Yes, everybody was jealous of how little baggage it was. I save on cloth at the tailor.

Finally back to work! Either power or network were out to my building until yesterday. I did try working from home, but my wife also works from home, the first grader was out of school, and the toddler has decided to begin working on her Tasmanian devil impression. She does a good job so far.


Oh look! I have a tripod again! I felt the need to commemorate the occasion. (Click to show)

Welcome back, Pingson. Looking good.

I think the issue here is that the tie is the star of this outfit, so everything else should be toned down to feature it. Also, solid red squares are pretty tough to pull off. But the tie is very nice.

No, he's talking about the shape of the pants. SB usually wears fuller pants with comparably large leg openings (which I like very much on him).

... and trousers. Two narrower pipes protruding from a wider one. Waist suppression and a bit of trouser tapering and the result looks excellent.

Nevertheless, I'm going to counterbalance your negs on AAS on this occasion by stating that while I find his fits quirky, not very WAYWRN-PC, and occasionally way too busy, I really do admire the consistency of his style. He is one of the closest things we have here to a true dandy - and I mean that in the nicest sense of the term.

Anyway I'm relieved neither of you have turned your attention too closely to any of my own efforts. Possibly you just didn't know where to start. (Also, I haven't had time to post much recently.) I would be genuinely curious to know what does meet your approval in the way of classic men's style.

Fair question.

I only bother to comment on this thread if someone is mostly doing stuff right.

I get that he has much different requirements for what he wears day-to-day. I believe he's a teacher (as is my wife) and I realize that it's kinda a thing for teachers to wear bright colors and whatnot.

So most of the time, I don't comment on AAS's fits. He likes something I don't care for but he generally does it pretty well. I do think it's a little embarassing that a grown ass man is sometimes in all blackwatch eerthang but yeah...

To start, all of his stuff fits quite well. Which alone puts him in the upper echelon of this thread.

But the fit we're talking about

- I'm not totally against horizontal striped shirts but this one is too large a stripe for that
- Even if the stripes were normal style, that shirt would still be too busy with that sort of tie.

This fit is really good (assuming he had to wear shoes like that for touring)-

This would be great if it had one less layer. Either lose the puffy vest or the cardigan.
