I actually think Mr Claghorn's is better - doesn't look like he's trying so hard. And he's wearing socks
Very, very appealing look, with or without the dog. Although that looks well-groomed too. I really do like that jacket. Quality speaks.
So very wrong, but a genuine "LOL", for which I thank you!
Bloody hell! Now we're into the Premier League. Proper white tie, smoking jacket...pretentious? Maybe. But absolutely correct, beautifully made by the look of it, and a total trump card in the style stakes. My heartfelt respect to you, Sir! Now, must see the tailor about that smoking jacket...fabric's been sitting in my drawer for weeks; time to get on with it!
Stylish as always. What shoes?
Not a fan of contrast collars personally. But anyway, retro maybe - I would say "classic". Another very dapper combo - great suit and like the PS too.
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.
What knot is that?
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.
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)
"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! I will see what someone says who can see them for real...
