I dislike breast pockets on dress shirts.
Food looks lovely but you should get a decent coffee machine wink.gif

 

the escape plan suggests that this is a hotel, crat. they usually don't like it when I bring my own kitchen equipment. I barely travel with my french press and my concical baratza grinder nowadays... rolleyes.gif

 

regarding shirt pockets, I have heard this before but I can't get myself to not get pockets on my shirts. I think they help optically shape my otherwise formless chest a bit. I have one V-pocket on each of my shirts except for on the plain white ones and the french cuffed ones. I probably should work out more.

Also didn't Foo recently teach us that patch pockets should sit very close to the jacket's bottom edge?
On the other hand the trousers look very nice to me, excellent fit.

 

coincidentally this is the shortest jacket I own. it is so cropped that I only ever wear it with denim. I'm not happy with the button stance, though myself (too low).

 

I'm just now trying to keep up with the foo's teachings and I have yet much to learn from him but I always take what he says about proportions with a grain of salt. He is knowledgeable but he has not much real estate to play with on himself, if you catch my drift. So what looks good on a 5'4" fella might not be optimal for a 6'7" chump...

 

 

@the bigwig, is that triple denim with the saddle shoes? I'm not going to comment on the aesthetic since you clearly have your own style, all I can contribute is that the DB coat doesn't want both buttons to be buttoned. undo the bottom one.

Ah, I missed those plans completely. My bad.

Are those two of your German Überhemden™?

Regarding foo's teachings I do not only agree with your point because of his differing proportions but also because I simply dislike some of his preferences.
Still he is without a doubt more knowledgable about clothing than most and he never comes to one of his choices without a lot of reasoning behind it.
Now that you mention it, the button stance could very well be the reason why the jacket looks odd.

Less casual than I usually dress.

You're too stocky to pull that look off. SW&D chic doesn't always translate.

Ha, I DO have a big ass too, squats and all that.. I have sized up 1, might needed to go even bigger, I don't know.

Too snug tbh.

 

Yeah I am looking to drop a little weight then keep consistent, it might still be too snug on the thighs though, I don't know if I will ever be able to avoid that.

Thanks Clap, I'll look into it. I think it's just a matter of making some sacrifices, so I can remain consistent with my bodysize.

You're no longer allowed to wear anything denim related on your torso, ever again. Just stop trying to be the Marlboro Man some kind of new-age mashup of the Marlboro Man does business casual. Its really not a good look for you.

It all depends on your goals I guess. I also train a little but when I notice items getting too snug I just start cutting again. That way your fits will be more consistent.

A navy shirt is okay but a denim, not so.

A year odd later of lurking and learning, time for a fit - 2 guesses who my primary inspiration is. smile.gif

 

 

Ralph Lauren Black Label Blazer

Epaulet scarf

Neiman Marcus shirt

Sam Hober Pocket Square

BR Jeans

AE loafers

Just listen to Rambo and do the opposite.

joshua - i have been liking your fits. i think if you had a tailor take out the waist 1/2 inch - 1 inch it would alleviate the pulling seen under the waistband.
