Hardly the first side-track in this thread, and at least this one's about classic menswear - leave the man alone! Try the "Unfunded Liabilities" thread for ideas, Rudy. But beware: if this thread is the most brutal, that one is the most rarified. There, you will be in the presence of great knowledge and enormous egos. So no whining or sounding "entitled". They don't like that. I'm a bit scared of them. But they know a LOT.

dont worry about it. keepon keepin on. tangents are part of WAYWRN, always has been.
regarding your question tho, will @ fields is the effing man. i am sure he can guide through the process.
however, if you are looking specifically for SF all-star status, going bespoke this early in your game is a dangerous choice.
will does great great work, but not all great work is SF approved. if you really seek SF approval, be aware, you may spend 4k + on a single suit and people may say no good. and if that will make you hate your suit, you will have just wasted a lot of money.
IMHO, do not buy anything bespoke for at least a full year of active SF participation. learn learn and learn more, and fail along the way. and once you are more certain of what you like and what flies over here, then go bespoke. let your failures be less financially devastating. trust me.
now, if you dont care about SF approval, that is a different story, but i do not gather that is the case. and even if you dont care, there is what to be said about spending time learning what you like before you go bespoke. ones personal style develops and you may be surprised where you land in the end, and realize what you really do like and dont like.
and im sure in the meantime, at work and with friends, you look better than most.post #62301 of 7871710/16/13 at 2:10pmpost #62302 of 7871710/16/13 at 2:11pm
I sometimes dress myself into a corner. I had a really hard time finding a jacket to go with this outfit. My pocket square matches my tie and these pants are awfully short. They're on my tailoring list.post #62303 of 7871710/16/13 at 2:14pm
Nice fit, Orge. Yours is what I wanted mine to be.Quote:
Beautiful tie, Mimo.post #62304 of 7871710/16/13 at 2:21pm
Thanks CD. I must say I've been really delighted with the Yellow Hook experience. Don Roberto is not only a thoroughly pleasant and decent human being with whom to do business, but the maker of some absolutely exceptional neck candy. I have three. And it would be dishonest - with myself primarily - not to add "so far".
AAS: you know how I feel about your horsebits, and you're right about the trousers. But somehow, with that cord jacket, your loafers seem to have found a strange harmony. I like it.post #62305 of 7871710/16/13 at 2:35pmpost #62306 of 7871710/16/13 at 2:45pmpost #62307 of 7871710/16/13 at 4:44pmpost #62308 of 7871710/16/13 at 4:58pmpost #62309 of 7871710/16/13 at 5:03pmpost #62310 of 7871710/16/13 at 5:06pm
I think 3 in a 12 hour period. One was from earlier in the week. I wasn't going to post it because the jacket was too short. Then I thought that was a stupid reason not to post it. Then I realized I had worn navy jackets three days in a row and got excited for Thursday. Now it's Thursday.
I get prize, yes?
