HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2968

Stitch - tie shirt and jacket look great together. Silhouette wise, I think you could benefit from:

-slightly extended shoulder
-slightly longer jacket (could be an angle thing)
-slightly lower buttoning point
-slightly longer trou
-wider leg opening

thanks, buddy.

all solid info, and i am aware of it. i dont disagree with any of this. SC was from B&S and is a little small. it was a great deal and is a great jacket, so i felt it was worth it even though the fit is not perfect. i think its still quite good. and i think the length is exaggerated by the angle, as you astutely pointed out.

the pants length i dont really mind, and actually wear a tad longer in normal wear, i hiked em up a bit extra to compensate for the jacket buttoning point. thanks again for the critique. i hope i was not dismissive.

There are some jackets that I have a 3 roll 2...the lapel rolls enough naturally that I've had it lightly pressed into a 3r2. Other jackets have flat lapels and so I fasten the top button. I like the way it looks and it just looks sloppy otherwise.

 

I would really like to hear the aesthetic analysis behind avoiding that top button. It doesn't work for all body types, but I'm 6 feet with shoes and have the right torso shape.

 

Got linked to a solid post on the matter...but it didn't really get into any real detail. Here are a couple pictures from it that I found interesting.

Looks alright...just not a fan.

 

12 kinds of awesome.

Ii I didn't get your idea wrong, I agree with you. The first two pics look alright TO ME, but not the look I will like to use. I think that in the first two pics, the top button, should be buttoned. In the case of the other two pics, the 3 roll 2, looks awesome, yeah I would use something like that.

Estitchy, I like this, especially the sock-trouser-shoe combo.

Not at all - the part that I think is most in need of remedy is the leg opening of the pants though. I experience the same thing, as I have fairly big feet and umm...not exactly slender hips and ass. If you make the leg opening this narrow, it makes your feet look awkwardly big and also makes you look more "hippy". I like to keep a cleaner, straighter line through the leg, which then also serves to cover more of the shoe to diminish the clown shoe effect.

Greeting All.

 

It's been a while since I posted something.....yesterday I experimented wearing this rare color tie with the finest texture. I could have done with a slight bigger knot.

glad i came off as accepting of your points.

absolutely agree to this one as well. i have large feet and a large derrière and hips. the bane of my pant fitting life. and these are by far my slimmest pants. unfortunately they are my only mid/light gray flannels. due to this fact, i just ordered a new pair last night that i think will be better suited to my build. ill still wear these because they are awesome, but admittedly, their cut is not ideal for my build.

My first shot at three patterns. How'd we do?

post #44518 of 75712

^^^ I like it. Especially the tie. Much better than my first attempt at three patterns.
