Nice. Where is that waistcoat from?

 

Thanks, it's bespoke, but made in Dugdale Caldonaire tweed, which I highly recommend, comes at 13oz.

 @Isolation, I like this fit. In the former that you posted (that you said you thought people didn't really respond too), I thought that the coat was aggressively slim. Would have liked it much more with a less form fitting jacket.

I don't want to sound obstinate, but to me that's kind of the point, it's a very different aesthetic, which one might choose to feel is either subjectively or objectively less good, but I personally like it, though then again, the streetwear guys didn't like it either. I still do, idk. I like that it's a mixture of feminine and masculine aesthetics and kinda funky/modern. I really like how the white of the cardigan peaks out, and I think white paired with blue is really nice, as a subtle accent especially when it's seasonal appropriate in this case due to material and texture.

 

Anyway, time for....

Fair enough. Definitely a subjective thing.

 

 

I like this fit very much.

Frank, that's just awesome! CM casual perfection IMHO.

@Isolation I did not like your previous fit very much not because of its tightness/slimness at all... it was that sweater with thumb holes in it... really threw me off... The rest I did not think it was bad at all.

 

This should be another topic for discussion but I think that most men really feel threaten when another man is wearing something a bit tighter. I have noticed that a lot. I don't know if they feel like they are not the alpha in the room or they get jelous of how women look at that other guy or what... but it seems like that to me.

Personally, I could not care less, I own a jacket with a very narrow waist and you can not believe how many women (and men) turn their head around in the street to keep looking. I won't post it here because I am sure no one will like it but it gets a lot of attention, and I mean, the good kind, the kind that -excuse my expression- gets you laid.

 

Anyways, you have a very personal style and I admire that @Isolation, really. Not everyone can say the same. I like when people have personality dressing. Like @NewYorkIslander or @Dennis Walter, they have a distinctive touch and you can tell who they are even if you couldn't see their faces. Most of your pieces are nice but sometimes you mix it with something rather shocking -at least for me- like you did with that sweater. If the sweater would not have had those holes I would have thumbed you :)

Closest I come to "CM casual," I think.

And I'm not just saying this, but when I got a look at the photo I realized I was taking some definite cues from many of your fits. I need to get some higher rise trousers in the next one. wink.gif

Edit, also think I've got a bit of the @Gerry Nelson causal vibe too. If I may be so bold.

@Isolation I like the simple blue and white colors in that fit just above. Also the balance between the long sweater and the trousers/shirt.

Thanks for the kind words. That's a great outfit and I'm going to be getting inspiration from that when the weather turns colder in Melbourne.

I like everything but the sweatshirt.  Obviously the bag is fantastic since I own it as well.  

 

@Synthese  is the sweatshirt dirty or is the photo playing games with me?  And who makes those jeans?
