Styleforum Top Pickspost #64652 of 7872211/17/13 at 6:26pmI think the trousers are fine, if you had them tailored / narrowed a bit. they look too wide on ya, but an easy and inexpensive alternative for most of your trousers instead of trashing them.
Jacket, however, looks like very low notches....looks quite dated to me, might be worth getting rid of that one in favor of something from Yoox, etc?Quote:Originally Posted by luv2breformed
Here I am today in my best Stitches pose:
More Photos (Click to show)My thoughts (Click to show)I really like how AAS has been describing his process, so here goes:
I really wanted to wear these pants, so I started with them. I have been getting rid of a lot of pants in my wardrobe, and these feel like they fit pretty well. I decided immediately that I needed a light blue shirt, as the pants are brown PLUS they have a light blue stripe in them. I settled on this light blue/pink/brown striped one (this shirt may not be in good taste at all). I figured the brown stripe would tie well to the pants. With two already questionable items to start with I decided everything else needed to be plain/normal. I picked the navy SC next. I was going to go with a knit, but I'd already worn my brown knit this week, and my navy knit felt too matchy with the SC. I figured the point/semi-spread collar would be fine with silk, so I grabbed this plain slightly textured solid. I finished it off with some of my most conservative brown shoes. I thought of wearing walnut to pick up on the lighter brown/orange stripe in the pants but figured the shirt and pants were already bold enough. My brown socks were dirty so I chose navy, and topped it off with a white linen PS.
I wish I had more spread/cutaway collar shirts
Maybe a pocket square with some pink in it would have tied to the shirt better.
I REALLY like the fit of this SC, I wonder if others feel the same.
Pants and/or shirt belong in the trash?
Better tie color choice than brown?post #64653 of 7872211/17/13 at 7:01pmpost #64654 of 7872211/17/13 at 7:27pmQuote:Originally Posted by The_Foxx

Great! Thank you. Do you just mean tapered from the knee down, or do you have another alteration in mind? If taper, by how many inches would you say? Also, I seem to not be able to recognize dated gorge as I keep purchasing and wearing jackets that are bad. Is there a guideline to go by? I thought slightly lower than the shoulders was about right for an average look. Of course higher than that is much more popular today as clearly evidenced by more of the best fits in this thread. I have not heard of yoox, thank you for the suggestion.
If you don't mind, are the color choices ok provided I update the jacket? I appreciate all of the help.post #64655 of 7872211/17/13 at 8:12pm
I actually like the jacket but dislike the pants in that combo. The jacket doesn't have a ton of personality so I think it's best used if you are muting another thing in your getup for the day. If you have a louder tie or shirt for instance. Additionally, I'd wear that sucker without a tie if I was just kickin' it in the hood. You feel me bro?
Those pants are not doing you any favors right now. The transition from coat to pant throws the proportions off.

Also, just went through a bunch of my SC and the gorge was very noticeable as I tried on several in a row. I ditched this one and one other thanks to your advice, foxx. They were like 2" below the shoulder. Thanks again, I'll keep at it.post #64658 of 7872211/17/13 at 9:01pmpost #64659 of 7872211/17/13 at 9:43pmpost #64660 of 7872211/17/13 at 10:58pmpost #64661 of 7872211/17/13 at 11:22pm
(not in the picture: Belfiore shoes)
Also, what do you guys think about this SC? I found it in an outlet at a 60% discount, the fit is quite good and the fabric is nice, but while I actually like the colours, I'm not sure about how easy it would be to match it with shirts/ties/trousers from my wardrobe.
To buy or not to buy, that is the question (Click to show)
Colours: very light grey (almost cream), lilac

Seriously, every detail in this attire, from top to bottom, raises the standard of sartorial excellence. Those boots are amazing.post #64665 of 7872211/18/13 at 3:58am
I'm in mono today.
(apologies for the water splashes on the mirror!) :-)
The tie is a rather loud number by Duchamp. I know it probably won't have many fans on this forum. Sometimes I like to wear things like this though, especially around the office when the majority are wearing non-existent ties or ill fitting shirts and suits.
Is a cold day in Dublin today so I had to break out the wool overcoat.
