I am automatically envious of anyone who can wear a flat cap and it looks proportionate to their build.

 

 

Beige...

Holdfast you keep wearing your poppies sideways. The smaller petal is supposed to be on top, with the greenery allegedly pointing to 11 o clock, the time when the armistice was signed.

Got my G.abo Napoli suit back from the alterations tailor today 

What do you guys think? 

 

Shirt by Morris Heritage, cashmere tie by Luigi Borrelli and the split toes are Meermin Linea Maestro

Don't post here if you don't like hearing critiques. A pinstripe suit is way too businesslike to wear with a leather jacket, especially if you're only wearing the trousers. Orphaned pinstripe trousers are simply wrong, there's no subjectivity involved there. Ignoring the GQ image, notice how everyone in those pictures dresses down their leather jacket? No ties/knit ties, button down shirts, chinos, etc.

The suit under it would certainly create a bulge and would not fit the streamline created by the jacket.
Perhaps I'll take a full shot next time. The boots fit nicely; they are medallion toe chelsea boots by Allen Edmonds.

Links that are great examples of why *not* to dress like this (Click to show)


As you may have gathered from responses, that is not a good look. Here's why:

  1. Huge mixing of formality levels. Pinstripe suit is purely a business suit. Throwing on a leather jacket just makes it look like you don't have a proper dress overcoat.
  2. Don't wear pinstripe trousers without the matching coat. Makes it look like you lost your coat. Pinstripes should generally only be worn as a suit.
  3. Don't wear a tie without a jacket--suit or sportcoat. Makes you look like a waiter.

Broadly, the problem is that you have taken a mish mash of a bunch of different things and thrown them together--the end result is an incoherent mess.

Despite the snark, no one is trying to be mean. We all start somewhere. Try to take the critiques in the sense in which they were intended.

BTW, those links are great examples of why *not* to do that. They mostly look awful--and youll notice even there, none of them have taken a business suit, tossed the jacket, and thrown on a leather jacket. As a general rule, if it's in GQ, do the exact opposite.

You have to admit, it is interesting nonetheless when compared with what the lay person is wearing.


Are you the kind of person who tells people on the street that you don't like what they're wearing? Do not try to pin the negative reactions you received on the brusqueness of the internet; it is because you posted here in the first place, showing off your outfit with many stylistic flaws. If I saw someone walking down the street dressed like that, I'd simply think that it was "simply wrong" and carry on. 

That being said, fit and colours are done pretty well. You just need to stop thinking that breaking any convention at all is a sign of boldness and style - if it isn't well done, it is a gimmick, no more than that.

If it makes you feel better just imagine I am wearing a pair of chinos underneath since I didn't really take a full body shot.
Just for the record, I have never seen a waiter wearing a dolce and gabbana leather jacket to work, but I would commend him for it. wink.gif

So let me ask this then--why are you posting? Several people have provided constructive feedback. Your response has been to plug your ears and say "BUT I LIKE IT!" That's your right, but it doesn't mean your fit isn't a hot mess. It seems then that you are mostly posting to say "look at me!"

There are miles, oceans of difference between "sprezz" and just throwing together random bits from your wardrobe.

FWIW, Dolce and Gabbana, along with most other similar luxury brands, are not looked too kindly upon here. Quality is generally low, and you pay for the name. Furthermore, even if it was made by Jesus Christ himself, it's still not a good look.

From Charles Byrne, the Royal British Legion’s director of fundraising: “We wanted to end the debate about how to wear a poppy during this year’s Poppy Appeal. The way you choose to wear your poppy is a matter of personal choice. As long as you wear it with pride, then you’re wearing it the right way.” They even released a video this year, doing a tongue-in-cheek debunking of all those myths.

 

Personally, I think they look nicest with the leaf pointing the other way, in line with the jacket lapel. I have no major view on whether the petals are sideways or vertical, though.
