HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4628  

post #69406 of 78723

I don't really see a problem with that, Rudals. If there was no white stripe on the tie I don't even think this would be up for debate. It's not like you are wearing a butcher stripe shirt or something similar with such a pronounced stripe.

 

I could also be biased because I wore the same tie today:

You don't need to leave them up for long, Noodles; even just a day or two is enough to get a broader & more usual range of feedback. I usually clear out my imgur after a couple of months.

 

And here's a little secret to make it easier to leave outfits up: no-one - and I mean no-one - really cares deeply about what outfit you're wearing today. Just as they don't care about what I'm wearing today. Or any other poster's outfit. It's all just disposable fun in that good outfits give people a moment's pleasure and sometimes cause them to click the thumbs icon or comment; while mediocre/bad outfits are forgotten almost instantly.

 

Only exceptional outfits - in either direction - are really remembered and those are few and far between for most members, and that was true even in the old days and even a clear majority of the few old superstar members were just "good" rather than exceptional. We just tend to remember the exceptional fits and assign them to the entirety of their outfits.

 

BTW, now that you've reposted it, I agree that the shirt/tie combo isn't ideal, but it's not disastrous. It's just that the effective stripe width of the tie is a bit close to that of the space between the stripes of the shirt. One for a solid shirt, or a hairline stripe, or that microcheck that I think you have.

 

 

I answered this in your tie thread; figured that would keep all your tie advice together. :)

Wise words, as always.

Any chance it can be ordered online somewhere?

Hm, don't see it anywhere. Picked this up at T.J.Maxx. It's a Polo.

Honestly, I think this might be the best thing you can do with this tie. A simple white shirt. 

Yo C.D., I think too much suppression at the waist is making the jacket balloon at your hip. I don't know much but it appears the jacket needs a bit of tailoring. I could be totally wrong on this. I'll defer to others.

I like the colours, and I'm a fan of double breasted jackets, but that one emphasizes your hips. Perhaps roped shoulders are better for you?

I think it's too much suppression at the waist, and it's making the jacket appear skirt-like. It appears your hips may be wider than your chest, which may be accentuated by this fit.

Butchy and I stopped being dicks about it.

Butch, you on board?


nod[1].gif Unfortunately, the powers don't agree that all pics should be auto-spoilered in quotes, so we must live with the fallout of that decision. Personally, I don't understand it, though. It's not like you couldn't un-spoiler the pics if you wanted to illustrate something. Oh well...

Yeah, think about all the stylish Italian dudes who you've seen wearing shantung ties. Were they ever wearing them with flannel/in winter, or always with linen/in spring/summer? It's perhaps an anachronistic association but one that ultimately makes sense, I think. It's a more loosely woven tie, with the imperfections/slubs lending themselves well to the casual, rumpled look of a linen jacket.

Leaving aside the seasonal issues as noted above, I don't see anything wrong with this at all. Looks great. Would look marginally better if your tie were a little shorter.

I despise the no wool ties in summer rule. Not that I think you got it wrong, I just much prefer wool's texture, and find the rule frustrating.

@Rudals When you are putting things together, what is your thought process? Some of the best advice I think I ever got was from HF who told about having a concept in mind while working out an ensemble. If I'm correct, you probably work in an environment with less flexibility than mine, but the same thing can be done. Having a thing in mind that you're shooting for - which is not "Well, I wanted to work this item in today" or "I wanted to put together something SF approved" - can be very helpful in nailing down the things you want. You have to know what you want to say before you figure out how you want to say it. Otherwise, you're speaking phonetically in another language. Sure, you are saying words, but you may not be quite sure what they mean or how you may have phrased things better.

Additionally, as HF said, nobody long term really cares about what you wear except you. This is good because you can then treat things existentially and imagine the critiques and other things you get as thoughts running through your own head. Learn what those voices like and don't like and decide which ones to listen to and which ones not. Figure out which preferences you're going to incorporate and which ones you're going to ignore, then imagine what the ones you're going to use will say when you put something together. Feel free to modify them because it seems like the part of the process you're in is figuring out how you want to think about the way you dress, and the responses you get here provide new things along that line. Once you've put them in your head though, you're free to bring them along to your likes and dislikes because they're what you think. Use them to develop your own voice that you can express through how you dress.
