I am actually more concern about the mickey mouse pocket square.

 

That's not a cause for concern. That's a cause for awesome.

 

Mind you, Scrooge McDuck would have been even better.

 

I just googled for a Scrooge McDuck pocket square. There's a gap in the market, folks.

Don't take it to heart fellas. I cheerfully admit to being a crap judge of age. Maybe it's the combination of no hair on head and hair on face that triggers some suppressed subconscious association with advanced years.

Holdfast - any light to shed on that? biggrin.gif

 

Yeah...

It's a nice comment... but it does make you think, "if I look so much younger now, just how ancient did I look before?! And why didn't you gits tell me anything then?!" lol smile.gif

It would not take too much paging backwards in this thread to see holdfast with a beard, and I had a Van Dyke until March 2011, at which point I removed it, much to the acclaim of virtually all posters to these fora. The reaction was much like that for holdfast, "You look x (5, 10, 15, 20) years younger". As the Van Dyke was getting greyer with every trimming, I was happy to see it go. ( I will PM you with a "before" photo).

As for Mafoofan, a beard would look unnatural in the extreme. Between his physical stature and his general mien, especially with his last photo posting, with no glasses and somewhat spiked hair (showing off his Rubinacci greatcoat - which was great in many ways), he would look as natural as a middle-school student growing a beard.

I can do my part, and fulfil the first of your three wishes. First snap is from Feb 2009, the second from April 2012. Leaving aside the beard, you can see my hair getting thinner (with a few extra greys; not so obviously visible) up top over the years, and even more so nowadays. Hence finally accepting fate, and changing hairstyle a month or so ago, as you know from my recent pics. Big sigh... laugh.gif

 

 

Actually, it's been kind of funny going back to more or less the same hairstyle now that I had as a teen. It's thinner (and shorter) than it used to be, of course, but I do find it looks better now, and everyone I know has agreed with that. So it's good really. smile.gif

Happy St Patricks Day, guys.

Looks nice Williams - change out the shoes to brown (walnut?) and you're good to go! Also maybe a more casual shirt collar style like an (puts on flamesuit) OCBD or whatever

(edited for clarity)



Holdfast - I meant to comment this a few pages back on looking at that Friday picture drop, I've been around long enough to remember the ol' Holdfast of 3-5 years ago. You've still got that flair but I have noticed your jacket shapes have changed. I always thought your SC / suit jackets were a bit oversized and particularly long and these new ones are a much cleaner fit. Just $0.02.

Not so sure it can be done.

OK, I admit. The eylet collar shirt (pin collar) is not vintage or second hand.

 

But the rest is

Your fits always bring a unique look. This one comes together nicely IMO; the hat, jumper & jacket are all equally leery, so work pretty well together.

To find the bearded pics posted earlier, I looked back through my old photo albums, and there's certainly truth to the above, especially on the length issue.

 

I still have a lot of the jackets/suits of that era but it's very noticeable that the ones I've kept are largely the bespoke/MTM ones (where of course there's more control over jacket length) and the ones I've sold off have been RTW in lengths that were about an inch too long for me. My former Brioni & RLPL stuff fell into this category. Having said that, two of the jackets posted in the Friday batch of pics are RTW (the brown plaid & the plum cord ones) and you can see from my recent bespoke jackets (like the grey one from Friday's batch) that I still take a longer length jacket than many would. In terms of jacket chest fit, I actually think I've overdone the leanness this time & I'm thinking of an (ever so slightly) looser fit around the upper chest next time, so as to allow me to carry a bit more in the inside pockets without it messing up the way the jacket lies. It's perfect without stuff in the pockets, but needs a bit more tolerance built in.

 

It's interesting & fun to look back through old pics; I recommend it to anyone who's posted here for a while. There are definitely trends; some short-lived, some longer, some you back-track on, some evolve further.

 

(PS. no need to be so tentative about offering feedback!)
