As someone who has a number of suits (both RTW and MTM) with trousers equipped with both belt loops and brace buttons, I have to say that I like the flexibility of having the option of wearing a belt or braces. Often enough, with my shirt drawers full of striped shirts, the task of coordinating braces, shirt and tie becomes untenable - choosing to wear a suit with a belt is simply easier.

That being said, I have a number of suit (four from New & Lingwood, and four from Paul Stuart) which are not equipped with belt loops - this can affect my choice of shirt/tie worn with the suits in question, which it would not, had I the option of wearing a belt.

I agree, though, that the fit of trousers designed for braces is different than those for belts - trousers made for braces assume a somewhat looser fit around the waist, in my experience.

Your dedication to coordination is superhuman, Señor Crust. I think for mere mortals, this is not as much of a burden. For instance, I have over time acquired enough braces so that I can just leave them attached to the pants. Sometimes they are, um, dissonant... shog[1].gif

Sander, the shirt is made of whatever is Modern Tailor's default cheap chambray. I took advantage of one of their promos, and it turned out well. I wish I had specified about .5" more on the collar points, though... frown.gif

Easy for you to say. You have skin tight pleated jeans, if I remember right. With some weird shirt. You're already there.

 

Not starting a fight, I'm merely saying, factually, you're already there and you don't care.

Exactley. Just be yourself. I love the gallant principles and the regal Art of Living from the Art Deco Era. I always have and I always will.

I guess we can leave it at that. You can be a time-travelling mobster a Halloween a gimmick a really really weird dude attention seeking yourself, and I will be a socially acceptable 'normal' person in outfits acceptable by today's standards.

The shirt is a chambray Gitman Vintage, a very respectable brand. Nothing weird about that. Anyway, why would you care what others think of the way you dress outside of a professional setting? Don't condemn yourself to life of mediocrity, afraid of standing out, fearing what others might think.

Didn't know you could do that with MT?

I don't necessarily fear what others may think. I wear slacks and linen trousers with a nice button-up and sport coat on casual days some times. I wear blackwatch trousers. These all push the bounds of 'normal' enough. If someone was to make a comment about it, I would inform them their over-sized polo, Ed Hardy, or Affliction shirt is just in a different style and I won't make fun of it. At least not to their face.

 

Now if I were to suddenly find myself somehow in what Tibor was wearing, I would have to hand out the bat, since I could understand where the ridicule is coming from.

 

Dressing up in your own style and begging to stand out for attention are two different things.

I'm with you on this. My braces are mostly hidden throughout the day and I no longer care all that much about it. I used to have the loops removed but no longer waste money/time on that. I even have some clip-on braces because I'm a lazy ass and still haven't attached the buttons to some of my pairs shog[1].gif

Lol, I haven't seen the clips in a long time...

That's not what you just did to Tibor. You cannot like his style, that's fine. I don't like every poster's style either. But you can still critique someone's outfit in a constructive way without liking the style. Things like fit, pattern matching and colors are pretty much universal for all styles of classic menswear.

 

By calling Tibor things such as "a really really weird dude", based on a couple of outfit pictures, shows that you are a very close-minded and judgmental person.

I don't think so. If the limit of things I don't like are 1920's 21yo gimmicky gangsters or pleated jeans, I'd say I'm doing OK. 

 

If I were to critique the outfit, I would say he looks like a 1920's 21yo gimmicky gangster. 

 

The fit is great.

The pattern is a lot like a 1920's gangster.

The colors - black and white - should be reserved for 1920's gangsters and funerals.

Jester you won't win anybody over. There are those who enjoy the novelty of Tibor and people like us who feel bad for the guy. It really is a disservice to him to encourage but what can a body do?

I don't think you get it. I wasn't commenting on what you like or don't like, but on your reaction to it.

 

Let me explain it again: You don't have to like a person's style, but calling someone a "really really weird dude" and all those other things, which are personal attacks, based solely on some outfit pictures, is simply way out of line. Frankly, it baffles me that you have such a strong reaction to a couple of pictures.
