HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3830  

post #57436 of 78723


So he advice last time was to try a darker tie and lighter trousers. I half got it, hopefully the medium grey trousers are a balance. Need to get a new pair of tan slacks

Bah, halfway between navel and sternum is hardly armpit territory. Now hard threes on the other hand...

(as I said, certifiable wacko when it comes to buttoning points)

I have a giant head. Crown to jaw, it accounts for 15.4% of my height. I'm 6.5 heads tall while the average person is 7.5. (Edit: Just spent a while reading about ideal head-to-body ratios in art. It depressed me)

 

However, the argument might be made that a lower buttoning point might offset a larger head by showing more shirt and tie...

I prefer blue and grey tones simply because they go well against my skin tone

I have pretty medium shoulders, not too broad, not too narrow. I can try experimenting with some slightly wider shoulders next time. The cloth is a pretty standard medium grey twill, Gladson fabric. It's a four season fabric, right around 10oz.[/

Thanks! I had the option of standard vs wide lapels, and I'm glad I went with the wider option. They're about 4.25", and I was worried they might look too wide, but I was very happy with the way they balance out on the suit.

Nothing beats a grey suit with a nice navy tie on white shirt look.

Ah, I think you have me confused with Clapeyron. He's the guy in PNG.

You've changed your opinions over the weekend. I hope it was a good one!
