Foo, I have a question about the coat. Why are your buttons not horizontal? Is that because of the way you're standing or is that a flaw of the coat? It looks like your left side is drooping down. I'm only nit picking because I assume this is a bespoke item, so it seemed strange.

Yeah I noticed that too. When I look at myself straight on in the mirror, everything is parallel and straight. Maybe it was the way i was leaning a bit in the photo. Also, I may have forgotten to anchor the fronts with the inside button.

Love that blue linen blazer with the white buttons. Makes me want to get this:

But besides the deflated balloon: nice, SB.

Mind you, this was a cheap touristy one from a market stall (I want to say in Istanbul, but can't really remember where), and yours looks much nicer. Do you ever get to wear it?


it's actually an Igbo chief hat. Since I am Yoruba most Igbo folks might pop a vein seeing me wear one but they are too cool not to.

 

Here are some examples of me wearing the hat...

 

Cool is definitely the word; those snaps are great. Thanks for sharing them.

 

 

 

 

Casual day today:

Honestly that is so short that it reminds me of a woman's blazer.

It is a bizarre jacket across the board.

Eeps, not a fan of those microscopic lapels.

I have a blazer with silver buttons which I quite like. A bit different than the normal brass buttons, but still within the realm of good taste IMO.

This is the right way? Or....

In this case, it is not simply that there is a "rule" against folding non-linen squares. In fact, I have never read or heard of such a thing. It is a matter of reasoning based on my observation, experience, and knowledge. If you think it makes sense to fold material that doesn't fold well and doesn't need to be folded, obviously no one will pull you over and arrest you. However, to those of us who have tread the same path, it will look like you don't know how to stuff a square. Maybe in an alternate reality where aesthetics are unlinked to sensibility and know-how, you shouldn't care about this. But that's not our reality. That you're all here wearing jackets, ties, and pocket squares is powerful evidence of that.

I don't think this is a matter of rules (although you seem to be of two minds about it). You believe that silk doesn't fold well, and, yes, if you seek a crisp line from a silk hank folded and stuffed, you will be disappointed. The possibility I know you will not consider is that some may like that relaxed presentation.

 Looks very good! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

 Yeah, I also need to trim a few pounds off this winter.

Does the appearance of something being forced into a shape it doesn't want to take convey a "relaxed presentation?"
