HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2248  

post #33706 of 78724
Hello, first time I post pics (any technical suggestion to improve photograph presentation would be welcome, as would be constructive criticism).

I would call this my bussiness casual/smart casual. This was at the end of a hot working day, so there is some dishevellement (I have to find a more comfortable pose too, I guess).

Jacket is a slim fit, hence trousers follow pattern. I selected a skinny bow tie too. In my screen some colours are a little off, specially shirt, which seems to have bleached to white - it is a pale pink really.

Regards!

my man, i dont know where to start. im sorry to sound harsh, but these are some of the issues.

1. you jacket is pulling all over the place.

2. you seem to wearing a poly blend shirt

3. the buttons on your shirt are black

4. the whole color scheme of red, black, pink, gray and what looks like brown shoes is lacking any coherency for me

5. the bow tie looks way to tiny too me, but im not expert there

again, im sorry to sound like a jerk, but i only say this in the hope that you will take it as its meant. earnest advise given to help you improve.

cheers.

^ Listen to this guy. With regards to suggestion to improve the photograph presentation I would recommend taking photos with the camera at chest level.

Am I the only one who thinks that this gentleman's buttoning point is both too high and too tight?

The loosened tie is the real crime here (not mentioning the tie itself).

NoThreadbearer ,  you're not the only one who thinks so... This (to wear very short jacket) is a questionable fashion: very uncomfortable and rather vulgar, but common today

What? This is by no means a very short jacket.

These gents all have about three-quarter shoe coverage.

Do not confuse the whole with a part of it.

These people seem cheerful, even if their style is questionable. Different problem is that of the trouser bottom...

The rule that I mentioned is present in many books of male elegance

The real problem is buttoned too high. According to general reasoning, the fashion in recent years has resulted in too short jackets and the button has moved higher and higher. Think of Giorgio Armani and jackets with lovely '80s and look at the (painful) current.

This is an example of great natural waist buttoning... another world  (not considering the actor)

I can agree that the buttoning point is pushing it and it may not cover his rear completely, and that fashion has embraced ridiculously short jackets. What I don't agree is that the jacket in the picture is "correct"; I feel it is as ridiculous as too short.

The best advice I have found here is that it's much easier to pull lighter trousers and darker jacket than the other way around.

It's true... Barney's jacket is not too short (in my opinion it's between the regular and short), but the buttoning is not correct (too hight). There is too little space between the first (of two) button and his throat.

AMC has some really great original programming, but the movies are far too sanitized to spend this much time watching them. The 80s were great ...during the 80s.

EFV I think the tie is a tad wide and I'd go for a lighter color of pocket square, other from that a fantastic outfit!

Agree entirely.
