Thank you for your honest opinion. I like my Stetson Playboy fedora so I will continue to wear it. The tie is wonderfully dated in a festively smart Late 30's way. I do however understand your setiment towards the tie. I don't wear it often because it is uniquely a period item.

Have you thought about reading more books? You might find that very young looking people once wore suits and fedoras outside of Hollywood cartoons.

There is a softness, and a regal warmth you embody in these pictures. You wear in a wonderfully reserved gentle manner. I can see Anderson & Sheppard asking you to sport a few models for a newspaper article. Well done Sir.

Sorry if I touched a nerve. Okay if you want objective criticism... your Fedora is too big for your head, I think you need a size smaller. As for kids wearing Fedoras, I´m old enough to have had parents and
grandparents who were around in the 20´s. Money was tight and putting Fedoras on kids heads wasn´t really a priority. Buttoned collars and cuffed that could be removed and starched or replaced were. That fact didn´t come from reading books either.

Thank you. I think you are right. I wear a 22 3 /8 . This is fitting like 22 1/2 towards a 22 5/8. I will resize it this morning. Btw I am 26, I can put a hat on my own head, I just have to make sure that it's not a little big for my already very "big" head.

Three patterns pulled together nicely Derek. Digging those loafers crusty, and the entire outfit as well.

Thank you, gentlemen. I credit at least part of my success in dressing well to the advice (sometimes strongly stated) from these fora - occasionally, when one bangs one's head against the wall enough times, either the wall moves, or good sense enters the skull. I leave it to your judgment as to which has occurred smile.gif.

As for Anderson & Sheppard, I am sure that they'd be more interested in my modeling skills were I a paying client - as it is, I've not the cash nor the time in the UK to have something made by them - yet.

Tibor, as someone with more years of experience in wearing hats, I will tell you that, as you age, either your skull with get a bit larger, or your hats will shrink - slightly oversized is not such a bad thing.

The juxtaposition of yjung in a windowpane suit and nonchalantly carrying a baseball bat, and Tibor in his retro-styled double-breasted suits & fedoras makes me think I've wandered into a Chandler novel. Fun, for sure.

Love the paisley tie, and it works well with teh shirt and jacket. I'm not convinced the red of the pocket square is a good addition.

My first instinct is that a solid shirt would work better than the stripe, if you're going to use that solid square.

 

I actually sometimes like the slightly kaleidoscopic effect generated by similar scale patterns together (yes it's a clash, but if done deliberately and well, that can be fun too), but in that case, I would think going the whole hog with a patterned square as well would sell the intent better. As it is, the square is very sober, and so demands a bit of sobriety elsewhere too. A solid shirt would probably do that, by separting the relatively similar-scaled jacket & tie.
