HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2746  

post #41176 of 78723

Thanks!

 

Frankie22, the leg opening on these is 9". I have a pair of grey flannels that are exactly 0.5" smaller at the bottom, but somehow I find that the wider the trousers, the more flattering they look. I think it's all about proportion- the wider the hips, the wider the bottoms need to be. I need to get the cuffs properly pressed though (made them myself) so they drape better over the shoe.

 

I had a MTM pair made with more aggresively tapered knees, and the result is awful. Add double forward pleats (my mistake, I should have asked for a single reverse pleat) and they kinda look like a less exaggerated version of this:

 

 

So, from now on, gangster pants for me lol8[1].gif

I really like the occasional hard three. There is something a little more clean cut about them than a 2 or 3roll2. I wish I saw more of them on WAYWRN, especially in odd jackets, to draw inspiration from. A few months back, Kappelan posted a brilliant example (or...er...it may have been Kaplan). The purchase of that jacket was a direct result from that picture.

You've (rightly) had a lot of stick for some of your outfits, but I rather like this one as a somewhat decadent night-out look. It has the right blend of slickness and louchness for that sort of setting. Definitely an evening look, for a particular kind of night out, but it would be very good in that sort of setting.

I like true 3B jackets (my own bespoke suits tend to be true 3B) but IMO the buttons could do with all being ever so slightly lower (maybe about 0.5"-1" down on each). It's still fine, and the outfit is well put-together but I think would work even better with slightly lower buttons. The jacket's pattern/colour looks very nice indeed.

Interesting. So, what does that mean? Does it look/feel different?

 

 

 

Start of a new week but didn't have much to do today. I don't think the dark shirt will go down well here, but hey-ho... it's not a denim weave, by the way, I think it's an oxford weave, but quite a dense one.

Thanks. Well the slippers I just wear inside since it's so cold :)

Owen Meany, you seem to have a long neck and could probably profit from a higher collar.
Nevertheless I like your outfit.

EDIT: Just had a second look and the collar band already seems to be pretty tall.
That is one hell of a long neck wink.gif

Yeah, fuller pants. After trying more tapered dress pants as suggested here, the result was a trainwreck, probably cause my hips are wider than most folks think. These are way more flattering IMO.

I like the fuller cut of the trousers, but the tie and PS patterns are too similar in scale for my taste, possibly also slightly too warm in palette as well.

Looking good, Señor Crust. Give my regards to Tits.

The hard three is tough to pull off. They frequently are too reminiscent of an overcoat to my eye. If you like, though, this seems a pretty good example of the breed.

Like the Sheep, I am also paying to the foo.gif with a cream silk in my pocket today.
