HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3236

I believe that SB's fabric would be called a tickweave, though fil a fil or end on end (in a shirting fabric, certainly) would be about the same weave.

Yeah, that looks totally different up close... Not what I expected to see. Definitely not a nailhead.

That closeup is the first time I've looked that closely at it, and to my eye it appears to be a micro-houndstooth.

This jacket is fantastic. Those lapels and roped shoulders have "authority". I think that this is the best of all your posts which are always good. The conservative striped shirt with the solid tie perfectly sets up the stage for that bright pocket square. Que bien!

Not quite. Fil-a-fil, end on end, and chambray are all just plain woven fabrics with different colored warps and weft. A tick weave is more general in that its a fabric with a repeating pattern. A houndstooth is a tick weave that is twill woven. Birdseye is also a tick weave. It's all very esoteric and silly.

Thanks for the kind comment. As for the PS fold, it's quite simple - fold the pocket square in half, diagonally, three times, spreading the points a bit with each fold, then fold the triangle of what you've got left in half, laterally, and simply stuff into your pocket, points end down. Separate, push, pull, re-tuck "to taste", as the recipe books would say . . .

Cheers, I'll give it a try tomorrow!

lulz. 5. i guess thats a TF/Gucci thing....allthe suits/jackets ive seen by TF has 5. i usually keep at least one undone so it keeps it fairly normal looking.

 Do the sleeves "show" with the turtlenecks OTR the way you like them or do you have to get them altered? Also, what do you wear underneath it?

 

 Looks great BTW! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Last MTM jacket experiment, with higher armholes, very lightly padded and roped shoulders, roomier waist, and open quarters. Smoked MOP buttons.

Will probably close the quarters a bit (or make them less rounded), and try to ask them not to make the lapels so "rounded" for future commissions; but overall I'm rather happy. For the price I paid, it doesn't get much better than this.

Strangely enough, this jacket fits better on my right shoulder than on my left - it's always been the other way round.

Great combo, but the crotch area looks strange, almost as if you had put the pants on the wrong way. confused.gif

sugarbutch, where did you get those cufflinks? Super awesome.

hahaha, yeah. I have lost some more weight at the hips area and these pants have double forward pleats, so the extra fabric bunches up in funny ways when I'm not standing perfectly straight tounge.gif

 

That, and the fact that the trousers are not dressed lookaround.gif

 

clarinetplayer, thanks!  You're right in that the roped shoulders add "authority", but the main reason I chose them is because they're very flattering for the nonexistant shoulders God gave me lol8[1].gif

Today. An improvement from yesterday, let me assure you, but still not sure I'm back on whatever semblance of game I had.

Last time I tried this SC, SB suggested I try it with lighter, trou and tie. So here's my attempt. I also tried for a lighter square, but couldn't find anything that didn't clash with the gun check tie.
