HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 5143  

post #77131 of 78719

One of the few Braddock fits I wasn't absolutely in love with. Sweater and pants were less than what I would have wanted.

 

On accents:
In Texas, where I was born and raised, I was often asked if I was from Europe, or had spent some substantial time there. No idea why. This happened most frequently when I was working retail in college. No idea why this was the case--I have a fairly neutral accent. However, I got recently hired to do a small bit of voice work here not because of my real accent, but because of my ability to do a clear Southern accent. And the company I'm doing the work for, as well as the people who selected me, are Korean-Americans. So it isn't just Koreans not knowing what a Southern accent sounds like.

 

It is heavily drawn from Frank Underwood :)

A cuff ain't a roll. You get a sewn cuff on your trousers, they're going to work with anything you throw at them. If you roll them up, as you have there, then you're limiting yourself to super casual stuff.

 

The leg openings on those trousers are too small for those boots, too. You may have big feet, in which case you'll want proportionally wider trousers. They may just be big, clunky work boots.

 

I'd press the trousers, and wear them with more-refined shoes, and then you'd be more-or-less set. That said, the next navy blazer you buy should be more casual: smooth worsted and delicate pic-stitching means that one's never going to be as much at home with chinos as a hopsack/fresco blazer.

I think there are a few issues here, that rowing blazer looks a little lonely without a tie, moreover, the shirt and trousers are far too close in colour, with the jacket just overpowering everything else.

Tuesday, and another perfect spring day is expected in NYC - cool in the morning, but perfect by midday. Today's attire is geared more for the morning coolness than the afternoon heat - a last hurrah for a winter suit before it goes into hibernation.

Six. There's a pattern on the buttons.

 

And no.
