It's my "playful" part of my outfit.................

Spoo - I always dig that shadow stripe suit on you, and someday, I will steal those Kents from you.

Encouraged by some good comments, I am being bold to post another WAYWRN.
It's Saturday, so I wore jeans with a jacket. I did try a pocket square but still it looks weird to me.







While posting, I found I had worn almost the same style last weekend.

Great fit, but shows how much better dark jeans look with a jacket.

Ok Guys, This is my first fit.

The intention here is plain old boring business presentation look. I want to look polished and professional - but take a background to the presentation.

Most of my current clients are in the middle east - the climate is VERY hot and often very humid. So this suit is a very lightweight high twist 160 yarn fabric. So thin it's practically transparent. Drapes beautifully - but also shows every little thing.

Musta made the tailor crazy.






Suit - Canali OTR
Shirt - Truzzi
Tie - Zegna
Belt - Ferragamo
Shoes - Bally (They are very dark chocolate.)
Tailoring - Mario Bosco Atlanta
(Did I mention my clients are total Euro label whores????? )

Go crazy on me guys - quite perfection is my goal.
(God do I need a haircut!)[/SPOILER]

There is something wrong with that suit. The front-back balance is off (please, correct me if I'm wrong, I'm not a tailor) and that causes the front bottom parts of the jacket to overlap as well as the back of the jacket to hang lower than the front. There's not much that can be done about it without severe alterations and shortening the jacket. I wouldn't keep this suit if I could return it, but if I were stuck with it, I'd probably ask my tailor to re-cut the bottom front panels to at least open up a little more. Also, shorten the trousers. Otherwise, everything looks good!

If you want more information, find a post I made about my first MTM suit not so long ago. It had the same problem, but a lot more severe.

That jacket is marvelous! Your style is what I want to grow up to if I ever have to wear jackets on a regular basis.

Indigo Palms linen shirt
Banana Republic lightweight cotton slacks
Polo striped cloth belt
Ray-Ban shades
Citizen watch
Johnston & Murphy disposable loafers
Oldog/oldtrix socks

That is some ugly socks, tb. (sorry, I couldn't resist to return the favor!!)

Perfect pocket square look for a wedding. Festive mixed with a classic background of blue and white.

You did it!

His butler does look a lot like Vox too. Perhaps that's a security measure.

I like it because of the colour, it's very sprezz indeed, together with the fit.

But the real deal is the fabulous fit, particularly the beautifully made natural shape of the shoulders on the jacket.

Add in the perfection of proportion between all the elements (tie, collar, lapel), sunglasses that perfectly fit the face, the sharp haircut, as well as the confidence in his posture.

When it all comes together like this the look becomes greater than the sum of it's parts.

(Whether or not you like the color - the REAL deal is the absolute confidence which is excuded by the wearer. Confidence bolstered from his knowledge in the perfection of his ensemble.)


Dude, get a room!

Spoo, do you ever think you will go completley clean shaven?
post #6658 of 75930
^ The buttons are really close to the edge of the sleeve. Personal preference?

Trust me, you aren't. It's the cheapest DSLR they have.

I dunno, dude... A contrast-collar french-cuff shirt and fedora, yet the shirt is unbuttoned. That just doesn't look right. Also, what's up with the buttons being right at the end of the suit sleeves? Overall, a rare miss from you in my book.

I've never really been a fan of purple and silver until now. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Mrs. Spoo may or may not be in this picture I'm not sure
