Pouring champagne for some hurdler in a wife-beater?

Holdfast has had people killed for less than that.

The entire outfit is muted, and there's nothing that "pops" since your going without the tie.
Right now, the PS matches the pants.
Something like an orange PS might complete the look with some contrast.
Also, the leg openings need to be tapered.

 

See, you can be pleasant. I bet with a bit more practice, you'll be able to do it without the horrid bitter taste that you had in your mouth while you were typing the above. :sly::)

 

I did actually have a burnt orange square in mind for the fit while getting dressed but at the last minute switched to this one as it felt too autumnal, and I'm not quite ready to say goodbye to summer yet. You're correct, it's a much more subdued look this way. I can also understand the leg opening suggestion, but I'm OK with them as is given that they're casual cotton trousers rather than anything particularly dressy. There's a bit more taper there than might be evident in the pic, too.

Besides SF, what are you busy with?
You need to learn golf when you're young, and have time to sink.

 

My days are kind of weird compared to most people's. I have a very unpredictable schedule, frequently getting called out to urgent situations all across the county and in all sorts of different settings from hospitals to police stations and just about everywhere in between. I can always say no if I'm busy with something else... but the work is self-employment so if I turn a job down, I don't get paid. So I find it best not to have too many lengthy predetermined appointments in my diary. I love what I do; every day is interesting & sometimes genuinely exciting (and I get to set my own hours in terms of availability, so I don't usually need to get up before 10 at the earliest), so it's not a compromise to me. Golf will just have to wait until I decide to ramp down how many days I'm available (probably in 3-5 years time).

 

Besides, not having fixed appointments means I have time to do pretty much what I want during the rest of the day: reading, writing, visiting places, shopping, going for walks, etc, etc... and yes, of course, lounging around watching TV and posting way too much on SF! I keep meaning to take up watercolours again (I'm a genuinely terrible painter - no false modesty, either - but it's a relaxing little past-time), but somehow something else always crops up instead.

He Posts pictures of skinny bearded dudes in tight clothing which to me says hipster. I like to dress in a formal classical way which is how Bond dresses. He uses a literary allusion to Gilligans Island, am I not permitted to respond in kind?

you apparently have no idea what a hipster is, and aspiring to dress like james bond is a pretty painful cliche. when you post things like this you become what everyone mocks about SF.

let this not excuse reevolving's stupidity.

Teger you just saved me a Chapter's worth of ranting. 

 

For that I say. Thank you.

I like this PB - it seems that good looking LS knitpolo shirts are hard to come by so I'm curious what brand this is? Cotton or merino? You should do another button up for the Connery James Bond in action look!

That outfit is not worth posting on the internet.
It's just a generic outfit people wear to Walmart.,

But it's not PeeWee Herman or a court jester. Read the thread title.
