Personal opinion, but your recent combos have been much nicer than your usual.

 

I've posted here for long enough to enjoy the game of predicting which outfits SF will like; I'm usually right these days. SF has a very specific look. Not so much in terms of specific garment combinations (though that exists too), but almost always in terms of the image/life evinced the outfit (generally either "stealth wealth elegance" or "modern (pseudo-)aristocratic dandy"). Those aren't lifestyles that my own life/attitude always chimes with: there's a partial overlap at times, which is why sometimes my outfits mesh with it, but by no means a perfect overlap. I guess this week so far is more in tune with SF than usual. :D

 

Thanks!

I aspire to be stealth wealthy, but I'd take just wealthy at which point I would refer to it as rich, you know, U-like.

Ha ha!

 

You know, for me, it's more the concepts that go alongside each of the modes I mentioned, that turn me off them:

 

- The "stealth wealth elegance" vibe has cultural associations with a certain kind of heavily aspirational, "work hard/play hard", often hypocritically Puritan, professional/social climbing attitudes that make me barf.

- I have more sympathy with the "modern (pseudo-)aristocratic dandy" angle, except for the apparent baggage of emotional insecurity that seems to go with the "modern" and "pseudo" components of the concept.

@DonCologne: Haha, the stress of taking pics with a timer. Ah well, we appreciate you taking the time to do so with a tripod outside. Definitely better than my bathroom selfies:embar:

 

@RogerP: nice suit - and chelsea (?) boots. Never seen any like them.

 

@Cotton Dockers: Really like the fabric of that jacket.

 

@Holdfast: Nice outfit, I like that burgundy and herringbone on the previous page. Now I'll let you get back to the game of predicting wether SF will find my shoes acceptable or not.

 

 

Today's fit:

An interesting schema. I can see some of what you are driving at, but other aspects less so. For instance, I can see, in "SF norms" the hypocritically Puritan, if by that you mean those with conservative views about rules, but a penchant for creating said rules in their own image when mood suits. I'm not sure what you mean by the professional/social climbing element, however, unless you also refer here to the rapid cycle through which people move from ignorant noob to dogmatic teacher, which is really how I have characterized your hypocritical Puritan.

 

Of course, how many people are now parsing the two classifications to see in which they fit, hoping that they fit neither and live in the hitherto undefined space that is without guile?

Hirsh, an untucked shirt and jeans is well outside the scope of this thread. Even when they glow in the dark. If you have any "Classic Menswear" combinations to share, we'd be happy to see those.

Casual Collegiate Style. Cream socks to match the cream dots on my navy knit tie.

Cheers,

You all liked my Burberry navy cashmere coat anyway..

I have several Savile Row bespoke projects in progress, so I'll post those once they're done

No harm meant:)

Thanks!
I think I've said this before but even though I would not dress the way you do, I still respect and like your look because you have your own unique style that you confidently carry. Sounds like a kiss ass. Oh well.

No, it sounds like you're being rational.
