HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3517  

post #52741 of 78717
This hot sunny day called for a summer cotton tie.


For you experts out there, this suit has some roping in the shoulder. You can see on the front of the left shoulder that there is some puckering going on. Can't say that I've noticed this before but maybe I missed it. Could it just be a sign that the suit needs to be pressed, or is it just how the arm is attached?
(and yes, I know the quarters are open - the waist needs to be let out - and the button stance is higher than some like)

Great combo.  Simple suit, bold tie.  I really really like the tie.

I don't see what you are describing, but the shoulder-line does have some "pa-fuckedness" for sure.

Is it bad that I like how the quarters look? eh.gif

I agree.

I don't know whether I like the combination of a very conservative suit with just a bold tie. If you're wearing only one peacock item, it tends to attract too much attention. All people will be seeing is the bold tie, and not a coherent outfit. Either go all out or be conservative. 

 

You are wearing a similar bold tie, but you're wearing it much better, because you added a lapel pin, a colorful pocket square and a patterned jacket. When I look at you I don't see a bold tie, but a coherent outfit instead. Catch my drift?

UTTER NONSENSE! A jacket with an open-necked shirt is a far bigger "sin". But I am fully aware that this may be a USA/UK cultural difference.

I disagree. The benefit to drape and the finished look of the cuff outweigh any perceived shortening on the leg. I'm short, and almost all my trousers have cuffs and look better for it.

The shoelaces are too much when you're showing this much of them. I think I recall your saying some time ago that you have difficulty getting shoes to fit with the lacing closed up, and this just accentuates it. With closer lacing, it could be overlooked as a small touch. Plus, bar lacing looks sloppy when you can see all the business going on below.

EDIT: I should reassure you that the hank's proximity to the phone overstates its exuberance quite a bit.

You guys are soo sexy. I can't wait to get a job that requires suit or sports coat as workingwear.

What color is the windowpane in the suit?  I think it's either purple or pink, but I can't tell.

Straight-up red. It's a very faint line, though.

(edit: it was pointed out to me that I am wearing a baseball cap in this picture. It was in the hallway as I was walking in, and I tossed it on with the intention of putting it away. And then I got distracted. I would never wear a baseball cap with a tie or jacket or slacks of any sort. Promise)

+1 Though I think Donuts' tie is terrific, it clashes with the very conservative dark suit and micro striped shirt. Indeed AAS achieves a much more coherent looking outfit, though I can's say I like the overall silhouette much. Maybe it's just the picture angle?
