The suit is great. You may get shit for the tie knot but there are those of us that love it. The tie itself is awesome, too. Almost got one like it but I don't wear ties so I've started to limit my purchases.

 

I think the next step you should consider are some other cuff links. I know nothing about cuff links except I think you could do better. Maybe three silver pair to rotate, or just one, not sure. I'm not the guy to go to for this. 

 

But in no time at all, I've gone from not enjoying your fits in the beginning to being happy when you post here, I believe it brings the level of the thread up a little. 

 

PS, I do HATE long wings but.. that's personal. Long wings and split toes.

Some one asked if there were any suicides, no, everyone knew what was expected of them, and they followed orders as required. No stress at all.

My mom worked for IBM in the mid-'70s. I have a picture of her (with full-blown 'fro) and a few of her colleagues. They definitely don't fit the IBM stereotype, but I guess they fit this description:

Before you make stupid fucking statements about things you have no knowledge of, do some research. Man this chaps my ass.

Get your learn on here.

Yay, Missouri!

DC, other than your pose (which looks like you're unnaturally throwing your shoulders back), this looks really good!

I do agree. Less balloon man pose. I did the same thing for a while but now, If I'm posting a fit pic like what you did, here's my stance - I'd say you should do something similar. Mainly, relax.

The only thing I don't like about DC's fit is the fit of the jacket. Like I've said before they all seem a bit snug. Another thing I noticed, which could just be his frame is that most of his stuff looks very square in the shoulders.

I like the prince albert knot with seeing the first winding. I use only  this knot or the 4IH. I have this tie in four colors.

 

I have cuffkins 2 pairs in silver and 2 pairs in gold with a dark blue gem and a light blue gem with a sailingship cur in the stone. This cufflinks I use for more conservative outfits (dark suits) or when I wear a DB Blazer (The marine ones).

 

And thanks for your compliment. I posted much outfits in a german forum, but people reduce the outfits to my weight and make some ugly comments. And I think here is for me now the better place to learn something more. So you will see many outfits from me in the future.

This jacket is ok. I have 2-3 cm space when the top button is closed. Some jackets, espacially some sports coat a tightwer, but as I said I try to loos additional  3-4 kg. And I try to stand more naturally.

I think the square shoulder deal is probably going to be a bit of a trademark for DC. And as for the snug fit, I'd say it's snug but it's thrifted. So in that aspect, I follow different criteria. If he said, "This is my bespoke suit," I would have said that's not good. But if I found a jacket that fit reasonably well like what he has, I would keep it and alter what can be altered.

 

Unfortunately, as a 38L, I'm screwed. Spoo steals it all.

That's bullshit. There's only one or two members here that mention the appearance or shape of the wearer. I believe it's about the style you create.

 

Furthermore, I believe people of bigger stature need to try much, much harder to get an admirable fit. There was an article written on it by Ethan Newton of the Armoury, explaining how you overcome the challenge of how everyone believes style is limited to people of 36-40 size and finding the right fit since the 'rules' are tailored more towards skinny. It was a great article, just can't remember where it is.

 

I've been lucky so far and have a fast metabolism, even though I eat junk. Soon it will catch up.

 

Either way, thanks for posting.

That is bullshit. They are jealous you are a handsome dude with awesome hair.

I like the fit alot. The jacket pattern is superb.

post #56997 of 78717
yeah indeed. And I wish I dressed half as well as DC does when I was larger. Heck, many size 38's should learn from him. What a bunch of d*ckheads on those forums.

And I am not basing any of this off of my style or other adventurous dressers from CM, but rather how many in here approach CM as to SWD. It really annoys me when CM posters use these as points of debate when they are stating their hate for SWD. 

 

I agree that we would look "fashion forward" to them, but they would recognize our manner of dressing. For example, try to compare the change that Japan passed through on the last quarter of the 19th century to how the ocidental dressing form has changed over the last century. Apples and oranges. Yes, the formality has dropped constantly, but the lounge suit still reigns.

 

On that last part I agree completely. Myself as an example, I can not understand the general concepts involved into the SW&D dressing form, but that does not make less of them.

As for the cut of the Pants, unfortunately nothing I can do I am built like a running back small top bigger bottom. I am a cycling sprinter and have a 27" thigh, any suggestions that you have for hiding some of the difference would be great. 

 

Noted on the pants and tie gentleman. I will try a cream, tan or grey next time 

I would get them pants lightly tapered 8 to 8.5 inches

I understand where you're coming from, T1, but I think you're overreacting. Look at Sean Connery from the 60s, that was 50 years ago, and you would not be out of place wearing his suits today. Of course nothing is every timeless, as everything is subject to change, but calling an outfit timeless just means it's not extreme in one way or another. Not overly wide lapels, not very small ones, but a a happy medium. And that's the essence of 'classic' menswear, everything is a happy medium.
