Styleforum Top Pickspost #72482 of 787203/13/14 at 3:27pmwhy 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.post #72483 of 787203/13/14 at 3:43pmQuote:Originally Posted by in stitches

I have 3 blue blazers and 6 pairs of gray trousers...it's a great palette upon which to paint ones daily masterpiece.post #72484 of 787203/13/14 at 3:51pmpost #72485 of 787203/13/14 at 4:20pmpost #72486 of 787203/13/14 at 4:26pmpost #72487 of 787203/13/14 at 5:11pmQuote:
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.post #72488 of 787203/13/14 at 5:18pm
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.post #72489 of 787203/13/14 at 5:29pmpost #72490 of 787203/13/14 at 5:32pmIf 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.post #72491 of 787203/13/14 at 5:37pmLess 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.post #72492 of 787203/13/14 at 5:46pmpost #72493 of 787203/13/14 at 5:50pmpost #72494 of 787203/13/14 at 5:54pmpost #72495 of 787203/13/14 at 6:06pmQuote:
Thank you Sir. I have a fondness for the Edwardian Collar, and Edwardian Sartorial influences in general. The collar is rather quaint, but it does accent the lines of the fedora brim quite well.
