Oh, Spoo-ness. if Titsworth can smell you in Dallas, and you're in the metro NYC area, I think that either you went a little heavy on the Creed this AM, or that Tits needs to engage in a new profession as human bloodhound.

(For the record, I am wearing Heritage by Guerlain today - it was cold enough such that I could stand the strength of it.)

A wool tie could have worked with this, I think, but I felt like I needed some contrasting textures. BTW, the hank is actually a silk/wool blend (sorry Stitchy) and has no sheen.
 

 

Thanks! Interesting stuff to consider.

I sometimes match my shoes to my own plum-coloured cord jacket in a similar way to this. I always slightly regret it when I glance in a mirror, as it seems a little too obvious, somehow. I still do it though.

It appears that my iPhone has given you a false impression of my palette today. The jacket is a chocolate brown corduroy, and the shoes are the same very dark brown bluchers I wore earlier this week.

I was wondering the same thing but just assumed it was the camera not representing the colors properly.

Hey guys! I posted an outfit on page 2900! My post was now accepted by a moderator. Could somebody quote it? that would be very helpful! I'm new to this forum, so thanks in advance ;)

Spoo, I love that jacket. My only problem with the fit overall is the tie seems a bit formal for the rest of the outfit--were it a knit, or wool, I think this would have been fantastic.

My first selfbought suit... (tiger of sweden)

sry for the bad quality

 

Since i'm big (1,86) and skinny i've a lot of problems finding suits that fit me... I know this one is not perfect... but better than anything I've tried so far and i fitted it a little bit at p&c tailor too!

I know you don't like lloyd shoes (and I know about their terrible repuation) but they were one of the few pairs that actually fit my feet...

 

The pair of brown shoes I also my first pair of nailed shoes which are a little bit more casual...

 

What can I improve for the future?

thx a lot...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


I mean we can't really tell anything fit wise since you are not standing straight and your bag is in front of you. It looks like maybe you want pants with a rise a little bit higher next time. the gap between your tie and the belt worry me. As for the styling, there is nothing really to write home about. It is plain, but then again I  don't know if I am making assumptions because the quality of the pics aren't too good.

 

You really can't ask for ways to improve if the quality of the pics are terrible and you don't at least provide us with details of what you are wearing.

 

since you are tall and skinny you might want to use chocsosa and clapeyron as references.

First, you're not THAT big. You're what, 1,86 M and 72 kg? If I have you sized in the photos correctly, you're actually pretty average sized. Here are the things that I've noticed in your fit pics, which the quality is really bad on:

1. It looks like you're trying really hard. The reason that most of the people in here can get away with a lot of what they do is because it looks effortless
2. Your tie is insanely short. A trick that I learned as a fellow tall (1.95 M) is that tailors can easily move the part of the tie where you tuck into. I believe Despos did a huge write-up on ties for various body shapes. It could be a worthy search.
3. Button your jacket if you want a proper fit critique
4. Smart move going with the roped shoulders. On taller and skinnier guys, it is a great trick to add some bulk and hide some of the lankiness. I have really small shoulders despite being average weight for my size, so the roped certainly helps mask some of that and give a stronger silhouette.

If you get better quality photos people will critique more. Also, avoid the mirror shots.
