Please don't pull them off. You want the "Streetwear and Denim" section. This is Classic Menswear. T-shirts, running shoes and logo'd underpants are not the thing. Go over to the other side, and I'd suggest starting your own thread. They will love it, I'm sure.

New black Richard James tie. The only thing about this is the off white / cream colour in the tie, does it clash with the white shirt? I warmed up the look by wearing burgundy shoes rather than black.
I see what you mean. I'm not sure I'd say clash, but in a funny way "dingy" though not dirty dingy, if you know what I'm trying to get at.
If you are going to go slubby and stripey with the suit, why not then go for a light blue shirt (not too saturated).post #68872 of 787231/20/14 at 6:58am
ETB, that is an absolute lesson in when a light blue shirt is better: all that black/grey/white makes the shoes look incongruous rather than welcome colour, and the stripes in the tie look dirty. Light blue shirt with the tie's cream stripes on it would be delicious, and also bring your shoes into the game by adding some colour to the top. Yeah, apart from that you're beautiful.
Beautiful suit, HF. Something's bugging me about the shirt pattern with the big herringbone - a weird reference of scale somehow. But you're not wearing a tie with giant electric green lobsters on it, or an inexplicably fuchsia cardigan, so overall I think you're probably beautiful too. I won't mention your collar points because mine are also of the mildly south-facing variety today. :)post #68873 of 787231/20/14 at 7:02ampost #68874 of 787231/20/14 at 7:03ampost #68875 of 787231/20/14 at 7:16ampost #68876 of 787231/20/14 at 7:17am
Agree guys, I also feel the light blue would be better. I've a brand new Lewin one sitting in my wardrobe as well!
Clags, really like that shirt / tie combo. Never seen you in a suit though - do you always go SC / trousers?
That's a suit isn't it Holdfast? The lighting makes it look like two separates. I like the shirt / tie combo for sure.post #68877 of 787231/20/14 at 7:20amQuote:Originally Posted by Pingson
^Dammit Mimo, that would have been THE perfect tie for what I am wearing today. Eternally envious......

Pingson, hard to see any reason for regrets here. The fun thing is that you could look good wearing this jacket in many different ways, as you do here, or wearing a forest green (perhaps even olive), textured tie (wool/grenadine) or even navy as mimo suggests. And any of those ties with this pocket square.
This is really an advertisement for why a few excellent jackets will get you very far (for those of us on a budget). Variety can then come from beautifully matched accessories. Again, well done my academic friend, you put me to shame.post #68878 of 787231/20/14 at 7:24amQuote:
Almost always. I used to need to wear a suit every day. Then I switched jobs and only needed to wear a suit occasionally. Now I need to wear a suit never (unless it's something involving a side job).

^ Ah yes I remember some of those fits now - especially the "English country gent" one. :-)
Funny, if given the choice I would always go with suits. Might be more of a European thing. Or at least, here in Dublin 99% of office workers wear suits (and about 50% of them are awful).
However you do always pull off a great SC / trousers look!post #68880 of 787231/20/14 at 7:29amQuote:Originally Posted by mimo
I'm all about the simple bare excessities.
Seriously, poor form to pick at someone's small error in their second language (how many of us write in a forum in a language that's not our own, and flawlessly?), but actually I'm delighted by the accidental invention of this word. "Excessities" is really what SF is all about: what we consider to be "simple", "getting the basics right" and indeed, "classic and timeless" - the mere baseline, that even in most formal office environments would be considered a vain excess: our "real ancient madders", carefully-selected merino suitcloth, our obsessively-sourced welted shoes and our care in choice of tailor, gorge and buttoning point. Vain, obsessive, extravagant and irrelevant to the many, and yet somehow vital to the few.
These are our excessities. Brilliant word, well done.
Totally agree. Some people just take it to far. People need to be tolerant. Yes there are rules. Like no brown in town. Not much sense anymore. Country style invaded the city. So rules work as a base. For people who want to understand, so people have a base to start. After that, well you can just see it here, people develop a style.
Another rule. Discretion. When you dress so well you will not be discrete, change to what other people wear, square shoes and stuff, and you will be.
One thing we all have in common is that we like/love clothes. Everyone in a different way. I like to keep a bit unique. Who i am, my lifestyle translates to my clothes choice.
I worked for some time in a tattoo studio. One thing i learned about tattoos is that you don't judge others taste. If they like black and white or colorful, realistic or fantasy. It's a matter of taste. You can judge the quality of the work and how well executed it is. I think bad taste is many time easy to agree. Bad fits, you can see when someone does something wrong because they don't understand what they are doing. But you can't judge others and criticize for having a different taste.
People can choose the image they want to show. If they are conscient about that let them be. Rules have gone a long time ago. Something is not wrong because rules say so. Rules change. They are good as a starting point.
you had this. Then it changed. And changed, and changed. I think you guys get it.
