HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2420

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.

    "Nice PS. Yes, slimmer trousers will enhance your finely tailored jacket."

 

Thanks. Yeah, I fully agree. It's just too damn hard to find RTW dress trousers with both a high rise and a slimmer cut around here (brick and mortar stores, where I can actually try on the pants; ordering on the net is risky and I'm not rich). These I wore today are old and back then I used to buy trousers with too short of an inseam, so can't make cuffs now. I was trying not to go the MTM route with trousers yet, as they are very sensitive to weight loss, but that might be my only option... I've had more luck finding slimmer chinos, I can live with a shorter rise on those smile.gif

It is from a spanish department store. The fabric is very nice but the jacket is fused shog[1].gif

x-post from good taste thread and actually my first post in this WAYWRN thread. Don't have a full body shot, but this is the most that I've gotten dressed up in a while so I wanted to snap a pic. I really liked the way the collar looks in the pic, and based on this I will probably never wear another collar stay again.

Apologies for the late afternoon shade.

It looks heavier than it is. The fabric is a fairly open weave, and the jacket is self-lined only on the fronts and shoulders. You can actually see light through the single layer of fabric.

I like this, TB. I do think that the solid PS looks a little lifeless, though. Maybe something reads as solid from a few feet away, but has some pattern, would liven things up.

Ironically, this is an RTW jacket from Herringbone Sydney. It's the Osaka Model, which Ethandesu developed and refined based on the Ring Jacket Model 184, hence the lovely Southern Italy meets modern Japan sort of look. Sadly, it is a bit too long and since being purchased by Van Laack, the Osaka seems to be slowly disappearing from the shelves. ffffuuuu.gif
