HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3668  

post #55006 of 78722

HF, I love the top part, hat included - but not keen on the bottom. If it was a suit, or if the trousers were a darker shade of beige, this would have been killer IMO.

 

Where do you get your panamas, by the way?

 

-----------------------------------

 

Me today: poor quality pics, messy hank and moar seersucker. And for some reason I find my RTW pants (like this) more flattering than my MTM's. Reminds me that I should stick with RTW for trousers, even if there's no fresco to be found...

Thanks. They're not from anywhere special. This one's from a random market stall; the more battered, slightly yellower one is from Marks & Spencers.

My last vacation outfit.  The third side of the four sided tie.

All but the pleated/cuffed jeans. Good stuff. 

 

Why can't jeans just be jeans?

 

Edit: And the shoes but this is the last I will mention that I dislike those particular boat shoes.

Thanks for the info. I have been enjoying wearing the cheap Panama I got some weeks ago, so I'm looking to get something better (for the next year anyways), but have no idea where to look. Brent Black's stuff looks great, but a little pricey... a nicely blocked Cuenca should suffice for me, but finding one around these parts is quite difficult.

RDiaz, Simon Crompton just authored an article about panamas at the Financial Times' How to Spend It website that you might be interested in: http://howtospendit.ft.com/mens-fashion/31923-how-to-buy-a-panama

Good timing.

Thanks, good info smile.gif

 

Though it ends up recommending Brent Black. Not sure if I'm ready to pay even his lowest price for a hat... tongue.gif

FWIW, the panama which I'm wearing today was bought in London this May for 79 GBP - brand name Christy's, bought at a shop called Thomas Farthing, in Museum St. between Great Russell St. and Oxford, (i.e. just south of the British Museum).

This looks great, and frankly, no one can tell a suit jack is orphaned unless it is made from a ultrafine wool with some sheen, imo. What you have on is casual so it works perfectly. Im actually thinking about purchasing a suit (linen/wool blend) in the same tone, but with a navy overcheck to wear as an odd jacket.

Anyway, today:

Looks great. I'm not brave enough to wear linen everything. I'd sweat like crazy and it'd just stick to the fabric, making me look like a slinky. One or two linen items works.

Nice suit (and hat)

But in the first couple of pictures, the camera made it look like you're a predator about to go into stealth mode.

(However I am dressed, there is no danger that I will make the Style section of the Sunday NY Times - only recognized members of society, or patrons of the Frick much higher on the food chain than myself show up there.)

But, as a dress extra in this evening's comedy, I guess I'll pass.

At first, I was trying to determine what facial expression of mine was making me look predatorial, but then I realized that you were referring to the moire effect that takes place with digital photos of narrow vertical stripes - either that I am about to be transported a la "Star Trek", or that I am doing my own imitation of a work of Op Art.
