If you enjoyed your clothes, as much as flaming opposing opinions. your fits would be more enjoyable to see. 

we have different opinions, feel free to get upset about it if you want to. in a forum, it happens.

edit: Not going to humor Trollings from here on. -  just fits, what i'm wearing on the day.
I can read just fine thanks. The colour of the tie doesn't really matter, I mean look up a few posts to AAS's fit. If he wore a brown tie today would that be a beginners fit? The navy blazer and flannels (or lets just say grey trousers) is the template and lets be honest, it's a great template. Outside of "SF approved" brands I rarely see brown ties being sold let alone worn, though they are my best seller next to navy so take what you will of that.

I wear the exact combo you are talking about (navy blazer, grey trousers, blue shirt, brown tie and complimentary PS quite often, it's a look I enjoy and I don't really think about it being a template, it just looks good. Sometimes I wear a green tie, sometimes burgundy it depends. I've been in this industry 17 years this year in one way or another (that's half my life by the way), from a bottom rung casual sales assistant to a buyer to now an owner, so are you saying I'm a beginner too?

Now a legitimate question for you, what goes better with a navy blazer than grey flannels/trousers?

We do have different opinions of course, and that's ok, it's good for debate. I just don't see why anyone who has a differing one to you (which is essentially everyone on here) is a troll.

SALMON!
 

There, someone had to say it.

 

Hahahhaha.

 

 

I don't know when I became so preppy, but I like it!

 

Are you listening @J011yroger?

The ignore list exists for a reason gents. I suggest you use it instead of trying to argue over and over again with someone who has no interest in seeing the SF point of view.

why anyone is bothering with this i dont know. the assertion that gray pants are merely a template for beginners is beyond absurd. its as classic a look as they come and it will always be great.

if someone wants to believe that after that the next step is to "advance" to something better, by all means let them. im still sticking with navy and gray as a classic for all times.

This.

 

I have 3 blue blazers and 6 pairs of gray trousers...it's a great palette upon which to paint ones daily masterpiece.

What you actually wrote was:

"I Have 3 Blue Blazers, And am yet to wear them with my Brown ties. -And no Gray flannels, that look is for beginners."

Maybe if you knew how to construct a sentence better than a 1st grader, people would know what you were trying to say. They'd think you're still wrong, and fairly stupid, but they'd at least know what you meant to say.

Up here we have to be harsh on our least adaptable children, or they never learn to survive in these inhospitable parts. Tough love, eh.

This have me a cathartic guffaw, as I wait for potatoes to boil. Well worthy of reposting.

counting the thumbs on the x-posted fits, it seems like Italian CBD has basically won SF for all time :)

If something looks good, it looks good. That's the only criterion of any importance. Doesn't matter how you got there, whether by a staple look of blue, gray, and brown (which 38r goes to great pains, unsolicited, to ensure everyone knows that he dislikes) or a complex TTO or AAS pattern extravaganza.

This does bring up an interesting point: how much does...or should...the difficulty of an attempt matter?

I'm tempted to say little to none, and it matters even less outside of SF. I think that the aesthetic appreciation of clothing is only marginally an intellectual exercise, whereas appreciating difficulty is definitely an intellectual endeavour.

One is not better dressed than another simply because he wears outfits that are more challenging to make work. He is better dressed only if he looks like he's dressed better.

On the blue-gray-brown note: I love it, clearly. It allows for a subtle exploration of texture and hue. It may be a very common look on SF, but I rarely see it in real life. Hell, it's rare enough for me to see someone do a decent job with an odd jacket and trou.

Less is more, in my opinion. I like fits and looks that seemed effortless. Too many patterns and layering and it screams "trying too hard" to me and so that alone is off putting - there are definitely fit pics I totally skip over on a regular basis because of stuff like that, but to each their own. It's subjective for sure.

While on some level I can appreciate what goes into making a difficult look be successful, I still don't care for that length of thought and planning.

It definitely depends on your line of work too. AAS is a teacher and can get away with way more than, say, a lawyer or consultant or analyst working in a very formal environment.
