HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4189  

post #62821 of 78717

Baggy =/= no fit.

 

Look at the shoulder seams; perfect. Look at the shirt at the waist. Had it been any more narrow, it would look silly with the fullness of everything else. Wider, it would billow. The only nitpick could be the neck, which seems too small, but as I doubt that shirt was ever made to be worn with a tie (and the top button to be buttoned), I suspect that's just right as well.

 

Take away the brand, I bet you still have 100+ thumbs. Take away the name (as MoK is, I think, a well regarded fellow), I bet you still have 70+.

Let´s leave it here. You have a few valid points.

Morning light is getting worse, so excuse the poor picture quality

Mimo, this makes you come across as a bit of a tit. Yohji Yamamoto, whose clothes Man of Kent is wearing in that fit is one of the most interesting designers around, he's no kid - and neither is MoK - and far more interesting (and funny) than you or any of us. He understands western tailoring with a depth than most people here wouldn't get either, and he's strongly influenced by aspects of it along with the deep history of Japanese clothing traditions, and modern fabric development. Being married to a Japanese woman an living out here a lot of the time, I get a bit tired of people's ignorance and narrow-mindedness. I believe you live in the Middle East which means you should at least get the fact that there are other traditions of dress around and they are not 'hippy leisure wear' if they aren't cut like they do it on Savile Row. You don't have to care, but if you really don't know or understand something, the best thing to do is either to ask a question (like Anden) or to take Wittgenstein's advice and keep quiet. There's a whole thread on his stuff over on SW&D if you do want to know what this is about next time this comes up (and no, it isn't the first time here).

You could also not take it so personally.  I'm not making any reference to this designer, his skills or the quality of his work, let alone the irrelevant detail of his nationality.  Merely noting that this is not within the realms of classic menswear as I understand it, and though we all wear flip flops and shorts on the beach, or even baggy pants for a stroll around the green fields, I'm not sure I care what constitutes "fashion" beyond the narrow walls of this CM thread.  Nor am I impugning the character of this individual for his area of sartorial interest.

 

My characterisation of contemporary fashion as childish, or espadrilles as beloved of new age travellers, might be unreasonable.  But this is just a forum, after all, where we all entertain ourselves. Reprising again my intolerant CM-only persona might indeed make me appear a "tit".  To which I can only reply that insulting strangers on the internet isn't very elegant either.

 

P.S.  But I still love you.  Especially in tweed.

I scratch my head at times when I visit SW&D but you shouldn't hate on what you don't understand.

post #62830 of 78717

I'm not sure where the hate or the not understanding comes into it.  I am merely saying that stuff that isn't classic menswear is...not classic menswear. So..let's have some more classic menswear in this classic menswear thread...shall we?

 

To be fair, I'm wearing lilac shoelaces.  That might well make me a tit.  But black captoes are definitely OK. :satisfied:

Needs more of that secret service guy with the badass fits :slayer: 

post #62832 of 78717

First time wearing this jacket, obviously needs lighter trousers, but didn't have time to press them this morning so I wore the only ones that were already pressed.

 

Tie is Cappelli madder

Day Two of jury duty. Insofar as yesterday's ensemble made me look like "safe juror pick" (in the opinion of RogerP, who is, I believe, a member of the legal profession), today's attire, I hope will simply look like "better dressed than the defense attorney, the prosecutor, or the judge". We shall see - as it was, the only people who saw my attire yesterday were the other jurors in the jury pool, and the jury room clerks.

Suit & shirt - BBGF
Tie - BB
Cufflinks - Boston Museum of Fine Arts
Vintage watch chain
Shoes - New & Lingwood

I can only second Timo's comment about light quality - not easy taking even half-decent pics without proper lighting.

Finally managed to find a well-fiiting pair of mid-grey flannels last week, trying them out for the first time today. Incotex, very good construction and looks to be of good quality, but oh man were they expensive baldy[1].gif. Oh well, they will be put throughs some heavy use - I seem to wear mid-grey flannels at least three days a week - so hopefully they will hold up well.
