HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2869  

post #43021 of 78724

Today. Apologies for the blurred full-length shot, but you should be able to get the idea anyway:

For me, the size of the tie was fine, but the manner of tying made it look more obtrusive than it really is. Perhaps a tighter knot?

It's definitely a worsted.

Can you see difference between this and the Timotune pics?

It' a great difference!

I'm not here to quarrel just to explain...

 

You'd be right if I had said that the trousers were baggy, which I did not. I gave him a suggestion based on my personal preference, which is to avoid straight cut trousers, no objection about a fuller cut. I wear full trousers myself, but none of them has a straight cut.

 

An old photograph, since then my tailor removed the belt loops, extended the leg just a touch and gave just a bit more room in the hips (only because I need it). Full, but flattering (imo, at least).

I think he was slightly heavier then as the trousers have more room in the seat - although this could reflect an the fact that this one is from before things got a bit sharper in the early to mid-60s. In any case, I am going to have the trousers altered. But otherwise, this is also great and the fabric is again wonderful: the first picture is most accurate for colour, but close up IRL it is a rich navy/mid-blue pinpoint. Worn today with a CT Black Label shirt and an Engineered Garments bow tie. Cufflinks (in the close-ups) were made by a jewelry designer in Edinburgh from old watch parts. The braces (suspenders for those from the USA) are also vintage 1960s silk from Countess Mara.

Ironically enough, having snuck out on my lunch hour to view any potential bargains at Bergdorf's, I passed a case full of tied bow ties, all of which were as large and full as the one you are sporting today. For my tastes, for myself, the bow is too big, but you seem to "own" the look, appearing comfortable and at home with the bow - go forth and wear it in good health.

My trousers aren't that much fuller, really (if at all). It's just that my legs are much bigger than yours tounge.gif

But as a suit, it may just work. It's quite different from your usual style however (closer to something I occasionally try - operative word is try! - to pull off with that busy strongly-checked DB suit I have).

 

Yup, I agree. When I put on this jacket today (as I've mentioned previously, this was not what I was wearing when I left home) I knew it was going to be a rather busy combo, so we can say it's sort of a deliberate FU outfit, and I enjoyed it tongue.gif. Bottom, however, was grey flannels. This jacket will be worn with more sober shirts and ties from now on.

Those who are other ways uncivil in this forum ...

firstly, why are you hiding your reply in italian?

secondly, though others have addressed it, ill reply as you directed you post to me. what i do know is that you have posted a number of comments here about fit and proper pant width and what not. you are welcome to your opinion, but yours is certainly only yours. its not a fact. so to definitively make statements about pant fit, to a group of people who out right disagree with it, and to then defend it and wonder why people jump on you, after already being informed of the opinions of the general group, is pretty silly. hence my statement that timo not worry about your lone ranger opinion on his pant fit.

i believe insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome.

no one here is being uncivilized in this instance.

you can say whatever you want. just stop pretending that its a surprise when no one agrees with you.

or, as derek said, troll away, buddy.

I uploaded the photo to prove to SackSuitLover that it's possible to have a tapered full trouser (btw, that one is my fullest pair of trousers). No comparisons to your trousers, our bodies are totally different.

Btw, just saw the pleats on your light gray trouser and they're really shallow, have you tried deeper pleats?

Thanks All. No fit today, going to be 37 degrees again today (99F) and it's Friday so I'm dressed for comfort.

That sounds like the Lockie lambswool: old-fashioned, thick, comforting lambswool. Unfortunately, they don't have roll-necks in lambswool.

The brown trousers I posted yesterday have double forward pleats that are quite deep, but anyways, I've completely given up on pleats. To avoid them gaping open on me, trouser hips have to be cut really, really full - not flattering. Plus they are a bitch to iron on woollen flannel.
