HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 613  

post #9181 of 78724
I had a bunch of multiquotes saved, but losing them just capped off a long ass and annoying day.

Anyhow, thanks to all for your opinions... I felt the jacket was Okaaaaayy... not great, but as Nii said, I was experimenting, because Im so tired of putting a navy blazer with red pants... c'est la vie...

A few of you had good stuff today too.... you know who you are, LOL

Random Old Guy: (walking up to me as we exit the El) Hey, counselor, are those brown shoes?

Me: Oh, no, they're burgundy.

ROG: Eh? Well, they look brown to me…(pregnant pause}…The judge is gonna throw you outta court for that, you know.

Me: Have a nice day! (walking away briskly).

EXEUNT.

I know of a judge who refuses to hear lawyers who are not wearing black shoes. Brown is for farmer frown.gif

Google justice Mary Southin. A hard ass's hard ass.

What on earth makes you think it is possible to both be a "bad ass mofo" and have a walk in closet?

The shirt and suit blend together, and the tie is lighter than the shirt.

V V- While your point regarding the similarity in tone of the subject's shirt and suit may be valid, I don't believe your method of substantiating it is applicable for two reasons. Firstly, I'm not aware that anyone's color blindness is so extreme that they see in black and white and secondly reducing any two adjacent colors to black and white can result in matching shades of gray depending on the hues and saturation. One could easily post a picture in color of a red rose on green grass that in black and white would appear as two identical shades of gray. Point taken... but process not so much.

It's just a tool to help diagnose, something that I learned working in graphic design. It's not a hard-and-fast rule.

Thanks Nii!

In Finland it's enough that you just have some shoes to go to the court biggrin.gif

You have a nice vibe going on. Even though I don't share your love to sack suits and some shoes that are a bit "clumsy" for my taste, this is maybe the forth or fifth fit in a row that I've liked a lot!

Love about everything in this one. It's simple and it's working!

ah, this tie and collar - i purchased the tie (jil sander) on impulse for next to nothing from an outlet store, but don't really know what to do with it. although i like narrow ties, it's too narrow for most of my lapels, too shiny for a casual outfit. oh well.

tbh, it just doesn't fit you well. Collar, shoulders, arms - they all look "uncomfortable" sitting on you. A jacket should rest on a body; yours doesn't appear to do so in the pics posted. Since you mentioned Victor, compare how his jacket rests on his body compared to yours (feel free to substitute any of the bespoke or even very careful MTM wearers in the thread). It's not a matter of yours being too big or too small; it just doesn't have the right general shape around you in lots of little ways that add up to it looking a bit off. Sorry to be so harsh.

 

(It's also too short, but that's a matter of personal preference.)

Dr Mengele has clearly been busy. First StyleForum itself, now vox & IST. The experiments continue...

I'm trying to stop multiquoting, and use the Thumbs Up feature instead for positive feedback. You can provide a quick comment in the box with constructive feedback as well as the bits you liked. It would compress the thread nicely if others also chose to use it this way, I think. You can then reserve the multiquote feedback for longer/more-detailed advice. Much less time-consuming that way.

 

But since I've quoted you anyway(!), I'll comment here instead: nice top half; trousers a bit too bright. A few shades darker red and it would have worked better IMO.

Keep it for casual looks, but use it at night, where the sheen (and informality of width) works to your advantage.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


First time I've worn anything particularly SF-y this week I think:

Nauseous. Nauseated. The first means “sickening to contemplate”: the second means “sick to the stomach.” Do not, therefore, say, “I feel nauseous,” unless you are sure you have that effect on others. Strunk & White 1979: 53.

Hence to me it is Nauseous.

Yours,

A. Pedant.

Strunk & White make me both nauseous and nauseated. See, e.g. What Not to Do as Writer.
