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.

from before the snow.

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.

better option? perhaps. but sometimes its fun to do something else. a man can only wear gray and brown pants with his SCs so many times before he gets bored to death. not to mention, i wore this SC last week with a very similar shirt and tie and with light gray trousers. tryna change it up a lil bit this time.

as is well documented, i often have issue with the, "would have been a better choice" critique. sure, its often valid, and sure sometimes someone may not even realize that they made a suboptimal choice, and in that case, its helpful and important feedback to tell them where they could improve.

but sometimes, if something works, and was chosen with the knowledge of what they were doing, than imho, the critique that is left is either it works or it doesnt. in this case, i think the navy trou work very well, and feel free anyone to correct me if im wrong. but do i know that light to mid gray would have been the obvious, and perhaps more optimal option? of course i do.

please dont think im gettin all Y U MAD THO here, because i know you are a solid and well intentioned dood, and there was no :flame: intended there. it was more of a #jussayin reply.

@Cotton Dockers - thanks. didn't know that thread existed. am still finding my way around here. :)

I don't see a city/country problem there, CD, though "city/country" is kind of not doing it for me anymore as a major paradigm. It's part of it, but it ain't the be-all-end-all.

 

I do think those trousers are a shade too dark. A gray in the same shade as the green in the coat would probably sing, or light tan moleskins. Square/tie/shirt/jacket is great -- unistripe oxford, perhaps? The jacket is very Vox.

 

As for stitches' rig with the blue trousers, they work well, but there's a lot of  blue all up in there. Pink shirt? Pink shirt. Tie with some pattern? YYY-yep.

 

EDIT: Wrote that before your whole post there, stitches. I don't think the "optimal choice" is always the thing to do. I'm never in a suit, for example, but if I were, I would probably go for the path of least resistance. Similarly, if somebody only occasionally wears a sport coat, then it makes sense for them to do things that are absolutely going to work -- always the "optimal choice."

 

If you wear the same type of thing a lot, then making the safest choice everytime could easily seem boring. I'm in that camp, but I can understand why some folks might not feel that way.
