It was the rack that held up the hangers. It pulled right out of the wall and dropped to the floor of the closet. My pants are all buried.

Very nice colors and fit. I like it.

Its a houndstooth with an overcheck. Though with such shitty photography, one really can't tell.

Sad day. Hopefully they are not ruined.

That's part of why I said it may be a backslide. It was this or a 2 button 3 piece that I will end up wearing next week and the morning was rushed. I was worried about the color coordination this morning, but I'm glad it worked. I was thinking a lighter tie might have been better though. Since you went ahead and commented, I will go ahead and say that my entry for tomorrow is entirely based upon your suggestions.

Lufty - i think the sack coat does not align proportionally with the tapered/slim pants.

Either way it looks very nice.

These are stock BB trou and haven't been altered except for the length. I have a feeling that the angle's throwing off the photo...

Appreciate the feedback.

I used to be that cavalier about zipping my fly. Changed my mind after I damn near put an eye out.

No. We just spend so much time together that our periods have started to sync up.

Bugs the crap outta me and as you see makes an otherwise flawless outfit look stupid and the proponent seem like a pretentious tool. 'Ooh look, I'm pretending to look nonchalant by showing a detail of sloppiness even though anyone can tell I've taken a lot of time on making sure my outfit is good'

Yeah, cos those shirts that don't have buttons on the collars are so difficult to come by.

Memo to Spoo - your mojo has returned to the building.

I think my face says it all.

Faconnable SC
Alea shirt
vintage Daks silk knit
J.Crew pants
vintage Florsheim Imperials

I can only hope this day ends quickly, and without fanfare.

Considering your day, you look way fine. Sorry about your closet mishap - glad only that it wasn't the suits, and hope that nothing was damaged in the collapse.

My first foray back into WAYWRN in months. Manton's thoughts? Sufficiently C?

Very much in your retro-BB mode - an authentic sack suit. The width of the lapels makes me think that it's vintage - am I mistaken?

I very much like the suit jacket/shirt/tie together - not too fussed about the PS, but would have much preferred seeing the fit with the matching trousers.

That you are always smiling in your photos brings a humanity and warmth to them which contrasts with the sometimes surgical sterility that can be displayed here. That you are willing to post your fit each day with the uncertainty you've mentioned, having noticed things which may be imperfect ahead of time, and knowing what you may face is part of why I think I can do the same regardless of the criticisms (so far mostly constructive as well) and snark which may present itself.

Your kind words are most appreciated. As it is, living, as I have, in NYC for the last 31 years, I have a very finely tuned horse-pucky filter - I take comments as they come, but can judge (and ignore) them as needed. That being said, when I read constructive criticism here, and I look at my photos and realize that it's correct, I take action accordingly.

As for the smiles, those are just to prevent me from looking like a displeased dead fish.

Something of mine that you LIKED? It must be a sign of the oncoming Apocalypse . . .
