HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4519

post #67771 of 75798
Rudals came to this board months ago with some solid and creditable navy suits but was agonizing over ties cos for some reason in his world he can't seem to find (blue?) ties to complement his navy suits that he likes. Much advice was given.
Fast forward to the present and where are we? Friggin Groundhog Day that's where!biggrin.gif

Hope you can understand that there is a perfectionist in me that just wants to get it right and thus all this going back and forth. I have to disagree with you when you say that I am playing Ground Hog's Day. The issue before had to do with my inability to find the right tie for the suit (I stopped wearing it). The issue now is my inability to or lacking the skills to find ties that match patterned shirts. I get that my process may annoy the F out of some people but I respect the opinions of SF members and so I listen.

And lastly, I think you can always ignore my posts if it drives you nuts. I believe there is the option to block members.

Close your eyes and imagine a pair of trousers.  Any pair of trousers.

 

Now open your eyes, and imagine you're wearing them in this picture instead of denim overalls.  I guarantee that the picture in your mind's eye is nicer.

 

Your shoes are very nice. So is your jacket.  But it appears to be too small for you - hence the quarters popping out from your body below the button, and the odd things going on with the shoulders.  Maybe see if you can have it let out a little at the waist?

Thanks for your observations, mimo. Being a long time lurker I know your disdain for all things denim. I like blue jeans so we won't be able to agree on this.

 

I agree with you on the jacket. While I don't think it should be let out (I still plan to lose my X-mas girth), I think it's too short and the shoulders only fit when I do an unnatural robopose without moving. I will have to let it go soon which saddens me because the fabric is so nice.

Today's shirt was an error on Brooks Bros. part - not a fabric which I would have chosen, necessarily, for a contrast-collar shirt - but, as it was monogrammed, Brooks graciously gave it to me (and made me the MTM shirt in this configuration with the fabric that I did want). I thought that I'd give it a try with a three-piece suit.

Note also that, in NYC at present, it is 5F/-15C degrees, hence the shearling hat and two scarves.

Suit & tie - BB
Shirt - BB MTM
Cufflinks - Penhaligon's (Deakin & Francis)
PS - Ashear
Vintage watch chain
Braces - Lewin
Boots - Paul Stuart (Grenson Masterpiece)
Overcoat - BB
Solid scarf - Olde England, Beauchamp Pl., London
Striped scarf - Castell's of Oxford
Hat - Seifter Associates

Back in the saddle again, although I must confess I feel rather uninspired by the prospect of going through the 100+ emails that have accumulated over the holidays......
