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

The result of that is flattening the roll again.

 

Really, the neck is what decides where the lapel will roll. If dry cleaners have pressed your lapels flat, maybe you can press the crease they have created out, but don't press it again all the way, just a little below the neck then let the lapel roll naturally. Although by that time, the tension and curve created by stitching (padding) the canvas to the outer shell might have been destroyed anyways.

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

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

Wow damn, Spoo swoops in with some constructive criticism... I knew there was something missing from the WAYW...

There's room between circle jerking and needless nitpicking. Can we please please keep doing it?



Kai, you knowz somebody's going to say your pants are on the full break side there right? (or were they just slumped down?)

Unfortunately I'm not much of a nitpicker since I don't know what the hell I'm talking about. But since you're not a fan of positivity, I'll refrain from the compliments and just post pictures of my own.

Also I guess it doesn't really help when most of the senior members have left the thread and/or forum.
