HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 313

post #4681 of 75863
ctp, I would only suggest that your sleeves be a bit wider, if only at the opening. I know you are going for a slim look, but the french cuff makes the sleeve expand and it does not look great. Or course, the other solution would be to only wear barrel cuffs (or smaller french cuffs, but I don't like the way those look).

I missed you guys! Had so much work and haven't even looked at WAYWRN for two weeks. Here's a quick fit from me today.




P.S. Sport coat is Boglioli, completely unaltered, from threedifferent.com. It cost me about $130 shipped. Highly recommended to everyone, they still have many sizes left. Size up if in doubt.

I agree Ed; this is an old-ish RTW shirt with fairly large cuff openings combined with a coat that has narrow-ish sleeves. You can sort of tell by the space around my wrists in the closer-up pic. I don't wear french cuffs much on a day-to-day basis anymore either, but I do tend to wear them more often with this suit. I've actually had the coat sleeve let out a bit once already, but this shirt needs even more room at the opening.

acecow, Nice shoes on their own, but I'd prefer something more casual--probably a loafer--with this outfit. Are the yellow jeans from RL by chance?

Heard that one before. I can't get myself to wear casual shoes with a jacket. Loafers would be good, but I have a lot of walking and standing to do today, so these will be infinitely more comfortable. Jeans are Zara. Cheers!

Sorry, wasn't aware of that. Didn't intend to beat a dead horse. Like I said, I do like those shoes on their own, and their not a total deal-breaker with this look either.

No need to apologize. All comments are more than welcome, especially critical ones. Since this is a common concern with these jeans (and I do tend to wear these shoes with these jeans a lot), I might eventually give in to it, since I kind of see what you're saying too.

BTW, your suit is very-very nice, but I'll echo the comments about the sleeves. They seem a bit narrow.

A day of court and meetings. Without the hat, I think this passes CBD muster. Looking forward to the weekend - Philly Beer Fest. International Beer Expo on Saturday and then the Philadelphia Bike Race on Sunday.

Looks nice, Lufty. Something I always notice about your fits, though, are your pants. In my humble opinion, they either have to be narrower or longer. Wider hem doesn't really work well with no (or seems like it's negative in this case) break.

I like this a lot, but the jeans are a tad snug in the crotch, I think. **EDIT: on second look, in that first picture it might be a denim ripple. However, first impression was as above.***

These could benefit from being 1/2" longer, but there's a mild break on these. The wind took these pants and ran with 'em.

Ahha! I'm too humble to respond. But actually, they aren't tight. In fact, I had them taken in last week.

Well, at least you're not Tito Ortiz. ***LINK NSFW***.
