Suit is navy, tie is gray. For shits and giggles, my shoes are burgundy in an attempt, along with the PS, to break up the somber suit-shirt-tie combo.

PS AND burgundy shoes?! Are you trying to give people a heart attack?!

What's wrong with a pocket square? I'm questioning your expertise now.

Dude, was just joking. I guess you have to work in the industry to understand it.

Three more reasons to accumulate a wardrobe slowly:

1.  Fashions change.  The short jacket and low-rise pants from the store this year will one day go to the back of the closet, to sit with the low gorge double-breasted suit from the 80s.

2.  Sizes change.  The consequence of missing sleep from years of work and raising children will be an expanded waistline.  

3.  Tastes change, hopefully for the better.  As we gather experience dressing, reading books, and seeing elegant outfits, our tastes become more informed.  We gradually develop a deeper understanding of what fits us, what complements our appearance, and what qualifies as enduring style instead of a passing fad.  

I agree that one should acquire a wardrobe slowly and over time. Nothing good will come out of buying a ton of stuff too quickly, like stitch said you will end up selling for a loss or just donating things.

However, your first 2 points don't make any sense to me. Fashions change obviously, but that shouldn't stop you from buying something that you like now, as long as it is more of a "classic, timeless" (I know, these can be bad words around here sometimes) piece...meaning things like light blue shirts, grey suit, navy blazer, brown captoes, as long as they are not too aggressively styled. I'm guessing that's the point you were trying to make.

But #2, sizes change? Why would you ever decide not to buy something now because you might have a bigger waistline in the future? If that were the case, nobody would ever buy anything for fear that they will get fat and it won't fit anymore. Buy stuff that fits now, and if you gain weight, suck it up and buy some new stuff...or lose the weight so you can fit into the nice clothes you already have.

Can't wait to hang up the uniform and wear Escorial on a daily basis. No worries.

Ok, first time posting here with being a member of only a few days. Within these few days I think I'm learning a lot. But I'm working with what I already have, but, have already started making purchases. This is not a new purchase. And not of high brand/cost.
Haggar Suit
Geofrey Beene shirt
Cheap cuffs my wife picked up somewhere
TM Lewin tie
GH Bass shoes
Comfortable suit...

Today:

Jacket, waistcoat & trousers - MTM, Thomas Mahon/English cut.

Shirt - MTM, Turnbull & Asser.

Tie - Dehaviland.

PS - Turnbull & Asser.

Shoes - AE, Strand.

 

Since it's not quite winter yet, I dropped the waistcoat after lunch.

I'm not happy with the trousers, and have returned them to Tom for alternation once. Still not satisfied. To baggy, and the rise feels wrong. Any suggestions how to fix them?

Ebonyman, if you want to wear those jackets, I think you'll need to go for less weight and more reps on the bench press. smile.gif
