I'd echo the comments of others that a more tapered leg would probably suit the truncated length better. Or at least, confirm its deliberateness to others. Mind you, sockless loafers does that anyway.

 

The whole discussion about trouser length - and more generally SF's attention to detail in this regard - reminds me of a description I read in a book the other day, of an unfortunate chap with OCD. I found the relevant excerpt online (couldn't copy paste for some reason, so took a screenshot instead):

A cautionary tale to avoid worrying about these things too much...!

I like that you're asking this question of people.

I was going to post that link myself, though I guessed someone would beat me to it. It's interesting, isn't it! And a lot more time-consuming to do it that way than a quick snap, crop & upload!

 

 

 

Lucky Monday; had my annual check-up at the dentist, and all remains A-OK. All the more reason to grin:

So far, they seem to have no interest in answering it. frown.gif

Very nice SC and shoes! Have you tried creasing these chinos? I know's it's not everyone's taste, but it might help preventing how rumpled they look at the moment. Unless that's what you're going for!

this. which is why i think its a great question. if you cant even put forth a general idea of what you were trying to accomplish, it usually means you need to take a step back and think about what it is you are trying to do with your style. not just throw items together and hope for the best.

It's indeed a great question, but do you think it would boil down to something like: 'who am I, and who do I want to be?' Your style is a representation of you are as a person, so that question cannot be answered easily for most. Of course I might be thinking in a too abstract manner, and sugar might've meant something entirely different with that question.

Asking the question is only the start...

I do normally crease my chinos, but these are closer to jeans than chinos. They're not denim (I think they're a cotton/linen blend, from memory), but do have jean-style hip & rear pockets and seams, so I don't think they'd look right with a crease. They do need a wash & press though as they're looking particularly crumpled at the moment. I press them "sideways" (like you would jeans) so there isn't a centre crease even then. But the pressing neatens them up a bit, for sure.

Re. "The SB Question", as it should henceforth be known.

 

It's certainly worth considering.  I do occasionally think "today I need to look serious business", or "today I'm going to look sharp, but keep it a little casual".  But like Monkey says, sometimes that's equivalent to asking oneself "who and what am I?", which is a rather expansive question.  Maybe an easier way to do it is to ask "who do I look like?" when adding the pieces together of a morning.  Not in terms of "I want to look like SugarButch" (I totally do, maybe, in the winter anyway), but more "do I look like an estate agent, a banker, a professor, a businessman, a movie star, an extra from Miami Vice, a style guru or a douchebag, or a style guru who is a douchebag?".  Etc.

 

In the mean time, that's a rocking whistle there, Roger.  Might I suggest that the skirts are just a teensy bit generous?  Perhaps it's the unfastened button - a SF standard, but not a rule I consider totally binding with DBs.  (Go on, bring on the stones, I don't care!)  Anyway, small thing.  It looks awesome.

Today. It's a bit hot in Mexico, but some clouds are coming, hope this brings the temperature a few degrees down. And a different pic... bigstar[1].gif

It could be a philosophical answer or something as simple as, "I want to look like Gordon Gekko."

Glad the Holdfast Grin is back. The whole face blotted out thing was creepy.

You don't though.  I think he might be a touch taller. :)

 

Betel, great fit - that jacket is particularly inspiring.

Thanks Stitchy,

And thank you also mimo.  I want to be sure I understand the 'skirts' comment - is it the bottom portion of the jacket that looks like it needs to be taken in?  I'll add full fontal shot (ahem) to show the fit better:
