@kulata, that is just perfect. The suit, the tie, I even like the wholecuts here, which I usually don't.

Love the shoulders on these! I'm not sure how to describe this to my tailor either... his english isn't bad, it's mostly how I convey it.
Our conversations are a mix of pics and words.

Thanks man. The suit is custom and I chose the soft shoulder option which is slightly structured and with a little bit of shirring. Shirt is a Luxire copy of my Mazzarelli with some modifications and shoes are Fratelli Peluso.

Spread collars are my go to with a tie. And they do rule.

But I still need my BD collars for my casual days. Couldnt go without em.

Claghorn don't button down. Claghorn don't wear chinos.

 

 

 

(If that leads to some discordance occasionally, so be it. Walking in with eyes open)

 

The discordance here is that some blades point up and some down. 

 

In a traditional knife cape they should point down during the day and up at night, of course.

 

I thought everyone knew this.

Cheers,

Gah, there's so much here and so much of what you are trying to do is outside of MC aesthetic. Also, this is not really the place to ask for such sweeping advice. Post a fit at a time and work your way up in here or take this to it's own thread.

 

I'm going to try to offer a few tidbits of advice. You are really all over the place and lacking basic foundations IMO. You can't experiment as much as you are trying to with success if you haven't nailed the basics.

 

I am not necessarily against where you are trying to go, but the way in which you are going there betrays the fact that you don't really know what you are doing. Sorry, not trying to be harsh. When I first started sometimes I posted something decent, but I really just got lucky because I didn't know why it was decent.

 

General advice:

If you are going to wear a tie, tighten the knot all the way up, dimple it also.

Avoid shiny things more

 

When you get dressed in the morning decide if you are trying to go MC or dandy.

 

If you chose MC then go back to the basics:

 

Light colored shirts like DC said (you could pretty much start with light blue alone)

Pants should be mid to light gray or khaki

Dark colored jacket (generally a lot of your jackets looks like orphans which is a more detailed discussion entirely)

Tie dark colored either brown, navy, forest green, dark burgundy

Shoes brown

 

There is a lot of subtlety to get lost in what seems like a very restricting set of standard colors. As you pick up on these subtleties you will gain a better idea of how to depart in a meaningful way which will improve your overall dress in other areas as well.

 

If you chose dandy (I'm just guessing here because I don't dress this way . . . yet :p):

 

Odd vest alone needs sleeves rolled up imo. EVERY TIME

Dark shirts need to be less shiny and have like some sort of crazy pattern or something that tells everyone to screw off (black shirts are an exception) in other words burn your dark saturated blue and brown shirts imo. Or put them away for a VERY long time

More tone on tone. Generally your dandy stuff has WAY too many similarish colors going on. Just make them the same if they are going to have such low contrast

 

Thanks very much. That was helpful.

 

I'd never heard of the waistcoat thing, but it makes a lot of sense. Thanks.

 

Should I make a separate thread or is there somewhere else I should go to for beginners advice on something like this? I'm still looking for more comments on specific things.

I agree with Eliod. But the tie and the PS are perfectly matched, bravo.

Regarding collars. I wouldn't be happy with a wardrobe that didn't contain shirts with BD, classic turndown and spread collars. I've also considered getting at least one with a pin collars, to satisfy my inner dandy.

Meermin (shoes)

I often have trouble with the horizontal knits, and with the pinstripe shirts, but these are two lovely examples of each, and they look great with each other -- and I think the spread collar reads right to me here. The palette is nicely limited, too.

+1000. That's like the perfect application for those shoes: the birdseye is right for suede, but the relatively hard-finished worsted and slightly aggressive cut are perfect for wholecuts. Not necessarily something that would occur to me, but certainly something I admire quite a bit.
