gotta +1 this. romeo, your shirts are the weakest part of your wardrobe, they distract from otherwise solid outfits.

Posted almost the same last week but with a sloppy tie knot, and the tie/PS colors were a bit off together. The tie is dark grey and the jacket is blue but my photographer needs more practice. :) Not going to make a lot of excuses, if ifs and buts....

If you're interested in learning you came to the right place.
 

 



Thanks for the comment. Well, I must say that it is not easy for me either - for example shirts and sweaters are always too baggy, so I need to have them altered. I guess that it is best to have the figure somewhere between mine and yours :)

I am really sorry if I did offend you in any way. I am from Europe (Czech Republic) and I did not realize that this could sound racist. By teenage-nigga-baggy I meant the guys from our country who are slightly younger (or same age) as me and who wear baggy clothes and are trying to look tough and gangsta. You would know what I mean if you had an opportunity to see them. Hope you can underestand that and sorry again!

The jacket sleeves aren't as short as they look-they are being pushed up by the French cuffs.
The tie is already on death row, and will be incineration as soon as a suitable red replacement can be acquired
The socks look better in person, so please forgive the vilification commited by the camera.
Question: are the pants too short?




Weird things going on with sleeve pitch.

Thank you! It has a very subtle herring bone texture.

This is a nice looking suit. Tastefully and well paired with a red tie and simple PS. But, the suit coat, in my opinion, is too small and too short. The tell tale view is the profile; not flattering the gluteus maximus. Maybe just one size larger would be perfect. And, maybe, that would solve the problem with the French cuffs sticking out so far. Perhaps the shirt sleeves need to be shortened? Everyone would like to have a nice, trim silhouette, but the coat must drape nicely. Holdfast's post on his newest suit is the perfect example of how a suit should look--front, side, and the crucial rear view. Good luck on your quest for the perfect suit!

Love the shoes! Not really loving the upper part of the outfit though... The colors are too much alike. 

Maybe a darker tie (navy) or another shirt would upgrade this outfit.

See!! You can use other words to describe what you mean.  Maybe you should try and consider what you're writing and the audience that you could be potentially addressing BEFORE someone picks you up on it.

 

If you're saying that you do not have american television in the Czech Republic then I would like to see evidence.  If you are not saying that, you MUST have heard that term before, otherwise, why use it?

 

And no I am not being overly sensitive.  If a person is going use words for ANY purpose, then they should be responsible for understanding what they mean.  No excuses.

Yep, you are right - I should have realized that I am adressing much wider audience than usually and that certain words can have different meaning in different countries. The thing is that we use this word in our country in a different meaning that it is used in yours. As I said - it had nothing to do with the race and if I knew that it could be misunderstood, I would have not used it. (Sorry for mistakes in my english).

Jesus Christ. People like you make the world turn in to absolute shit.

Now, go have a cookie and think about what you can do to make this a better planet.

Could it be that he learned the expression from an American rap video or rap song in a radio? That word seems to be widely used in those.

Actually, I had my tailor take in the sides.  I wanted the jacket to have a little neopolitan tug (if that's the correct term), and I thought it would be fine considering my slim build and relatively young age.  I've never liked shapeless jackets, but maybe I'll have to reconsider this one.  Thanks for the input.

post #19035 of 78723

Thank for all of the comments people.  I'm not going to labour any point, simply because for some of you, it's a lost cause. But I will try and simplify it for any who's interested.

 

@SlimJohny, I am glad that you attempted to understand what I have written to you and I appreciate that sometimes words or phrases are used that we don't necessarily know the origins of.  So as far as I'm concerned, there's no issue, other than what I've highlighted.

 

For the rest who chose to interpret what I've written as some sort of "Politically Correct" appeal, then go ahead and continue to think that.

 

For any who's truly interested in understanding what I've written then, on a forum such as this, all that members have their disposal are pictures and words.  If you attempting to communicate a point to a collection of relatively unknown people then the onus should upon you to use language to make your point. 

 

If your point is to impart knowledge, then do so.  If it's to offend then rock on. 

 

However, I do not accept that people should not make the effort to vet what comes out of their mouths (or fingers).

 

That is basically the problem that we find with modern man.  Making excuses for everything.

 

Most of you don't know me, nor do I know some of you, so try not to make too many assumptions about me. I'll try to do the same for you.

 

Clint
