HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2278  

post #34156 of 78723
I agree on the shirt collar but not on the tie knot.
Four in hand always looked like your dad, that was forced to wear a tie to work, showed you how to knot a tie so you could bag groceries at the better grocery store. Not the best grocery store mind you.

With all due respect I don't think it's really an opinion. I think it has a lot to do with balance, scale and visual aesthetics. I think if this was presented to an art professor who cared nothing about fashion they would agree on principle and probably be able to explain it a hell of a lot better than I can. But at least to my eye, point collars look terrible on men with thicker necks and round face and spread collars look terrible on guys with thin necks and long faces.

Where did you use this? Did you attend something or just a walk round in the city looking like that?

We do have a hair thread. It is pinned in health and body. It looks good though. Nice and tidy.

I attended the Del Mar Horse Races. Also about town, for afternoon tea at the local cafes, to Balboa Park, for daytime picnics.

Aha, I don't know how it is in the US, did all wear like this there or only you?

 +10000. Sometimes I see people walking around with less than perfect fits (on the loose side, but of course still acceptable) but they look so confident and comfortable in their clothes that it really doesn't matter. They look a thousand times better than a robot in a bespoke suit.

I am the only one that I know of in San Diego. When my friend from England comes to visit early next year there will be two of us. Apart from the "Morning Dress" My old Boss wears suits and fedoras daily, but he has a much more late 40's early 50's West Coast look.

What do you do, Tibor? Would you share?
post #34168 of 78723

700

 

Little better picture today. I promise I'll try to post one soon that shows the entire body.

 

Suit: Dark Grey w/ Light Grey Pinstripe - Ralph Lauren

Shirt & Tie: Roundtree & York Gold Label

 

Still sporting the '4-in-hand' knot, but I'll try out the Half Windsor!

 

Also, I really need to build my professional wardrobe... right now, I'm just hitting up Dillards & Nordstrom, but would love to hear some suggestions on places to find quality professional dress clothing. I work with Hospice, so the majority of our clients prefer a more traditional look, but I am attempting to buy slimmer cut suits, with smaller lapels and ties that match the lapel width. 

 

Any and all suggestions are appreciated.

 

Thanks again!

Good to see you posting again Tibor. Looking sharp, as always.

Yes, I worked as a Public Safety Officer for Little Italy. Then I was a maitre d'. (My old stylish Boss was the manager). Now I have no full time job. I have 3 job offers but I have not taken any yet. I think I will take a job as a Concierge at a local hotel.
