HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4271  

post #64051 of 78717

I agree. Guys here are many times a bit harsh on the new guys. it isn't easy to come here and expose yourself.
Even if people want a judgement i don't think they understand how harsh it can be. And it's not easy getting yourself fancy, maybe spending a lot of money just to know that you are really off.

I don't think I was overly harsh at all. But for god's sake-if you are going to be sensitive about people's opinions, don't go post pics of yourself in a public forum.

Even if the suit even came close to fitting, the fact you thought that only buttoning the bottom button was a good idea is proof positive that you need remedial help learning the basics of business dress.

The reason to post is to learn. Some people are mean, it's true. There are places where you can learn about clothes without the tone people use on here, but you're not likely to get the same degree of rigor, either.

 

Mr. Daniels, closing the bottom button only is, in a way, making the best of a bad situation. Staringxgold, you may not read this, but that suit just doesn't work on your frame -- and, to be honest, while I like clothes that are fairly loose, I have to admit: that jacket looks too tight through the chest and waist. Sizing up might work, but it might also be that that brand cuts for people with different proportions to yours.

Yesterday's more conservative look: 

 

Attolini dark brown, light blue pin striped suit

light indigo Thomas Mason cloth shirt

renaissance-inspired print Enrico Venturi tie

Robert Talbott pocket square

JM Weston dark brown square toe oxfords

I really like the separation that exists between violent color shirt and tie .... and of course, the pocket-square

Nice to see something a little different on here. From your description I bet it looked sharp in the daylight. Is the shirt a little lighter than it looks in the picture?

I know it's tough because the pictures are so crappy, but I'm looking for a bit of feedback or other ideas on this. Worn out to a Tuscan restaurant for dinner with the fellas.

I love the jacket (it's a deep chocolate brown that exactly matches the shirt stripes) and other pieces individually but feel like I could have done better.

I didn't want to wear a blue shirt of any sort and a navy tie, that feels like cheating.

If it matters, worn with dark denim and deep brown riding boots.

Is matching the shirt stripe to the jacket pushing the boundaries of matchy?

Is the tie too country and the velvet too rock and roll?

Would a forest green grenadine tie (I don't own one...yet) be a decent idea?

I really struggled with picking a tie, I have a few neats and discreet patterns that would be passable with a blue shirt, but I held up about ten different ones and everything looked like hell with the brown stripe shirt.

Thanks in advance, I'd like to wear the jacket once more in November before December/Jan rolls around and it is time for the burgundy/midnight/black velvet.

J

You're right, what kind of forum seeks out new members. The healthy approach is outsiders be damned.

It was literally directly, freshly, off the hangar from the tailor's. So i guess nothing will fit properly.

I feel like some people could benefit from reading this book. There's a chapter on how to critique without sounding like a cunt.

Let us all take another look at this well-fitting suit in all its sartorial glory:

...


In spite of your ridiculous and defensive attitude, I think you are to be commended for employing a tailor that is both blind and mentally handicapped. Also, bless you...finally Mens Wearhouse salesmen have someone to look down on.

Are you done?

Sir, I beg you.....Mr Attolini deserves a better looking, more understated tie. please do him right.

As a recent newb, I have to disagree with the fact that people here are snobs. When they give feedback it is mostly constructive and not offensive or derogatory. I have survived WAYWRN for about 6 months and counting and I have to say these people here are helpful, not snobs (well maybe some). When you post a pic here you are being critiqued and people's intentions (for the most part) are to help.

Stax, be cool and listen to Rudals-Noodles.  This thread is the most brutal of them all, and getting upset about it isn't going to help.  A lot of members are very blunt - especially here - and some are downright and deliberately rude.  It doesn't matter.  It's the internet, it's not real.  We all know that the rudest ones have acne and live in their mothers' basements.  That's just how forums work.

 

Take a deep breath, and realise none of this is personal - even when it is.  It's just a mixture of snap observations and languid abuse by strangers who don't really know or care who you are.  And that's OK.  Fasten the correct button on your jacket, post another pic (include shoes) and let's start again.  Everything will be fine, as long as you never, ever get upset.  Promise.
