HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3970  

post #59536 of 78723

Two days ago:

 

(Camel hair, tattersall, wool knit, silk hank. Unseen: off-white chinos and brown bit loafers).

 

Yesterday, in an X-post with MC Casual:

 

Vintage 6x3 DB with smoked MOP buttons, in wool crepe. Trousers are cheap corduroy jeans, which are a little short and a little tight for my taste.

Still a little hot where I am for camel hair, but I can't wait until I can wear it. Very nice jacket.

Thank you. The fit isn't quite spot on -- it's too big around the collar, I think. It's camel-colored flannel, half-lined, and I wore it with lightweight trousers, so it squeezed by on a day in the mid-70s which I mostly spent indoors. Camel doesn't get the love it deserves, IMHO. One of the top three sportcoats (up there with navy blazer and gray herringbone tweed).

Monkey, I can't tell what color anything is in this fit, but it all seems to fit nice. Black jacket?

Cheers, navy jacket, seaweed green trousers.

Cool, it might border on too much green if the trousers were a darker shade, but it works quite well as is, I think.

Yeah, it's a very light green, sometimes it even looks like grey, depending on the lighting. Here's a closeup of the fabric:

I'm here to learn and to draw inspiration...

My cousin's wedding yesterday.

First, is this a black suit? If it is, this is how a black suit should be donned and how a jacket should fit you. I'm going to talk about the tie knot, but here is some reading for you on tie knots. About the tie itself, is it made of satin? It does looks like satin, which is not good on that color (black or midnight blue for satin neckties). The pocket square should be burned, especially when combined with that tie, and you should tuck the substitute more. I'm, also, going to advocate against dark shirts, especially for a newbie. The belt and the shoes are a good match, seeming to be tasteful (assuming that both are of good quality), but they're way out of what would be a coherent combination for them. Your watch and your glasses are way too large for you, try something more proportional.

 

That is how a black suit should be donned if you are an older man. I personally think a lot of the fits showcased as "great" on SF are infact to boxy and baggy.

Don't disagree with your advice, just want to clarify that a more contemporary fit is also acceptable.

Not really, oversized glasses and watches are a matter of preference. Panerai owners would beg to differ.

Looks like it's time for this again...

SF, thankfully, isn't a closed system whereby we all simply sit around and post pictures to people with 500 posts or more. N00bs will arrive and look for help. It happens.

So I should clarify to you that fit and silhouette are different things. I addressed fit, you understood it as silhouette. The "how a black should be donned" part addressed the accessories, not the silhouette. However, I wasn't very precise on my remarks, so, my bad here.

Oh dear. I am not passing judgement but, what about this outfit did you think was going to be SF CM approved? This is like a checklist of SF CM violations. Unbuttoned BD shirt? Check. Micro-lapel's with collar gap? Check and check. Matched PS and tie? Check. Poorly tied novelty knot? Check.
