Wax 'n Wool Tuesday

Nice elements, if taken all separately. But they should not be worn together.

1- Orphaned suit jacket has a finish that is clearly too fine to be combined with anything other than its matching trousers. This is why it looks off to other commenters. It's the juxtaposition of a fine garment made of a fine fabric with the rough denim.
2- The same goes for your shoes. They are a wholecut (or look like wholecuts), which, like any balmoral, is better paired with fine, more formal garments. Once again it's the juxtaposition of a fine pair of shoes made in an elegant, slightly more formal style (which the brown color admittedly tempers a certain amount) with the rough denim.

All you'd need to do to make this outfit much better is wear the matching suit pants. I don't think there is any other way to do this because the color of the suit jacket does not lend itself to be worn with, say, a lighter gray trouser. I know you wanted to dress the suit jacket down a bit, but that's something that is just not possible with that particular suit's cut and fabric.

I don't mind the ascot. It's too much an affectation for me, personally, but you personally may be able to pull it off.

I'd probably wear a pocket square with a navy ground color to it.

Cheers

Well said.

Don, there's a hell of a lot going on there.  Probably unwise as a concept.  Yet actually, I think you look brilliant.  Well done, I'm not sure many people could have pulled that one off - the benefit of your regularly taking risks is that now and again you really hit one.  I love that!

 

Stitch, I'm so glad you made that second post.  I was a little scared to scroll up again and check, but at one point I imagine you were wearing some kind of...plimsolls.  I feel quite queasy.  Anyway, glad order is restored: I love everything about your fit, except that the tie and shoes match so closely.  Mine do a bit today, too, but I've an odd jacket so it's not so noticeable.  If only you had a PS again to break up the two-tone effect.  But you're still beautiful.

 

Clag, your poses are becoming irritating.  You look fabulous.

yeah, the GP got horribly distorted in the full fit pic. frown.gif

glad you liked. shoes are less matchy irl, grenadine is darker than the suede and the sheen is dissimilar to the nap. but i am good with it either way. smile.gif

lol PS, one day at a time, buddy. and yes, i am beautiful. wink.gif

1) The vest and jacket are both herringbone.  

2) The pocket square and tie match.

3) I'm wearing a collar bar with a button down shirt.  

 

I didn't say anything about this before because I didn't want to sabotage myself the challenge.  So apparently these things were overlooked or maybe they aren't as offensive as I think they are.  What of it?  

 

To me, the herringbones differ enough in prominence to be fine (the light jacket is much fainter than the darker waistcoat) and the whole purpose of the challenge was monochrome, so avoiding square/tie matching would be impossible. Besides there looks like another pattern on the square anyway. I didn't realise it was a BD shirt rather than just a bar... theoretically I don't like that combo. But if I didn't see it, it clearly didn't bother me! :)

Ah, I didn't realise others had/could contribute to it. It looked to me like it was just his personal selections. Yeah, fair enough then, less fragmentation makes sense.

 

 

 

Really terrible photo quality today. Little looks right; either too bright, too dark, wrong colour, too over-corrected or whatever. Meh...

 

Shirt & trousers are new. Both are summer pieces, but as I only just got them, I wanted to wear them the once now. From Luxire, the shirt has a one-piece collar and is really intended for wearing without a jacket. The trousers are my first such order from them and will need a bit of tweaking. But not bad for a first attempt!

Edit: turns out, when you load from your phone, SF doesn't store the pics. So I'm restoring the links.

Very nearly went denim today. Almost certainly will tomorrow. No pic from yesterday because I wore my Anderson & Sheppard cord suit, and ain't nobody on this threak wants to see that.
