I love the blurry face, like this is "porno" or something...nice outfit!

Earnest attempt today. Very little sunlight so image quality is meh, but better than the BR pics. No PS.

 

 

SC: Harris Tweed

Shirt: Has a bunch of texture to it, but it's a simple windowpane. I've owned this for years without wearing it much, but I really love the collar and need more like it instead of OBDC's.

Tie: Harrods of England Silk tie ( I love the colors)

Tan Belt

Navy pants

AE Dalton boots in Walnut.

Pretty windy today. Also, potential for fit failure feels high with this one.

Glad to see the progress.
Now...lets tighten up the knot.

Thanks for the thumbs, dudes. The tie is a ConradWu specialty.

Cool pants - those cuffs!

+1 to what Stitchy said. The pants seem to be riding a bit low and the sleeves look a tad short. Might be the camera positioning though.

Cheers,

Very nice tie. The shoulders seem a bit wide, no?

 

@ridethecliche - Your best fit yet! Tie needs a bit of tightening, but otherwise very nice. Those boots look great.

What do you guys think?

 

Wrong thread but this is one of the better suits from the s/s 14 collection

If you are in a position where you've got to choose between interesting ties and internal coherence, and you choose the nifty ties, I can't fault you for that. But if it's possible to exchange the suit for a blazer and trou, it'd frame those ties to great benefit.

 

@Claghorn, this is a very perceptive comment, which I hope @eviltimeban takes seriously. I've noticed this too (and mentioned it before). I think it backs up what you said (at least I think it was you) about it being easier in some ways to wear a suit well, because you can get away with not having to think about the coherence issue between top and bottom. But it seems clear to me that coherence is an issue in a lot of your fits, eviltimeban - it's quite often, nicely-fitting business suit with a seemingly randomly-chosen tie. It's not that this tie is a bad tie (unlike a few others!) - it's fine - but the tie does not work with the suit, the reason being the informal, almost summery, colour and the slubbiness, when the suit calls for something smoother, neater and less casual. Or alternatively, as Claghorn suggests, a more casual SC-based outfit to go with the tie.

 

@ridethecliche, I was almost losing all hope of ever saying this to you but, looking good! That is so much better in terms of getting some basics right. Some people will object to blue trousers, but I'm not one of them. You might also have gone for a more casual tie, but again, that's not a deal-breaker here. This is something to build on.

Too little, too late (for Friday's challenge)

@mimo
Have you ever tried or considered trimming your lower jaw beard closer to the jaw line? Believe it could nicely counter your fuller cheeks (no offense!) and look younger, iykwim.

I don't like that, makes the neck look fat(ter!).  Anyway, I'm 42 next month, and my beloved is 24 the following month.  I guess I'm young enough. :devil:

 

No offence taken. :)

Mimo you know you are violating the well-established half your age + seven years rule, right? sly.gif
