Decided to go Fred Astaire for mass. The archbishop quite liked it.


Swapped out the tails with my navy db for brunch with the family:


You win Style Forum for Easter Sunday. Hands down!

I second that sentiment. I don't think it's any accident that Shoe Artist has posted three or four fits in a row which seriously push the envelope of classic style, and yet none of them have screamed "fail".

 

Good colour and texture coordination, and rather than just tweaking the slider between City Boy and Landed Gentry, he's striking out along a perpendicular axis of RockStar/Grunge. Some might say that dimension belongs more to SWD, but personally I think it's high time it was recognised as being part of Classic Style.

Of course, that makes everything more difficult. But hey, life wasn't meant to be easy. Right?

You were in the hood! I went to work for a few hours just a few minutes walk from Grotto. I went there for restaurant week and quite liked the food!

Get anything on newbury? Trident is one of my favorite coffee shops and is right at the start of the street near hynes.

How was the Boston part of your trip? Are you sticking around for the marathon tomorrow?

Er, no. I don't remember typing the word "pirate". That would be your word, Pliny.

 

Dressing like a rock star could conceivably be "classic style" though. After all, that style of menswear has been around for over sixty years now. The Beatles and the Stones were very sharply coutured during the early 60s. Carnaby Street style in the mid to late 60s borrowed heavily from classic influences across several eras.

 

Whether one accepts this possibility would depend on one's inherent degree of conservatism. Rock star style (and of course I am not referring to the excesses of hippydom/psychedelia/glam here) involves mixing influences, which militates against stylistic cohesion, but does open up new aesthetic doors. This has always gone on - think of 19th-century dandyism, or gangster style from the 20s, which involved a similar mix-up and exaggeration of styles, designed to catch the eye and make an extroverted statement.

 

My guess is that Shoe Artist is well aware of the stylistic influences he is mixing together. I don't think his fits are happening by accident. I'll concede though, that it's risky and difficult to carry off.

@Cox--  Not saying it's not a valid style, and not making a value judgement.  But that look can't be found in AA, or Esquire, or Flusser or Boyer etc.  and it's certainly not within the norms, to date, of this thread.  There is a 'Peacock' Thread./  It'd fit rite in there.

I think butler's jeans fit was sadly a miss for me.

Pliny, were you referring to Shoe Artist's first two fits? 

 

I'm curious to know what you make of his most recent one, with the three-piece suit.

For today Easter sunday in family I'm wearing something more classical.

 

 

I suddenly realised who you remind me of, Shoe artist: :)
