Nice, I like the shoulders : )

That's great, Pingson - +1 on the shoulders, but the whole look is very dynamic somehow.  It's easy to repeat similar stuff, especially when you normally look so great, so well done for taking a leap in a different direction - you landed very cleanly!

That seems to be a very nice briefcase, do you have any more photos of it?

Btw, whatever happened to the "spoiler images in quotes" policy that was so rigorously enforced a while ago?

You either like roped shoulder or you don't, but since the suit is a vintage Cifonelli, the shoulders are the whole (or at least a big part of) the selling point. At least they are part of what Cifonelli is famous for.....

I like the roped shoulders as I am not very" strong shoulderd" to being with and it kind of helps adding some bulk to my otherwise rather slender frame .........

Definitely makes you look more substantial up top; I think the DB shape as well as the shoulders.  Either way, it's a great look on you and very different from your donnish and autumnal (and awesome) defaults.

The suit, tie, watch, and briefcase are all "sleek". Very sharp!

This tie is insane! But, I really like it. There is an air of authority to that shirt collar.

Donnish - ha, ha, I've just learned a new word. I will definitely use that more often nod[1].gif

Real Men Wear Pink. Canali tie, Lewin suit, Louis Copeland shirt.

 

I realise the above shot is sort of washed out, but the tie can be seen better below.

As in you dislike unspoilered quotes?

 

(A pet peeve of mine)

 

Or you dislike when members of the thread encouraged serial quoters to spoiler their images?

Perhaps it's the camera angle or the break causing the pant to look that way. What's the opinion on this style of cuff opening? TIA for your advice.

There are two things going on with Ac's outfit that are worth distinguishing, as the point has wider applicability to how we dress: firstly, the trouser leg opening; second, the overall outfit.

 

On the first point, the actual leg opening is not so large as to be flared; in fact, that's probably a slight taper with a full break. However, the visual impact of the overall outfit (3pc suit with wide lapels, relatively large tie knot and large - or at least, not small - shirt collar, plus the artificial tightening at the thighs created by hands in pockets) that the overall effect at a glance has a retro vibe to it. So the leg opening appears wider that it probably is... I'd even go so far as to say this is a nice example of our perceptual bias quickly matching the overall gestalt look of the suit to "1970s" and therefore "seeing" a flare to the trouser leg. I know I did at first glance too.

 

The wider applicability is that, leaving SF aside, the greatest impact our outfits have is a holistic one. The average stranger you meet will process an outfit instantly and stereotype it into various pigeon-holes. Acquaintances will do the same, but modify those stereotypes slightly by in light of their existing impression of you. All this will happen instantly, and unconsciously. Point being, as long as you get the broad brushstrokes of an outfit right (by "right", I mean "in sync with whatever specific image you want to project to others"), the details really don't matter.

 

I appreciate that this runs contrary to how SF likes to view clothes, but that's because SF scrutinises clothes. Most people you meet will just mentally snapshot & pigeon-hole them. Now, if the details conflict wildly, the gestalt is equally confused. But as long as they're vaguely in sync with each other, the exact details really don't matter. People will see "slim suit", or "70s suit", or "cool kid", or "typical professional", etc, etc.

lol, was expecting that response as soon as I saw the tie, albeit not so instantly!

Looks fantastic; I'm increasingly fond of DBs. Roped shoulders suit you, BTW.
