Tibor, I am impressed....but not sure about the collar. It does not seem to make as strong a statement as the rest of your retro fit.

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.

A new pocket square.

sig worthy.

this. though someone like foo might say that what another thinks looks good, is actually not good, they just dont realize it. i think he takes that too far, but there is truth in there. sometimes our eyes need training as to what is in fact good.

and of course, there will always be things that appeal to one person and not another, and neither is objectively wrong.

does not matter at all. a fit is either successful, a failure, or run of the mill. perhaps a very difficult look deservedly gets extra appreciation when successful, simply because it was an end difficult to reach, but 2 fits, one classic, one complex, both excellent, are equally good to me.

I think the difficulty thing gets more props on here.


IRL no one cares how difficult an item is to pair. They see you and go good or not.

Purpose of dress matters. You want to look good for yourself, but how you're perceived matters as well when you're out with friends or at work, right? So if you're sartorially amazing, but look completely inappropriate for your surroundings and company then you'll get potentially unwanted attention. If that's what you were going for, then sure.


For instance, I could wear a suit to work if I wanted, but it's out of place since my bosses often don't. I can dress well without donning a suit. I'd prefer to keep that going rather than draw unwanted attention form other staff and such.

+ one on 'none' . multiple patterns don't look any better per se, they're just easier to get wrong & take more experience and understanding to get rite.  That's why they're associated with more advanced dressing, but all-solids roks can rok no less. 

 

IMO there's no such thing as a 'beginner's fit'- it's really hard to do navy blazer/brown tie/grey pants well.

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.

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.

x-post from the cbd sprezz friday challenge thread.

 

cbd is my jam...whenever I wear a suit it is cbd...though I must admit I've seen some great suits on here (especially those of member Butler) that I would be interested in getting into.

So, um, PCK1, do you usually have your chair set up in front of a mirror? confused.gif
post #72507 of 78723

Haha good call ;)

 

No I don't...but I figured it was appropriate for an italian aristocrat to be sitting in an ornate armchair...thus why I placed the chair in front of the mirror...also, the fabric of the arm chair is italian....so extra sprezz :p

post #72508 of 78723
Okay. Next time, drag that chair out to a beach, or on top of a hill, or into the forest, then take your picture. smile.gif

Your first comment was sufficient. Your second comment was unnecessary.

He's just joshin' ya. And that would be a fucking sweet picture.
