Meaning, no tie.. dress shirts and slacks were permitted as well as sports coats..the weather was actually pretty nice in SF this weekend so I threw on my unlined unstructured cotton S.C..thats one thing I dont have enough of.. Sports Coats.. thats going to be a huge focus for me next year.. oh well..Sorry for the poor lighting as well.. had to take this inside the hotel and rush off to my meeting

















Jacket: Kroon Technology

Shirt: Suit Supply

Pants: Brooks Brothers (part of suit) Milano fit

Shoes: JM Westons

Choc, you never disappoint! You absolutely know what works for you and you wear it well.....worship.gif

Thanks for the tips Spoo. The loafers are actually navy but I get your point. I check some of the other threads for tips/hints/fit advice but rarely post in them. One of my favorites is the "appreciation of gray' thread and "shoe porn".

The stance comes naturally, I grew up in the Bronx and have lived in Brooklyn for 12 years now...LOL

As for cuffs, most of my pants are in fact cuffed. Especially those with narrow openings. in fact I was debating between these pants and another pair of Mabitex which are cuffed.

As I post more, you'll see a bit more variety in pretty much everything.

Notes for the coming week, no striped ties, cuffed pants, stepped up shoe game....got it! smile.gif

ps the Kendrick Lamar reference boosted my estimation of you by about 1000x:nodding:

Kai, I think this would benefit from more substantial lapels and a bit more wrap on the DB.

Spoo out

Why thank you spoo! That is worth 10 thumbs up in my estimation. I silently learned from all you guys following the thread for over a year before I even posted a thing and I still do. I feel I was already 60% there in terms of honing in on my fit before this forum. Then I stumbled on you guys from GQ from the referral of the style guy and it was like I struck gold..information every where I looked.. answering questions that S.A's at stores like Nordstroms, Saks and Bloomies could not answer for me..it was an eye opener..then finding an awesome tailor that I have worked with over the last 3 years.. so I am not taking the prop's.. Im giving it back to you and all of you old head's on here that helped a gent out..

 

P.S-Kendrick is dope.. but I am looking forward to my man Joey Badass.. he reminds me of what it used to be like.. but Kendrick, intentionally or not, started a movement. Hopefully for the better..

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.

 

Gracias. That shirt was white though; I suspect something is funny about my camera or the lighting.

 

Linen jacket, more patterned pants, blue shirt
