I like the bottom half so much and hate the top half so much. I just dont know if that SC is really wearable.

Your love is all i need.
Actually I think it's a common phenomenon; if you don't post that often, people don't comment. Maybe because it's easier to judge a fit if you have a coherent image of the poster.
I am bewildered by this response. It shows maturity, something I know doesn't exist here. The cognitive dissonance is overwhelming. As for the picture posted, it was too dark for me to get a sense of the details, so I refrained from comment.Quote:Originally Posted by Pingson
Ended up in discussion about the virtues of the three-piece suit the "good taste" thread yesterday and decided to follow through with today's selection. I now realise that sans the vest this is awfully close to what Sander posted yesterday - which is actually a good thing since he looked great! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I swear that I did not consult with pingson above when deciding on today's fit.
Back to work after a three-day weekend, and facing rain in the afternoon. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The first thought which comes to mind with the tie is "retina-searing."Quote:Originally Posted by DerekS
not sure how i feel about this...i havent worn a navy tie/navy blazer together. Is the texture enough to differentiate? thanks in advance for the opinions. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I don't care for that type of shirt, but I accept that others do, so taking that as given, this seems like a fairly good use of it. Except for the hank. It stands out in saturation and sheen, and relates to nothing else you have on.Quote:Originally Posted by in stitches
once again, color representation in full pic is off. ugh. stupid overcast cloudy day. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I like the monochrome, Stitchy. Keep on keepin' on.Quote:Originally Posted by Monkeyface

Even if we accept the notch lapel on the DB (which is a lot to accept), the lapel width is far too skimpy. The tie also leans too far toward spring/summer for the jacket fabric.Quote:Originally Posted by ianGP

Ian, almost everything about this is indefensible, yet it comes together with a louche effect which somehow allows you to pull it off.Quote:Originally Posted by IrateCustomer

I like this in spite of the red tie.post #45678 of 787192/19/13 at 10:19ampost #45679 of 787192/19/13 at 10:19ampost #45680 of 787192/19/13 at 10:23ampost #45681 of 787192/19/13 at 10:25ampost #45682 of 787192/19/13 at 10:41ampost #45683 of 787192/19/13 at 10:46amQuote:
You're finally getting a handle on how to wear it, and now you want to sell it? Color me confused...post #45684 of 787192/19/13 at 10:46amQuote:Quote:
thanks, guys. i knew this fit would elicit different reactions. certainly its not for everyone, and the scale issue is something that will bother some. appreciate the feedback, and the fact that you all enjoyed at least one segment of the fit.
shugz - great fit.Quote:Originally Posted by Mr. Moo
stitch... I don't know if that particular pose, with your fists at your sides is working for you. You look rather stiff.
Try this one instead. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
if i ever look like that, i will do that pose.post #45685 of 787192/19/13 at 10:48amQuote:
lol, i love it, and im quite happy with the things i can pair with it that i like, im just feel it might me boxy. idk, i change my mind every time i wear it. next time i wear it ill probably say im keeping it FOREVAR!!! lol.post #45686 of 787192/19/13 at 11:00amQuote:Originally Posted by in stitches
TTO - amaing. please do not ever post a fit after me again. kthnx.
thanks, man. i know its very contrarian, but i tend enjoy this SC more with only blacks, grays and whites. monochrome. i know its not a fran fave.
i figured as much. PERV!
thanks, mimo. i will be careful for that. lol.
hey now. saturday is a holy day. you must have meant sunday.
sidebar - i also find myself using any colorful striped shirts much less. almost exclusively in a casual look.
Is this your profile description on adultfriendfinder?post #45687 of 787192/19/13 at 11:06amQuote:
Claggers, open quarters refers to the lower front of your jacket. See how, in particular with today's pic, your jacket fronts overlap almost to the hem? This makes the jacket look kinda boxy and square. If you have open quarters, which I guess can be manipulated by a tailor taking a slice out of your side seems, the jacket will open slightly below the button to make a tall narrow A-line from your jacket front edges. Be careful not to go to far and get the turkey triangle, with your tie, shirt and belt buckle peeking out from beneath your jacket button.
I like the high buttoning point of some of your jackets and have complimented yor 'hard threes' in the past too. It's easier for taller people to pull these off, shorties end up looking too squat and need the illusion of height given by longer lapels and lower buttoning points, but if I can rest my pint pot on the top of their heads confortably then no amount of tailoring gimmicks is gonna help them.post #45688 of 787192/19/13 at 11:12amQuote:
Thanks for the advice, really appreciate it. I'm still experimenting with what looks good on me and what doesn't. I feel that a DB with a peak lapel might be a bit too much for a guy my age, especially for going to class. I've been eying a navy wool/linen DB with peak lapels though, so I might just give that a try when spring comes around.
What kind of tie would you recommend for this kind of weather/fabric? It was very sunny today, but also very close to freezing.post #45689 of 787192/19/13 at 11:12ampost #45690 of 787192/19/13 at 11:20am
