I got my first thumb in this thread. I think someone clicked my name by mistake, but WHHEEEE!!!!!
Thank you sir!
Ridethecliche is something I came up with in highschool where I felt that everyone was just doing whatever was expected of them and going entirely with the grain and I thought they were riding the cliche's or (stereotypes) that were ascribed to them. I started using it as an online handle. I also used to use SGT.PEPPERS sometimes when playing games haha.
I would lengthen the pants. Also, I like their texture but imo they cry out for a cuff! I hope there is enough fabric to add length and perhaps a 1.75 - 2 inch cuff. Aim for no socks visible when standing, I think they should still touch the shoe.
Also, I think wool socks are those pants' best friend. :)
Too much grey up top imo. I think a standard light blue shirt would do wonders here. Now that I say that, is the shirt gray or is it blue? It looks gray to me. also, I prefer a vest or sweater vest with bow ties, but this is very much just my personal opinion.
Remember gray odd jackets are hard to pair. A navy SC might work a lot better here.
I like the shoes, but they feel a little "dressy" compared to the rest of the fit. It may be a small difference, but perhaps a perfed blucher would serve you better than a bal here.
There's about 2 inches of fabric there, so I don't think I'll be able to cuff them. I should have just enough to let out almost all of it to get a tiny bit of break.
The shirt is actually a faded blue and gray. I was contemplating the plain light blue, but figured that I'd layer patterns for fun. I'm still on the look for a good navy SC. I've been hitting dead ends lately, but I'm sure one will turn up in the next month or so as I thrift.
I think you're right on the shoes. I should have grabbed my black wingtips, though I think brown captoes would have worked well with this as well. I have these really worn brown captoes that I want to pair with these pants once I get one of my tweed blazers back from the tailors.
Thanks for the suggestions!
RTC, this is much better than what I've seen before! I like the styling behind this, though it does scream "GreyFit" If you're going for a seasonal getup, may I suggest some fall/wintery colors : Ambers, Fall greens and such...just a suggestion but overall great job putting this fit together.
Thanks. I'll try this same outfit with a brighther shirt next time. Maybe a burnt orange shirt. I'll mull it over.
I should have submitted this to the monotone challenge! Heh.
