HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2921  

post #43801 of 78723

Eton shirt 

Caruso jacket (it's more brown than it appears in this photo.)

PS Stenströms

Tie is not as shiny IRL. It is probably due to the hip hipstamatic tweaks...

 

Brown trousers and cordovan wingtips not shown.

I'm sure a lot of people wont like this, but I did it anyway.

I like it. Contrasting Tie is nice.

This jacket is waay to tight. I really want to start over my coat collection now that I have concluded that excessively close fitting = not good...

 

Disclaimer: Crotch is doing weird things because these pants have double forward pleats and the extra material bunches up in this pose. I'm not smuggling potatoes.

He should have steam ironed the turnups. The creases from where th eold turn up was are still visible. I can see it reflected in those highly polished shoes wink.gif

Thanks. I didn't know if it would work, but I think I like it.

Crust, I don't comment often on fits, but do follow and appreciate. This one is you, is one of my favorites, the cut of the suit is nice and seems to fit you great! I especially notice the difference in the sleeve and trouser tapper.

Yes, you are correct! Thank you very much!

Great as usual, but this combo jumps of the page, it's awesome!

It's a bit cold in here, temperature is around 9°C, so for us it's very cold. So no tie today, no jacket, I opted for a coat.

well, i have 2 pairs. before i explain further please everyone do not laugh at my fatness.

i too have a stomach, and "athletic" thighs. i got one pair in a size 38, that is my normal pants size, which i took out a tiny tiny bit, and i got another pair in dark gray in a size 40, that i had to take in at the waist about an inch and a half.

they both now fit the same in the waist, and although maybe the 38 technically fits me better, and looks great in pics, they really dont feel that awesome on my fat thighs and crotch area. the 40s however, look almost exactly the same, maybe dont look quite as nice in pics as the 38s, but feel so much better and are really really comfy. i would say if you are a little bigger in the gut/thighs, you are better off sizing up and then having a tailor take them in, and even maybe trim the width a tad if you want. just my experience.
