best in days, although the shoe/shirt colors look a little close, and the apparent shininess of the pants makes the fabric look cheap. would also prefer a cuff or a crease if you're wearing them with a blazer.

This is closer to the SW&D side of the street, no? I think the MC Casual objective is more to look like a well dressed, fit dad on the weekend.

The color variations give your shirt an almost 3D effect in the pictures which I'm not a fan of. I also stay away from shirts with buttons that are dark/darker than the shirt.
The color of the tweed looks cool, though. I'd likely pair it with a blue OCBD or light blue pencil stripe BD and mid grey trou.

It is a bad photo as the shirt doesn't look 3D in real life, just nicely Autumnal - I'll look to take a better photo soonish.

I have a light blue pencil stripe shirt so will try that out and the mid grey trousers, thanks Bourbon.

Haha at obviously liking it - I should explain that - I really like it, and mainly because of the Autumnal colours. My photo skills are apparent with a green jacket looking like grey flannel !

I take your point on the square, that patterned side of it is OTT, will not repeat.

So do you think hacking pocket jackets should never be worn with jeans? I love hacking pockets and try to have them on all jackets.

^ The jacket isn't that slim, it's a low photo angle. I'll get a tripod and retake photos quite soon and see what you think.

The jeans are quite boring but a good fit - would you want to see some fading details on jeans in this context?

Thanks smile.gif

Keep saying I will. Need a little more "Vice Mag edge" and a little more "Garden and Gun Mag gentility" than DC is currently offering.

what dad wears a blazer with shined dress shoes and pleated pants on the weekend? or - better question - what dad does this and is not a douchebag?

Ed, I'll consider that a credit to careful grooming of my online identity.


Teger, no. Just need a weekend trip that is not a larger city nor beach nor second rate wine country nor West Virginia

if you do visit, and are going to stay in a hotel, stay at the jefferson. you really get a sense of white privilege and southern segregation that you miss in NoVa.

OK.  I found this site by accident and enjoy the pictures.  I took some pic's of myself and never really new what I looked like in different styles.  I was depressed at what I saw. My pants are baggy, or too tight, rise is too long, the cuff openings are all to wide, my suit jackets are way too long and too large in the back and/or chest.  I am the best dressed or one of the best dressed persons at work and most places I go- restaurants, the symphony, golf course, movies, dancing, etc. I actually get compliments.   I am 68 years old.  I am short (5'4") and weigh about 138, 30" waist, 26"+- inseam, short legs and long torso, large head and neck (16X30 shirts).  I am very difficult to fit off the rack.  After looking at my pic's, I took almost all my nicer clothes to a tailor on Saturday morning to the tune of $800+ in alterations for a suit, a sport coat, and 8 pairs of pants (lightweight wool).  The tailor seemed to understand what I wanted and he used a lot of chalk.  I will post some pic's for your comments when the alterations are done.

 

See what you made me do!

 

Cheers,

Sounds like an appropriately named hotel. Do any of the local wenches offer a full Sally Hemmings experience?

Whoa, man, too much internet in this post. Nonetheless, I will try to engage your substantive points:

Blazer: I don't own an actual blazer, but I do frequently wear a sportcoat on the weekend. I also wear other casual jackets. I like to have pockets for my stuff. I suspect I'm not the only one.

Pleats: Actually, this isn't a substantive point at all. If you're arguing that pleats have no place in MC Casual, you've fundamentally misunderstood the concept.

Shined dress shoes: What is a dress shoe? Most folks would look at my split-toe bluchers and say they were dress shoes, but in the MC tradition, they're more casual. They're also calf, so I would be inclined to shine them. I should not wear these on the weekend? Only suede or chromexcel for Saturday and Sunday?

Of course, it may be that I am a douchebag. Who knows?
