HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 5045

Cordovan can welt up in the rain. Suede with synthetic sole is probably your best bet for leather shoes in the rain.

AAS, just refer back to my fit from two pages back for an example of shoes that can stand up to a bit of rain. C&J Exmoors with storm-welted Dainite soles. Built like a brick shithouse.

 

You know, it does nothing but rain in England, and there are puddles everywhere. (Even the word "puddle" is quintessentially English.) So of course, if you want a shoe that can resist a spot of poor weather, you simply have to go British.

 

I also have a pair of Loake 1888 Bedales which I will trot out for inclement weather. Not exactly dress footwear though.

It's still cool and rather wintry here in NYC, though at least nice and sunny, hence the very dark colors for today's attire.

I give thumbs up based on how you look and don't give rats as to who you are. I am a regular fan of Claghorn but I just don't give him thumbs up. If he wore that white shirt/purple tie combo everyday, then I will never give him another thumbs up. And Stitchie? Heck, even my wife complimented on his pants when we were meeting him. That made me extremely jealous smile.gif

Back to normal. About as straightforward as I get.

I don't like the tie. Your jacket sleeves are uneven and a tad bit long and the length of the jacket is short. :nest:

His left shoulder is slightly more forward than his right - not at natural rest. None of these types of fit pics can ever really tell you sleeves are slightly uneven or other similar minor fit issues.

That said, I also dislike the tie. Ha.

Instead of just giving thumbs up and just moving forward, I wanted to nitpick. Don't get me wrong, Clag's bad day is better than my best day so I am not trying to bash him or have any ill intentions. Just want this thread to be more productive. Maybe I shot myself in the foot by nitpicking on one of the best dressers in WAYWRN. :brick:

I think today might be one of the more SF approved fits, but I cannot excuse the fact everything I am wearing is in dear need of a dry cleaning. But wrinkles aside, any suggestions?

The shirt and tie and too "business" for a sport coat. Also, some might say that you shouldn't wear braces with a sport coat either. I agree seeing a belt just looks more right with a casual outfit. Also, I personally hate seeing belt loops if you are wearing braces.

Everything you wear is too short. I don't think his is too short at all.
