Very nice tie, great points on the collar, deets?

You know, I've seen two of them lately and it was bugging the shit out of me that I couldn't figure out what the fuck was wrong with them. Its surprising to me that they'd go away from the classic design like that just to save $1 per jacket.

I have one I purchased at a navy surplus with seven buttons in the same positions. It's definitely not current spec as you'll see by the tag and the chalked in last name of the original wearer.



Caveat: Unless a button, unbeknownst to me, in the course of the coat's life, has popped off.

Jacket looks to be to small. A spread collar would help. Socks and square clash, imo.

Looking great, Kai!

kai - i really like the color combos, but the fit/pitch of the jacket looks a bit off. idk, maybe just your stance. anyhow, happy holiday, hope you enjoyed.
post #40196 of 78717
Hello kai, I like the colors as well, especially your choice of tie for the holiday. Nice! I think the lower buttoning point serves well to lengthen your frame, but to my eye if that buttoning point was an inch higher, the jacket would appear more balanced IMHO.

Nice casual outfit. I cannot say anything about the fit except that the trousers fit you round the waist. However i can say something about the accessories.

 

Belt: Put it through the loop. Twisted under like that makes it look as if it is too long for you and you borrowed it from your father.

 

Bracelet: Lose it, lowers the tone of your whole being.  Looks like a piece of gold plated metal with LV stamped on it with a plastic strap round your wrist. Reminds me of those people (lemmings: ones that follow all the others over the cliff) that have LV stamped on their suitcases and everywhere else they can. They would probably even have LV stamped on their foreheads if they could. These LV people somehow think it makes them look rich and better than anyone else, but it does not, it really just looks cheap and crass.

 

Watch: Very good looking, all angular and masculine, yes. You should really wear it on the left wrist though. It is designed with the winder in such a way that if it were worn on the left wrist, the winder is in the correct position for manipulation with the right hand, presuming you are right handed. I have never seen a left handed watch.

 

Wedding ring: Cool.
