Barbarian!  I hope there are at least some socks hiding in there!

 

(Nice to be individual though, isn't it?) ;)

Yep, loafer socks. I'll happily bear the title of barbarian, after all, someone has the be it.

You should take a look at Epaulet's Rudy fit.

This is awful and should not be condoned.

This..

 

Pleated jeans with cuffs...

 

The shirt with those jeans..

 

I know I said to each his own. But good lord.

 

Can I make a request for Oreg' to do the same here as he did earlier for the other fits? With the photoshops?

The green color is amazing in real life btw, it's unlike any other I've seen before, and has tiny flecks of orange, red, brown and blue in it that can only be seen from closeup.

 

I've got these. Great pair. Far more versatile than I realized. This is up there with khaki and grey in my book.

I don't cuff my jeans, and I never will. Single pleats are just a practical choice, it think it helps slim down the quads.

I knew as soon as I saw this, that it would generate extremes of reactions so I'm not surprised by the differing opinions posted since. Personally, I love the shirt/tie combination, but am less keen on this particular windowpane. But the shirt/tie combo are very much a tongue-in-cheek resurrection of an 80s vibe that I really dig. Navy suit rather than that ?charcoal windowpane and this would be right up my alley. It's not a "serious" or stealthy kind of vibe, but that shirt/tie combo is beautifully brash and cheeky.

Love the outfit enough to not even spoiler code it: great colours, textures & fit. I'm only amazed that it's cold enough for you to actually wear it where you are; even over here in the UK it's warm & sunny!

For me, your outfits have a wider standard deviation of quality than almost anyone else's here. Today's is really nice: good colours/item and a more-than-acceptable fit.

Doing a little teaching today. Full length pic more indicative of actual colours; the close-up got a bit of wonky colour balance/brightness I think:

My girlfriend is begging me to get that jacket from suit supply. It looks nice but not quite sure. Looks like you like it?

First I apologize in advance for my bad english and I hope you can understand what I mean.

 

I start to build up a quality warderobe 6 months ago and now I am still in a phase where I try much and make some mistakes. I get many stuff from paisley and other members of the german style forum (e.g. ~ 10 jackets, 5 suits, some shirts and trousers) and buy some good stuff on ebay (e.g. A Paul Stuart suit, An Oxxford clothes sports coat, A Zegna sports coat, the corneliani sports coat from todays pictures).

I proceed by the trial and error method. I show an outfit in the german style forum and since one month here. I am happy about every feedback, especially about the fit of my suits and sport coats. My taylor is happy to see me once or twice in the week.

So I hope you can help me in the future to improve my classic style.

^ Totally understood; and I think that once your style & wardrobe settles down, you'll probably consistently look as good as you do today.

Yeah, I really like it, esp. considering the price. The quarter-lining makes it very breathable on warmer days like today, too. I probably had the waist taken in a half inch or so too much, but I'll get that remedied at some point in the future when I feel sufficiently motivated (maybe once the seasons change). I'm still at the stage of experimenting with different outfits to see just where it fits within my wardrobe (I tend to do this quite a bit in the first couple of weeks after getting a new jacket or suit), but so far it's a versatile addition. So far, it goes nicely with all shades of white, cream, beige, brown, and also darker blues. I think that tends to be the test of new item: not whether it's nice in and of itself (many things are), but whether it slots nicely into your existing preferences/wardrobe. For me, it certainly does.

That's great. I think the only thing deterring me from SS is that, although some people say that they do change the button stance when you go from R to L, it doesn't look like it. It looks like the button stance on a 38L is an entire 3cm too high for me.
