HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2975  

post #44611 of 78723
@HoldFast - i look forward to seeing the new threads. really like your SC and trou in todays fit. i think a solid shirt and a more subtle, less shiny, tie, would have maybe been a little better. but i know that is your steez, so dont even pay a brother no mind.

I like all of this, except the tie. In the overall context, I think a solid navy, textured tie would have elevated this. Everything is soft and rustic, and then the tie punched me in the face. I really don't like getting punched in the face, HF.

Yeah, I knew I'd get those comments. All I can say is that whether it's liked or not, it was a very conscious/deliberate choice to wear a more citified shirt & tie combination with the casual jacket. I found the formality contrast enjoyable, and think it's acceptable as the stripe is so bold and the tie fabric ridiculously thick & chunky, despite their formality in every other respect. Millions won't agree. :)

 

PS. Irate - try to think of it as good for you; wakes you up and keeps you on your toes. Otherwise you might become RelaxedCustomer and then where would we be?! :p

 

PPS. in fact, I actually really hate wearing that tie with more typical businessy outfits. The fat, almost plushy, silk and the size of knot that results, is just too much flash, even for me (and that's saying something). For some reason, I prefer it against more casual elements like today.

I really like this outfit. The jacket's pattern isn't just bold; it has an almost graphic feel to it. Paired that with other largely monochromatic items, in a casual look, works for me. I think it would absolutely dreadful if done with, say, mid-grey trousers, a pale blue shirt, and burgundy or brown shoes, to pick some of SF's favourite items. It needs the monochromatic look, to let the rounded red elbow patches be the sole non-black/white rectilinear item in the look.

Cool. Same principle applies IMO; it's the sole non-(near-)monochrome element and that singular vivid element has been given the room to really shine in the fit you put together.

Can you please tell me if this suit is fits right?  Is it OK?

First set of photos are jacket buttoned,  second set is jacket open.  

Please excuse the fact that nothing is hemmed, basting threads not removed, etc.

Any advice most gratefully appreciated!!
 

Also--if there is a better thread to ask this--please re-direct me, thank you.
