HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3116  

post #46726 of 78722
Totally random question but I am running out of space in my closet and do not want to give anything up as I do wear almost all of it and no not at the same time. My question is does anyone have a trouser trolley type thing for odd trousers? I used to put them with my SC hangars but now I have more trousers than I have room for.

Thoughts? Is it stupid? Or any other solutions. I would probably use it for wool trousers, cottons, and maybe jeans

Very minimalistic but also very beautiful production, best one I've seen in quite a while.

Well...if you can't wear white tie and tails (and a cape) to the opera, at least there are three-piece suits in the world...

EFV, that jacket is absolutely stunning.

It's a very silly tie, I grant you in turn, and to be honest the jacket has lapels I've never liked, and doesn't fit well at all - to the point that I never even do it up; I just love the fabric too much to throw it away, so keep it for occasions where it's hanging on a passenger seat a lot.  Seven hours of driving, two lots of Arab immigration officials, I went for comfortable semi-casual and the image of unthreatening eccentric Englishman.  It seemed to work OK, but the tie's now back on the rack for another year or two...and I'm not nearly as pretty as you, obviously.  Thanks for the tough love though, can't get enough. revolve.gif

 

 

Edit:  haha Tirailleur, I just saw your post: fair point!  I have a thing about jeans and some other stuff, hate wrist-garbage, big scarves, various other things.  But I'm not at all anti-peacockery in reality.  The specs are grey actually, but do look blu-ish in a certain light.  Frankly, you can pull of a lot of stuff that I certainly couldn't, and really who gives a toss what I think anyway?  It's better to challenge accepted wisdom, please some and offend others, win some and lose some, than be a grey flannel-white-square-blue-shirt monotony, however nice that might be in itself.  Some of your stuff I like and some I don't, but it's yours so who gives a shit?  Without the likes of yourself, TTO and others this thread could become a bit dull. Peacock on, brother, it's better with you than without you.

(That one wasn't aimed at you specifically btw - but some in the Watch thread can hang their heads in SHAME!)

I don't bother post in there. I don't care for baller watches. I like my wrist decorated with underwhelming ornaments. My brother calls my watch choices "bitch watches" because they are so discreet. But I already wear pink socks.. I don't need flashy ass watch. Some things have to be simple with me because of the way I dress. One is a suit, the second is my watch.treat them like blank canvases. Don't like any trick doors on any of them.

Well, it was perhaps quite predicable, but the general standard of dressing at the opera yesterday night was atrocious uhoh.gif. I can only imagine a time when people actually wore tails and white tie to events like the opera.

Well done for keeping the standards up, Pingy!

I wear a 45 year old watch that has a plain leather strap, no complications, plenty of scratches and measures a very girly 35mm across.  But I do like spectator shoes.  And I also own pink socks, as well as several shades of red, burgundy, raspberry, purple....and several pairs of boring grey trousers.  I feel you.

come on.. Let us not allow nostalgia to get the best of us. A suit is good enough for the opera. The problem is that noone wears one. When I went to see Madama Butterfly my wife and I were the only ones dressed up. Lots of motorcycle jackets and flip flops. I felt out of place.

I agree completely, a suit is more than fine for a night out like that (and didn't imply I actually longed for wearing white tie). But I also felt kind of out if place, amidst all hoodies, jeans and leather jackets (no flip flops though, but that could probably be explained by the fact that we had a friggin' blizzard yesterday smile.gif )
