They're darker, that was just the photo/lighting. Sort of a mid-green.
Really? You think that looks good? I have to say I am surprised that this looks received any likes at all, guys, rather than some serious advice about how to avoid such a hideous mixture of clashing colours. In my view, the suit might work with a completely different shirt, something much lighter in hue, and an entirely different tie and square. But I am not even sure about that - although I'd have to see it IRL to know.
(PS: just read it was for a bet, I guess that makes it different...)
Thanks, FM. I'm versed on the rules...hence the bet.
Diaz this silhouette is excellent; shoulders are cut close; like the slope too; waist and quarters suit yr build perfectly. Wouldn't this look great in a Fox chalk stripe? Or in say a light Fresco-style cloth perhaps with a little less roping.
Haha, that's ok, to each his own! I missed it was a bet, though. What was the bet about?
Well, since we are discussing matters of style here, and this is the 'classic menswear' forum, an outfit like this is sure to raise some eyebrows. Nothing wrong with some colour or pattern per se, it's how it is done that counts.
What shoes are those? They look like a mix between boat shoes and penny loafers and driving moccasins. They look very comfortable.
Thanks! Yeah, widening the wrap gave the jacket some shape again. But this was MTM and it's a hit and miss, because the factory never gets it right and the next jacket could be completely different. In fact this one has a couple problems: back balance is slightly long and waist shaping is placed too low, so the vents, while not gaping constantly, "like" to do it. I started saving for bespoke a few months back, and perhaps by september/october I will be able to start with my first commission, hope it works out well! I've already chosen a new tailor.
And yep, I agree a flannel chalk stripe DB would definately be awesome
yeah Diaz pity cos that cuts looking good
