HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 5074  

post #76096 of 78723
That makes sense. I didn't think I was overly critical.

I just don't click the thumbs up button for fit pics that are nothing more than applying rudimentary knowledge acquired from this site.

Don't get me wrong - they're fine outfits. But I was hoping a thread like that would get 1 picture per week, if that. Like a true best of the best.

I think it's far from that. I think it's a combination of auto-thumbs for certain posters and thumbs as encouragement for people who are improving.

The DB would be another nice touch.
The issue is not with colors but more with scale and proportions. He is wearing a very nice FU shirt with a tall spread collar (which I love) and bold patterns; and a jacket that doesn't complement the look. That shirt and tie combo requires going big and bold or just go back to normal clags i.e. wearing a muted patterned shirt.

I definitely get where kulata is coming from. I think a less extreme change would be had I worn a navy jacket with wider lapels (those are 3 inch and I think it would have worked better with 3.5). The larger lapel would make the scale of the check appear smaller. The DB isn't a bad idea. If it were colder, tweed would work. But a patterned jacket would be overload, I think (I think you mentioned a pattern jacket in the post previous to this).

 

Also, the tie is a neat and not a polka dot, so that's a little less bold.

Did you iron a crease into your jeans?

Russ Ackoff, one of the fathers of systems thinking, boiled his wisdom into a series of epigrams called Management f-Laws. One of my favorites speaks to an organization's desire for metrics. To paraphrase: "When we cannot measure what we value, we value what we can measure."

Yes.  They're denim trousers, not 5-pocket.

A structured peak lapel glen plaid suit. It will take you to very deep waters which I am not sure you'll be comfortable with and at worst you'll look like a Tom Ford model:D

Holdfast would probably wear what I have in mind.

I don’t think anyone, including Claghorn, thinks that the number of thumbs is an objective and invariably accurate indicator of the success (or otherwise) of a particular fit.

 

What it is, however, is a snapshot at a single point in time of the degree of approval granted to each fit for whatever reason.  That’s valuable in and of itself.  In any event, let’s take a longer view give it a chance.  If it survives it will be an important part of the institutional memory of SF.  Imagine five years from now, say, being able to go back and see how things have changed (or not).

 

Just my humble opinion, your mileage may vary, etc., etc., etc.

 

Cheers,

It also appears to provide insight into Pingson's calendar. We can tell, merely by browsing through the curated thread, whether he was on vacation or away at a conference, which I'm guessing he is now. The question is, is he vacationing with Stitchy?

Ah-ha~

I wasn't looking at it from a long term point of view like you were.

Very wise words. 

...I think I am really gullible.
