondarted jacket with narrow shoulders (which were soft and unpadded) as well as by flap pockets, a single rear vent, and a three- or four-button front. Designed large in order to fit many sizes, it was the first mass-produced suit and it looks it. After all, it was not called the sack suit for nothing.

Perhaps the biggest strength of the sack silhouette is also its basic weakness: it hides the shape of its wearer and takes away any sense of individuality. The reason it has managed to exist successfully for such a long period of time is simply that it appeals to the common denominator. Since it is so anonymous, it offends no one, enabling the wearer to walk into any environment and be acceptably attired.

For those seeking anonymity in their clothing, or wishing to hide an ungainly figure, this may be an acceptable style. But for anyone else, the sack-style suit is woefully inappropriate.

For those who're worried about it or think it's insulting: Think about how many times you've called someone "gay", or other more derogatory terms for gay men, in jest. Now get over being called a twink, or powerbottom. It was an OTT comment meant to poke a little fun at the OTT response to being called twink. Provocative? Perhaps, but it was meant only to highlight the total overreaction.

I just noted this ad from 1961. Note the price of $145. That's about $1,050.00 today, accounting for inflation. Prices really haven't changed all that much.

Yes, I remember, and you were right.

But that you consider me among the more consistent in this thread speaks more about the absence of the old guard than any of my own acts.

lookaround.gif Not white, but not much better. I rushed out yesterday morning, popped the suit in the car, saw that I didn't have socks in my go bag, & asked my wife to grab me a pair of socks. When she asked me what color I was wearing, I said blue, and she brought me those. Didn't have time to change. shog[1].gif

Luft's look may be relatively staid, but the components he chooses elevate it from being just another "suit." It doesn't stand out, but it still looks good. There's something to be said when an outfit is more than just the sum of their parts. It's when someone adds to their suit a tasteful shirt & tie, a well-chosen pair of shoes & socks (although don't look to me for advice on the latter).

One doesn't have to go for "WOW!" Just wear something that fits and don't wear anything ugly. If the look is pleasing to the eye, one has succeeded. Pretty much as simple as that.
