CottonDockers:

 

I like it, but the shoes might be a little square for the jacket.

I was going to say wool trousers would be better but noticed on close up they are cords, so they get a pass. The shirt won't get a lot of love, but the cardi is great.

 

Thanks.  I like the sleeves on the jacket, but prefer a slightly shorter jacket.  I do like a good long or short wing brogue derby.  I'm not a fan of the plan ones.  I've been looking in to getting a pair.  Probably no time soon.  I got the cardigan from Frank and Oak in exchange for doing a review.  I think it is quite nice for the price.  Better than J. Crew, but on par with Club Monaco.  I'm not looking for love on SF.  I'm happily married.

Never, have I seen socks like this! Amazing.

 

Thanks.  They're PRL from eBay.  It's one of my favorite patterns.

We have discussed this earlier, and I know you don't ask me this time. But I dare to answer this.

 

For me it is a mix of formality. Jeans are causual and all fine, and french cuff are formal and all fine - but not together.

It's the same with jeans and a coat, it's a mix of formality (and a outworn cliche). Jeans are perfect with sweater, or a leisure jacket, but not together with a SC, since they belong to different levels of outfit and give a contraditory expression. To me it's like sneakers with a suit.

 

Besides that everyone can wear whatever he wants, imo.

Use manual focus. Make a best-guess setting. Then take the first three or four photos with the same pose, but inching forward a little each time.

 

Now check to see which position gave the best focus (e.g. for fine detail on tie and PS) and stand in that spot for all subsequent poses.

 

Another trick is to use narrow apertures (say f11 and higher) to give more depth of field. But you will need more light for this. Or you can up the ISO. Or decrease the shutter speed. Or get a better fucking camera.

 

 

p.s. with all this apparent expertise, I still take shite photos. Go figure.

Victor, it's great to see you posting again. I don't really know whether it's deliberate or not, but there's always a lovely sense of idiosyncratic pastiche about many of your outfits, which I really like.

I also got a black garza fina which has yet to be worn. It replaced a satin silk tie I had, and will be fine if I'm ever required to attend a funeral. But I'm of the opinion that ties offer the chance for a splash of colour in otherwise sedate backgrounds (navy/ charcoal suit, solid or blue striped shirt) so despite the general adoration of black knit or grenadine ties by the SF intelligentsia, any time I consider wearing a black tie I decide to go for something more colorful instead.

 

I wear my black grenadine very occasionally and agree that it's just too funereal for most days. Funnily enough when I bought mine, it was also to replace a satin silk black tie. I do have a suit (and one jacket) that plays very well with a black tie though, so I'm thinking about getting a black knit for it. A bit less morbid than the black grenadine, so it should work fine for those days.

 

On a more general - and equally heretical - note, I find solid colour grenadines to be a lot less versatile than SF tends to view them. For me, they're too more formal for most odd jacket looks (if you want a textured tie for those, wear a knit or a wool/cashmere if it's winter), while still not being formal enough for a more businessy suit where you'd typically wear a normal silk tie. And I don't really like solid on solid looks most of the tie anyway. So I find that they occupy a fairly narrow spectrum of utility of being used with suits that are somewhat - but not too much so - casual in both fabric & pattern. This is why I only own two of them: the aforementioned rarely-worn black, and a navy.

The shirt collar looks very nice in close up, but a bit flattened in the fuller shot. Not sure why. Is it slightly too big for your neck perhaps, and so falling down a bit?

Not my cup of tea at all, but I get what you're aiming for, and think it works in that context.

This is a prime example of the kind of jacket (pattern & colours) that I would hate on me, and but think it can look great on others. Nice one.

I find the green of the cardigan a little too close to the green of the cords. Overall palette is nice though.

Glad you remembered to; good-looking suit. It's what I think of as a very "appropriate" silhouette: fits right, and without any sort of crazy cut or detail that would offend anyone. A go-anywhere sort of suit.
