HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2419

Victor,

You might want to look into getting some Olympic shoes instead of using your regular running shoes. The Nike Romaleos II are great and will help with your form and will prevent injuries to your ankles.

Also, try to make sure you are using the correct type of bar that has at least a 10 needle point ball bearings. The bar should spin easily when you spin it. If you're just using the typical crappy bars that come in most gyms the weights will turn when you lift them and can torque your shoulders, especially on power snatches.

Pingson I think you have stepped up your game the last couple of days, lot's of improvement compared to earlier posts.
The lapel roll looks quite flat, same as I noticed on another of your 3 button jackets...Where they always shaped like that or did a dry cleaner press out the roll?

Arrived in the mail today. Excuse the shoes, rumpled legs and the mirror spots.

Does this mean you can wear your nice pants again?

I met a power snatch once. I was actually born that day.

Thanks, I think most of the "improvement" is better quality photos shog[1].gif. I think all of the jackets the last few days, except for the three-piece, are true three-button jackets which I think are meant to roll less.

It was even more powerful a few months prior. I miss you, son.

I'll take a power snatch over the clean and jerk any day.

The price of a luxery brand and the quality do not meet. We pay their advertising, not their taylors. This is a Gucci jacket. It may have cost a thousand dollars or more. I bouhgt it cheap, under a hundered dollars. The fabric is nice and expensive. But the facturing? Probably made in a low cost factory somewhere in Asia. I do not want to pay 10 times the production cost just for a certain brand. I prefere real quality, i.e. before 1965

 

Concur as I was produced before 1965 myself!

Victor, what is it with you and patch pockets?  Nice look though; love the details.  What are those shoes?

Kind of agree about the shirt, although nothing really wrong with it.  But that tie is something else!  Can't say I've ever been a bow tie man, apart from the obvious evening dress, but that one might just make it all worthwhile.  Really lovely.

Nice herringbone; watch is stylish too.

I think I should start getting slimmer pants, too.

Mr Diaz, you're looking like a bit of a stand-out around here.  Maybe you're right these trousers could be a bit narrower, but I wear mine quite loose too.  What i want to know is: where can I get that jacket?  It's stunning!

Too much?  I don't know.  Maybe that waistcoat just needs to be a softer shade, or have some other bright detail to complement it.  But there's nothing wrong with an occasional bit of eccentricity I'd say.  The only thing I'd lose is the gloves - these are too heavy; more modern serial-killer than Edwardian homage!

I do like that casual jacket, but personally, I'd take the shirt out quietly and shoot it.  Each to his own though, it works.
