That's a fairly assertive tie for 'round these parts (not nec. a bad thing); I wish it wasn't protruding quite so forcefully from jacket. Would like to see a longer shot, and maybe from a different angle, where tie does not appear so "in your face".

Here you go, including dirty bathroom mirror (not mine): Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I can dress however I want for another 2 months before I'm gainfully employed again, so I don't mind in your face ties at the moment. This jacket has lots of shape and is a little bit longer than my usual suitsupply stuff. I think longer jackets look much better on me, so I'll be on the lookout for longer stuff when upgrading my wardrobe.

Great shot, nice springy vibe. I wonder if there's a way to break up whites between top & bottom? Pale blue or ecru shirt? Other shirt color options?

Nitpick: left pant leg appears a bit short.

Probably caught on the back of his shoe...

Hahaha, this Passagio Cravatte is one of my favourite ties. I love how lightweight the fabric is.

Have you ever thought about making a small Ready-To-Wear line of ties using fabrics that you have a reasonable stock of? Your bespoke ties are outside of my budget at the moment, but the 3-fold ties you made for Exquisite Trimmings were a little more affordable.

I think the trousers are generally either too short or too wide - if you are going to have wider openings on your pants, it helps if they are of a classical length, however if you want them to be shorter, tapering is better. These fall between two stools IMHO.

Orge is very active in his church (maybe even a minister?).

Dimple. Check. White pants. Check. Loud check. Check.

I completely agree. Getting these tapered is on my to-do list.

Very active, but not a minister. I am sort of the ministerial equivalent of someone with a law degree who's never taken the bar exam.

Head to ankles Eidos including our 1 piece collar polo and the wool/cotton flannel DB suit which is perfect for today's transitional NYC weather. Belgian hooves.

(Bolded emphasis mine)

 

This thread  - or rather, its predecessors - has had more than their fair share of eclectic influences in the styles of some of the better dressers. Don't forget, before the forum was restrictively (if understandably, for lack of a better term) called Classic Menswear, it was the more inclusively-named Men's Clothing. And in the old WAYWRN we had guys like Labelking, barims, Fade to Black, and whatshisname who once wore a Thom Browne "skirt", all of whom were just as daring as shoe artist in their own ways. Even more mainstream guys like Parker, FNB & stilmacher had their very unique interpretations of tailored clothing. And when there wasn't a separate SW&D forum, this thread had a blend of tailored and non-tailored outfits all in one thread. I rather enjoyed that thread, though admittedly the forum was much smaller in membership then so it was still managaeable/readable to do both in one thread. The fact that the forum has chosen to fragment itself even further into a myriad of sub-WAYWRNs is worse still, for being a self-inflicted wound. I deliberately don't use the other peacock or casual or whatever thread for those kinds of look as I think it much healthier for developing one's eye to see all kinds of tailored outfit within a single thread. At least, I find it most useful & entertaining when those kinds of fits by others are posted here. For example, remember stitchy's casual fit with the white shoes taht everyone ragged on from a few weeks ago? I didn't like the shoes either, but it was stimulating to the thread for people to see that kind of fit here and it created much thought & discussion. When gdl pops occasionally in with his more casual/streetwear looks, you see the same effect. Same for the rare occasion when someone like shah pops in to cross post. Moo too, to a lesser degree.

 

I think it a shame if thread's aesthetic develops into only accepting outfits such as you'd see in AA. More people in the thread can do conservative business looks well than in the old days, but the variety is much less too. I generally find it daft when people lament the so-called glory days of the forum; each generation of posters brings its own ups & downs. But I do miss seeing truly imaginative fits in the thread. Well put-together imaginative fits, mind you, but imaginative nonetheless. Butler's recent trainwreck challenge flagged up just how unimaginative many of us - myself included - have become, such that when forced to incorporate an atypical item, most of us played very safe.

 

I mean, you dress very nicely indeed, but you wouldn't want a thread filled with just your kind of sober tailored outfit. So why not follow that principle all the way, and and have the thread open to every kind of tailored outfit, and then simply judge each outfit on its own aesthetic merit. I mean, if we accept looks influenced by 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s & early 60s styles, then why not tailored fits influence by the late 60s, 70s & 80s too? If there's even one item of tailored clothing in the look, I'd personally love to see it shown in here. And for me, that even includes seeing really casual stuff like a BD/chino fits. I appreciate I'm an outlier in this, though! :)
