HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3351  

post #50251 of 78717

Yeah, there's room at the top front, perhaps because I asked for a roomier chest. I shouldn't have done such a thing with MTM (bespoke would have been a different animal, as the excess could have been manipulated to drape gracefully). I think it would look better if the chest was leaner, and the shoulders wider (at the top of the armscye only - I'm not talking about point-to-point measurement).

Just noticed my pocket is damaged! On top of that the sunny weather of yesterday is gone, it's such a gloomy day. Luckily it's Friday!

X-post The Friday Challenge.

Today's attire was determined by the Friday Challenge here. The theme for today was "breaking rules" - at least the local ones over here. Requirements were for wearing a white shirt and a red tie with a sports jacket - extra violation points for black footwear. I've added the supreme sin of wearing navy blue odd trousers with my sports jacket - a big no-no over here as well.

Ironic to say, 99.9% of my colleagues, friends, and perfect strangers wouldn't notice the difference between my usual mode of attire, and this allegedly transgressive outfit. Whether that is because I'm always "transgressive", or that the "rules" of SF are too obscure to be followed, I leave to the discretion of the viewer.

Blazer & trousers - BB
Shirt - Ike Behar
Tie - PRL
Cufflinks - Penhaligon's
PS - no name brand
Boots - Cheaney, via Harrod's

When I first got this jacket I was happy with the shoulder expression, but the more I look at it, the more I dislike the overall silhouette. Can't quite figure out what to do to make future commissions look better, perhaps it's just my body shape. I was thinking some more shoulder extension, leaner chest, less padding, fuller sleeves and more closed quarters, but I can't be sure about the results.

Diaz gotta agree -  way below yr usual stellar fits.  The silhouette is more  morning-dress-at-Royal-Ascot than 2013 Madrid.  The roped and pagoda'd shoulder is mannered; the  baggy-legged plaid could be from my grandfather's closet; and worse still the  black oxfords and white shirt shouldn't be in the same room with that beautiful summery Drakes? square.

Thank you, Derek. I found them at Harrod's a couple of years ago - within hours of landing at Heathrow - and searched the town for anything better, for well over a week, and couldn't find their equal, so I bought them.

Diaz, I think the top half looks pretty good--its the bottom of the jacket that looks a bit strange IMO.

The only thing I can conclusively say I'd change is closing the quarters a wee bit. Don't go all the way, but they are Liverano-style open right now, and that isn't working for you. I also think the jacket may be a bit long, which could lend a bit to the "morning dress" look that Pliny mentioned. Beyond that... I don't really know what else to change frown.gif I'm wondering if the button stance should be moved up a bit to add a bit more to the waist suppression, but I'm not sure frown.gif
