HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3421

More vintage and 2nd hand: A 1940´s smoking from a fleamarket in Skåne, an old Borsalino hat, a Stenström shirt and the bow tie I had when I graduated 1970.

The event: A Gatsby-party at A.Marchesan. One of the best vintage shops for gentlemen in the world.

Pretty good, thanks. Not posting any fits right now because I am visiting a university in Denmark and they are all very informal here, so just wearing jeans + shirt every day.

CBS?

This. MYork, please stop posting your fit questions in every thread. People are happy to provide feedback, but not if you bomb every thread with it.

Albert, that's brilliant.  (Please send pictures to Denmark!)

Do there really have to be so many photos of something so bad?

Albert I never considered thrifting until you came along.

Now, this is excellent - because the pattern on the shirt is relatively subdued but also very different from the suit's pattern. And the suit is, again, wonderful.

Apart from that you look lovely.

 

Thanks for your reply.  It's a new tux.  The pants came pre-hemmed with a special taping attached to the inside hem, not sure what that was.  It didn't come with a matching waistcoat, which I would have preferred.  

It's size 52.  I should have tried 50 but the salesguy pinned me at 52, made me try it on, said it fit, and was in such total control of the situation I didn't ask to try on size 50.  52 felt very comfortable, to be fair.  The pants fit but not snugly like I prefer.  I don't need to wear braces but it helps a lot with keeping the pants at one level on my waist.

The shirt's a disaster I know.  It's size 43.  its a sack. 41 fits me perfectly in the shoulders but its asphyxiation in the neck. 42 and 43 are pretty much the same in the shoulders but 43 is more comfortable neck wise.  Shirt needs a date with the tailor, I know.

Don't talk about the shoes! :)   I don't have proper black-tie footwear.  Those oxfords will have to do :(

Thanks again for your suggestions.

You are correct, of course. but the Tailors Thread is dead on a saturday evening. :)  plus yesterday I really could not find it when I scrolled through.  Wouldn't normally post this here.  my apologies.

Thrifting is a very fascinating sport. It´s like hunting, fishing or gold digging. It cost time, not money. And you need a good dry cleaner and a taylor for minor adjustments. But if you can find taylor made suits or so called premium brand garments for $1, $10, $50 instead of $1.000 - $5.000 you can easily afford the taylor. Good luck in fishing.

 

 

Some people think it is a little dirty with second hand clothes. But do they have the same feeling about laying between the sheets in a luxury hotel?

Apologies for the terribly low lighting (sport coat is more beige in light). I need to hem these jeans about 1/4–1/2".
