I wore a white silk PS with a white linen/wool SC I have last Friday night. Everybody liked the look.
Last day. School is officially out for summer. And this is what I wore today. Linen pants and jacket. Seersucker shirt and bowtie. I didn't wear the jacket most of the day and had my sleeves rolled up as I cleaned my classroom. The pants are too short even IMO. I will definitely be taking them to my tailor to be lengthened. And, yes, the black watch watch strap. Also, my first attempt at the pink shirt challenge.

Heh, I think I understand. Tassels look somewhat effeminate for some people. But Carmina has some beauties in the form of tassel loafers that are hard to resist!
This is great.
X-Post from Luxire. First pair of pleated pants. They look gooooodd.
Epaulet Burgundy Calfskin Belt
Sam Hober DFIH tie
Kent Wang Sport Coat.
And I know the tie is too low. It's a DFIH and it's hard to re-tie those suckers, so I just left it for the quick pic.
I feel ya. That was during a size and last comaprison. I sent those loafers back and now I miss them. My girlfriend HATED them.
It's a Napoli model, yes. Moderate alterations to the jacket: a little tidying up of the back and through the waist, together with slimming the sleeves and shortening the length of the jacket. The trousers simply needed hemming. I suspect I'll get more SS stuff in future, as I'm happy with the outcome of both this and a Havana jacket I bought at the same time.
Regarding the sleeves, they're on the margins of acceptability to me (I tend to like suit sleeves to be roughly the same length as my shirts rather than showing lots of cuff) so we didn't touch them. In hindsight, they could use taking up 1/8" but it was a very marginal call. The shirt I'm wearing in that photo is about 1/4" or so shorter than my preferred length; with that length, 1/8" cuff shows with that jacket, which is my ideal. Also in hindsight, the jacket was probably taken in half an inch too much at the waist, given the amount of junk I tend to carry in my inside pockets. At some point, I might take the jacket to my regular tailor to get both the waist let out fractionally and sleeves shortened similarly. Depends on how proactive I am, really. Knowing me with this sort of minor tailoring thing, I'll probably get round to it in a couple of years.
Went for the security guard look today haha. I had an impromptu meeting and didn't have trousers - I'm on holiday - so I popped over to M&S and bought some really cheap grey trousers. The first photo is a shitty phone photo, but the rest are good quality. Decent full fit pics will some soon, I promise! Let me know what you think!
