HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2877  

post #43141 of 78724

^^

This is a nice mixture of stuff I agree with, stuff I'll challenge (ties always among the darkest items worn), and stuff I can't help but find totally risible. "Too young to be combing your hair?" Advice on what clothes to put one's chauffeur in? Scarf monograms?

Thanks for the feedback ;)

Absolutely true. Probably having a wife gives wrong incentives for that :D

 

2. Get a better haircut with some structure underneath, so you no longer need to comb it, but towel dry and go. You are too young to be combing your hair. Find a stylist that trained or apprenticed at Jingles or the like, as they will know what to do. Women will notice this immediately, but not be certain of what has changed.

 

Thanks, but I like it like that ;) 

 

3. De-tag your scarf as you now own it. You can always have your initials or monogram embroidered upon it, if you believe it is a common color and/or subject to being mis-placed.

 

The tag actually looks really nice, as it is from a small little Scottish shop. I actually agree with de-taging absolutely ugly tags. 

 

4. If you aren't attending a wedding or other outdoors day event, you need to wear a much darker tie with your suit. Light colored  or low color intensity ties are the most common faux pas and they almost always look weak on camera or even at just beyond the range of a handshake. Save the silver ties for outside weddings and garden parties, they are weak sauce and contrast failure. Keep your ties as dark or darker than all other elements sans accessories like shoes, belts, and pocket squares.

 

As the conditions fail, that's an exception ;) 

 

5. Put your chauffeur in some form of a uniform, even if it is simply black lounge, or you should begin to stop dressing in the same style, unless you wish to have people confuse your station and function with his.

 

I will tell him so :D

 

6. You might wish to consider wearing a boutonniere OR a pocket square, but not both at the same time, personal style and all aside.

 

Special condition  ;) 

 

7. I am not sure if it is wise to show shirt cuff from under a top coat, but it does look presentable.

 

Thanks, I don't know why, but for some reason I developed the behaviour to wear coats more in a suit jacket way. That's the reason why I wear a PS in it, too. For some reasons, I like it that way. 

 

8, Your scarf knot certainly looks functional, but it is not elegant.

 

I was bored by common scarf knots, so I tried to tie it my own way, but probably I've to think about that. 

 

On a more positive note; you seem to have an excellent tailor, a good sense of pattern matching, and a wonderful taste in automobiles. Congratulations!

 

Thanks a lot ;)

Imo a top coat worn over a shirt is a bad look.
Why not put on a sweater, the suit jacket or a SC?

Much improved look from earlier posts IMO. Although I might have gone with a patterned shirt.

Jacket might look tight due to the pose, but it's actually on the loose side. Completely unstructured.

RDiaz, who makes the SC? I like the unstructured look. 

post #43152 of 78724

A local brand called Mirto. Got it on great discount. The fabric is something I had never heard about before, it says "lana italiana by Bottoli" and is undyed.

 

Shirt shoulders are great. I don't even feel like I'm wearing a jacket at all. I'd have liked the jacket better if it had padded lapels and higher armholes, but the lack of any canvas is something different and welcome, too.

Yeah, well... I suppose it depends on what you like. The hat is actually quite versatile because you can also put it down for a more low-key look. I added 2 more pics to the original post. Have a look - maybe you'll like it more :)

It looks great. My shoulders seem to not have much luck when it comes to off the rack SCs but unstructured ones just seem to look better on me. I am going to see if Mirto is available anywhere online. Thanks!

-20C is nothing for that hat! I wore it in such temps and was very comfy! The only problem is that the fur is so thick that when you put the "ears" down, you really don't hear a lot :P
