While plenty of adult beverages were consumed, there were not enough to warrant that picture.

I don't know whether to be happy or sad that Kiton fits well.
As for my other trou, since most of my stuff is found secondhand, it's rare that I get a "modern" cut of trou. And even then I have to be careful, because many years of rowing left me with rather athletic thighs and glutes. I am trying to hone that (and so, so many other aspects of fit) as best I can on my budget. But it's a gradual process.
One thing I know SB will point out: They're 2" cuffs. That may contribute to it substantially.

why would you possible be sad? its a great fit!

i am well aware of the difficulty in getting pants to look good when you have "thick" thighs, as i have the same. you just have to be more selective, and also try and stay away from anything with a very slim top block. just my opinion of course.

I'll see if he can make a special time-travelling appearance this week, just for you.

 

It's actually not quite as wild as it sounds; from across a table, you probably wouldn't be sure whether it's Doraemon or not unless you paid it close attention. But it's still pretty wacky.

 

It's one of two ties I bought in Matsuzakaya's Ginza shop many years ago; the other was a fairly normal Henry Poole navy paisley (worn a couple of weeks ago), so I wanted to balance out my tie-buying karma that day. ;)

I thought so. What is "SC" if I may ask?

post #72200 of 78717
SC = sport coat, and yours is quite nice.

Tons of great fits from the past few days, too many to name. 

 

@GMMcL - A thrifted cashmere kiton suit that fits you? Holy Moses.

 

Giving the POW shirt another go, this time with a solid navy SC:

Very true. To voice what you're not saying: The slimmer fit trou that people like down bottom fit turribly up top, and the ones that fit up top look like MC Hammer pants down below.
I've experimented in slimming but have ruined more pants (and one Caruso suit, arguably) than I've salvaged.
The search continues....

"Thrifted" by someone not me, and paid handsomely (though well below market) for it -- as my wife learned, much to her serious disapproval, this morning.
And it didn't fit. Originally. Luckily, my tailor is highly skilled (when properly motivated).
Great square.

The Immortal Stichy is correct. And if you wear the quite nice SC use a straight-fold white PS (that is Style Forum code for "pocket square") which will give it a nice, clean look and mute the intense pattern a bit. I am saying this in the nicest way I can: Please don't ever wear that tie again.

In stitches, MrDaniels,

 

Thank you, gentlemen. I'll burn this tie and won't wear this PS with this SC.

Speaking of ties, which one may work here?

dont burn it, sell it!!!

probably a solid navy or possibly some shades of solid brown. the SC is pretty bold, best paired with more subued ties imo.

crz, hope you're well

Good advice here, also great place to ask that question is http://www.styleforum.net/t/375309/noodles-good-natured-advice-thread/3360#post_6988654

I like the SC, BTW.

Blue or Choc Grenadine tie would work a treat, but you'll see all that over on the Noodle ^

With a SC like that I'd go for something with some texture or a discreet motif. Maybe something knitted, a grenadine or a woollen tie.
This maybe? (Click to show)

Id like to chime in on some previous posts about the virtues of SF as I have noticed since becoming a member.

I do enjoy this thread sometimes as there are a number of members who truly do post some outstanding fits. This forum has been great to me, since I use it more as a "shopping" tool. I have discovered some great vendors on here which I would never have discovered without it.

Some members have mentioned the frequently used terms "SF approved" and "SF not approved". I think there are a lot of conformists on here that will just go with whatever some of the more popular or more tenured members say, no matter what it may be. YRR said it best, that SF CM has a certain look right now, and this is leading some of the newer members to believe that anything they chose to post out of the perceived "norm" is incorrect.

Be an individual and don't worry about not posting your favourite jacket because it doesn't have a 4" lapel, or not posting your favourite pants because they aren't cuffed 2".

SF should be about finding individual style. It would make the postings much more interesting.
