HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4916  

post #73726 of 78724

know what u mean.  I had a suit made in 8oz, and altho it feels lite and wears cool it doesn't so drape well either. Especially the trews.  

FYI i think yours looks fine, but  I'll stick with > 10 oz/300gpm for everything now.  Getting jackets half-lined really helps, as does having the trews slightly loose-   even if it means sacrificing sillouhette a little.  

Just a thought- If only Minnis would put a bit of cashmere in Fresco.  that would be awsm

Grey day so why not match the skies? Corneliani SC, Boggi Tie etc.

+1 for reduced palettes. Clean and simple. Bravo.

Anden you look good too. I dig light gray jacket on charcoal trou. My only nit would be bals with SC. Have you thought about getting black bluchers for fits like this? I have played with the idea, but they seem so pigeonholed to me. If I didn't have this bal-suit roadblock maybe it wouldn't be a problem. Also I'd be curious to see oxblood here even though you are monochrome otherwise. YMMV

Thank you. I am not a fan of black shoes. I have two pairs that I use and the other pair is RMW chelseas which actually might be the better choice.

Food for thoughts.

Jacket still needs to be altered. (Apologies for using the same tie as last week...)

Great tie!

Thanks a lot! As you can read above, it's a 2nd hand tie from Ebay.

Love you grayscale fit of today! Another 'reduced palette' :slayer:

Thanks for the thumbs yesterday bros, I was hoping to break my current record of 14 but I seem to have levelled out at 12. :)

 

Not posting a fit today but will be doing something for the Friday challenge.

^ Looks really great, Crat. Maybe button your coat to show how the fit is then.

The Friday Challenge is to wear a green tie (one assumes tastefully). I have probably failed in this regard, as today's combo is more than a bit flashy, but I like it well enough. Hope that you enjoy.

AAC-your latest fit is daring and bold. However, if I had to look at you doing a presentation or have a meeting with you and was forced to stare at that for an extended period, I would want to smack you upside the head so that you could have a headache too. satisfied.gif

Crusty that's a great tie! It looks really good and I don't think it is flashy at all. I know you've gone all matchy-matchy now with the PS, but as its for the Friday challenge (which as we all know is a chance to have some fun) that's totally forgivable.

 

Crat, great tie / shirt / suit / shoes combo, really great - but I'm not a fan of the trouser hems, they look a little big and overpower the fit. A non-cuffed trouser leg would be preferable here.

Don't see anything wrong with the cuffs when looking at the full length picture. They're hardly noticeable, and certainly not overpowering. Detail shots can distort things a little.

Clear blue skies here, but grey suit nevertheless...
