post #65086 of 78717

For the working this night. Sorry for that skinny tie. It´s coming today from Suit Supply, after I see that tie in the german style forum. I had better take a look on the width  and it seems that´s they are tailoring more for younger people. Think I will give it away to some younger guy of my fraternity.

It may seem a little sprezzy, but you should put the backblade of the tie next to the front blade, and dimple them both. This way your tie will be 1-1.5" wider, making it perfectly acceptable. I do this with most of my ties if I'm wearing a jacket with wide lapels or a double breasted suit.

And if I flip the collar over, it can make a lapel of sorts. Weird, but I think it looks a little nutso in a good way.

 

 

 

Not the best pants for the getup, but I think they worked okay. I reached over to put on jeans this morning and they had a huge stain from when I spilled food on them at a restaurant last week. 2 margaritas did me in. Sigh for being a lightweight, but hey atleast I'm a cheap date!

 

Shirt sleeves are a little short, but I also hiked them up for something earlier and forgot to let them back down!

 

i think it looks cool. it's also because of the trousers. you aren't going for classic. And you look like a young guy dressed up. can you try it with one button closed only? you might start a new fashion.

Just headed to the library to study, but I felt like wearing a suit . . .

Thoughts (Click to show)
I chose the suit first. I have been wanting to wear it again for a while but haven't had much opportunity. Only going to study tonight, but I figured, what the heck. I chose the tie next, deciding that a small patterned navy (neat?) would be a good choice against the lighter gray of the suit. Next, I chose the shirt. I actually tried on a light blue gingham first but decided it wasn't "fall" enough. Then I tried a plain white one, but I really didn't like the contrast with the navy in the tie. It looked too stark and washed out to me. I finally settled on this light blue one. I chose some lighter gray socks, though they are still darker than the suit. I chose the shoes next. I was going to go with black cap toes, but I thought the merlot would work better and add more interest. Finally threw in the square. It is probably too matchy, but I am very limited in squares. I felt myself wishing I had a wine paisley (madder?).

Worried that the mid gray is not consistent with fall, especially on an overcast day like today.
Thinking about purchasing some more squares.
Also thinking about some cufflinks.
Also, I REALLY want more spread collar shirts. Looks so much sharper with the points hidden IMO. One thing at a time . . . . :P
Some of you may recognize the suit. I think the pants look much better now, thanks for the advice!

I had a really hard time getting dressed today.  I started with a pair of brown flannel pants, added the red windowpane shirt followed by the hunter cardigan.  I had a hard time picking a tie.  I tried a bow tie, but felt the collar was too spread for it.  I then tried a tartan patchwork tie, but felt the knot didn't work with the collar spread.  I then tried a striped wool tie, but I thought the windowpane and stripes clashed too much.  I put on some red socks to go with the shirt, but found them too flashy given the length of the pants.  My motto: when in doubt go with navy.  I changed to a navy tie and navy sport coat.  I put on some brown socks.  Lastly, I picked the navy/red/brown/white pocket square and the navy/red nato strap.  It think they both tied everything together well.

Gents. Your words have been heeded. Thrifting today led to upping my pant game by like a billion percent. I now own a few fairly nice wool pants. Some might need to be hemmed etc, but the game is afoot.


Let the games begin. Or continue, rather.

ridethecliche (and WTF does that even mean, man?), the nehru is kinda cool IMO, but can't be done in the MC style. It's too distinctive a piece to try to bend to the conventions of MC.


You tell 'im! :D

 

On Nehru jackets, they're cool pieces. They're an interesting mix of old and new. One day, I might get a Nehru suit (and mandarin-collared shirt) myself, in some summery fabric. The thing is, they really need to fit exceptionally well in order to look right, much more so than a normal jacket because of their eye-catchingly different appearance. I know many Nehru jackets are cut loose, but I believe they look best when cut trim.

 

One thing I think looks very bad with a Nehru jacket is wearing a standard necktie & collared shirt underneath it. Go the whole hog, with a mandarin-collar shirt, and button up the jacket nearly to the top. Also, get a jacket with lots of buttons, the more the merrier. 4 or 5 only looks fusty. I would even consider 9 buttons, grouping them into triplets or something like that. The point is that having lots of buttons differentiates it, making the look deliberate and a bit more directional.

After 12+ hours of wear.



Pants look short because of the angle. JK--they are really short.

All that for the library on a Friday night? Now THAT is sartorial commitment.

Don--

hate to see you give up on a tie that's a bit narrow-- what about unbuttoning the topmost and bottom buttons of the waistcoat, and giving your tie a twist to one side so that both blades show while popping the tie up a bit? this would basically take it to / close to the width you're used to; I did it in this pic, liked the slightly less formal look and the tie wasn't excessively skinny.

Worn with the vest as you show in your picture, I don't think the tie is too narrow.
