I think some people (like you) pull this off, although I think you wear sportcoats and jeans sans tie, but when you add a tie to it, you need to be Andy Warhol (a well known, kooky artist) our Ralph Lauren ( a well known designer with some kooky personal outfits). When you are simply Claghorn in South Korea, you look bad.

Growing up in the NYC area in the 60's and being influenced by my friends older brothers coming home from prep schools and Ivy league colleges, we did the combination of jeans, tweed, corduroy or blue blazers and tie. It was during the transition from a more formal society dress code to the late 60's "anything goes". We still had to wear a tie to dances, etc., but we could wear jeans now for the first time. It was comfortable yet you were also part of 'the club" so to speak. In the late 70's when I used to run into Andy Warhol at the Museum of American Folk Art events. We were about the only two guys wearing BDOC, blue blazers, rep ties under 70 years old. However, we were the only two guys wearing Levis.

I still like the look today, with a tie. Especially knit silk or cashmere. Like a lot of great sportswear, I think it has a true all-American pedigree.

Today's fit. Spring has apparently exploded onto my fit.

In other news, I did a rigorous regression analysis with multiple Taylor polynomials and Monte Carlo modeling analysis. It turns out I can establish, to a scientific degree of certainty, that exactly ZERO fucks were given today.

Is that a contrast-collar shirt?

I don't think the light tie works with this, Ian. Probably not enough contrast between jacket and trousers, too, at least judging by the picture.

Spring is finally here in Vienna!

I hope you'll consider a roomier, longer trouser for your next suit. Otherwise, very nice.

Friday nite date nite...but my girlfriend was busy, so I decided to take the wife out.  My god those pants are way too long, and the left looks longer than the right!  I swear they didn't look that bad when I put them on; taking them to tailor this week to remedy.   The shirt is actually a very bright green/white stripe, best representation is in the wrist shot.  I need to get better at dressing as well as photography.  Yes, once i saw the scuff in my shoes (in the pic) i polished them.  I am trying to learn here, I appreciate input.  I know this needs work, but not quite sure where.  Socks too matchy?   PS--I am still quite new here, but I feel I can be honest with this group.  I'm gonna say about a half a dozen fucks were given this evening.

Overly open quarters and slight x at the buttoning point due to a small balance problem on the jacket, I hope I can get that sorted out because other than that I'm pretty happy with it.

 

 

 

For some reason those lapels remind me of this:

 

 

It looks great on you though! smile.gif

I would go a bit too wide over a bit too narrow any day. Find it flattering for me as well smile.gif

 

I just wish the points were not as rounded. And I think a higher gorge could be even more flattering.

I wouldn't be able to pull off such wide lapels, but it does seem to suit you quite well. Indeed, the jacket would look perfect with a slightly higher gorge and without the rounded points! 

 

You should really look into ordering your next jacket in this colour though, would be perfect for the peacock thread:

lolz. I think I'll pass lol8[1].gif

 

Lapels are not that wide, just 10 cm. I'm just a short mofo. They work because what you don't see in my pics is a rather large head tongue.gif
