Your previous posts would probably fit in MC Casual; this thread is pretty dedicated to fits with at least a jacket/blazer, though the occasional cardigan is appropriate as well. If you have an outfit somewhere along these lines, you are more than welcome to post it here.

Your most recent picture didn't feature what you were wearing at all, which is perplexing--hence people asking why you were posting here. I guarantee you if I post just a head shot and a list of what I was wearing, I'd be met with similar "what the hell you think you're doing Claghorn?" type comments.

I'm sorry

The reason I only posted a head and shoulders pic is that I was wearing jeans, which I felt inappropriate for CM!

I'm currently having a Savile Row tailor make me a pair of very expensive fully bespoke Japanese Selvedge denim (from a top mill) jeans, complete with black alligator patch and blue diamond white gold handmade bespoke button.

Can I post these on CM when they're ready please?

They're Definitely not SW!!!smile.gif

To be honest Hirsh, jeans are probably not the way to go either, at least when you're starting out on this thread. (Look at me, acting as Thread Gauleiter after nine months of indifferent fits and snail's-pace improvement. Nevertheless...)

 

OTOH if you match the jeans with a rockin' jacket/tie/shirt/PS combo, that could be very cool.

Actually I match my jeans with handmade Anna Matuozzo bespoke double cuff shirts with diamond cufflinks, bespoke Spanish nappa leather jackets and bespoke Lobb of St.James (the real Lobb at £££££s, not rtw) shoes or boots!

Does that count???

I'm neither fully SW and D nor fully CM, but the people are more civilised on CM, although very friendly on SW and D as well, so I post on both!!!smile.gifsmile.gif

nicely expressed.

 

Hirsch, I'm curious about the boots, but  the diamond studded whoosey-whatsits and the selvage jeans aren't MC.  There must be women's equivalents of SF surely?

With due respect Hirsh, if you post fits on this thread, they will be commented upon. If the fits do not meet with WAYWRN's standards, the comments will be harsh. Furthermore, none of your fits are even remotely within the ambit of "men's classic" - indeed your latest effort appears to be a woman's outfit. (Note that I am making no assumption about your actual gender.)

 

Some of us may choose not to comment. Others may choose to "block" you. But there will always be people on this site who will neither block, nor remain silent. So it's really rather simple: if you don't like having your feelings hurt, then don't post inappropriate fits on this thread.

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the kind words. Suit is RLBL.

Last week I thrifted this Gieves & Hawkes tie for €7 - which was a very rare find here in Dublin.

 

 

 

(I thought about the PS - its probably not the best choice - but I didn't really have anything else. It clashed the least with the rest of the fit)

Awesome fit Mr Crusty.

Do you mean red haired? - then the answer is no, it's brown/white - if you mean red faced, that's part of being an old fart! nod[1].gif

That is an art installation in the park of the Odrupgaard Art Museum where the Van Gogh/Gaugain/Bernard exhibition is presently showing.

Haha, I meant red haired (English is not my 1st language).

crat, looks a little snug perhaps but an awesome look regardless.

probability that hirsh is not a troll - 0.

Great find, ETB, and congrats since it's a rare find in your area. Jacket seems snug on you but the overall look is a nice one.

755 posts in? I know that she was around SW&D for a while. Is it her in the pictures, or did they think that she is pulling them from the web?

No PS is always better than a PS that doesn't work. Generally if I find myself settling when it comes to a pocket square choice, I opt to go squareless. But nice find on the tie!
