post #62491 of 78717

I almost wore this hat today too.  It wasn't cold enough.

Personally, I think this is outstanding, including the tie choice.

I don't think it's bad at all either. Thank God it wasn't cold enough for that hat.

Yeah, that hat would have been a disaster. A simple dark grey fedora would have worked, IMHO.

Went with the consensus. Couldn't do much about trouser contrast though - limited wardrobe here in Shanghai. (Pics taken at Jiangsu Road metro station)

Alright Cox, what's with all the subway pictures? Have you gotten friendly with some of the metro staff?
post #62498 of 78717
That's the first-ever metro pic. The green tile hell is my balcony.

Did you get any pics of the subway glory holes after you were picked up?

 

Neither are true. I wish one of them was.

Please excuse the mess in the background and the iCrap picture quality...

Suit seems to fit very well. The matchy shirt, tie and square won't get a lot of love 'round here, although personally I think it's an effective look.

 

But for sure we need better pix. Outdoor lighting and someone else operating the iCrap would both help.

Snark: you look like a partially peeled avocado.

 

Not snark: the green on green on green (really, any time the tie and shirt are matching shades of the same color, or matching color besides blue) is not a great look. You want the color block to be broken up. There is no contrast between the shirt and tie and that creates an awkward look. That's partially why you don't see darker shirts worn with ties. The matching pocket square comes across as a bit Mens Warehouse-y or sports announcer-ish. And your cuffs are undone.

It's green. That's about it. There's no interesting and clever matching of textures, colours or patterns. Even if there were, the very fact that there is so much green just overpowers everything else, making this look like a shallow gimmick.


But yeah, stick around and look at how to introduce some thought beyond "let's wear the same colour" into it (not meant to sound harsh, but I can't really think of any other way to word it). At least your stuff seem to fit alright.

Nothing wrong with ink. Plenty of posters here have them, myself included; they're just in slightly more discrete places. A member here, in stitches, has a giant Star of David tattooed in the center of his chest. A bit shows when he's tieless.

As far as Clooney and Pitt are concerned...they looked good because they were Clooney and Pitt. And would have looked better in something non-matchy.

Comments welcome.

A second fit pic within 5 hours? puzzled.gif

And since you asked for comments... Looks like your suit is black. You won't find much love for black suits around here. Ugly shoes. Horrible tie and knot (no dimple). Very tacky white waistcoat. Shirt cuffs much too loose. Awkwardly wide stance.
