Because you have a larger than average head (or at least compared to your shoulders), I'd avoid such narrow fits. Not a fan of that shirt's collar. I did like the sweater and jacket combination on the sleeve, but other more conservative members might feel otherwise.

 

[EDIT] Or maybe the jacket's too tight, which is making the proportions seem a bit off.

More vintage: Knickers from the 40´s with a jacket from the 70´s and a waist coat from last season. (New knitwear)

How often do you have to make repairs to your recent vintage purchases?

No full body shot today...

I've only spent a short amount of time here and so far only a couple other members have made me feel at all welcome; mostly I have felt that people do not want me here.  If there is something I have done to upset people please tell me, and I will refrain from posting anything to cause a problem.  If it is simply my style you have an issue with, that's fine, you are entitled to your opinion and we will agree to disagree.

 

Ha! If I posted some pics of what I've been wearing I probably would've been hung out to dry here. The thing is though...several ladies have come up to me and told me I looked great and I believe they were sincere. Keep posting pics if what you want is the other forum member's opinions though.

I thought we're supposed to be critiquing and helping others out on their fit of clothes

I don't get how the width of the shoulders doesn't match the outfit, what could be a solution?

Thanks for your comment.

I'm a big fan but I think POW - exploded gingham is a bridge too far.

Love that shirt / tie combo though.

I think my objection is that the big, sky glue gingham is summery for me and the large-scale POW is fall / winter.

Not so much repair. I mostly by clothes that do not need to be repaired. I have only repaired a few exceptions - suits so extraordinary that I coludn´t resist them.

But I have spent some money at my tailor adjusting the length of the arms or legs. Some jackets and trousers have also been adjusted in width. Easy adjustments (a small change in waist or length of trousers) and moving buttons I do myself, or I ask my wife to help me.

Then you must add the cost for dry clean of course.

Wish I could wear a really splendid tweed or PoW, cf. SB-king-of-tweed, Luftvier, TTO and many others.  But it's just too warm here normally.  

 

Anyway, it doesn't stop me wearing a three piece a lot of the time regardless: an outside event this evening, still about 33C.  Soft, light-wearing linen is my solution.  Sorry for the crappy pics; artificial light in my office is weak and daylight is long gone.  Also, being linen, I'm a little crumpled after a few hours out and about.

 

The "full robo", as per SF specification...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Look!  No weird socks today.
