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!

Seriously sharp. You sir are doing it right. (Suit details please?)

Hehe, I don't regularly study in a three piece. Frankly, there are very few occasions in my life that require me to be well dressed. If I showed up to work in a t-shirt and jeans I would NOT be under-dressed. Consequently if I ever want to dress up, it has to be in my free time.

 

I enjoy dressing (trying to dress) well and am really working hard to get better. I learn the most by practicing, and if that means dressing up in a suit on Friday night to go study, so be it. If I waited to dress up for when it was "appropriate" I would never make any progress.

 

Am I sad and pathetic? Yeah, probably.

 

As far as what I am studying, I am currently taking online seminary courses.

I, for one, support your efforts. It's people such as yourself (and others here in CM) that will lead the world back from the horrors of ripped jeans and wife-beaters. So carry on studying in your 3 piece suit (and hell, go get a nightcap afterwards because you certainly don't look sad and pathetic in that suit).

Didn't think to take a full body shot of my wardrobe this afternoon, and it was hardly appropriate to do so in the office. As a result, you get this.

Well I hope its a wood panelled library and you are sitting in a chesterfield with a scotch while you are studying!

You have a slight pitch rotation issue (where the suit sleeve meets the shoulder)--you could talk to a tailor about it, and see whether your wallet cares enough. Also, I would strongly advise some new shoes. Only other thing for me is that the PS seems a bit off or could just be better. The look is great, though, and I liked it.

 

If it was me, I'd add 2" cuffs, better shoes (maybe, http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2730), fix the sleeve rotation, if I could be fucked (90% of the time, I am not), and swap the PS. I like the colour of the suit. What kind of suit is it--birdseye or twill, etc.?

post #65109 of 78717

Fix the trouser length, buy a better belt, fix your tie, and get a white, linen PS, and you're set! I am surprised no one liked this.

What's wrong with the shoes...?

post #65111 of 78717

I have looked at the close-up and they look better. Dunno, just look frumpy and bent at the front...

While this is a really cool tie, I'm not convinced it's the best choice for this shirt, coat, and pocket square--all of which are fantastic. I think a stronger statement could be made with a solid burnt orange or blue knit. This would allow that nifty pocket square to steal the show.

Nice trousers, too!
post #65113 of 78717

The coat, trousers, shoes, and tie are--as always--excellent. But, it is that little hint of the pocket square that steals the show. The choice of that PS color is brilliant.

  Full body and pocket scarf. (Click to show)





PS I thrifted the scarf.  I went to Columbia as an undergrad.  I just couldn't pass this thing up.  

I have never seen a waistcoat like this. Absolutely brilliant. In this rig, you have outdone yourself.


The attire on the posts during the last few pages have been some of the best in recent memory. (Probably because I did not post! happy.gif ) So much to admire and from which to learn.
