HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2693  

post #40381 of 78721

I like everything individually; they kind of clash together, though. 

This same outfit, sans the sweater, and as you said, a white square would be very cool, imo.

A higher rise would help lengthen a shorter guy, as long as there is relative proportion to his physique. If said subject has a short torso, he might want to stay away from a high waist (but that is true of all folks with a short torso).

 

A high waist on an overweight man is a bit more tricky. I suppose it could work if attempted with a dark trouser and and full leg paired with a chunky shoe to anchor the body. It could also be a disaster if a light color trouser is worn which might draw attention to the lower abdomen area (isn't that called a fumpa?).

 

I think 12' is the perfect rise. High but not to high! Epaulet's trousers are a must : - )

 

Good luck!

I hope when I come back here tonight there is more talk of pant rise.

Do crotchless pants have a rise?

it's a miracle that you are not buttoning the bottom button on your jackets because clearly, there is a button and a button hole, why wouldn't you button it then? it's so comfortable.

why dont you go eat some poisonous mushrooms or something.


also, see below.

What could a reasonable person want to adjust when it comes to trousers?
You can only really want the crotch low enough that it doesn't cramp your boys. Once you satisfy that condition, it gets harder to walk, not more comfortable. Now when you look at the Sartorialist or any non-Michael Alden photo from Pitti, you see that some guys even relax the no-moosenuckle condition. And like Sugarbutch said, dropcrotch is only for streetwear. But on classical stuff, difference in crotch room is measured in centimeters.
You could, however, want trousers that came a little further up your waist. If you wanted to wear a vest, for instance, and didn't want you waistband showing from underneath it. I'm with you - I prefer my pants to sit at one particular spot on my waist. For me - a low rise (i.e. a position right on my hips).
So crotch room is static but how far up your waist the pants come is variable. It's ambiguous from the measurements but that's how they does it.
Crotch room is determined by inseam length relative to the length of your legs. Rise is determined by outseam length relative to inseam length.

upon waking this morning, i have come to the realization, that i must have been high off my ass last night. no idea what i was going on about. i was making no sense at all. thanks for indulging my stupidity.

Solid green shirts probably don't have a reason to exist. But if they did, and if that shade were a little less... not appealing... (which it might be since you said the color was wonky in the photo), it would be an Easter or summer shirt. The sort of thing you wear with a blazer or cotton suit.

It doesn't go with a dark madder tie, even if the tie itself were less unattractive. And it doesn't go with tweed.

I love covert twill for trousers though.

See? That wasn't so hard, was it? biggrin.gif

It's not my favorite shirt, so I won't defend it too much. The categorical statement that it doesn't go with tweed does strike me as an overstatement, though.

I will not have the tie disparaged, sir. Handbags at dawn!

could not get a fit pic i was happy with, today, so this will have to suffice.

also, i think i have to let down my right jacket sleeve a tad, and the shirt is new and the sleeve a little long, need to fix that too.

i await "rise" comments

I think they look great and flattering, but most people would think they look even more old-mannish than the same pants on a thin dude.

 

What I really hate are high rise flat fronts on a bigger man, no matter how well cut! Front arse is not a good look...

Awesome stitchy! However, I think by letting the sunlight hit you directly in the front we might get a better representation about the fit, just my $0.02. Of course, I love the shoes, but I would like them even better with a bit more polish on the toes.

my college room mate went into genetic anthropology but I doubt that even she could explain the apparent evolutionary gap that seems to be existent between the two of us. maybe you are the missing desideratum linking us to other great apes.
