Have to lose some Christmas fat...

HaHa - great look but the tie looks to me a smidge wide for the lapels.

And this is the classic English way of doing things. The fashionable iGent approved thing is to have half an inch (or 1-1.5cm) of shirt cuff showing, but that doesn't mean it's universally 'correct'...

 

And @sugarbutch, there's no need to be too defensive - I've always liked your stuff, but your fits in this new year have seemed even better. Maybe it's just the photography / layout.

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
Has a few - to my mind obvious - points against it. It no particular order--
- That tie is fugly. Large paisley is largely bad. Two different kinds of large paisley on one tie will always be on the failure side of things.
- You have a decidedly busy tie with a busy square. And that square doesn't coordinate well with anything else in that outfit.
- 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)-
(assuming the pants are cuffed and not just folded over)


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

 

 

There were some compliments in there too, so thank you.

I love the fit of the suit, but don't like the pinstripes.  Tie and shoes are awesome.

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.

Beautiful shoes.  Amazing suit and pocket square.  You all know how I feel about that tie.  :fonz:

I generally don't post when I recycle fits, but the comment made me chortle. I don't know whether the guy associated all white folks in suits with the British or just white guys in country suits with the British.

 

One of my favorite outfits of yours.  If all of your jackets fit like this, I take back any negative things I said about them.  I think the full body shot gives a lot more context.

I like all of your outfits.  I'm very much thinking about getting a black tie because of how you've been wearing them.

Lighting makes it look like I'm wearing a different suit:

 

 

 

 

That tie is super legit.  I'm not crazy about the shirt/tie combo though.

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

All of this is fantastic.

I guess I'd have to learn/would want to wear a suit in a casual way.  I've seen it done well and poorly, but I mostly associate suits with serious business.  I'm not a serious business kind of guy.

(* it is a madras, right?)

 

Thanks.  It's just a plaid not madras.

Nawh man, just a regular carry on.  I didn't even check my luggage.  We took the train to four different cities so I had to pack lightly.  I wrote about what I packed here.

Very nice, but I think the pants could be a bit slimmer.

Only one pattern today.  :slayer:

 

It was super cold today in NYC.  Had to layer up.  

 

I also got some new pants from Uniqlo.  Both are tweedy grey 80% wool.  Not bad for $50.  I was hoping the top pair would be lighter, but I don't have many heavyweight pants so I'll keep them.  I have to get these to the tailor along with a few other items.

Compared with your other fits, that is an absolutely boring, but very nice fit.

Yeah so?
Despite what men's magazines may tell you, there's always something of a trade-off between comfort and style, otherwise we'd all wear nothing else but plush onesies and Uggs.

Thanks.  I agree it's a bit boring, but I like keeping it simple every now and then.  I can do it, but choose not to most of the time.

No point per say, just bemoaning with my stylin ebroes.

@An Acute Style, I really like the new pants. Not a huge fan of the lapels on the jacket though. Looks great overall though. Glad to see you mixing it up even though I prefer when you play with color!

Thanks.  What about the lapels don't you like?

Maybe it's the angle of the photo, but it feels like the the lapel starts to roll too high on your chest and seems a little unbalanced. I like the location of the gorges, but the button stance and start of lapel seem too high. They don't quite seem to lay flat. Maybe ironing with a towel over them would help? They look 'ruffled' if that makes any sense...


Like I said, it might just be the camera angle.
