HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2686post #40277 of 7871711/27/12 at 8:16ampost #40278 of 7871711/27/12 at 8:35ampost #40279 of 7871711/27/12 at 8:43amI think that a suit like that will only work with a solid (maybe white) shirt.
I would likely choose black shoes (or at least a darker shade of brown.)
Could really use a tie and a pocket square.Quote:Originally Posted by in stitches

cool. ill tell him you said so.Quote:

Stitchy, I like the fabric on your bro's suit. It's bold, but bold can be good. Not crazy about the fit.
- Looks like the back rise on the pants is too long, needs to be cleaned up. I think less taper to the cuff would be better too, proportionally. More on that below.
- Hard to tell much about the jacket fit with that stance. However, just going off what I see:
- Shoulder looks kinda extended, borderline too wide. If that's a deliberate style choice (which is fine) I think there needs to be balance below, i.e., not such skinny tapered pants.
- Collar seems to be sitting low and away from the neckline. With that and the way the lower front is pulling up and away, I smell a front-to-back balance problem.
- He may have a low right shoulder that wasn't corrected for, resulting in the wrinkles on that side of the vest
- Did he just choose not to button up the vest all the way, or is it too tight for him to do so?
lol, you sound like me when i talk to him. thanks for putting it into words.
he thinks the shoulders are fine, i told him i disagree, they extend well past his actual shoulders. he intentionally pushes his chest out and his jacket back, causing that gap you refer to, and he intentionally leaves a few buttons open on the vest, that is his spreez/swag. he is more #menswear, than #tailored clothing.
also, i really think the guy he uses is a weak sauce bespoke maker. it always seems off to me when i see his work. but, he likes it, and for the vast majority of people that see him, ho looks like a stylin dude.
i always enjoy/want to pull my hair out, when we talk about style.Quote:Originally Posted by aravenel
I get the exact same thing with my brother. Won't listen to me that stuff is too tight, or that his first couple of suits shouldn't be loud patterns or niche fabrics.
Anyways, since I'm guessing based on this that your brother isn't going to change his ways overnight, at the least try to get him to wear a solid, sober shirt with that suit, might tone it down a bit.
And yeah, button up one more button of that vest
lolz, good luck getting him into a solid shirt. ill try.
thanks, guys!post #40282 of 7871711/27/12 at 8:51ampost #40283 of 7871711/27/12 at 8:53ampost #40284 of 7871711/27/12 at 8:55ampost #40285 of 7871711/27/12 at 8:59ampost #40286 of 7871711/27/12 at 9:13ampost #40287 of 7871711/27/12 at 9:23ampost #40288 of 7871711/27/12 at 9:36ampost #40289 of 7871711/27/12 at 9:39ampost #40290 of 7871711/27/12 at 9:42am
