I wanted to wear these shoes yesterday, but decided against it at the last minute.  I planned to wear them today and choose these olive/brown pants first to go with them.  I picked the shirt next.  I oxicleaned it two weeks ago.  I haven't worn in in several months.  I thought the brown went nicely with the olive and tan.  I picked the brown wool herringbone tie next.  More brown, but also another pattern. I thought about other brown ties mostly solid, but thought this was an interesting non traditional pattern mix.  I decided to go all solids after that.  I went with the tan vest.  More brown, but also similar to the shoes and some more texture.  I thought it was going to be too much brown so I added a navy sport coat and navy socks next.  I ended with a solid white pocket square and a brown silk knot to echo the brown and white of the shirt.  So here we go.

 

 

 

 

 

I must say that your matches are very interesting. You do not have anything out of place. Compliments.

What is the fabric of your shirt? Who manufactured the stuff? I love it.

Thank you, sir.  The shirt is a heavy cotton twill.  It's from TM Lewin believer it or not.  I got it about two years ago.

The minute someone mentioned yoox i thought that wouldn't work for you.
This is what i would do:
Choose simple ties over bad patterned ones.
Your jackets seem to long or large in the hips to me. Altering them instead of buying a new one wouldn't be better?
Other thing you can do. Buy One SC that fits you well, maybe spend a little more. Do it with time. Some people here look like they have new clothes everyday. Not everyone can afford that.
Buy piece by piece. For instance don't use ties, go to those later. Don't do it all at once. Go slower. Start with a small wardrobe with good pieces. It's good to use cheaper stuff to test how it fits but if you spend too much on cheap stuff when you do the math that could be enough to buy something better

Today I took some loose inspiration from DonCologne and Holdfast:(I apologize for some of the blurriness in the low lighting)

I started with the jacket. I added contrasting cords to match the vibe. I picked a blue ocbd next which was similarly casual. I felt a knit was required and I chose red/burgundy to pick up on the overcheck. I figured the pocket square should be light colored, I chose cream silk to contrast the jacket and bring some lighter color up top. Finished with casual brown loafer and comfy wool socks.

I hope that vintage store isn't where you're currently getting stuff, man-- because honestly, between the tie and the black kiltie loafers.....not good, they gotta go!

I think vintage is hard to do well, and that there may be many who try but few succeed in finding good pieces and wearing them in style. You're probably better off working ebay or waiting for a good markdown at suitsupply or yoox. I'd much rather have a preowned boglioli jacket from ebay and two $45 ties from suitsupply than to have a dated look absent of the sharp style and sharp look you can achieve by learning from many of the forumites here who do it well!

(Thanks for the recs. I'm not likely to buy any of those new, but I'll keep an eye out for stuff like this and there's a famous mens vintage store in town that I might have to revisit.)

I can see that actually. The thing is that I can't wear suits to work. If I did, then this would all be much easier. Only a couple of the surgeons here wear suits every day and most of them don't as they instead go with a SC and slacks. I can do the latter, but my wearing a suit would be quite out of place.

Ah, this must be the Formosa, right? Stitch, everything here is killer and tailored to perfection. And with suede shoes and the Hometime-- you, Sir, are badass.
can't wait to get back into suits and sportcoats again myself in bout 10 days!

This is a great combination, but the silhouette isn't particularly flattering.

Yes. It's great. Not exactly something you read through, but it's good for a quick reference if you don't want to bother with all the trouble of digging through journals online. It's also written well enough for occasional cafe reading (its use yesterday).

 

It will be in all likelihood accompanying me to my Kuala Lumpur vacation. My wife may come as well.

 

 


On a different note, the last couple of pages have been awesome. The last week and a half, I've been messing with fits that had some elements which were a bit off or unusual. Gonna return to safe and conservative to ride the wave of awesomeness that has seemed to have struck this thread.
