HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3809  

post #57121 of 78723
Pretty much nothing I like about that combo. The jacket could be nice, but it looks tight and short. I would also pair it with mid grey trousers, not tan/brown. The shirt has a little too much going on it in for the texture of the jacket, imo. I think a bengal striped ocdb, or a plain pale blue ocbd would look nicer with the jacket. Also, I would opt for a cream puff stuffed a bit further into the pocket.

Agree. Should have been more clear--a less primary color blue neat would work, so long as the shade of blue still provides sufficient contrast with the blue of the suit.

A solid navy tie is definitely a grey-suit tie.

Thanks for the feedback. 

 

I do need to get the jacket taken out a little, well spotted. The length doesn't bother me, nor does the pairing with light-coloured trousers - although I'll try the jacket out with a mid shade trouser when such comes to hand. (I'm travelling.) 

 

Might be difficult to see from the photo, but the dark blue square actually picks up the tertiary colour in the shirt. I'd be worried that a cream PS might be too contrasty and distracting..

Good luck. That feeling of complete helplessness / uselessness is unlike anything else. But it ends very happily.
Think you mean Macclesfield

A simple, but if you've spent any time in Shoreditch, a funny mistake.

The DOW is rocking one on Voxsart today.
U had me worried there cos i usualy get it wrong but looked it up in ttrusty Flusser - Spitalsfield ties with one 't' - heavy silk witha neat pattern. Sometjing to do with Huguenot weavers in the 'East End'. Mebe they dont do them anymore?

I think it looks decent, much improved from what I recall of your past pics.
I think you should not use a Windsor knot.
I think you should hold on tight to that very nice looking lady and never let go.

i think u both look really sweet. But def not fussed on the jacket. Let out the waist. Somethung odd about the sleeve too. Pitch is off.

Yep, definitely looking good-- in particular, width of trousers / fit and break are all excellent. I had to comment on the post, because the shape of your shoes is so good-- I can't stand stubby lookin, too rounded toes on shoes. Yours are elegant examples of what a good dress shoe looks like!!

Looks nice, but to nitpick I would wear a simple patterned tie with the same base color as the one you have on there and lose the clip. Also, the knot looks silly, a four in hand would do.

Yes, that's what I meant. pB below explains what I only hinted at. Of course, as I said IRL & in motion, the unfortuante effect may well disappear; static photos can be misleading about this, esp. in certain poses.

+1 here but the sleeve rotation - you can let that go. You're not standing naturally and this isn't the picture to help decide that.

pB has it as always.

the extreme heat of the last weeks is over, so back to wearing a jacket:

The only thing that I don't like there is the square and trouser color. I would have gone with a grey trouser personally. I am not a fran of pink squares.
