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!!

Or that...true true.  Dress down the shirt, or upgrade the trousers...cool.

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.

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.

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.

Phone vs grubby mirror vs 3-button blue linen.  I think these trousers are still a touch too long and too wide, like the other two linen suits, although looks better with the turn-up somehow?

I see your shoe laces are very matchy matchy  shog[1].gif   with your jacket lapel buttonhole stitching today mimo, also please convert to reef knots in the shoe laces, granny knots are unbecoming a gent of your stature  fing02[1].gif  . You will know you have reef knots when your bows naturally lay across your shoes and not forward / backward as they are in this pic.

thankfully mimo at least has the courtesy of warning people in advance about his personality by dressing accordingly. loud and obnoxious.

I think the trousers are too long, but I think the width looks good. I think if they didn't bag as much they would drape better and look cleaner. The jacket looks slightly snug, maybe letting out the sides a bit could help. In the future I think a larger chest size woulld help the overall shape with tailoring. I would also opt for slightly wider lapels and maybe a 2 button, or a 3 hard roll 2.

Argh! "Matchy-Matchy" - one of the seven deadly SF sins!  They're different colours actually; the stitching's quite purple, the laces more burgundy.  But I get what you mean.  Anyway, they're far enough apart in real life and I skipped the raspberry socks today for fear of just that!  That thing about shoelaces though: honestly, it had never occurred to me - thank you.  I kind of like the way they sit diagonally across my shoes, especially when they're a contrast colour.  But I'll definitely try is the other way around like you said, especially when I'm a little more formal.  Thanks for the tip, seriously. fistbump.gif

Yeah, yeah, like you know a thing about me.  I'm a stranger on the internet dude, really...why?  Anyway, I prefer "socially confident"; let's have lunch and you can judge for yourself.  "Est index animi"?  Maybe.  Contradictions are interesting.  Big kiss x

Re. trousers, I think you might be right, the width is definitely exaggerated when they're a bit long.  The jacket's quite a comfortable fit actually, on all three of these, but you have a point on the short, narrow lapel, it does kind of sit up and give that effect.  The other two suits from this set are two buttons; just wanted to try something different with this one.  Thanks.

Ping, you look nice. I just think the jacket is slightly snug (could just be the sweater?), and trousers too long and could use a good press.

And that's cool. It's got nothing to do with price BTW - I actually think JCrew stuff is rather overpriced for what it is and having tried and sent back a couple of pairs of their trousers, I think they are (perhaps were) rather disappointing - so I was just surprised that you wear them when you have access to a seemingly endless supply of anything you want whatever the price! It's more that, personally, I don't like think they go particularly well with the outfits you've been wearing them in compared to other choices you've made in the recent past - and this BTW is a really minor point, because you still look many times better than almost anyone else on here.

Thanks for the comments, they are spot on. The apparent snuggness (is that even a word?) of the jacket is partly due to me having my hand in the pocket (the jacket in unvented which exaggerates the pulling) and partly due to the sweater. Trousers have a tendency to drop from my waist to my hip and hence look too long (I probably should spend more time in the gym shog[1].gif ). Alternatively, I really should stop wearing belts withs suits and switch to braces instead, which would alleviate those problems.

Felt it time to dust off the Official Style Forum Parker Stripe...

I don't like the square with that tie. Also, horizontal stripes are only good for knit ties, that looks casual enough, I guess.
