Just my .02 cents foo.gif

i get shit for nearly everything. Cargos, big peaks, plaid suits, lapel pins, loud pocket squares. But you know, when youre as goddamn handsome as me, you can do what the fuck you want. Keep trying though buddy.

and nobody is riled up about your socks...theyre just telling you that you look stupid in a nice way.

I'll say this about SS, though: He has style, and he's demonstrated that he doesn't take himself or his clothes too seriously. I'd have a drink with him.
But that was a cheap shot at DerekS, SS. Besides, Canta gave him the business about the Isaia pin yesterday, so it's not like it went unnoticed.

i enjoyed these posts, and i agree with them.

SS - you should know full well by now that much of your style is not the SF norm, and you should expect some barbs. im not saying change your dress, rock it like you want it. just be prepared for the SF majority to bump heads with ya. people who are civil, engage in discourse, people who are not, just ignore.

derk - matt bomer called, he wants your number.

Here is today's fit.  Deeper colors.  I think the shoes and tie are pretty bold but not too matchy matchy I hope.  Those collar points need to be longer. Pants could probably be .25" longer. 

 

 

 

Ok pic of shoes etc. (Click to show)

 

 

 

For comparison in color depth, fit, and jacket proportions here is a similar fit from last week:

I don't think there is anything bold about the tie or the shoes.  They look nice though.  I think the jacket fits well, but the sleeves could be a little longer.

thanks you kindly!

 

The rise do not affect the inseam, as our trousers should not sag or be too tight in the crotch, so always be worn in the "same" spot. So, as you buy rtw trousers, the rise may change from trouser to trouser, reflecting on the out seam thus you should specify your favored inseam to your tailor and not the out seam, as the inseam is a more precise measurement.

This is a technical matter, so I am not sure if you could explain it successfully, but that is how I approach the subject based on tailor's explanations.

Guests at a wedding should play the part of guests, which is to say uphold the standard set by the invitation and the event. 

 

Sockless black tie, even at your sister's wedding, is a no go at this station.

 

That is all.

Derek, the baby looks to be cute as a button. Welcome to the club.

Stitchy knows all that (as he explained). He's willing tolerate a bit of variance in pants-to-taint distance but apparently unwilling to tolerate variance in where the pants sit on his waist.

You know SS's sister? It's a shame that they're not close enough for her to tell him how she really felt about his socklessness. But she has you to pass along the message, so I guess that's alright.

Great, great fit. Not sure whether the similar weaves of shirt and jacket (and to some extent, tie) are against The Rules, but I personally really like it.

If you had managed to thread the seat belt through the little loop on back of your tie, I would be genuinely impressed.

I'm saying what I would do, and why. If SS got the "go ahead" from his sister, fine. Someone decided to make it a black tie affair, I would have done black tie. That's me. SS is, of course, free to dress himself.

An oxford shirt, pick-and-pick jacket, and twill tie against the rules because they are "similar weaves"? How on earth did you come to that conclusion? It's totally fine. Now if all three were, say, herringbone, I would have a problem with it.

I'm sorry, I did not get this across his post, as his explanation, to the best of my english comprehension, results on the mistake that I explained. Not sure if tolerance applies here, trouser's fit are very strict (a sagging crotch is a poor fit), as I's expressing the technical aspect of the fitting, not the subjective.

Perhaps I misphrased it. I suppose I meant that the weaves are of similar sizes and smoothness. Apologies for my newbiness.
