HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2898  

post #43456 of 78721
Something casual with which to end the week.

Playing with some of my "new toys" (the cords and the waistcoat) . . .

All is from BB, except the PS (PRL), the scarf (Aquascutum) and the hat (Tesi)

^^^ I wouldn't have creased the cords, but otherwise I like it! Pushes me another centimeter toward getting a camel hair SC.

Crusty the SC looks a bit big for my liking but I love that coat nod[1].gif

The cords ARE creased - it's merely that they're BB Milanos, and my legs barely fit inside them shog[1].gifsmile.gif

The SC I bought prior to being my current weight, and recently had re-tailored to fit the somewhat smaller me. The shoulders are still a shade large, but for casual wear, I'll bear up under the strain of a less-than-optimal fit.

The overcoat I picked up at one of BB's warehouse sales about three years ago or so - a very lucky find.

Re-read that, Señor Crust. CM doesn't like the creases.

BlackUmbrella, I like the grey tie with that SC. What trousers may i ask?

They were charcoal, which was OK, but I wasn't super happy with it.

Today




I haven't worn these pants in almost a year. Could use a press.

could not get any good lighting with my full pic so i had to adjust the color. but it still does not pic up on the definite color difference between the pants and SC.

stichy, my first instinct with that tie would be suit rather than odd jacket, but as the jacket & trousers are so sober anyway, I do believe it works well in this context regardless. Nice one. Also consider the same combination with a cream/ecru shirt instead. A warm colour like that might play even better with the yellow in the tie and the brown of the shoes.

Today and yesterday.

 

Really like this, and especially noteworthy for me as it's a rare visual exception to my oft-mentioned preference for black shoes with most suits. The lightness of that pair harmonises very nicely with the chalkstripe, and actually the snow (or is it light reflecting off a wet surface?) really helps pull the paler elements together..

I admittedly have some eccentric preferences, but one is that navy odd trousers are better in summer fabrics rahter than wintry ones. I think because it summer, navy and white look vaguely seasidey/nautical. I'd make an exception for navy cords; not sure why...

Thank you; it really is. Feels like a warm fuzzy cloud. Weird thing is, it was a completely impulsive afterthought purchase when I got it last year, and if I'd thought about it more, I might have balked at the cost, but is now one of my favourite items. Go figure. I should go with the flow more, I suppose.

 

 

 

 

Forgive the lack of shoes in today's photo. It's snowing a fair amount today, so wellies were required and I don't traipse around indoors in those! Also not pictured are a really heavy plaid DB, brown leather gloves, a superthick cashmere/silk double-sided scarf and a brown felt fedora. Yes, I was definitely wrapped up against the elements...

 

It took me 1.5 hours to drive under 10 miles to an appointment, then I did about 3/4hr work there before deciding that further travel was beyond a joke (both time & risk) and cancelled the rest of my day. It just wasn't worth it, as no-one here (me included) ever gets much experience dealing with refrozen snowy/icy roads and we don't think to have such things as snow chains or winter tyres. I have quattro, but still, the traction control couldn't function properly and even with it off, you couldn't really brake safely from above around 10-15mph... not that the traffic allowed for such speeds for long. I took the city centre route home instead of the ring road, and actually, that was a lot better with the journey taking half the time, but still, no regrets about the cancellations now I'm back in my warm home! :)

Nice jacket / shirt / tie combo, Stitch. The colours are bang-on. Like HF though, I was expecting a suit as I scrolled down.

is the first one a Chan, too?
the final decision on jacket length is a personal one, can't tell much from the finished jacket with the shirt untucked and your feet not included in the shot, but it looks like it's covering your butt. so i'd say that works well especially if you are short, as you said.

I couldn't perform a golf swing in a jacket not even with armholes high enough to cut of blood circulation, maybe with raglan sleeves smile.gif


@tits: how is critiquing a garment which can yet be fully altered more ludicrous than critiquing a finished garment where most alterations are not an option any more?

This coat (in the fitting stage) isn't by Chan. They are no longer my go-to tailor.

What do you think about the shape of the coat that is in the fitting stage? I kind of prefer it over Chan's silhouette.
