HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4955  

post #74311 of 78717

A big "Oh, yes!" for the top. Smart use of colors and patterns. I like the sassy pocket square.
Who is the maker of the coat?

Nice to know your an academic (university level) and also aim to dress well. Academic2 is obviously another as is Pingson. I'm guessing ClarinetPlayer and a few others are or have been...others?

 

I have to say that in my university, wearing a tie/jacket/suit is largely restricted to Admin or among some of the older faculty. Wearing a PS is not common at all.

 

The standard uniform are jeans/chinos and OCBD or shirt with point collar sans tie, Kenneth Cole shoes or some such. I began wearing ties/SCs as a way to ensure a formality in the classroom that is getting lost in today's cater to the consumer academic world...the PS's I do for myself!

@Cotton Dockers

 

Agree with MF here. Standards are safe, but you've posted a lot and I appreciate that the main posters also try things out, and that I learn from it as from all the others who post often. Was trying something different myself this morning, though not sure how it worked (went for a patterned tie when solid navy would have been safe).

 

Damn, I learned something from Stitch's casual post too just like I learn from his usual CM gear. :)

Not yet!

White jean cut cords are next.

From what I hear they looked pretty good but the quality was not quite so awesome. Good for fun beaters that last a few years or so at most as I understand.

At least half of the people here don't even bother posting brands. In SW&D almost everyone does.

I think that's more because they are dealing much more in current inventory, and people want to know in case they want to buy themselves. That's not really so applicable here on the MC side.

I am an academic as well. Even though I teach at a Business School, most professors never wear a suit, much less a tie. The idea of a SC with a tie is unheard of. So much so even I do not feel comfortable wearing it, so whenever I wear a SC I never use a tie. I reserve those for suits, such as this one below. I can say one thing for tab collar shirts - it really helps to maintain the tie in place during the whole day. No adjustments necessary.

This is not about the things on stitches feet but...........

I don't know if that is true about SW&D but I will say that there used to be a lot more attention paid to proportion, color/fabric coordination, body type etc on this side of the fence then there is now. Experimenting is great but what is even better is knowing when an experiment fails and why it fails. Re-hashing this again but if at the end of the day it comes down to simply, "its my money, I like it, who cares" then the point of the forum becomes moot, if it hasn't already.

I have a Drake's cashmere tie that's similar in color and it absolutely stymies me. I love it and it's got great texture. But I'm really having a hard time pairing it.
So I feel your pain, CD.

For example, I'm sad that no one pointed out that my tie is too wide for my lapels.

i think enough people carry that flag to say that that is still paid attention to. surely there are the "its my money, I like it, who cares" folks, and people usually tell them whats wrong. some listen some dont, but in the end, you cant force someone not to look like shit if they are truly dedicated to doing so.

now, i realize that essentially that is what i said about my boots, but what can i say, im not alone in thinking they work here (perhaps not on this side of the wall, but well appointed SWDers agree with me). id say my track record shows i am more than open to understanding where i goofed, but that does not mean every time i get a criticism i have to agree with it.

Canta, I will take your pronouncements with a grain of salt from now on... smile.gif

3 inch lapels (I've since switched to 3.5....I don't know why it took me so long) and the tie is around 3.6 I believe. Still, it's good to know that it's the in disputed range.
