HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4863  

post #72931 of 78717

Bad webcam pics, but just to give you an idea. It's suddenly got so warm here in Tokyo, I broke out the summer pants. There are very lightweight wool by Mediterraneo - quite high-waisted and unsually for me, pleated. But you know what? They feel great and just 'freer' all round - things don't tighten up when you put your hand in your pocket for a start. I am a slim bloke (I run competitively and do triathlon) so hardly the kind of build that 'needs' pleats for comfort, but I am really starting to think that higher-waisted, pleated trousers are just better...

 

Other deets: jacket is wool / silk by Aquascutum; tie by Passaggio Cravatte; PS by Post-Imperial; shirt by Maker's Shirt (Kamakura); anonymous vintage tie bar; shoes by Stemar.

Wow, some great fits. Holdfast, I especially enjoy the DB bow tie combo. Could never pull it off.

 

On my side, even though the quality of the pics are crap, I really like how this 3-piece with a DB vest turned out.

RTC - if you are going to do a crazy item, it has to be razor tailored. As such, it looks like a 3button smock coat, or a doctor's white coat died green. Give that thing some better shape, fix the sleeves, do something to the pocket flaps, and you'll have the bizznatches begging to drink your green beer.

Very classically elegant. Have you ever considered narrowing the sleeves a bit? I've noticed the billowing on all of your suits.

Thanks @MrDaniels

Ehh, coming the day after RTC posts a green coat, I up and do this. Possibly too casual for this thread. Shirt is a tattersall.

 

Feedback is welcome, though of course this is measureably less sedate and coherent than what I typically wear (I say it works, despite the disparate formality).

However, cutting them short like Braddock has always been frequent enough - and especially these days, when the outfit underneath is often cut similarly short - not to be a particular issue. I do agree with both of FlyingMonkey's posts upthread about a) preferring a calf shoe in that look, and b) it being one of the best fits in this thread in a very long time.



Bow-tie day today. Forgot a square, but when I took the photo and noticed that omission, I actually liked the effect so didn't add one.

Absolute Class, Elegance, and Charm. Phenomenal! One of your best, and one of the best ensembles on this forum. Magnificent!

BTW, Holdfast's bow tie from yesterday's posting is awesome - great shape, and worn with swagger with a D/B suit.

Makes me giggle like a little nervous girl every time. 

Will she notice his attempt at a stealth stealing out (or) in? What will happen if she catches him? Will she be understanding and forgiving or unrelenting and accusatory? In essence, how will he get out of this?! (@synthese can do these so much better. mate, please give this one a shot!) 

 

PS: Man! Am I glad I'm not wearing this right now (or ever)!
