HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4666  

post #69976 of 78722

Thanks for the comments and thumb-love.

 

Pingson, I was kind of regretting saying that as soon as I hit it...too much sharing?  Anyway, she's remarkable. :)

 

DeSense, that made me chuckle: I was working out exactly that arithmetic when I read Professor P's reply, and with the same mental image of a school maths exam!

Nah, I'm just ribbing you, I am in fact in a rather similar situation - I'm (soon) 45 and my wife is 31 (but note that I pass the rule with a whole year to spare wink.gif )

No offence taken. :)

You look like the spitting image of an ex-colleague of mine a few years back when he was ~42.

As for neck look fat(ter), have you asked for second opinions? The beloved one? Because I wouldn't be so sure about that.

(working on "a" developing double chin is of course another trinket altogether.)

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.

Hmmm. Hmmm.

 

Hmmm...

 

(that's me taking it seriously).

 

While I don't agree with you that the tie doesn't match the suit, I would also point out that it wouldn't exactly be "randomly chosen" either - The tie matches the shirt, which is what I'm walking around in most of the tie (its a "jacket off" office). The suit is a lighter shade than appears in the photos, so its not your average CBD navy suit, its a little funkier than that. So, I think the tie goes with it perfectly. IMO, of course! ;)

 

Again, its more a matter of taste - I personally do not like the SC / trousers look one bit, but 90% of the fits here on WAYWRN are SC / trousers. I think that is also due to the US / non-UK-Ireland bent of the posts / location of most of the posters. So a suit with an "interesting" tie is probably all I can do really, I understand that to be truly "classic menswear" everything should be toned down, but I guess I'm flirting with the other end of that scale, with my liking of bolder ties and the likes of the crazy Duchamp and Canali designs that are out there.

Yeah but Noodles is only 25 or something.  Not that I'm judging you.

I'm ashamed to admit I had to do that manually. Still working on the solution, somewhat 24+x = (42+x):2 +7 ... :embar:

 

PS: Got it: above [-24:  x = (42+x):2 -17 = x/2 +4 [x2, -x : x = 8)

That's great.  SF quiz: "How many years before mimo's relationship becomes respectable?"  

 

People are getting to work in the morning and finding even more "WTF?!" than usual....sorry for starting this!

Here's another one: if she was exactly half my age when we met, how much of a danger am I to children long have we been together?

 

Soon I will go to speak to her father.  He has more than one firearm and his own law firm.  Keep the pictures for posterity, chaps...

Let's just say that you should be lucky that the two of you didn't meet a year earlier........ mwink[1].gif

Uncle Nemo! I am an old man myself!
I am 32 and my soon to be wife is 24. Oh you bet I like that. Heee ha~~~
post #69989 of 78722
Yeah, and break a leg. You gonna need it. (36 v 18, you were waiting in the blocks for her to turn "legal", right? Or you're hiding something from us...)

(PS and to not spam OT more: I think 16 is legal in mine too, provided parents approve. Scary in a way. To conclude mine (wife, went for 2nds too) is 10 yrs younger and was my age divided by 2 plus 7 when we met. Phew.)

And already in the green on Pingson's respectability chart.  Well done.  Now, let's get back on track: show us your tie.

 

(DS, legal in my country would be 16, but as that's the age now of my eldest daughter, I'd rather not think about it!)

 

FIT PIC, NOODLES, NOW!!!
