More casual than regular WAYWRN but...
Normally I really like your fits, but this is (I believe) the second time I've seen this DB of yours and I don't think it works on your frame. Makes you look pear-shaped.Quote:Originally Posted by sugarbutch

Not a fan, personally. Perhaps I've seen too many cheap/bad examples, and that's coloured my perception of the style. But I feel's there's something mish-mashy about the style. Brogued lace-up boots, sure; can look fantastic. But brogued chelseas... eh, just not for me. I didn't realise "dealer boot" was the name for this style; I thought it was just another synonym for chelseas generally. Learn something new every day!
I learned that distinction online, so it's suspect. I'm convinced there's a nice pair out there, but I keep seeing terrible ones. The nicest I've seen were at Paul Stuart, and were an incredibly refined version -- chiseled last, super fine broguing, brown suede. You could hardly tell they weren't plain toes.
McBindle: the DFIH might be a bit big for that collar, which has a little less roll than my ideal. When I wear a shirt whose BD collar strikes me as a little short with a tie, I often reach for a knit (skinniest ties I own). The ground of the tie is a bit too similar to the jacket. IMHO, with a navy blazer, medium gray trousers > charcoal almost all of the time. I'm not as adamant about full-lengths as some (though I include them whenever possible), but a little more distance between camera and fit would help.
EDIT: Canta, is that a hopsack suit? The textures there are amazing.post #59166 of 787228/31/13 at 7:03am

Don since I've joined this forum your posting have always been on point. Keep up your style and fashion mission going forward.post #59174 of 787229/1/13 at 10:30amDon - not to , but about your DB suit there... yes, the button placement looks off. Having them so close makes everything outside of them (your waist) look wider). Removing the top two helped. Also, I cringe when seeing the cuffs shortened and the buttons so close to the edge. RTW suits with functional cuffs are dumb but even more so when they aren't scaled with the sizes. I've passed on too many suits because I knew I'd have to shorten the sleeves and they were functional so it was pointless to buy because the buttons would end up at the sleeves edge and I think that looks really bad. Ie, if your sleeve buttons aren't functional, I would suggest removing the first one and having the buttonhole stitching removed so you have closer to the normal 1-1.5' of space there. Otherwise, just something to watch out for in future. To me it's such a clear sign the suit was altered around to 'make it work'. Of course most items are RTW, not bespoke/MTM, but let's at least try to maintain the illusion huh?
AAS - I'll go against the fuddy duddy grain, I think SC+shorts is very difficult to pull off and you've done a great job here. Shirt looks a bit formal for the rest of the fit but otherwise very solid execution on that one. Keep the damn loafers too.
Tirailleur1 - Solid as always, just good stuff. Nice job buddy!
