post #54691 of 78717

Asked to visit a school near the coast to do some teaching on a hot summer's day...

... means there's the opportunity to slope off to a local beach at the end of the day, losing the jacket & tie for a very British seaside paddle...

Don, a lot of people with wider frames don't try to practice dressing well due to them thinking they don't look good due to the shilouette. That's what I've come to believe. Way to prove them wrong, very wrong.

 

Hope that's taken as a compliment, as it's meant to be.

BB? As in Brooks Brothers?

Is this real?

It's probably Brooks Brothers Black Fleece, which I believe is designed by Thom Browne.

I had never heard of Black Fleece.

Went to their web site. There is some truly awful stuff there:

Lighten up.

BB calls it fun because it references their "fun shirts" which were patched together from a bunch of different fabrics. You guys sound like no fun.

Uniqlo doesn't sell them anymore.  They are regular fit as opposed to Uniqlo's slim fit.  They still sell a vintage chino in regular fit, but I find that these are more refined than the vintage chino.  

 

The sizing is even and odd waist sizes with inseams that are usually 34 and over.  They do free hemming, but I took mine to my tailor because Uniqlo doesn't do cuffs surprisingly.  

 

I find their slim fit pants too slim.  The slim fit also have spandex in them which I despise.  The colors are nice though.

I'm not going to pretend that I don't love this.  I do.  I'm 95% sure I would never wear this as a suit, but as separates I might fool with this.  Cost too much anyway.

this suit has the potential to be one of the best lookin examples of zegna I've seen--

to my eye, if you were to shorten sleeves slightly to expose 1/4" of shirt, slim sleeves ever so slightly/ fingertip pinch, and slim pantlegs a touch, you've got a f*cking winner here.

Anyone want to buy my KW tiebar? Was taking pictures to show the level of awesomeness and 'unsnagability' and snagged my KW Grenadine. baldy[1].gifcrackup[1].gif

 

$30 shipped. (I know it's not the right place for it but we did JUST talk about it)

btw, is anyone else thoroughly enjoying the fact that there are hugo boss ads all over SF. i love that they are advertising here.

Since we're talking about it...these are some new fall 2013 releases from Brooks Brothers Black Fleece line.  I like these a lot.  Thom Browne is the designer if you're wondering.  The proportions may not be to everyones liking, but I appreciate there pattern choices and their willingness to play a bit with traditional menswear norms.

You mean as opposed the Jos A. Banks ad I'm currently seeing.  Aren't the ads tailored to the viewer?  What does that say about me?  patch[1].gif
