Very nice shit, tie, jacket combo Conrad. Nice to see braces again although I'm not sure how much I like those with the rest of the colors your wearing.

Thanks man. Yeah, I think a brown + wider braces would have looked better

Crat, digging it, the shirt fabric looks awesome, what is it? Chambray, I assume.

Conrad, that's very nice. Well done.

Not that this matters to anyone but me but the poster that I couldn't recall before was "Phat Guido". Guy had a real nice sense of style and everything fit perfectly! Haven't seen a post from him in ages.

Apparently he changed jobs a couple of years back and doesn't really wear suits anymore.

^^^^ Thanks. Even his casual fits were quite nice. Fortunately there are still plenty of guys on here to learn from and emulate.

Seriously, holy crap that all fits you well, Butler.

Did you deliberately tie your tie like that?
If so, do you really think it looks better than the 'proper' way, i.e. with the thin blade hidden behind the front blade?

Interesting that Phat Guido's name came up in a recent post too. He had a range of excellent looking suits, almost always in dark blue or light navy shades but often with some sort of textural interest, or windowpane, etc. and they were usually cut to fit him very well.

Unfortunately he also had a habit of frequently buggering up the look with gimmicks like poorly tied ties, wrist trash, sweaters tied around shoulders over suit etc. - all things which I frequently say don't add interest, they drag a look down due to a theme of desperation for attention. Good looking outfits should speak for themselves without needing such gimmicks. Timotune is a more recent example who I have given a lot of shit for in the past but he seems to have mostly dropped those gimmicks and as a result is one of my favourite posters these days.

I will mention once again Brunello Cuccinelli admitting in an interview that he has to tie and re- tie his tie several times each morning to get the right look of 'studied nonchalance' which is of course an oxymoron attempted by morons. Just do it properly FFS and get on with it. If your jacket fits perfectly a sloppy tie isn't going to improve your look, and if your jacket fits poorly a sloppy tie is just going to make you look even more like a schlub.

He still posts lots of casual fits on Instagram.

No and yes

 

I never liked the look of a perfectly symmetrical or "proper" tie. Don't believe I've used the keeper in years... it's more or less a personal thing.

 

Dressing with elegance in mind and use of colors are what's most important for me. A bit of imperfection can add character to an outfit as long as it doesn't cry for attention.

 

Jake from The Armoury is a good example of "studied nonchalance". Absolutely love his fits. That boy is on a different level compared to the abomination that is #sprezzatura and modern #menswear
