England just doesn't function when it snows. Snow happens most years (well, there was a run of several years with very little, but that was a while back), but it only ever lasts a few days or so each time, so none of us on an individual level find it economical to invest in snow chains/tyres, and the transport industry finds it equally uneconomical to invest in adequate measures. So instead we just grind to a somewhat dangerous halt for the handful of snow days we get each year. I've learned to just not drive anywhere until it starts melting; it's not worth the risk/effort.

 

Turtlenecks are awesome, aren't they? I'm thinking navy will be my next one. Or maybe a really dark green.

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.

On a snowy day, this makes me yearn even more for Panama weather to return... that particular one suits you, by the way (the crown could stand to be just a fraction less tall, perhaps, but the angle makes it difficult to be sure). I'd agree with you and NOBD that choosing hats is tricky and best done in person and with a lot of patience. In fact, it's probably the most finicky thing I've experienced in terms of clothing. It has to be exactly right for you, or it looks terrible. It's far more demanding in that regard than even something like shirt or jacket fit.

Yes; that is indeed great fear that we're experiencing...

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.)

Thanks! Interesting stuff to consider.

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)

What I def. need are 2 belts brown/black fitting the shoes... this one is just bad...

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.
