HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2286  

post #34276 of 78722

I work for Hospice as a Chaplain & a Marketer. So I'm in and out of professional offices daily, but I also do visitations with families.

 

My job calls for a more conservative look, but I wish I could get away with a more vintage southern look, I really dig the Billy Reid kind of style.

Then you should keep it to navy and grey. Save the three-piece seersucker for relaxing on the front porch on the weekend.

Good advice. Thanks so much!

pB in Not-Navy... I like it.

Where did this rumor start that I don't wear anything except navy? I have an equal amount of each.
post #34282 of 78722

forgive me. I have only been around for 6 months. It's my first time seeing you in something that isn't navy

post #34283 of 78722
No worries. smile.gif A lot of people have said it.

pb your suit seems abit fuller than most in sf. Are my eyes playing tricks on me or is that what your prefer?

post #34285 of 78722
patrickB - Nice stuff! I'm guessing some lighter 8-9oz fabric? due to the creasing on the mid-upper part of the arms. Really like the color and texture/pattern of the tie, details?
As mentioned in the Whnays thread perhaps a ligh blue shirt would have been a better choice, just nit-picking though:)

pb, for the record i just said that bc i really liked the outfit and wanted the opinions of some of those guys in the whnay thread. i agree with you and manton, i like white squares and white shirts.

both your last outfits have been great, some of the best in the thread recently.

Yes, I prefer a drapy chest and modest waist supression with a fuller british trouser. I think I am going to go even fuller on some of my next commissions with a higher waist and *gasp* forward pleats.

This is actually the next step up, 10oz fresco I believe, you can ask member forex, he ordered it for me with a bunch of his own stuff. It is strange though, my 8-9oz fresco in navy that is floating on here somewhere seems to hold a better crease and not wrinkle as much. Very counterintuitive.

Thanks a lot, Omar.

the full cut seems to work on you pB. You are quite skinny but carry that silhouette well. Would you say this style decision comes from your fear of wrinkles and odd lines?

post #34290 of 78722
Skinny! Ah! You're too kind, I am anything but. I would say I am average, but certainly not "skinny". I have been a suit wearer for a while now, and while I used to be about 30lbs skinnier I did the whole skinny suit thing and while I enjoyed it at the time I began to feel immature in it. I think getting a bit older, as well as learning about and appreciating the world of tailoring I began to see the benefits not only in appearance, but in comfort as well as how you are perceived. All in all, I feel that it looks more elegant and timeless.

I have always preferred a more monochrome color palate, which hasn't changed much over the years so I like to express myself in textures and silhouettes.

I think I can carry the fuller cut, because I am on the tall side, 6' 2". But then again I feel that some of the better dressers on this forum don't err on the side of tight, much the opposite. Many think looking good, or good tailoring is about how close one can get cloth to their bodies without causing ripples. This is a very amateur way to approach tailoring.
