Serious question, is this what you wear when you are literally hanging at home? Do you own a t-shirt and workout shorts? Fuzzy slippers?

Rule was not made up.

 

a real CBD fit entails no dimples

Manton wears CBD
Manton uses dimples.

Manton also called dimples gay. But it was circa 2007 when I suppose you could get away with that. http://www.styleforum.net/t/33066/conservative-business-dress/
(OT - he was a flaming asshole in this thread. Some hilarious stuff for we fashion nerds).

I'm with whoever said it is more work to NOT have a dimple. I think Manton double crossed himself on this one.

So if there was ever a rule to break, I'll break this one 99% of the time, cause I think it looks better. But to each his own.

We drove from Salem, MA to NYC today.  This is what I wore.  If I were staying in all day, I wouldn't wear this.  I rock a pair of black watch room shoes from Uniqlo.  Still working on the black watch pjs and robe though.

I'm short (5' 6") the no break is to create an illusion of being slightly taller. The white trousers are the newer of the two and better length wise. My next pairs will be cut maybe 3/4" longer.

4.5 hours in the car I hope you at least loosened the tie. You are commited #menswear!

Brice, much better in terms of color coordination. I like this outfit a lot. Moving on to the fit of the jacket, it seems to me that the quarters of the jacket may not be fitting ideally. If you'd like feedback on the fit of your clothes from members here, try to get some full length shots. Otherwise, keep on improving!

Hey, thanks Ace! I am not sure exactly what you mean by the fit of the quarters of the jacket. Could you explain that a little bit more in depth for me? I will work to get full length shots going forward from here. 

 

P.S.

 

If it helps to explain anything with the proportions or appearance, I have a macro lens affixed to the front of the Leica.

I think he might be referring to the quarters being closed. A full fit pic may help.

Unfortunately I have no idea what the quarters are. I think my vocabulary is still developing.

It's SF lingo. By quarters we mean the bottom front halves of the jacket. If they overlap awkwardly (see pic #1) we say that they're closed. Ideally, they should look like in the second picture, where they're open. It depends on the cut of the jacket, as well. Some are cut to be open, some are cut to be closed. However, sometimes the fit is just wrong which results in an undesired overlap of the two front halves of the jacket. Usually, it's the front-back balance and can't be easily fixed.

Closed quarters:


Open quarters:


I have no idea if you have that problem or not. A full picture would help.

Definitely have closed quarters on this one. The rest of it fits quite well including front/back so I think it might just be that it was designed to be closed. The suit is a Trussini if that gives any sort of insight to whether it is intentional/unintentional based up anybody's knowledge of their tradition (I have no idea).

I would think that rather than CBD, you'd be looking for CC[hurch]D. I confess that I have spent little time in a pew, but I like to keep up with things out of curiosity. Would anyone in your church actually be offended by the sight of a dimpled tie?

I have long assumed a Freudian association between a good deep dimple and the reproductive elements of female anatomy. Combine this association with the "tie boner" and I think Dr. Holdfast has a paper to write.
