RD, don't let Butch corrupt you with his odd ways!  And I think your shoes look fine, too: true, I'd also have maybe gone with suede or a scotchgrain derby.  A boot of some sort would be even better.  Or sure, a loafer if you're lounging by the fire.  But as not so long ago tan shoes were only casual, I don't find yours especially jarring in this context.

 

TASSEKS!

 

My line of thought was that out of all oxfords, full brogues are the most casual. I thought they were versatile enough to cover the whole range from casual suits to streetwear, but maybe I was wrong!

Don't think I ever commented on your pics but every time I look at  your pics, I just say, "Damn, how does he pull off something like that?!" Gotta say you do a pretty damn good job of matching and daring yourself to don on floral patterned ties and other stuff that I can never dream of doing. 

:slayer: I gots me a long ways to go~

You were right. Brown/tan brogues are the light blue oxford-weave button-down of footwear.  Not quite CBD or funeral, and definitely not evening, but everything else with ease.

 

 

HF: your suit, coat and scarf are beautiful.  Your tie is, well, deliberately eccentric?

 

Noodles: nice tie. Would prefer a light blue or fine stripe/micro check shirt with that - I have an issue about white shirt/white PS sucking the life out of a look.  But sharp nevertheless.

That jacket is 100% sweet, though.

 

I appreciate all advice, no matter the thumb ratio. I have a hard time finding anything to wear with that particular tie, so I was happy to make something sort of work. Probably a good sign that tie is not long for my world.

Very nice, Stitches. And that playset looks super fun too.

Rudals, this might be your best fit yet. I've got that tie as well and I love it.

1st post in WAYWRN. Sorry for the bad photos and lack of full length fit pics. I'm going to work on a location for that.

I've been lurking and liking, so now it's time to contribute FWIW. Criticism welcome.

And this is what I was wearing yesterday. (First time I used that shirt, hence the long cuffs. It should be fine after the first wash)

Just received my new "business" suit from Anthony Hewitt in London.

Huh? That looks quite close to a stroller, not a business suit :/

post #64344 of 78717

Sprezz, your sleeves look fine to me.  Personally I like my shirt cuffs to sit on top of my hands.

 

 

Loanshark:

 

- pocket squares are nice and can add personality and balance when chosen well; don't be shy, investigate and experiment

 

- the lapels on your jacket are fashionably narrow, in poor proportion to both it and you, also the sleeves a touch short, and it's a tiny bit tight around the middle causing the skirts to stand up.

 

- your shirt collar is too small for you and looks uncomfortable, also a wider spread collar where the points hide more easily under the jacket, looks nice: I have the very same shirts by the way, and Sr Diaz pointed it out to me.

 

That's the criticism.  However, in colours, textures and tones it's all very tasteful.

Which seems like a fabulous idea to me, especially considering his line of business.  Show us another one with shoes, K.A!

Noodles, that jacket looks too snug, bowing lapels and all.

Sprezziamo, please button your jacket cuffs. Maybe even tuck the thin blade of the tie behind the front. Despite all that sprezz, looking good.

I picked up these Isaia pants for less than $100 at a consignment shop. New with $525 tags from Neiman Marcus. I don't understand how the clothing business works...

You're probably right. Couldn't find my notes. As Ravi Tailor (my tailor - he's was raised in Indian, so his surname literally came from his family's professional tradition) told me, these were the original business suits in London. The pinstripe suit devolved from this into something, at the time, relatively less formal.

A pair of Gaziano Westbury shoes in black. Although I hated to order a pair of black shoes, I figured that I needed at least one really, really nice pair for my wardrobe.

Someone alluded to the type of "business" you are in...what is it that would allow you to wear this to work? Whatever it may be, I think it looks very slick.
