Let us give thanks to Albert Hal for so clearly defining the limit of peacockery.

sorry. frown.gif
also, you look like michael chiklis from the shield. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif


I agree about less break on the trousers.


I think the shirt and pocket square are just fine (if it were a business event, I would say a white, straight-fold would be better...but what he has is very nice for evening).

Sorry sir, but I really don't like that tie at all.

You are really rocking that take-no-prisoners three-piece though. I bet you stopped traffic in it last night.

I do understand your wife...

You seem to be making your way into a classic haberdashery sort of style. It's very unique for these times, and it almost always results from someone working (or being raised) in a traditional menswear retail environment. As Bill has stated in the past, % is the best example of a honed haberdashery style. Bits and pieces from here and there that might stick out at times or initially mark a fit as awkward, but, at the end of the day, somehow inconsistencies are eclipsed by the sum of the whole. I hope you will fully commit to continuing to learn and I'm intrigued to see where you go from here.
I think it needs to be remembered that he works in retail. All menswear retailers (from Sid Mashburn all the way down to Men's Warehouse) have a certain style or tone that they like their employees to adhere to. Having seen what others in his shop dress like, I think SS fits into his shop's environment quite nicely. One of the most underrated aspects of style is appropriateness and awareness of one's surroundings. While his looks aren't meant for the boardroom, they accomplish the goal in mind when put together.

Obviously I have much to learn, as learning is always an evolving process. I enjoy posting here and getting constructive criticism, I always want to tweak things here and there while at the same time maintaining a little of my own style. With that being said I'd never wear the previous fit (or the majority) of my fits to a board meeting. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Thanks for the criticism and help.

I post here to learn, what happened to being constructive?

NOBD: The simplicity and consistency of your clothing is killer.

Here is a taste of what I wore to work this past Friday:

Yes. Watch is Breguet; suit is bespoke (Raphael); shoes are bespoke (Vass); tie is Carlo Franco; pocket square is Pink; shirt Jos A Bank; cufflinks vintage sterling guilloche enamel.

This begs the question... If Albert Hal can't wear it, who can?
post #37483 of 78722
Actually, he can wear it. He chooses for other reasons not to.

This is the first post that I have seen of yours, so I'm not sure if someone has commented to this effect already, but I really love your mix of traditional, respectable clothing and indecorous tattoo placement. I think that sort of dichotomy has a lot of potential from an aesthetic standpoint, and you take full advantage of that and do it well. Obviously, the majority of the people on this forum are not in any social position to attempt that look (myself included), and some may still be opposed to it, but I think if you have already staked your claim on your patch of society, you have managed to do it while looking your best. 

 

On a somewhat unrelated note, are you familiar with the band Bayside? Maybe it's just the neck tattoos, but you remind me of the singer, Anthony Raneri.

The watch chain has a compass attached at one end (as was found among my late father's effects after his death in 2004), and a modern replacement pocket watch on the other (a present from my current partner). The chain originally had a small gilded penknife attached, but unwise packing got it confiscated by the TSA in 2005 - grrrrr.
