read here, brah.
What does that have to do with me?post #38193 of 7871710/23/12 at 8:04pmQuote:Originally Posted by mimo
I have two issues with this, albeit petty ones: firstly, the tie and the PS, by coincidence, seem very close in shade, and at first glance they appear to match. Maybe the colours are less matching in real life. I cannot believe the Spoo would ever commit the sin of "matchy matchy", even if in a hurry.
But the second is the shirt. The jacket is soft and textured, the trousers are throwaway chinos, and the shoes informal suede. But the shirt, partly with the stripe but mainly with that spread collar, seems way too formal for the outfit. It's stiff, City, business-y to me. I think maybe either something softer/longer in the collar, or even a button-down, would have worked this constructed-casual thing a bit more consistently. And a simple square check or even just an oxford weave, instead of the stripe.
I wish I could see the perfume that's mentioned. That would probably fix it.
Can I get a sock check on Mimo?
Sounds like he knows too much to have joined in 8/12.post #38194 of 7871710/23/12 at 8:16pm
i was saying, as i said before, that your outfit looked great, when looking at it by human standards. not even just normal human standards, even by pretty rigid critiquing. now, was there still some truth to the nitpicks? maybe. and that is where you got dappered!!!post #38195 of 7871710/23/12 at 8:19pmQuote:

Spoo.. I have never even heard of half the brand names you wearing Bud, but you look great, yeah as far as I am concerned, Great look and huge effort, right down to your perfectly ironed "throwaway" chino's and your matchy matchy reef knotted shoe laces. Pity you couldn't get your tie and PS to match as well eh!
Wanna talk about people who live in glass houses that throw stones. Maybe another day!!post #38204 of 7871710/24/12 at 2:55amQuote:Originally Posted by Johnboy

Or that...true true. Dress down the shirt, or upgrade the trousers...cool.Quote:Originally Posted by SpooPoker
Youre both right. The pants weren't the right call with the top. The shirt was a liiiiitttle dressier than it should have been, but the cloth isnt superfine, its a little textured, so its passable I think.
As far as my recent "fascination" with J Crew pants, Flying Monkey - they look awesome on me. Ive got 2 Pantas and a bunch of Kent Wangs, Cornelianis etc in alteration, so until my other $1800 of pants come back, my $70 J Crews will do just fine.
Hehe. I'm sure everyone here owns a pair of beige cotton twill trousers in some sort or another. And I'm sure anyone with a reasonably inquiring mind (who's bored enough to explore the links at the bottom), has also understood how SF LLC works! But anyway, Spoo, you're a hard guy to throw stones at sartorially-speaking, even if I don't like your now ubiquitous tiny chinos. Your rare moments of fallibility are reassurance to less elegant mortals like me.Quote:
Er...check away, I actually just joined to try to sell some shoes that didn't fit, and kind of got sucked in to the madness. But...I was putting my own trousers on and doing my own buttons up for a few decades beforehand, I promise. In a weird way, that's very flattering though.Quote:
But, miserable little bastard as he is, Mr Umbrella is incontrovertibly correct (and, frequently, funny). I am far from SF-approved. As my next post will no doubt demonstrate.
