Rule #1 to survive on any internet forum is either to be thick-skinned or just read everything with a large dose of humour ... or preferably both. The worst way to deal with criticism however is to immediately get defensive about it. That's when people smell blood....

Tatano was given some points on his fit but his reply was "well that's great, but I don't care about what you think because I do my thing". With that attitude I can't really see why he's posting on SF in the first place. If you're really sold on your own outfit you should at least be able to argue for why you think it's good. Stich, over the last pages, is the prime example of how you do this. Everybody piled on about what he wore, but he explained his rational for why he chose the outfit he wore. People may not necessarily agree, but at least it led to a constructive discussion on things like the combination of grey and tan, dress vs. informal shoes etc etc.....

I think this would be even better had the tie been navy or brown. Right now there is almost no colour difference between suit and tie so it looks rather washed-out. Also, the textures of tie and suit are too similar - both have a fuzzy look - for also having the colours closely matched. It could perhaps have worked with a "smoother" tie.

That said, the tie is awesome and so is the suit ....

Agreed that it's good. In fact, it is worth comparing this to Tatano's fit, because superficially, they have a lot in common (red, blue, white, gingham, casual with a tie etc.), but the differences tell you quite a lot about what works and what doesn't.

This is great. In addition to all the examples posted above and having done a couple of image searches myself, I can't find any good MC examples of grey jacket + sand / camel trousers at all. So... would it be fair to say that the classic combination in this vein would be sand / camel jacket (or overcoat, of course) + grey flannels (or similar)? Why does this work, but the reverse, not so much? Is it simply convention, or is convention here the expression of some kind of aesthetic 'perfection'.

The new chinos look and fit great Stitches. I like the SC and trouser combo.

 

IMO I would just hem the trousers with no break, cuffing them like you did seems to make the leg opening smaller which makes your feet look bigger. If you wanted to make them more versatile and casual you can get them taken up but keep the original hem. I do it with my jeans.

AcuteStyle- when matching goes right

tatano- When matching goes wrong

 

 

simple as that. No snark there. EmartJ's comment was assholish yes, but it does not remove from the fact that the outfit was awful.

 

Besides I believe EliodA in your short stay here you have given your fair share of jabs here too.

Welcome and congratulations on taking the plunge ! It is not the world´s sharpest picture, so it is rathe difficult to give you any detailed feedback, but the jacket looks a tad small (notice the pulling at the button) and the left shoulder also looks rather odd...Colourwise it looks pretty solid to me.

Pingson - cheers.gif ma man!

Errone - Brought it up at the board meeting this morning, and a decision has been made. The pants will be hemmed, and big T will pay the alteration costs. I think thats what some call a "win win."

Well, "tad small" might be understatement of the year. That's a pretty noticeable X right around the button. It suggests to me that the jacket is quite tight, But it could also be exaggerated by the rather odd posture in the photo. There is also something odd going on across the chest on the left side (your right).
