HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4606  

post #69076 of 78723
almost forgot to post these from saturday night. an engagement party with a theme of "1950s hollywood glamour"

Don't tell anybody my vintage tuxedo was from 1960…

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

the evening before the event, giving the ensemble a try—notice hair isn't slicked appropriately, haha. also, I wore a 1950s Bulova watch to the actual event, not my modern Seamaster.

Also, full disclosure: it is not a true tuxedo shirt, I know—I faked it with a royal oxford double-cuff shirt (Sid Mashburn) that I starched. Didn't have time to get a real one in my price range, figured nobody would complain too much biggrin.gif

Hi DonCologne,

 

I really like your choice of fabric here : you look great.

 

If I may, though, I think two slight design tweaks would make future suits look even better.

 

Firstly, raising the pockets a little; and secondly opening up the front quarters a touch. I think the combination of those two edits would lend the silhouette some subtle shape and render it less 'boxy'.

 

A previous poster mentioned dropping the button stance but, imho, that element looks superb as it is currently.

 

Left = original | Right = photoshopped per above

Anyhow, thanks, no bother at all. SC is Zegna, cotton, wool, angora mix.
Thanks you kindly, R.

How dare you wear the most basic of colors on your bottom half!

Kidding mimo.

Good fit, SB.

The scarf could be seen as feminine. Its a large square which is how the majority of women's scarves are made but I like it... to each his own.

Thank you kindly! And yes I'm reasonably new and I feel I've learned a lot since my first post, which seems like an eternity ago!

I first set the thumb and after that I klick the spoiler. I reaIy like the upper part and I think that outfit would be even better with a cord or flanell trouser.

Sure, DC, I don't disagree, but circumstances being what they are, this is where I ended up.

with the evil navy pents. of the flannel variety.

almost forgot. this is the jacket that i felt was too big. i had the waist nipped. not sure it looks any better to ya'll, but it feels a lot better and looks better to me.

I'm saying this with a great deal of hesitation, since I am likely pouring gasoline on the "navy pents" flame war, but this is a prime example where mid/light-grey trousers would have been the better choice. Navy works, grey would have been better...... nest.gif

AAS - you are right about yesterday's tie, too narrow for my jacket, and perhaps for me overall. Might be eBay time.

PCK1 - This is all kinds of awesome, but you may want to post that here. Although that thread gets very little traffic.

Wouldn't mid-gray just blend in with the jacket? I'm assuming Stiches' coat is more odd jacket in person than in pics, but I feel like it could come off as two parts of two different suits. 

 

BTW - your tweed suit is fantastic.

 

Stitches - I don't think that jacket looks big at all. Very nice.

I actually thought starting with medium to dark grey pants would make things easy, but I kept running into a city/country problem that I'm not sure was remedied. Might try dark brown pants tomorrow.
