HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4692  

post #70366 of 78717

Same old suit as last week... I kind of 'rediscovered' it. And even though I realize it's a tad too big on me now (I lost rather a bit of weight since I've acquired it), I quite like the shape of the lapels and how they harmonize with my shirt collar. Yes, a ' personal pet peeve' ;)

And look at the beauty of this special tie for Exquisite Trimmings.  It is a really dandy grenadine silk and a unique printed by hand with many years on its shoulders and lined just to the internal node with the bar tack of course stitched by hand by the twelve-fingered grandmothers of Campania.  See the hemmed entirely by hand exactly as a hundred years ago!  This picture shows the magic of the transparent!

Bit more conservative today. Haven't worn this Brioni tie before (its a bit more blue than purple as it appears here). Shirt is light blue.

First time ever wearing a pin stripe suit! I've always been leery of pinstripe suits because of my height., but when I had the chance to grab this vintage Caraceni suit, I figured I could at least give it a try. So far I am pretty happy with how the suit looks. Wonderfully constructed suit BTW....

Relaxed? Perhaps. Revitalized? Re-jet-lagged, definitely, but thanks for the welcome back message in any case - it's good to be back here, at least.

Not an easy look to pull off Crusty, but you do it with aplomb.

Nice tie! Try a double FIH if you aren't already, it makes for a nicer knot with these PC grenadines:

Now I am quite convinced that the button stance is at the right position although you guys should tell what you think. 

 

Simply at that time I didnt want to purchase trousers so I skipped it and focused on jacket. I new I would order them some time from luxire so I just wanted to make sure they store the same fabric. FlyingMonkey is right. All these are a good reasons ;)

 

Thanks! Yeah, the sleeve pitch seems a little off, and there seems to be something funky going on with the shoulders, they look a bit too big. The buttoning point looks good though. Is there anyway they'll remake the jacket for you? I'm pretty sure that OTR suitsupply jacket fits you better.

Same here. Love the suit but the tie is...meh~

@L2BR great fit! Pants are a tad bit short.

The shoe colour is daring, of course. What I find less than optimal is when the lacing spread is that wide. Seems the shoes are a size too narrow.
It was Manton himself who said wholecuts with floating medallion have issues and I would agree in this case. They look a bit "clumsy" from that angle (solely impo, of course). No matter what, please wear in good health. And the suit is peach.
