HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3273  

post #49081 of 78724
Due to the mental caprice of one Mr. Sugarbutch, my "casual Friday" attire is now my "casual Thursday" attire - Friday, I'll attempt the navy suit CBD challenge - or at least wear a navy suit (CBD is not my specialty, as has been evidenced by my postings).

Sports jacket, shirt, tie, and trousers - BB
PS - no name brand
Shoes - Finsbury, Paris
Overcoat - Joseph Abboud
Scarf - Johnston's of Elgin
Hat - Tesi

Depending on how vivid the tie's base colour is in real life I'd say no, it's ok. I'm not a big fan of edged linen squares personally though and I think here the straight line the purple edge creates is a bit close in form to the lines on the tie.
 

Tie's really lovely, where's it from?

Thanks for the advice! The color of the tie in the picture is relatively accurate, so it's not that vivid. It's a Drake's grenadine, a great alternative to the staple solid navy grenadine.

I'm wearing Drakes today! :)

 

Love the cream colour of the stripes on your grenadine. I'm eagerly awaiting this sam hober striped grenadine to arrive at my office in a week or two.

That's a nice one too, I've been eyeing it for a while. I'm a little hesitant about ordering from Hober though, as I'm not sure what kind of duties I should expect when ordering stuff from outside of the EU. I see you're located in Belgium, would you mind letting me know what the costs are when your tie arrives?

post #49086 of 78724

Yeah, it was a concern for me too but I'm quite confident that I'll get away without charges. The sam hober site says that with regular shipping customers rarely get hit by it whereas with expedited shipping (via DHL) they're quite likely to. I've ordered plenty of stuff from Kent Wang before without incurring customs charges, all shipped via regular post. I guess the occasional customs fees are inevitable eventually.

Love teh square choice here, but not the tie (both colour & having stripes). Today's fit is much better.

I wish I had the wardrobe space to hang rather than fold my shirts.

The whole outfit looks great; your clothes don't just fit in a mechanical sense; the seem to suit the way you carry yourself (from the little we can tell from still photos).

Out of curiosity, who makes your suits? I suppose it might just be the nice pose/photo, but there's a subtle flair to how it looks here that I like.




Haven't been dressing formally this week, so my pics will be confined to the casual thread, but there's some good stuff being posted recently in this thread. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I guess it's part of the game. I've been mostly lucky so far, although a year and a half ago I got charged with a fee of nearly 50% of the item's value. Btw, just randomly noticed you posted in MFA, assuming you post under the same name there. I look at it from time to time, but the level of the outfits that are posted there is quite low.

I'm a moderator and frequent contributor there, yeah.

 

It's unfair to judge MFA by the same yardstick really - it's a very different audience. It's primary demographic are 16-25 year old American students with little-to-no money. They usually visit to learn how to go from cargo-shorts, graphic t-shirt and maybe a fedora to being able to express themselves confidently and articulately - be that in a professional, street-wear or other sphere. There's a lot of really knowledgeable and helpful people there, a lot in-depth discussion about all aspects of fashion and some really great dressers too. It's just a very different place than styleforum.
