according to my beliefs, G-d (and my parents) made me, and edmorel made the suit.
derp, sorry i couldnt resist. <3
If you follow instiches' postings over time, you'll notice that one of his trademarks is a top-to-bottom relation between the tie/shirt/beard and the shoes. A few people on a few occasions have felt it to be too "matchy," but I'm not one of them. I like it usually, and here without question.
It's whatever the opposite of spezzatura is. "Thoughtful," perhaps?
Whatever, I think it's within the bounds of reasonable personal preference.
But that's just me.
You've got to admire the man who discovered the long-lost Hanging Gardens of Babylon and still finds time to shine his shoes.
I dont know about that, at least as a general rule. I think CP and HF have both received more praise for their SS suits than for other more heralded brands, especially HF, who regularly wears bespoke Ede & Ravenscroft.
CM may not be exactly brand-conscious as such, but it is still fairly subject to a general trend of liking what's currently fashionable (and within that, to certain motifs/silhouettes), despite it liking to think it isn't. My SS stuff is much more aggressively modern-styled (esp. wrt slimness) than my Ede stuff, so it's not really surprising that its silhouette is preferred by some. Having said that, the bespoke stuff generally gets good feedback too, so to some extent there's a degree of open-mindedness too. I don't write what brand something is, because I don't think it really matters in terms of whether a look works or not, but I suspect most people can easily see what's SS and what's Ede.
Today, feeling very casual and very lazy. Spoilered to protect the innocence of those who only like looks with shirts/ties in this thread:
