I didn't want to stink up the SWD thread so I held my tongue, but now that we're over here, I must say I don't get the robe thing brewing over there. I like the suit, though.

Cue the "classic and timeless" rants.

Not from me. That's one of the best outfits in a good while.

I love the bag. Wouldn't work with what I generally wear. Probably wouldn't work with who I am. But I love it nonetheless.

This thread has been so strange as of late (not talking about shah's suit, kind of like it, wish the trousers were about an inch longer though).

There are some looks I love in theory, wish I could wear myself and know that the rest of my life (and build) is simply too different to be able to convincingly integrate them on a personal level. Robes (and similar stuff like cloaks) fall into that category. But damn, I think they look cool.

 

On a side note, acubed82's outfit doesn't work, not through any one piece or detail, but because the overall visual effect created in the eye of the beholder is of someone in lower-middle management desperately trying to look a bit different and eye-catching. Whether that is or isn't the case is totally beside the point; that just isn't the kind of visual effect anyone would possibly want to create. It's doubly unlucky for him when the outfit is placed in such close proximity to something truly different & eye-catching (albeit in an expected & stylised way) like the Yohji stuff.

 

Most of us in this subforum have the kinds of lifestyle where a full-on look like unfortunately won't fly (not least to our own sense of identity), so we have to define a visual aesthetic closer to who we are and what we do.

thanks for the kind words and thoughtful responses, fellas. it's all very relaxed and comfy--always my first priority

sugarbutch - please don't hold your tongue ! i agree with you a lot of the robes were weak. but this was several kilos of speckled sparkly purple wool massively oversized :-p

@Johnboy: Not sure what my age has to do with anything. Also, disagree with you about the jacket length and the tie bar. Jacket just covers my posterior, which is a good length, I think. And a tie bar is supposed to keep the end of your tie from flapping around too much, so not sure why you would clip it so high unless your only concern is people seeing it when your jacket is buttoned.

Now whether someone who's wearing such a loud (and burnable tie) should be concerned about it flapping around is another question.

 

Your age has everything to do with your, maturity, wisdom, social standing, perception, social norms et al, generally speaking, and thereby give me a better idea of who I am dealing with.

 
Your jacket more than covers your posterior and is too long, in fact, as I said originally: Jacket: is too big for you. Shoulders are too wide and jacket too long. Gorge is very high on the jacket too
 
A tie bar is primarily jewellery and not worn to keep one's tie from flapping. If it does it is a bonus, so wear it higher and show it off.
 
You asked for criticism, I gave it to you without being derogatory, and you don't like what you hear.. Oh well.. what was I saying earlier.. maturity, wisdom, perception (self in this instance)..
