This. It's like I'm scrolling through Luxeswap, only not at all.

Just in case anyone wants to copy this, guys you should read the tailors' tutorials on lapels and pressing first.

I was only talking about the suit-shirt-tie combos and not on fit.

Very nice fit. My personal taste is 1-2 cm longer trousers, but this works well on you.

This would actually work if you were wearing a black cotton sport coat (or linen) and a gray t with a deeper v or a low crew neck. Jacket would need to be at least two inches shorter. T tucked behind chunky belt buckle (but not tucked in). Streetwear of course.  Jean boot combo is cool, denim fits you well.

Moo, I like that fit a lot, but perhaps it is more SW&D. I like the length of the jacket too.

DC and Tobias are the best new membas.

By far.

I dont check this thread nearly as much as I would like to or as I used to, so Ill just come in from the last day and give a little honest advice.

The jacket looks 2" too long and is a wee bit too close to the pants for my comfort in color. Swap the knit dot tie with a solid brown and the shirt for a solid blue and its much better.

Where are you that its this cold?! Im not ready for Fall yet. But, this is a lovely look. I have a personal thing with crewneck sweaters over shirts, cant stand it. Works on you but for me I would only do this with a V neck. Great fall look.

Clags, I remember when you first started posting, and you had a pretty good eye for what you were doing. Ive seen your posts over the past few months improve greatly - as well as your photography. You are a pretty active participant in this thread and have a really good eye (and good photography skills). Here is a near win - the shirt looks pink to me which kind of throws a wrench in it. Pale blue end on end would have been a solid choice, more than a pale pink (if im right about the pink). I think the jacket is a bit too smooth for a patterned pant like that - I would have preferred cashmere or a hopsack or something not so lustrous. Many times Ive gone green tie/pink shirt - love the combo - but the pink is too cool against the rest of the warm tones there in my eyes. A paisley PS would have added some interest too but YMMV.

Ebony, Im still jealous of that perfect goatee. lol. You also have that dont fux with me pose down pat, which is awesome. Your shoe game needs to be stepped up here - black Maglis, while nice, aren't your a game that I think know you are capable of. I dont see your posts in other fora, but check out some of the shoe dedicated threads - GG/EG/Carmina etc and check out some new styles. I think a double monk would benefit the looks Ive seen you in greatly. Your PS fold needs a bit of assistance here too - if you are doing a TV fold, always make sure the rolled edges are out - not the side you fold over. Gingham is nice, but against the windowpane, its too many boxes and straight lines (with the striped shirt). Too much geometry. Try a dotted or a paisley print one. You seem pretty tall too - 6' maybe? Have you considered cuffing your pants? You have the stature to carry it.

Quite sorry for your loss man. But this is perfect.

The shirt collar needs to be a little longer to sit underneath your jacket. Its a nice collar but needs to be longer. Not a fan of the maroon PS with a blazing orange tie though.

And today last day of 15 days working in 17 days. First time I wear a lapel flower.

Don, Ive seen you have been posting some more over the last few weeks and trying some good stuff. You seem like a nice guy and want to learn, which is great. And you have very fluffy hair.

This look is a miss for me for a few reasons. You are a big guy - you dont need to call a whole lot of attention to yourself with all this gilding the lily stuff. Matching knot cufflinks, blazing red socks, lapel pin, etc. You have a pretty intense look about you (in a good way) and I don't think the whole #menswear Pitti Uomo tricks thing is for you. Your fellow German Vaux le Vicomte is also a big guy who can pull off some serious tricks, but he carries a different gravitas to him. I see you best in a more sedate attire, but with some fun patterned PS's and ties to express yourself with. For this look, I would have swapped the windowpane shirt for a solid blue, the patterned pants for a lighter grey to better compliment that camel-ish jacket, switched the socks to blue and put solid silver somethings as knots, though I dont think a hopsack jacket is right for links. You seem like a details oriented guy, by the way you are trying to show us your matching watchstrap to shoes, PS to cufflinks, etc. The small details - like a tighter, longer tie knot as well as a cleaner, proper hem on the pants (the machine hem is visible there) are things that you can focus on to tie the look up better. I think you have potential which is why I offer the advice.

I don't think I've ever given SF the chance to gaze upon my luscious locks, so here is my entry for the awesome hair club.

You guys and this hair! I dont post for a few weeks but dang, you all got fluffy on me.

I see where you were going here Monkey, and its quite close. While club collars are not my thing at all, I appreciate them in the right mood. Here, I see just a bunch of lines. Striped shirt, striped suit, striped tie. Nothing to break up the vertical motion. Your hair is doing a pretty good job of moving north too. smile.gif I think that tie is best with a solid blue jacket - if I were to leave the suit and shirt, I really feel the best option for you is a solid tie, or a larger paisley kind of thing a-la our old friend % (he is missed) who if memory serves right, posted a similar ensemble in late 2011. Im too lazy to go back and find it. What shoes did you wear with this? Im imagining black gunboats. It was probably oxblood longwings though. Am I right?
