I am not a SW&D person and know almost nothing about "street wear" or denim. I only own two pairs of jeans (both identical, basic Levis 505's). But even I know the jeans in the above picture are, IN FACT, the worst jeans in the entire world. You should burn these tonight. I am not kidding.
With the right pants (anything other than jeans), you would have had a nice outfit.
Based on the rest of his outfit and the way he carries himself I'm assuming they are supposed to be ironically unfashionable, so unfashionable that they are fashionable.post #51738 of 787235/24/13 at 9:38pmQuote:That's a LOT of FU for a full suit, much less 3 pieces (says the guy who just did stripes on stripes on stripes, to generally dismal acclaim). Don't get me wrong, I would welcome -- nay, relish -- the opportunity to take that suit for a spin or two. And the good news is the lapels are manageable and the gorge is in the right place (hard to tell where the button point is). But if groupthink blue suit dark tie is your thing, then this suit isn't for you.Originally Posted by Pieceofsand
I recently acquired a vintage glen plaid 3 piece in heavy wool, tweed-like fabric; and I was just wondering whether if it's excessively loud. I was hoping I could keep this for the fall/snow seasons here in Norther Michigan. The item was relatively cheap, keep or return?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
OTOH, to me, if "relatively cheap" means "won't impact my weekly budget", keep it and have a crapload of fun trying to rock it.post #51739 of 787235/24/13 at 11:14pmpost #51740 of 787235/25/13 at 12:05ampost #51741 of 787235/25/13 at 12:29amQuote:

I'm a big guy as well, 6 foot 2 to be exact and us big buggers need to find someone who will either make a longer sleeve or go the MTM route. MTM shirts are a piece of cake.post #51745 of 787235/25/13 at 3:03am

I was born in Alabama and raised in the South, but currently live in New York City. Living in NYC, I feel no compulsion to adhere to the rules of "business" and "country" dress, but wouldn't mind learning more about it. Anything goes in NYC. I understand that may not be the case in this forum. I've grown accustom to this freedom and will continue for the most part to exercise it. This will lead to the juxtaposition of items that are thought to be contradictory by some, but I hope that the outfit as a composition can be analyzed outside of confines of "the rules." I understand that many have a hard time making this distinction as modes of dress are historical and riddled with tradition. I've just never been big on tradition.
The pants are vintage PRL denim trousers from the 80s. I spent about a year trying to find a pair in my size. I've gotten several strongly negative reactions about them since I've bought them. I like them though and have no intention of burning them. I think they look much better when Ironed, but as I mentioned I had no electricity yesterday morning.
The most concerning thing about the comments to me was that I have no idea why you don't like the jeans. Ok, they are horrendous and atrocious, but why? Are pleats on jeans the issue or are pleats in general the issue (that's a whole other discussion)? Is it the drape of the material? the taper of the leg? the rise? I have no idea. Again I like them, but would love your input as to what in particular about them is atrocious.
Lastly, I agree the sleeves are too short. I purchased many shirts before I realized this. I do not have the funds to replace them all, so I roll with it. I'm slowly replacing things. Given that I often wear them under a jacket or with the sleeves rolled up, I'm ok with it for now.
Thanks again for all of your feedback. Best.
