as the below proves, you are also not the only one succeeding.
youre asking for it. #menswear overload. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
it dont bother me.
I came home bone tired. Just wasn't feeling up to fiddling with the tripod.
But it is indeed chocolate piccola. It does indeed look orangish, though not to quite that extent in real life.
Espú... I was going to write you a new DM but I think I'll ask here. How is the fit of Finamore shirts? Cause, example, a 16 inch neck has shoulder measurement of 17" or something like that.
Only pros coordinate the colour of the writing on their sombrero to their tie.
If you had worn socks, this would probably have been one of my fave outfits of yours. I really like it otherwise, esp. the tie choice.
Having said that, I suppose the fact that I'd get frostbite if I went outside without sock in our current weather, might just be colouring my judgement...
Really love the shirt/tie/jacket combination here. Great colours together. You are fond of throwing in a totally random square; I've decided to consider this trait quaintly charming. ;)
This looks MUCH better this time round. Well done. Trousers & jacket appear much more in proportion with each other, and there's a nicer set of colour contrasts than I remember from last time.
tbh, I think you got a lot of stick for that fit that you probably wouldn't have attracted if you weren't Moo. I do agree with the critiques on the trouser opening/taper (not quite sure there's an easy remedy, though) and the large degree of negative tie space, but overall, I actually like the colours in the outfit and the overall impression I got was of a respectably-dressed guy.
Love the top half. I appreciate that skinny cargos are the menswear flavour of the month at the moment, so if you enjoy them, have fun with them. Having said that, they look much better within this outfit than on the other one you posted. Pairing them with a funky take on a blazer/schoolboy outfit almost makes some sense. Pairing them with a striped suity jacket really doesn't.
The thing with non-formal dress codes is this: they're almost always instituted out of a desire to break down the barriers/intimidation created by more formal dress (either between employees, or between employees & clients). What this fails to realise is that there will be equal (often greater) differentiation in quality of dress/style with a casual code. Therefore, if someone is intimidated by a well-dressed man, they'll be just as likely to be just as intimidated by a really sharp casual fit as a really sharp formal one.
Now, the exact composition of who is doing the intimidating might be different between the two codes, but you can absolutely guarantee that someone will be better dressed than someone else, and therefore create a dress-based unconscious barrier. It's also arguable that this differentiation is actually less with suits than casual dress. What they really want with a casual dress code isn't casual dress but equally casual dress, but they don't usually have the intellectual honesty to say that unless it's something like a place with an actual uniform.
The moustache makes you look like a 70s cop. Awesome. Or awesomely camp. Not quite sure yet. But it's cool anyway.
Experimenting wildly today. Rest assured, I have my asbestos underwear on, so feel free to flame away. As you all know by now, every once in a while, I like to throw something weird together, on the off chance I do like some elements from it that I can then use in a more sensible outfit at a later date. My initial feelings are that I like the jacket/waistcoat/jeans/shoe combination, but not with that shirt/tie. However, I actually like the shirt/tie combo in isolation. So on some future cold day, I might try the core outfit again but with a blue oxford shirt and a dark wool or cashmere tie. And use the shirt/tie combo in a more summery look later in the year.
