Not feeling too well today but I had to come in to teach anyway. As a result today's fit is a bit meh.

 

Deets: chocolate brown tweed jacket, dark brown wool waistcoat, knitted tie (all vintage), cheap J-crew blue micro-gingham shirt. Not seen: olive/grey heringbone wool trousers and dark drown suede monks.

I have taken the trouble to edit the pic you posted to show what i mean, also I see that NYRanger has got his trousers to a fine art in terms of break (and cuff). Best is that "they" (n0n-n00bs) seem to like it long as well, or at least they don't seem to hate what NYR has done, or know what they like TBH. I somehow think the group "bashing" frenzy kinda took over and they all had a bite.. oh well.  ASPD

 

Thanks. It's just that I don't like how cuffed trousers look with a break, in fact these pants tend to ride down a little over the course of the day and I hate how that makes the bottoms look messy. The optimal solution would be slanted cuffs but these require bespoke, I think. I like more of a classic break with uncuffed trousers though.

 

I posted some pics in the tailors' thread, there you can see the pants aren't really that tapered; they have a quite classic cut, with a 8.6" leg opening, and that's how I like it smile.gif


I am fairly certain that slanted cuffs can be done by a reasonably skilled tailor. My alterations lady does all my uncuffed pants with slanted hems, however, i would assume that a slanted uncuffed hem would be simpler.

Thanks for the constructive comments guys, you seem to disagree that with short ankle bashers, it looks either as if one has grown out of them, or they shrunk in the wash, but not stylish, well not to my mind anyway.

I'm usually one of your advocates... but this by any standards is off.

Despos posted about this in one of the tailor threads. It can be done, but is difficult.

If you tell me my tie is too narrow for my lapels, I don't care.

I am more concerned about the machine stitched edges on the PS.

I think Despos said the pattern needs to be adjusted, so new pants can be done with slanted cuffs but finished pants can't be altered to have them. I could be wrong though.

I think it (3pc with short trousers and no socks) would look better if the trousers were much more tapered. I still wouldn't like the look myself, but I do think it would look more complete in itself.

ok, maybe its just me, but are we gonna change this to: WAYWRN v. chest shot only, with additional pic of shoes? Without the whole head to toe look, its hard to tell much of anything beyond that you can put together colors that don't clash horribly.

Anyway, my contribution for today, same bad picture, same bad channel.

With respect, sir, maybe that's all some people want to know.  Sure, if you want feedback on how your trousers fit or whatever, fair enough, but sometimes you might just be sharing a colour/texture combo idea, or whatever.  I guess people also have different thresholds of privacy.  The chances of my posting my face on here are slim to zero, which is probably a blessing to all.  But also, if I'm going to be pedantic (and this is the place!), then holding a phone in one hand and putting the other in your pocket doesn't help the silhouette much either!

 

Apart from that, I like your jacket.  Those are some big F-O lapels/collar spread; I don't know if I would go there, but it looks great on you.
