Trust me, you do not want to see. Unless you have an appreciation for Oompah Loompah Couture.

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.

I find I tend to notice it, whether it's done well, or not, when it is more complex, or wharves you want to call it. If you miss, it's much grander failure than if, for example, you have not quite enough contrast between a solid shirt and striped tie. But when it is die exceptionally well, I also find it catches the eye all the more, because you seethose successes so much less frequently.

I think the club collar is a good shape with the fit, but that that one is too narrow, or too cutaway, or both. Especially with the scale of the hat, that collar almost vanishes.

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

It comes down to whether we are taking about a competition. In the challenge, I think it merits some consideration. It also does in the context of a particular person, in some ways. For example, I think AAS works in a setting that allows his creativity, and bold choices. His students probably enjoy it, either genuinely, or a bit at his expense. In either case it probably helps him to connect withsome of his pupils a bit more. In a more conservative setting, it can just look like (and might be) attention grabbing. It really comes down to the end goal. If you put something together for a Friday challenge, to get votes from the SF faithful, effort counts to an extent; at that point it's a game. If it's for a presentation to the board, only the end result matters.

In some of my research about personal branding, etc, it basically advises to be as human as possible, avid to let people see you that way. The result was I stopped worrying about protecting what I said online, and started worrying about what I did and said online in the first place. So, now, as you do, I just post things I'm not worried about/ashamed of etc. Much easier this way, and it has actually led to the things I like to keep private being more private.

This week's challenge has, I think, pushed a lot of people to do something different than they usually would , but that still falls within the realm of their normal dressing habits. It's led to great fits, obviously, but also to some more collegial discussions -less "this is good but do this next time" and more open ended comments - and I quite hope those two trends continue into next week!

The blazer is solid navy. the hat is black and proud, though :-) it's debatable, but I actually wear my black fedora and homburg quite a bit.

You misread my question, it wasn't what goes with a navy blazer other than grey (you'd be misguided to think grey is the only colour there), it was what goes better with a navy blazer than grey.

@batchplease - that kind of posting from a new member is uncalled for, whether you think it or not.

My answer is almost everything, I loathe that it has become the norm. Even hate the concept of "Norm" on a forum for discussing styles.      As Stitches  worked out. I am sincere, And honest. I enjoy when others try new things, And will also fight the idea of "wear this only"  when i (and others) think there is room to improve.

 

if you follow the trends, you will either look like someone else, or be soon outdated.  be yourself..

i would rather look like the boring norm for the rest of my natural life, than look like that fit you have on. your loathing of the "norm" has seemingly pushed you to some odd zone where you don only non normative clothing, and in my most humble opinion, its looks horrific.

and to note, who the hell are you to say someone is not being them-self when they wear something that is boring or normative? maybe they like that, it appeals to them personally, and they are being them-self. not everyone has this insatiable urge to not wear classic and normative clothing to the point they end up looking like a cartoon, and think that it looks good.

that works for you, great, but dont expect everyone else to start on that path.

sidebar - within the very boring combination of blue and gray, there is ample room for anyone to express their individuality in the pieces they choose. see the uniform challenge as an example of many many fits within the same genre, and yet all were expressions of the particular wearer.

So after calling everyone bland, your comeback is to show us the fashion-forward-never-dull-but-always-snappy-and-fresh way of dressing that involves un-ironed collar points and a badly knotted tie?

It's amazing what "interesting" bargains are to be had at The Salvation Army Surplus Store. Or maybe they were pulled out of their dumpster?

And me a noob?! More like a member who's been here for a long time and got banned for speaking my mind on IDIOTS like you.

Get the F outta here.

I know you're trying to be a smartass here, but you do realize that many of us shop at thrifts right? My closet would have like three things in it if I didn't. I love the J Press jackets that I've thrifted, but they essentially cost a weeks pay for me full price.

Make this about taste if you will, but try not making it about class. It makes you look cheap.

jeezus… @ 38R by any objective standard those fits are at best incongruous… at worst (like the one above) just f'g ridiculous. nothing about that goes together… at all. srsly, it looks like measured trollery.

@ Batch… shitting up the thread isn't helping no matter how much you dislike him or his fits.

and jfc… lastly, listen to Stitchy. nod[1].gif

Normally, I'd give you some heartfelt advice on how to improve. But seeing this "fit" after all you've said, for some reason I can taste a bit of breakfast in my mouth.

I like the shoulders on that suit, Rudals.
