HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2500

"Happy birthday! You wear it well"


"enjoy your birthday."

"Love how the socks pick up the tie and suspenders. Great! Happy birthday!"

"Happy birthday; sure you'll get better service on the strength of that stripe alone!"

"Looking good!"

"Great throughout! Would've added some pink colour to get the tie to blend in more - still, great job"

"Happy birthday, crusty!"

"You will probably be the best-dressed man at Daniel...and that is saying something...Happy Birthday!"

"Happy Natal Day! Sharp "banker" stripes! Impeccably shined shoes."

"looks great! Happy Bday!"

"Happy Birthday! And if I look as good at 57, I'll be quite happy."

"happy birthday!!"

"Well done, enjoy the tasting menu"

Thanks SF (a new me)

"Happy birthday, and you look great."

"Happy B-Day? Are you comfortable with the jacket length?"

"Have a great day, upr_crust. Nice ensemble, too smile.gif"


"Happy Birthday Upr_Crust, have a great day!"

Thank you gentlemen, one and all, for the comments and birthday good wishes. For the record, the second suit that I bought from New & Lingwood was a short, not a regular, as this one was, Owen Meany, so maybe the jacket is a little long (I'm 5' 9", down from 5' 10" at my tallest). As for dinner, I made do with the regular 3-course menu at Daniel, which was quite enough food, thanks, and an excellent bottle of Vouvray. As for the suit's appearance, wearing that suit gets me a lot of attention from sales staff in every emporium on Madison or Fifth Ave., from Brooks to Barney's - a very useful thing, at times.

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.


I thank you for the very kind words.

I must admit I have only started to dress like this recently as I have more passionately started getting involved purchasing tailored artisanal clothing. I got all of my work done a few years ago when I was more involved in the music scene we had here, playing in bands etc. When it comes down to it. I always don't "see" my tattoos so to speak. I am so use to them and people around me who have them that I see past them. 

But I can see with a lot of people that that is the first thing they usually notice. I am not saying that is a bad thing, different strokes for different folks.

I am very familiar with the band Bayside, but this is the first time I have been compared to Anthony Raneri.

I understand plus-fours are quite extravagant, but I'd have picked it up for the jacket and waistcoat alone... sorry to hear that. frown.gif

That has to be the most eclectic collection of makers ever in one fit. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Thanks, its a vintage H&S from the 1970's...picked it up from GShen before Vanda.

I know a lot of people claim that navy trousers are far less versatile than one might think, and I'm starting to see that they actually have a point. For this fit, mid-grey or brown trousers would probably work as well or even better. But then again, this is nitpicking biggrin.gif (jacket is awesome though icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif )

I think the fact that this is a tweed makes it easier. I had a pair of odd navy trousers, wore them one time before having a suit finished, now i wear that much more often.

Happy belated birthday! I hope I look as good when I'm 47.

Hi all, this is the last fitting of my new jacket....

post #37496 of 78718

Not sure about the shirt (not because I know anything, just my personal preference..). Love everything else.

love it too, I would have paired this combination with a linen/cotton blend blue butcher stripe shirt instead of the checkers, though.


rare case of tasteful paisley tie.

Acknowledged pattern mess... at least it looks less busy from a distance smile.gif


BTW, just got rid of the PS.

In the interest of scientific research, I've been trying to understand the local preference for dark brown ties. I had occasion to obtain one recently, and am wearing it in the configuration shown below. Is this what all you brown tie-wearing types have been talking about?
