Banana Republic loafer socks are fine in, say, low cut Chucks, but they still show when I wear them with actual loafers (so I don't). Who can suggest something lower? (I've seen praise for Falke, but can't tell if they are actually lower.)

there's the mall-based shoe store Journeys. they carry God-awful "shoes" and sneaks for the kids but they do have invisible socks for loafers. I think I got a pack w/ 4 or 5 pairs for about $10.

I was a little unwell and was engaged with the temperature, so today was a relief unplanned exercise. Usually I do squat to parallel.nod%5B1%5D.gif

First time posting in this thread so plz be gentle ;). These are my newly bought items and I just threw them on altogether so I don't think they went very well. Suggestion on which blazer color would go with the pants? Belt/no belt?

And my apology for the messy room :).

Well Blazer is too short and tight and the sleeves are too long
undone the first button of your shirt if you don't wear a tie and I wouldn't wear that kind of shirt with a blazer (I hate short sleeves)

As am I (for the most part).  Injury rates are high because of a bunch of trainers who have no idea what proper form is instructing random soccer moms to do olympic and or heavy compound lifts.

I actually thought the blazer was long and was even planning to have it shortened :). The waist of the blazer has already been let out; the tailor wanted to let out more but I was afraid that it would look too boxy - Now I guess I'll have to visit the tailor again for him to say "I told you so!". As for the sleeves, I thought you're not supposed to show shirt sleeves for blazers? That's why I decided to keep the blazer sleeves like that instead of shortening them. So I should shorten them now then?

 

I on the contrary love short sleeves even though wearing them makes me look like a Mormon missonary; they are so much more comfortable. Will undone the first button though; I was just testing if it's comfortable to button up.

It's not the right cut. should try to sell it instead of more tailoring. shirt is too tight too.

Hey Victor, how are ya, mate! smile.gif

Personally, I think you have a keen sense of style, and it shows in your posts. You're obviously well versed in the art of interplaying colour, texture and pattern so I won't bore you with those.

All that keeps your ensembles from greatness, imo, is coherence. To illustrate with your recent post, you have four exquisite casual elements - a suit with patch pockets, a knit tie, a linen PS and loafers - and one equally exquisite, BUT citified element - a white shirt with a full cutaway collar. This mis-match (casual vs citified) is what throws off the overall entire look and prevents full harmony.

If instead you were to go with a white button-down or a blue-checked or striped shirt, all of which are casual in nature, it would work a lot better as the look is now harmoniously casual.

OTOH, you could keep the white shirt and go completely 'city' with a navy suit that has flapped and welted hip pockets, the same linen PS, a silver glen-check (like the one you wore with your brown suit) and black balmorals. This would also work very well.

Am I echoing what Vox has said time and again? Yes. This is because his 'coherence over discordance' philosophy is something I too discovered along the path of my own sartorial experimentation. Reading his treatise just confirmed what I'd already suspected but could never pin down. IMO, it is the most useful piece ever posted on SF.

I believe that once you understand the tricks of navigating betweent the city and casual/country continuum, your 'fits' will be absolutely impeccable. Why? Because you have three advantages over most of us here:

1) Access to a good tailor - this means you can have your suits, jackets, shirts and pants made in virtually any configuration.
2) The aforementioned sense of style; and
3) Enough accessories to complete any look you're going for along the whole city to casual/country continuum.

Hope this helps, Tovarisch. smile.gif

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

The blazer seems to be too tight in the chest - the lapels are bowing out. Vox posted a nice drawing on typical signs of wrong fit (linked through Put This On, the original post is not accessible any more - http://putthison.com/post/30251849380/a-useful-guide-voxsart-learn-your-basics - see the bottom right picture).

 

Patterned trousers are generally very tough to pull off, since they draw attention from your face to your legs. I am not sure about the ones you have (I will let others decide whether they are burn-able :) ), but if you like wearing patterned trousers and want to get some inspiration on wearing them right, check this thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/293534/in-praise-but-also-suspicion-of-patterned-pants
