This is so dumb.. how does what a next man wears annoy you? eat your food and enjoy your company.

Agreed that hats should not be worn indoors.

If the pic is where I think it is (Buttermilk Channel), it's a pretty casual restaurant. I still think people shouldn't wear their hats indoors, but it's hardly a coat and tie kinda place. It's also in brownstone Brooklyn, land of the Man-Boys (and I say this as someone who lives in brownstone Brooklyn... It's very unfortunate to see a 40 year old man dressed like a child, but that's the de facto uniform here).

I will lament the decline of places requiring a coat and tie though. There are very few of them left, but I do appreciate them even more for it.

On this MLK / Inauguration Day, the wind chill is near zero. Perfect LL Bean Norwegian day.

Like the top half, jeans are a little too evenly faded for my tastes.


Happy MLK day all. Since the green cord got little love on its first time out, we try again.

Oh, the jeans are just a beat up old pair for doing chores before and after watching the inauguration.

Really like your coat, today.

Yes, I have a talent for strange facial expressions and yes, I have a dropped right shoulder unaccounted for in this suit.

I disagree...if one has made an effort to look nice, and adhere to common etiquette, manors in fact - I find it very rude/lazy if others don't. I make an effort to leave the room to use the phone, I find it rude when others don't. I find it rude when people can't be bothered to take a hat off...that's all it is - laziness! It's just manors,

I'm not a fan of the high-buttoned waistcoat, personally. A bit too retro for me. The rest of teh suit, and the whole outfit otherwise, though, is excellent.

could be fun to see how picking out clothing suitable to your size and proportions matters.

This is an interesting concept, but you'd need honest feedback as to everyone's proper height and weight (height/weight isn't listed in one's profile).

All lined up, I'm sure that we'd all look like a fashion-conscious set of those Russian dolls - from Foo to Spoo to Vaux-le-Vicomte.

 

Worth doing, just for the amusement value, surely? :)

It looks great, but what you've highlighted is, for me, the litmus test for whether you like soft shoulders or not. Some people really dig that feeling, others figure that if they want that, they'll wear something other than a tailored jacket altogether and go for a different look. A well-fitted, more structured shoulder is still very comfortable, without leading to that cardigan-like feeling. I know exactly what you mean; I have a summer suit that has completely soft shoulders and it's had positive feedback here on the shoulders look/fit, but I just don't like that feeling compared to how my more structured-shouldered (but equally well-fitting) jackets. It feels "unsupported", and not what I want from a jacket, somehow. I forget about that about minute after putting it on, of course, but just moving around during the day, you're reminded of it occasionally, and it nags.

I really like this colour combination. Fresh and vibrant colours, harkening Spring.

I really dig this. It's not the most perfect we've ever seen on the boards, but I get a real feeling it's working for you. Not sure what's creating that vibe, specifically, but I get it anyway.

I'm with cronicmole on this one; while I happen to think the world would look certainly look a lot prettier if everyone dressed better, try to think of it more as an added unexpected bonus than something essential to your pleasure. As long as other people aren't actively interfering in your enjoyment of the meal (eg by being loud or intrusive/rude), then I'm of the school that considers each table's dining experience as localised to that table, protected by an invisible social bubble of their own imagination, if you like. I've been in restaurants where some people are wearing black tie to celebrate a special occasion, while others are in suits, and still others in casual clothes and each table (including our own, which was somewhere in the suited middle) was still clearly enjoying itself without reference to the other tables. It's more about the ability of the collection of diners to function in a communal social atmosphere while maintaining acceptable polite boundaries, I think, rather than their specific clothing. That's the ideal form of a restaurant to me personally anyway.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not much snow overnight, so back in normal footwear rather than wellies. I only bought these dainite-soled chukkas a couple of weeks ago, but it was really fortuitiously-timed as I've probably worn them about four or five times since then as they've been ideal for the weather. Apologies for the large collage; I wanted to include the outerwear shot but ended up misjudging the overall size once the close-up was included and can't be bothered to resize now.
