Well he certainly knows a thing or two (probably more than I do) but I don't like his style nor taste. Way too big tie knots, white shirt mixed with solid ties in any colour, and clip-on suspenders... not my cup of tea.
it's not just that you wore a belt with a vest, no you tucked your vest in...
of course, the reason being that you clearly were the best dressed person and not because of the novelty
Short shirt sleeves with oversized double cuffs are messing with jacket sleeves. Need to order Tyrwhitt shirts with half an inch extra length and barrel cuffs from now on...
This jacket has been shortened and taken in at the shoulders. Still a bit tight at the hips, but I'm working on that
^ Size looks fine, I like the drape it creates in the chest. Pockets seem already too low to shorten the jacket, but maybe sleeves can be shortened from the top? For such a valuable piece you'd need a really trustworthy tailor, though.
Where do you get your shirts made? Your collars are great...
This picture definitely represents an idea of success to most - me included! Should have gone with braces, though ("suspenders"), and in answer to your previous question, I'd say a waiscoat alone is always wrong, unless you're a waiter, or indeed a tailor - with your jacket hanging nearby. The matching trews definitely take away the waiter look, but even if you're really in the mood for novelty, I'd still have gone with a jacket - maybe a cream DJ/smoking jacket, and complete the "in-your-face" but with a bit of dilution for that tartan. Anyway, 10/10 for bravery - there's always something to be said for being yourself.
Haha....dictionary definition of "literally" is definitely going to change in the next few years; but I'm in the reactionaries' camp right next to you, sir! That tartan might have looked like mass murder, but I doubt that any blood was shed!
Mr Pingson, you are a shining light. My attachment to a three-piece is obvious, but this is splendid. All I'd say is, pocket square aside (a dandification anyway; matter of mood), perhaps you are selling this fine suit short with the suede shoes? It might be a heavier, country-style fabric, but still, I think your excellent Tricker's half brogues might have been a more fitting companion. I'm nit-picking though - great look.
This must be the "tell-it-like-it-is" for which the public has been agitating - harsh but not wrong!
