So where do the pieces in today's outfit fall on the F. Corbera Continuum? (I'm especially curious about the shoes because, although they are heavily brogued, they're still bals, not bluchers.)

Maybe a more earth toned tie would have put this into the "country" zone but I like the colors all the same.

I think that if the predominant pieces (jacket, trousers) were browns/tans as opposed to greys it would read more 'country', but I only say that considering that you are trying to get as far to that side of the continuum as you can today. I think what you're wearing looks pretty good regardless of the continuum.

Not feeling the tie. Something red or brown, perhaps?

Awesome look! What kind of fabric is the suit made of? Also loving the tie, although I'm not a fan of orange, in general.

I need your help. Please- a young guy with a limited wardrobe. 

 

And I do know that's a poor imitation of a three-piece. Dad had it for his tuxedo (yes, I know), and while I was able to point out his errors, I am in need of more professional assistance.

You know you're a man of prominence when your nightmares consist of men with middling taste in clothing.

Sportcoat is sky blue, and the pants are a dark brown. Adjust monitor accordingly. (Nice coat, BTW).


Hey, my monitor's calibrated. Don't blame another workman's tools. tongue.gif

It is of interest indeed, very nice overcoat. Who makes it?
 

 


RLPL. A few years or so old now, but heavy enough that it only really gets worn when it gets really cold.

Must be nice to be able to experiment so freely.

AC units take photos these days? They really are putting cameras into every electronic device these days... wink.gif

Nice. It'd be interesting to see a full-length snap or two at some point, just to see how it all comes together.

That's a serious colour shift; comes across as a (rather nice actually) olive green on my screen.

 

The photo angle is a bit dodgy too, what with the Freudian chair leg placement... laugh.gif

They are impossible to obtain. What does this mean for us? Doom?

Doom? Look on the positive side. They are impossible to obtain, perhaps, but it is easy to pay for them. In advance.

Mr. Dot Guy- you are well known, are you not? Could I have your opinion?
