Sunny saturday of the day:





post #75276 of 78717

@stitchy, thank you:)

 

@YRR92, thank you for the input. I personally liked the shirt and tie as well as the jacket and tie. But I can see why the shirt may seem a little busy with the jacket to some. Still I'm not sure what's wrong with the shirt itself, I really like it :) perhaps you can explain?

 

Charcoal sports jacket

White shirt with blue micro check (makes it appear solid blue from moderate distance)

Rust/ orange tie with green

White PS w/ green contrast

Grey herringbone trousers (too bad I didn't get a complete picture)

That shirt is too bold to be a quiet shirt, and too quiet to be a bold shirt.

 

It's not just that it's busy, it's that it doesn't make any sense with a fuzzy, checked jacket. It occupies a weird place in terms of formality. It either needs a dark conservative suit, or to be worn tieless with a simple navy blazer, or even without a jacket in the summer.

 

As for this fit, it needs a plain navy jacket. The charcoal one is always going to look like the orphaned top half of a suit, while a plain navy jacket would be a vast improvement. I really like the shirt/tie/square.

Thank you for clearing that up, I will keep it in mind :)

 

The charcoal jacket has patch pockets if that helps. Also the smokey colour and very light flannel fabric helps make it more casual IMO, whereas I might agree if it were a fine worsted wool jacket. Either way, I've never felt it to be out of place and like it a lot.

@in stitches I think I get what your saying and thank you. Years ago it used to be where if you were dealt a comment of how or where to improve you should consider yourself fortunate? Even if it sucks to hear it, I always appreciate feedback or criticism as I think we're always learning. So thank you to yourself and to all the others in this thread for their feedback. I came into these forums after 10 years of working in the business world and kind of figuring things out on my own along the way and finally decided to step up my work wear game. I thought I had a good handle on colors and textures from having a background in painting/illustration/design but sometimes that doesn't translate into "classic" menswear. Admittedly I have a lot to learn and a long way to go. Within the boundaries of my budget, I'll get there. That being said. I do have to ask you about your good ties vs bad ties biggrin.gif Help me out here:

Your pick Good tie



I'm having a hard time understanding how the above is good and the other paisleys are bad? Is it due to the suit and ps?

I like that tie. I have no idea how to wear it. But I like it. If pressed, I'd say that shirt was the right choice. Jacket makes it too busy for my tastes, but it's far from being too over the top. In fact, some might argue that it balances the loudness of the tie. When did you pick that up?

 

As far as why that's a better paisley than some of the others, the colors are rich but muted and the tie itself is matte.

 

Edit: or grow a beard? That's not you, is it? Ah, it's from Stitchy's post.

The impression I get, looking at stuff before my time, is that there were plenty of people who are dumb as rocks giving feedback that amounts to "I don't get it." I'd say the level of "herd knowledge" was, quite possibly, a little less than it is today.

 

At the same time, though, there were people vastly ahead of the average, most of whom no longer provide advice on fits. That's not to say that there aren't really knowledgable people on here, but most of them still look up to the "old guard."

Since it's my tie I can explain why I love it and find it awesome (unlike many of the ties posted in the "ugly" section).
As already mentioned: It's matte and the colours are relatively muted. The base colour is burgundy, which is as great a base colour as you can find in any tie. It's loud in patterns, and obviously won't be everyone's cup of tea, but all the colours are pretty compatible with a country palette (green, brown, orange etc). Would I have paired it with grey or navy, and/or worsted suits it would look awful. With tattersall patterned shirt and window pane green tweed sport coat it's in it's natural habitat and thus works (imho). Also, big paisleys in themselves don't generally work that good out of a "country" coloured setting.
