HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4575  

post #68611 of 78722

So I am in PAris for the week. Any recommendations on where to go, shop, eat?

For a museum to which almost no one goes, which is a shame, as it's a good museum - Musee du Petit Palais (Ave. Winston Churchill - between the Champs-Elysees and the Seine).

To shop - take a look at Septieme Largeur for shoes - 59 Rue St. Lazare (near the Trinite Metro stop on Ligne #12, I think).

To eat in total grandeur - have lunch (if you can) at Le Meurice at the Hotel Meurice. The set menu lunch is 120 euros, but the food is worth it - hell, the room is worth it - second in grandeur for dining venues only to Les Ambassadeurs at the Crillon, which is closed for a total rehab - the hotel as well as the restaurant.

Let's go blue!
This won't qualify for the contest, but it is a tangent of the theme.
The tie is a dark navy. The PS is blue.

(white PS would be better, but 'tis a challenge after all)

Crisp, crisp, crisp! Looking sharp!

CD - like that. especially the top half. i think darker brown shoes might work better there, a different tie might be called for with the chestnut you are rocking. ymmv on that tho.

CP - excellent.

This is going to go against every grain of SF but here we go:

I'm sure pink shirts are a no no but I'm having fun.  Navy Carminas Greeleys to boot.  The collar is too narrow and now that I see in a picture, I think my knot is too big, my apologies.

Notice anything different in the above shot, Rudals? :-)

I know I am late to this discussion, but FWIW I think this is well done. I'm not sure how I feel about this tie, in fact I think I don't like it (herringbone + dots feel a bit much to me here); but if you are going to wear it this is how to do it. Jacket color choice aside, I think keeping everything simple makes this look sharp, despite how one may feel about the tie. One of my favorites from you ETB.

I stared at dark brown and these for about 5 minutes. Decided to break up the darker top with lighter bottom.

For $163 USD that lunch better come with smokin hot topless waitresses and maybe a happy ending.

been there more times than i can count, broham. wink.gif

i figured that was the intent, but with nothing else close to the shoe hue it stands out to me more than it blends/balances. maybe if it was the tie or a PS that was light and was in the middle of your body not at an extremity id see it more coherently. or if you did a PS or tie along with the shoes certainly that would blend everything.

but anyways, i get the idea. again, this may just be me as i see it. im weird.

Cheers, I'm pleased with the reaction so thanks for that. The jacket is part of a suit btw rather than a SC.

Nothing wrong with pink shirts in my book, in fact I was nearly wearing one today. I agree with you about the collars, they are way too narrow no matter what tie knot you do. A lot of that is personal choice, but if you see it yourself you probably know.

 

I like the boots but I'd never wear boots with a suit / formal wear so I can't really comment on them as part of the fit. 

post #68623 of 78722

I went with the boots because they were navy and I was doing the Friday "navy" challenge, otherwise I wouldn't have worn them.  :fonz:

Ah, I missed the Friday navy challenge thing. Isn't it Thursday though?

Yeah but I just thought it ended Friday so you could wear your entry anytime as long as it was in by Friday.
