Once the clothes are visible and you can see the fabric / colours / fit well enough, then you'll be grand. My pictures aren't best but I don't think I'll get out the tripod just yet (I don't actually have one). I might start doing better shots for the Friday challenge as that's more a fun thing, but for daily "What are you wearing right now" fit shots, your photos are perfectly sufficient.

From my own perspective: Not so much a male model wannabe as someone genuinely interested in visually pleasing photography. I think it's quite natural that you would be interested in both the aesthetics of classic menswear and good photography. How better to present colours, textures etc.

And yes, I'm not one of the better photographers here, even though I like playing around with a camera I lack the technical interest for all advanced features of a camera that's required.

Thinking the shirt choice may be wrong here. Thoughts? Any recommendations other than good old light blue?

I've got a similar shirt, a narrow blue-on-white 'candy stripe' thing. Any time I find it's not working with something, I tend to fall back on another shirt I have which is basically the same thing only it's white self-stripe just with blue *edges* to the stripes (don't know the technical term for this, sorry). Similar effect, but subtler, easier for other things to work with. Maybe it's a cop-out, but it usually works at least as a quick fix. My thought, anyhow. edit: I should say, though, I actually kinda like the shirt in your look.

I memorized 100 digits of pi for math club today.  Happy pi week!  Notice the pocket square/lapel pin color coordination.  #3.14  Also, it was 60 degrees today.  Feeling springy.

Plus, for no other reason than that it's close to the end of the season, a snap of the overcoat I was wearing today:

Guys this doesn't have much to do with this thread, but does a silk ps substitute for a linen one for suits? Including those worn to interviews.

Thanks!

Also @aas, love the watch strap! Have one in blackwatch?

I'd stick with linen for a more formal occasion in addition to sticking to the correct threads... aww snap.

Anyways, yeah. I say linen for more formal occasions so you don't have anything looking too shiny and drawing attention.

Haha i see what you did there. So would linen be fine for ALL occasions then?

That's a more complex question than would first appear.

The following link is a good source for that sort of information.

I would question your understanding of things such as tone, and words. We can agree to disagree since I feel like I'd make better progress trying to teach the alphabet to a doorknob.

You choose to imply bitterness in my writing when I assure you there's none there. It's opinion, pure and simple, with which you can choose to agree or disagree, but without opinions there wouldn't be much point in message boards. Sure my 'tone' may come off as harsh sometimes, life would be boring if everyone spoke and wrote in the same tone.

not directed at ian, just in general. yeah, i cant possibly imagine what life would be like if no one was an asshole. that would really be a miserable existence.

Nah. I think they're just letting you get some brief moments of self-esteem. Generous, I'd say.
