The hand in the pocket reminds me of middle school, getting called to the front of the class and having to try and hide a spontaneous hormonal incident.

I suggest you stop buying socks, ties, pocketsquares, cufflinks etc etc and focus instead in finding a bespoke tailor for your work clothes, and finding a design aesthetic you like that works with your body type over on SW&D.
Browse SW&D, look at runway shoes for inspiration, find a couple of designers who you think you like and experiment.
As nice as the details may be in lux brand RTW, it doesn't count for anything if the fit isn't there and the person doesn't naturally fit the lux look. Socks, 1 million fold ties, pocket squares, watches etc are give or take and I think confuse the underlying style here and cause people to become obsessed with items instead of personal style.
It's a trap easily fallen into.

you make some excellent points here hendrix, some of which i am painfully aware of.

i think i am interested in both. purchasing items, and developing my style. i purchase things, and try them out, in the quest of seeing what does and doesnt work, and through that, developing what works best for me. but no doubt, i often get sucked in, and go overboard with buying cool stuff that may not really work best for me.

part of the issue is, that the clothes i like are often not what really does work best for me. i think a more casual, and round look would suit me better than the sleeker dressier look. sadly, the sleeker dressier look appeals to me more, and i feel more comfortable looking that way, even if i may not look better dressing that way. that is a struggle i have to deal with.

as to bespoke, i dont think there is anyone locally that even does bespoke, let alone good bespoke. also, im pretty sure it is way out of my budget. frown.gif

additionally, for j00 reasons, i am more comfortable in dress pants and a jacket, than khakis and a casual shirt. that just adds another layer of difficulty to finding the best look for me.

either way, you certainly raise so valid points, and have given some good suggestions. i do appreciate it, and will do my best to keep that in mind.

thanks for taking the time to offer your help and advise. much appreciated.

sidebar, i have only purchased 1 PS in my life, and i dont think i even posted that purchase. nor cufflinks. but you nailed me on the ties and socks. smile.gif

Casual stuff from the past couple of days. I suspect mixed reactions, to say the least... devil.gif

 

Pics are both from near the end of their respective days, so a little more untidy than usual too in some respects.

The undershirt kind of kills the second look. Just go all Iammatt and let your chest hair fly.

Hey Keith, the suit is from Thick as Thieves.

I think this look would benefit from darker suede shoes and belt. The bottom half here is very monochrome to the point of look like PJs with the feet in them. Of course I'm exaggerating here, but you get the point. I like all of the pieces here, but when put together the bottom half looks like...I don't know...mud?

Actually, I had this same sentiment. That's a nice looking shirt (and the other pieces are nice, too), but something needs to stand out.

I believe Victor Pascal downtown claims to do bespoke: http://www.victorpascal.com/ but he uses end-of-bolt fabrics. I think the only good bespoke choices near here are Field's in Georgetown and WW Chan when they visit DC.
