HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 5211

I can't say it enough times, but brown with light blue medallions might be the best possible neat tie option out there.

Rain today, so I'm trying something different.

 


Advice appreciated.

Sorry, Salmon. A orphaned wool suit jacket (SS Napoli?) and grey chinos just doesn't do it.

Hehe, I was wondering if I could sneak that one by you guys. Not a chance. Correct, it is the Napoli. I really need to get a navy blazer, but I am waiting until I can afford the Samuelsohn from Epaulet. Might get it made as a BlazerSuit.

Because I lack a blazer, I am often tempted to wear my navy jacket orphaned. Thank you for laying the smack down on that idea.

Better than Stichy, Claghorn and SB in ball gowns, I'll give u that. satisfied.gif

I don't really rock ball gowns, but my cocktail dress game is tight.

You can pull it off in the interim and nobody outside of this forum would look twice, but not with those pants.

EFV--
What a great take on menswear -- reminds me of the elegant woman who works for the Rake magazine. Don't know if it's your fiancee's height or cut of the clothes, but to my eye looks superior to the other recent examples in this thread!

Please explain regarding the pants. Is it the color or the material? I like to wear cotton pants when it rains so that I can wash them, and because the rain will not damage them. Thanks for your help.

Given the dressiness of worsted or other hard-finish jacket fabrics like that, I prefer trousers to have a comparably dressy crease.

 

Perhaps that’s just me?

 

Cheers,

Well, if a suit is more formal than an odd jacket and trousers, thae in a vacuum, a suit jacket should be more formal than an odd jacket. By wearing a suit jacket outside the suit context, you're already playing with fire. Mixing it with casual trousers like chinos increases the discordance.

@DonCologne, solid work on your last look.

It's two things for me. First is the material, which seems a bit thin. I find that outside of extreme summer heat I prefer cotton trousers of any kind to be heavier as they will hang and drape better. A nice 10-11 ounce cotton trouser would probably work a lot better, could hold a decent crease, etc. In winter I'd look at moleskins.

Second is the color. Generally speaking I do not like grey chinos. I've yet to see a pair that looked nearly as good as grey wool trousers in a similar color. Chinos to me should be in the stone / khaki / tan / olive range.

Without going to deep into this....your pants tell me it's casual Friday and the top half tells me it's meeting Monday. Make sense?
post #78164 of 78717
Thanks everyone, I see the dissonance. Would a navy hopsack blazer work with chinos, do you think? I'm trying to look like a lawyer while wearing cotton pants, which may be a fool's errand.
post #78165 of 78717
Khakis and a navy blazer (aka the California Tux) is a perfectly fine look. I am not sure how lawyerly it is, though. If you are going to do it, however, you want cotton trousers that hang a bit better and can hold a crease.
