It was a long process of trial and error with some minor successes bookended by a lot of epic failures but in the end it was well worth it!

Cheers SF! cheers.gif


Holy buckets! Welcome back Pand! Long time, no fit!

I wonder about this hat. Love the colour, texture and style, all of which IMHO work with the overall fit. What I'm not so sure about is the height of the crown and the shape of the indents. The top indent seems to be structured into the hat (some trilbys are made this way - I have one myself), meaning you can't punch it further in to lower the crown. The side indents seem poorly formed and maybe they could be punched in just a little further. The other issue may be that the hat is a size too small, although I'm not convinced about this either. If the size is right, then basically I have to conclude that the hat is simply too tall - maybe by 1cm. In which case if I were you, I'd consign this one to the flames and look for a replacement in the same style but with an ever-so-slightly lower crown.

 

Hats are so damn hard to get right.

Get a navy suit and a grey suit that fit right, a couple of grenadines and nice sevenfold ties with simple patterns, some light blue MTM shirts, simple black captoes, a white and cream square, and you'll look great all week long. There's arguably nothing to improve to those fits. 

 

People (myself included) only start fucking up when they try to deviate from the rules.

 

Agree completely.

Ehh, not so sure, I think it's more complicated than that. Anyone can pick up those pieces, but getting the right fit isn't always as easy as it sounds, especially if your specific body type does not fit well into OTR clothing. I've seen plenty of grey suit/light blue shirt/tasteful tie/white linen square combos that look awful.

Thts's why I said, suits that fit well. You'll have to try a lot of brands to find what works for you, but that's why I said it'll take around 6 months. You can easily go by every shop and try on the different cuts, in order to find which work for you during that time, unless you have a weird body/are fat.

Took me awhile to find the right makers/cuts that worked for me.  Although, now I've lost so much weight that I face the decision of whether to send my tailor's kids to college or re-wardrobe. confused.gif

Don't know about you, but in my world having a wife and children doesn't leave a ton of spare time for easily going by every shop and trying on different cuts.
