HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4244  

post #63646 of 78724

Been away a few days.  First day back, with first new smaller-me stuff from the tailor: DB jacket in Harrison tropical weight 120s & cashmere.  Linen and cotton trousers with SF-friendly 2" cuffs.  New tie from Henry Carter and mad PS from Post Imperial.  Happy Sunday.

Thanks, Pliny - praise indeed from a man of your calibre.

Well, I won't go as far as to say that I like it. But if I saw you in a coffee shop, I'd certainly respect you for wearing it. So cheers to that. :cheers:

 

Also, I dig the new haircut.

I like all these pieces individually (especially the pocket square).  I think this would look better without the vest or with the vest and a different pair of pants.  The color of the vest is too close to the pants and jacket.  I think a dark brown vest would look better.

Very nice textures, but I don't think the colors work together.  The oranges and cream are warm while the blue and grey are cool.  I think a pair of brown pant would have worked better.  Beautiful pocket square.  Also, I think I may have mentioned this before, but I think you'd look better if your jacket button stance was a bit lower.  Your jacket button is about in the middle of the jacket length.  I think 3/2 ratio would be better.

Ideally, the colors are brought together by the brown shoes (at least I hope so, as that's my general strategy for combining cool with warm colors). Alas, I am not a heathen and so do not wear shoes inside the house. And as I yet still have dignity, I'll only bring my tripod outside for special occasions (like Friday challenges ^_^). As I'm sure Stitchy will point out, this is why I should include shoes in the picture.

As far as my button stance, the topic has been broached a couple of times. That particular jacket is actually a little lower than I like. I don't know if I have a high natural waist or what, but the higher stances are just more comfortable (just below the midway point of the sternum and navel). And you can't look good if you don't feel comfortable.

Edit: looking at it again, I wonder if there might be too much drape for that button stance.

I like all of the individual pieces, but I don't think there is enough contrast between the vest and the pants.

My thoughts exactly. Upper half is great.

It´s in real better than on the fotos. The vest ist notable darker than the trouser. On the next pics I make a detail shot from the crossover of the  trouser and vest

Today I tried something a little different than I'm used to.

Thoughts I had (Click to show)
I already had the pants tapered, but perhaps not aggressively enough? Or maybe they just need to be pressed? I'm not sure.
Is a 4x1 too vintage?
The lapels are pretty buff, but it may be ok with double-breasted and peaks?
Is the scale on suit and shirt too similar? Maybe the suit pattern is subtle enough that it doesn't matter?

Amigo:

 

Please, please don't spend any more money trying to tailor that suit.  The gorge is so low that, combined with the 4x1 silhouette, the too-big shoulders, wrong sleeve pitch and the pants that need to be completely recut, it just isn't worth it.  It will never really fit you properly nor will it look good.
