5'11". truth. 42 semi tall, making most reg suits a hair too short and long suits a hair too tall. this is especially pronounced because my arms are short compared to my other proportions. its also the reason why, when i pick up a 42r suit, the trou need to be uncuffed to be long enough.
i decline to provide my weight on the ground that it may incriminate/embarass me.

they are less CBD but i am not sure they are less formal. DMs with suits are 100% legit.

To hell with the guidelines, I declare it opening day here in Denver for linens.

I would love to kick back in a nice D.Monk. I almost pulled the trigger but didn't since I need to load up on my oxfords.

Cleav, don't make me post your hair picture again.

 

You know I'm capable of it, son.

Ac2, you got me again man. rotflmao.gif

Hasn't everyone got a decent barnet? This from Sunday, I love the knit tie...

What puzzles the rest of us is that if we had hair like that we'd be posting photos of it all the time. 

 

Just the hair, nothing else.  Like, "Here's my hair when I woke up this morning.  Notice its perfection."  Or,  "Just a quick snap of my lunch-time hair."

 

There's been a rumour making the rounds that your hair has its own Twitter account, but I suspect that in_stitches started it ...

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

It has been my impression that monks are traditionally considered MORE formal unless I have been completely mistaken. Either way, my suede monks go great with a suede belt and olive stripe suit

I think the #menswear obsession with DMs has confused things for people.

DMs are serious shoes for serious clothing. Sure they can be spreezed out, but regular black or burgundy cap toed DMs are indeed formal.

Ac - I can neither confirm nor deny those allegations.

6'9" Chocosa! I thought I was tall at 6'5".

I'm very fond of this Canali jacket--the light doesn't pick up the color well, but it's a deep forest green with a few lighter--almost golden--threads in the weave for good measure.  Not in love with the trousers, though, since they don't seem to offer enough contrast despite the texture. 

 

 

Question for you learned gentlemen: if I don't want to wear gray trousers with this jacket all the time, what would make a good alternative?  Conversely, what jackets do brown trousers pair well with? I was thinking about getting one of these from Howard Yount:

or

http://www.howardyount.com/collections/pants/products/light-worsted-flannel-tan

 

Other recommendations welcome, though I don't wish to derail WAYWRN.

Dark brown DMs here I come.
post #74819 of 78717
Yes!

Held - what color is that jacket? Also, almost anything goes with brown trou as long as you have proper contrast.
