@Pliny: Great outfit! I really want a jacket like that. 

post #55323 of 78717

Same here. I'd rather have it made to measure at Paul Stuart in NYC.

Their Canadian / Natural Shoulder has always worked for me personally.

Custom does offer greater detail, but who has time for all the fittings ?

 

At 6'9" I can see your challenges, and they are greater than mine.

Looking put-together is an expensive and time consuming thing to do, for tall and big men. 

 

FWIW - In the past I have found excellent looking ties, extra long by Robert Talbott.

Mondays should always be 'serious dressing' and you nailed it well imo.

Summer Navy ( true navy) suits with white buttons,is pretty snazzy! ,,,, and allows you to use the jacket 

in additional ways, with other trousers.  (White especially ).

A toast of champagne to Pierre Cardin and rope shoulders !

Mica: I'm guessing that one of your series of replies above is about my suit; thank you! And yes, I do use it more frequently as a summer blazer rather than as a full suit.

 

A couple of suggestions:

- please use the Quote function to make it clear who you're replying to. Otherwise it's a total guessing game as to what on earth you're referring to in any given post.

- the Multi quote feature will make your life - and our reading - much easier when you want to reply to a series of posts in one go. If you do use it, it's nice to then spoilercode any images, again to help readability by compressing the thread.

 

Welcome to the board.

Welcome to the board.

Ok thanks for the tip.  Also, you can formalize a navy blazer always with a simple white square, picking up the white buttons.

The devil is in the details.

1) I've learned so much from this site, it isn't quantifiable verbally. The most satisfying thing I've realized here, is what I really like on me; what MY style is. I think that is really the essence of being a member here (at least for me it is).
2) When I look at my closet now, there are very few items that don't fit the way I'd like. Those items are heading to the tailor this summer though in preparation for Fall/Winter.
3) When other people have "misses" with their fits, it helps me look at what I do and helps with my progression.
4) Watching other members progress is one of the coolest aspects of this community. Sure there are drama queens, red-asses, and fragile egos here, but there are some guys that have made excellent progress developing their own style. This can only come from good feedback and taking it to heart. InStitches, Timotune, and mktitsworth come to mind right away. I bet one day, we'll even see Stitches with a PS...one day.
5) I came here initially because I started caring about how I presented myself in and outside of my career. I feel like I've come a long toward that goal, and have progressed to where I'm proud to have found my groove sartorially, even though I still have plenty of progression left. Which is why I still come here and see what the other members are wearing.
6) The last, and by far the most important thing I have learned is that Derek is a phenomenal kisser. Seriously...very good...with a tender touch...and stuff.

Thanks for your post Ebonyman, I appreciated reading it.

 

 Let's see...under your name it says "spooning DerekS" and you post this comment.

 

 I gotta ask...what does this mean?

I disclaim any knowledge of DerekS's ability to osculate well, nor have I ever had the privilege to spoon with him - don't blame me for this . . .
