HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3774  

post #56596 of 78717

I find using back pockets to be uncomfortable. And plus I am not trying to give Stitches and Derek S any signals.

Going on a picnic later.  I'm wearing my pants much higher than I did the last time I wore the vest.  I still think it is a bit short, but not by much.  I've been looking for resources about how a vest should fit, but haven't found very many.  According to GQ and the styling at polo.com, this is about right.  The waistband on my pants is full covered.  How much longer do you think the vest should be?

 

Shirt: Lands End, Vest: Polo, Jacket: Uniqlo, Pants: Carven, Shoes: Cole Haan

My pants pockets go almost completely unused unless I happen to be carrying cash (a rare occurrence).

this.

i carry a cell phone, a thin wallet (which is actually an insert to a larger wallet) for cards and a few bucks and thats it. and it never goes in my pants pockets. way too uncomfortable.

If you can see the belt buckle the rise on the pants is too short and/or the vest is too short. Positive examples:

I like the fit, I love the pants, but I don't care for the cuff here. Not because it's cuffed, but because the hem line at the end of the fabric is visible (if that's the right term). It just looks strange. I like that the fabric is lighter on the cuff too, similar to denim.

The jacket and the jeans look like relics from the 90s, the madras vest doesn't work at all in this context, and I can't get behind that kind of seersucker-esque (crepe?) shirting. The jeans actually look so dated that they almost look edgy. I can see them working with some cool tee and a pair of nice sneakers, but not in this context.

I don't understand what is acute about AAS's style. Or is it supposed to be ironic?

What about the jacket says '90s to you?

A coworker of mine always carries a 500€ note taped to his belt since we've been held for ransom by french highwaymen aka la gendarmerie for not coming to a halt at a stop sign for the mandated three full seconds, once in Lyon. they threw us in a bus and drove us to the next ATM were we proceeded to pay the 'fine' in cash without getting a reçu...

I find this hilarious. Wearing a belt. Preposterous.

I am more of a 'money-clip & suit-jacket-pockets-still-sewn-shut'-kind of guy. I rarely ever carry more than 50€, though...
