HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3733

His shirt collar points would have to be crazy long to reach his lapels. It's not a spread collar. On a spread collar, the points might conceivably be lengthened to reach under the lapels, but on this shape of collar, I don't think it's possible.

I know that the forum and many style gurus love the spread collar, but I don't think that it's always flattering on broader men. A more vertical collar shape can help to counterbalance a broader face, provided that the height and other proportions are good. I've gone away from widely spread collars myself for this reason, and my collars tend to be mild spread at most.

I think that this collar shape works well on Don.

Good point. I guess my point is made.

 

I'll stick with thinking it's so far out of the current setup of menswear, it should be on another forum. It reminds me of the people that film the fake WWI/II movies.

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.

People judge a book by it's cover. How you dress, how you keep your personal areas, how you keep your car, these are all reflections of you. If I saw Tibor walking around in that, I would think, "That is a really really weird costume. Therefore, that is a really really weird dude." Granted, this isn't always right but it's usually right.

 

I understand, I'm an asshole. I've tried to change, it can't happen. 

 

Edit: I had a strong reaction since I read so often on here how standing out so much isn't ideal, then comes an outfit like this and people say it's alright and it's an exception, that they're used to it so it's OK. That it's not a gimmick.

Well at least you admit to not getting it.

Obviously.

Are you guys seriously arguing over a simple post on SF?

 

I don't see anything wrong with looking like a mobster/someone who just jumped out of a time capsule; if it's their style then w/e. They obviously spent time and effort researching how to put it all together. That's better than flipping through pages of GQ and putting a wardrobe together based on what those moron "stylists" tell you.

Yes, avoided the shoot-out. Usually, you can get much further with a kind word and a gun than with just a kind word. Glad that wasn't the case.

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

Didn't know you could do that with MT?

Yep, sent them my measurements, and they made the shirt as I specified. Fortunately, the slim waist I specified was accomplished with darts I was able to remove, thereby facilitating respiration.

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

Word. I recently picked up some clip-ons, and they're great.

In general, I think a good collar looks good on almost everyone. Obviously, if it's super tall to accommodate a pencil-necked person, that won't work for a fella with his head sitting on his shoulders, but DC is hardly in the edge case territory. That said, the SF orthodoxy re collar points under the lapel seems a bit ahistorical. DC's collar shape is okay, but the points should at least lie flat on the chest of his shirt. The floating points don't look good.

You know what I think would be awkward to be seen in public wearing? A boring, "edgy", self righteous attitude about what other people do, disguised as brutal honesty. You, my friend, are simply rude. And rude is passé, unoriginal, and irritating. You went far beyond when you started commenting on Tibor's character.

You're right, I already admitted to being exactly that. And I'm leaving it alone now.

Credit where it is due. Good choice.

@RedDevil: I kinda like it, it's like your very personal style. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif But... why it wasn't centered as usual? laugh.gif

Thanks! 1. Phone post. 2. People have voiced "concerns" and there's no point in agitating the masses over inconsequential matters.
