My office at work, where I take most pictures, just doesn't allow me to take full-size pictures - it's too small (I say increase spending on higher education so I can get a bigger office mwink[1].gif )

Anyway, just for you Sticthy I snapped a (horribly crappy) iPhone photo when I got home so you can see top and bottom in one pic cheers.gif

I think what you're seeing is just two similar physiques, which leads to the silhouette looking somewhat similar. I wish mine looked as good as his, but thanks for the compliment tongue.gif

 

 

The high contrast made today's ensemble rather hard to capture, but anyways:

 

 

 

I really need to get a lighter blue DB blazer made. This is way too dark.

Boom, people need to see this again.

 

Very good.

After looking at their website and seeing it, I like the way your devious mind works. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

All these interesting-looking Suit Supply outfits are making me likely to try to find the time to pop into one of their shops in London next time I'm there, at least to see whether the fit works on me. I'm not generally a fan of overly short or tight outfits, but going by the size measurements the I wonder if maybe their regular length in their DB cut might just work out fine. I don't know when I'll next have to go to London (it's not really my favourite place to be), but I'll try to fit in a brief side-trip to one of their shops to try on items in person.

Thanks for the feedback; it's always interesting to read how others perceive an outfit. I have to say I would not personally like how I would look in the items you suggest, within the context of yesterday's outfit. I like black shoes a lot, but not within the rustic colour scheme of that specific outfit (brown wingtips would have been fine, mind you), and orange socks are definitely not on my shopping list. In any case, the bow tie and checked jacket already added a tremendous amount of uncommon visual interest, making orange (or heavily orange-accented) socks in addition too OTT even for me. smile.gif

This is nice, and I'd like it even more with a lighter coloured square (beige/cream, or pale browns, or maybe some sky-blue accents, etc). The autumnal colours pull it down to winter, whereas the tie & trouser try to lift it up to Spring.

Isn't it nice to eventually have some nicer weather. Still a bit brisk for a panama for me, but I applaud the sentiment!

I generally dig your style a lot; it seems to suit you well. For me, the blazer on this one is a bit too short (and maybe too lean across the chest), even within the context of your style. As a suit, it would be a fine length for the abbreviated cut you like, as the uniformity of colour would camouflage the shorter length just a little. But here, it feels quite stark to me.

Are the buttons in a 6x1 arrangement, or is it a 6x2 buttoned unconventionally and straining open at the middle a bit? It's difficult to tell which from the photo. FWIW, I think a 6x2 style, buttoned conventionally, would flatter your build more than a 6x1 keystone, if you do go ahead and order the new one you mentioned. I like the overal outfit apart from that detail, by the way. The patterned trousers seem well-tamed to me, which is a very difficult thing to do.

 

 

 

In a bit of a rush to get ready today, so easy choices only. That makes it a little lacking in interest, but hey-ho:

Agreed. The suit is very nice.

In fact, his whole album is worth a look: http://www.styleforum.net/g/a/361157/hof-what-are-you-wearing-right-now-part-iii/

This is something I've always wondered ever since seeing American tourists for the first time when I was little: why do North-Americans wear running shoes under outfits that are not meant for running?

 

This is not meant as a critique of your outfit, but more as an honest question.

Thanks for the feedback. It is a 6x2 buttoned unconventionally, because I hate the high button stance. Strains a bit because it'd need a bit more cloth at the hips to be buttoned like that. I probably shouldn't have bought the jacket due to the high buttoning point, but I got carried away because it's so rare to find a RTW DB around here. If I get one made, I'd ask for 6x2 buttoning with wider lapels and a lower stance smile.gif

I am not an apologist of this "style" but I think mainly because it is quite comfy )

P.S. In fact I've seen a lot of parisien wearing sneakers or keds with jackets or coats, so it is not just North American "style" )

Fair enough, I though it might be a certain style or something. Are running shoes that much more comfortable than say, a nice pair of "dressy" sneakers?

Seen as we're generalizing anyway, I think Japanese tourists tend to wear sneakers, but Chinese tourists do seem to wear running shoes. It's hard to say anything about Europe, because it's more diverse than the US, but I hardly see Europeans wearing actual running shoes as a part of their daily outfit, but they do wear a lot sneakers.

SC is PRL/Corneliani, tie is Zegna, belt is Trafalgar, socks are Pantherella; rest is unremarkable and/or unknown.

Today's fit would not be approved, and in any event, I didn't have time for shots.
