(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! :)

Using the @ sign before a username will alert that user that someone has mentioned them on SF, so long as the user has set up such alerts.

 

@Orgetorix - nice jacket!

 

New HY tie/square, in hindsight probably too much blue:

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.

Oh...

I would have chosen a simple shirt (pale blue or white) instead of this polo. Btw, nice suit.

I completely agree with everything you said, but I do think this thread is very open minded on average. You are certainly not the outlier you think you are when it comes to this.
The new guy (forgot his name) is getting plenty of likes (deservedly so), and all kinds of different looks are appreciated as well. I remember that my 6x1 DB with a 4" tie, inspired by the 80s, got some likes as well, and there are numerous other examples, such as your t shirt fits or doraemon tie. Some more discussion instead of just thumbs, which been elevated to an almost holy status because of Clag's thread, would be nice, but you can't have it all.
Nevertheless, a reminder to be open minded is more than welcome once in a while, lest this thread starts taking itself too seriously.

While people here generally look down upon those fits, I think the ocbd+chino fits where everything just fits PERFECTLY are often as awe-inspiring as the full suit fits that are well done.

 

There's just something about the simplicity there that makes everything pop so hard if the fit is well done.

To be fair, it's much easier to pull off a standard chino/OCBD fit. It only includes 2 pieces of clothing, both of which can be fitted quite easily by going MtM (Luxire, etc.). It starts getting interesting when people are trying to be a little more out there. Do post a chino/OCBD fit though, if only for variety's sake.

I do like Nick's one piece polo collar, you don't see a nice collar like that every day, and certainly not with a DB suit! Looks great, and an interesting variation on the standard fits.

Thanks for providing this context.
 

What are your thoughts on the Classic/Streetwear division, which is arguably a fait accompli at this point in time?  From your perspective, what would determine which of those two fora is the appropriate place to post a particular fit?  Or doesn’t it matter to you?


Cheers,

This still makes no sense to me.

I find that I wear our 1 piece collar polo 4 to 5 times a week at this point with everything from jeans to db suits as it walks a nice line between casual and formal. A normal shirt would certainly be more by the book but I have no real need to dress that way.
