HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4329  

post #64921 of 78723

I am 5' 11" and find the two inch cuffs to be a delightful revelation for me.  Maybe it's my enormous square head, or preference for much higher waistlines than the GQ-mangina trend, but the proportions make me very happy.

 

Today I am wearing a Post Imperial square, in all its ostentatiously-frayed glory, with a tie from Yellow Hook that is probably my favourite.  I love those guys.  I just wish they'd get on with making some more ties - they sell out too quick when I've spent all my money  :)

Gorgeous, Pliny.  Jacket, tie, PS especially.

 

Further to my comment above, some quick phone snaps of the Pimperial and Yellow Hook on the hoof:

The lapels lie flush - it's just my holding the phone out in front of me making it bow slightly, especially in the second picture.  Also, although I suppose a DB looks more formal automatically to some, the four-into-two (as opposed to six), contrasting mid-brown horn buttons and patch pockets were very deliberate choices to keep it a bit more relaxed - only the tiniest scrape of padding in the shoulders too for a more natural look.  That and being an odd jacket, of course.  Anyway, each to his own.

 

What makes you say the sleeves are too wide?  It hadn't occurred to me, but I'm always happy to be enlightened...

ill assume i get lumped in here and say, thanks!

I feel like the hobbit at the prancing pony when I see 2" cuffs.

"They come in pints?"

Also, Spoo, that tie is amazing.

Fit for an evening wedding reception. Shoes are Jeffrey West, not ideal but only black shoes I have at the moment.

Thanks!
Sleeves are fine IMO. Any narrower and they would throw out the balance with the width of the jacket.

I always have that feeling about Pliny's socks. Everything is usually great, and then I get to the socks, and I just think 'why do you do that? It could have been perfect...'
