HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3064

New suit, new kicks, same crappy office lighting. Cheers!



(This is a MTM suit. I tend to like a more fitted and slightly shorter jacket profile, but for the next round I'm going to add some length and let out the waist a little)

The fit is really good in my opinion, little longer jacket would make it as good as possible
I would have the trousers shortened a tad, so you could show some sock. biggrin.gif but then i do like to show my socks at all times...

shog[1].gif 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.

Have you seen that thread, SB? I seriously can't figure out if it's trolls or just general all around baldy[1].gif

Thread? Not sure I wanna.

For the record, I don't have an inherent objection to "cargo" pants with a jacket if the pants are on the tailored end of the spectrum. Crumply cargo chinos, however, shall not pass.

Kappelan had a look with cargo pants a few months back that I really dug.

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.

Relaxed school look.

Berg&Berg cashmere tie and silk pocket square.
Suitsupply Boston DB blazer
Jacob Cöhen Academy cargos

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.

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.

Go even further: green tie, black suit, dark brown shoes and a pink pocket square. I call it, the Quattro Stagioni outfit. stirpot.gif

 

Shirt? White, obviously, for the mozzarella...
