HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2453  

post #36781 of 78722

I have this suit, MTM from some awful cheap Chinese operation.  I've had it for ages, been adjusted at least two or three times and is still not right.  But I can't bring myself to get rid of it, as perversely, the fabric was surprisingly pleasing.  Apart from the lesson learned - only deal with a tailor you can physically assault if necessary - it still gives me a strange mix of pleasure on one hand, and frustration on the other.  Anyway, good enough for the barbarians I'm dealing with today, and offset by my favourite tie and proper shoes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

P.S. I do not, of course, condone the physical assault of one's tailor, or anyone else.  But a stern expression is sometimes called for.

Here's a close up picture of the fabric, a classic nailhead pattern in white/black.

Stylish as always.  What shoes?

Black cap-toes from Church. I think the model is Consul.

Love the fabric - really strong without being gaudy.  Re. shoes, can't fault the classics!  I have a monk on the same last; lovely shoes I think.

"Great looking tie? Details?"

 

Jean-Louis Scherrer; a gift. It's needed re-sewing; not the best-made.  But I do love the colour and pattern.

Thank you. Tab collars are an occasional indulgence of mine.

It is the SF prescribed double four-in-hand, which, due to the construction of Charvet ties, makes a long, narrow knot which I like with a tab-collared shirt.

Ho-hum fit today. I tried a half-smile but it makes me look a little sinister...

 

 

Deets: jacket is vintage late 50s or early 60s from Westchester, the knitted bi-colour grey wool tie is of a similar age (from Germany), basic J-Crew lavender gingham shirt and blue wool vest, plus early 60s vintage navy wool trousers (really sharp in real life) and C&J dark brown monks.

I messed around with the saturation and contrast on the robo-pose (spoilered below) so that the trousers didn't disappear entirely into the black filing cabinet behind me, and now you can tell they are blue, but it's also made everything else look much lighter than it really is, shoes in particular. Colours and textures are much more accurate in the first pic.

 

Spoiler: poor quality not quite robo-pose (Click to show)

There are potentials, do you located in UK?

"I like the outfit itself, but those are some HUGE sleeves. Have you considered having them slimmed?"

 

I think it's partly just the angle and the way the fabric has shifted as I rushed backwards to get the shot taken. They don't seem that HUGE in real life. However, I am now feeling paranoid about my enormous sleeves! patch[1].gif I will see what someone says who can see them for real...

Fall has arrived, time to bring out my first, but definitely not last, tweed.





The pants are navy, but the distortion makes them look a bit purplish.

You should see me when I try a proper smile for the camera. It's very disturbing...
