Late entry to the jeans/jacket/tie "tranwreck" contest with a focus on deliberately textural and casual items i.e.: navy knit tie, old bandana in lieu of a handkerchief, oxford BD and well worn alden tassels. Jacket and jeans are Eidos.

As much as I dislike the 70s style, this is, actually, really well put together. :) Trousers are a bit too long (material puddle).

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

 

 

You forgot your monocle.

Hello Pliny

 

Not that much, it's coming from Great Britain a beautiful "pied de coq" pattern, usually you find jacket like this in fact there is three color inside brown, beige and  tan but it doesn't appear in the photo (I don't know why).

Burberry's and other made a lot like this you still find some from the sixties seventies.

Anyway it makes a very good looking that the reason you need to wear a discreet jacket with.

Thank you for the french word, I appreciate,  and forgive me for my english.

I will be in NYC in may if you want to meet me.

 

Sincerly yours

Split was necessary given the volume of traffic/membership, but a shame anyway. I post everything in this thread, but my style doesn't go all the way through to SWD (I like it in the abstract but it's not my lifestyle) so it makes sense to do so even when I wear denim. If I wanted to be like stitchy or gdl and genuinely wore two different kinds of outfit depending on what I was doing that day, then I would use the SWD forum for that stuff.

I read Mark Forsyth's very entertaining, short book on the figures of rhetoric over Easter (The Elements of Eloquence, in case anyone wants a good chuckle), so I appreciate the appeal to poetic structure. I also think it's correct to say once you move outside the straightforward, you need an increasingly sophisticated grasp of how clothes work together in order to make the complicated successful. But I don't share your worry about encouraging a range of outfits. As long as good stuff receives more positive feedback than bad stuff, I think it's still easy enough for even those without a developed aesthetic sense to accept what's good and what's not. BTW, in your case, you wouldn't even had needed that mechanism as you must have had a reasonable aesthetic sense way before coming here. Applying it in practice - and to clothes - is different, of course, but a variation rather than a brand new task. The ones who need the education via thumb feedback are the ones without that sense at all, and they do equally badly in conservative dress as in complex dress I think.

I will follow this experiment with much interest.

 

May I make a suggestion? As well as watching scale of pattern, you in might need to pay more attention to varying colour tones in more complex combinations. The pattern of the tie and shirt are fairly close in scale, and that clash is emphasised by them both being equally dark. A pale tan/pale brown houndstooth or microcheck shirt would have achieved the same goal of adding in another pattern & another colour beyond the obvious for the shirt, while not clashing with the tie.

What, I wonder, does the symbolism of a double dimple say about the wearer's character? A fondness of excess and lasciviousness, perhaps? A libidinous, narcissistic ego out of control?

 

I do hope not, at least for appearance sake...

Pliny, you don't want peacockish fits posted here, but you'll post in French? What a double standard... smile.gif

I feel lied to.
post #76079 of 78722

Decided to experiment today. This jacket needs some tailoring, but before I invest in that I wanted to see if it was worth holding on to. It's silk/linen PRL x Corneliani lightly structured, slubby textured houndstooth that I like the idea of for spring/summer, but being so light presents some issues. I could wear it with white/off-white linen pants, which I may try next week, but in the spirit of Claghorn's boundary-pushing I thought I'd try it with navy odd pents....gasp! The horror!

 

 

 

 

PRL // Paul Stuart BD // Abboud silk/linen tie // No name silk PS // Loro Piana navy chino // Alden Shell tassel
