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.

Kirby's business is clothing related. He can definitely get away with this look.

Kirby, why were you reluctant to get black shoes?

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)

 

I think the shirt sleeves are fine - its the jacket's sleeves that are way too short (2-3cm), at least on your left arm.

The point is that I hate (physically) when the shirt's cuff touches my hand, so I always make sure that the sleeves end at my wrist bones.

 

But I also hate (aesthetically) when the jacket's sleeves cover the shirt's sleeves entirely, not allowing you to see them.

 

So the only solution to both problem is to have relatively short sleeved shirts and short jacket's sleeves. At the end the effect is the same (as you can see on my right arm, where the shirt is probably pulled in by 1-2cm due to my position), but everything's a tad shorter.

 

NB - That's not something I would suggest to anyone, that's just my way of dealing with a pet peeve and trying to look good at the same time.

Now we are talking, Rudals. Very nice outfit. 

 

Estitchy, very nice too!

Technically, it looks like you're wearing semi-formal morning dress, rather than a morning suit. A morning suit would be all grey (for example). Your outfit looks smashing, by the way.

Thanks. Not deliberately so, just a natural function of what I like!

It's been known... in my more affected & pretentious moments. But only for brief walks from one building to another rather than for any extended period of time; coats do have a tendency to slip off the shoulders when worn in this way, especially if there's a strong breeze or you move too violently. How many mobsters must have died in a hail of gunfire, simultaneously trying to flee and keep their coat on...?

 

Truth be told, I couldn't resist taking a photo like that today, given that I was also wearing a double-breasted chalkstripe suit, flashy tie and a flamboyant silk scarf. It seemed rude not to go the full Capone! :D

Thanks, but the only thing I would say is that it's really not a question of "daring" to do this sort of thing occasionally; that would probably be a bad idea. It comes from wanting to wear particular items or wear particular looks (and being fortunate enough to be able to do so in my line/lifestyle). If you don't actually want to wear any of this stuff (or don't have the occasion), then there's little reason to force yourself into it. In fact it would probably be unwise to do so.

It's either this big@ss phone 6 inch that I had in my jacket pocket or I am developing man-boobs. I noticed it too. :fonz:

I, Noodles, am in agreement with you. I am phasing out solid white shirts and solid suits. I am trying to branch out to more interesting stuff here.
