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.

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..

THREAD DERAIL PSA

 

Yeah Joey is nice.. but he ain't K Dot...

 

yeeaaaahhhhhh.....

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.

My suspenders let me down (literally.) I was wearing new suspenders, and the adjustment buckles kept slipping, so they wouldn't hold my pants up. Have ordered some new suspenders.

I'm just pointing out that we go through cycles of mass overwhelming positive comments to nitpicks that are so small they're useless (either something the OP can't change, or things to do with photography where the OP has to respond and explain, etc).

To me, useful critique involves something within the OP's power within reason, for example.

I believe you're right. There are some suggestions here and it's not as bad (positive/circle jerk) as the shoe p0rn thread, but I'm not so sure most of the people are qualified to give good detailed advice like Spoo did. The best place for advice is the Good Taste thread which has maybe 3 posters that would be willing to give advice (and it's also no place to go for that specifically, at least not for most of the forum*).

 

There were threads that had a subject on obtaining good taste but they died, even after I tried to make a post in one shouting for critique. So, it seems like WAYWRN and HOF are a bit of the blind leading the blind. Not sure if we're better off just circle jerking or giving advice that may be wrong. 

 

Edit: If you saw the criticism was lacking, why not help out as well? I don't mean that facetiously. 

 

Hope nobody takes offense, I include myself in that. I love most of the recent fits posted here. But I'm not an advice giver, unless it's way far out. I believe I've got a solid structure to my outfits but I'm in no place to give any real advice to someone other than SOME fit critique and pattern variance.

 

*Just because I mentioned it, don't go to that thread for advice, or there will be mods with pitchforks on my lawn
