This would have been excellent with a better shirt collar IMO.
Ah, thumbs …
While thumbs are useful (discussion is better, of course), I think that when comparing one’s thumb-count with the thumb-count of someone else with a similar fit one ought not to be surprised to find the occasional difference in the numbers, often a quite substantial difference. As others, including myself, have remarked in the past, this should surprise no one; in a social network like this there are far too many factors influencing an individual’s decision to give or withhold a thumb for the thumb-count to be an objective measure of the “success” or “failure” of a particular fit. We all know this.
I’m revisiting this because over the past month or so I’ve gotten the impression that some people are stressing inordinately over their numbers (how they compare with others, what they can do to make to the “twenty plus thread,” and so forth), which I think is unfortunate. This thread is a resource, not an oracle. Kick back and enjoy the discussion, save the photos of anything you like (or think might be useful for purposes of blackmail in the future ...), and take it for what it is.
We’re just a bunch of people sharing information and opinions about dress. This should be a source of pleasure, not of stress.
Some nice stuff today, by the way.
Its cool, it sort of looks like you're floating.
Its either the chalk or the sheer volume of psychotropic drugs currently making their way around my system...
Very dandy boot...compliments
Jacket looks a bit too worsted to me for open collared gingham. Additionally, I don't like the square with the shirt, it almost feels "matchy"? I feel like good ole cream silk would look good here. Maybe something similar to what you have with light colors?
I like how your jacket fits.
