To be able to wear this in public... I was thinking of getting a MTM Stratford white tuxedo shirt (as shown in the picture, with high collar) pluss a long loop. Combined with a sinlge breasted vest a and double breasted suit jacket with silver/golden buttons. And ofc a topcoat over that, however, is there any topcoat with that kind of button placement or similiar on the marked at all?

What do you think?

This guy is going to get his ass kicked dressing like this in my township. Doesn't matter if it's "bady boy" look.

How about something slightly more contemporary?

Yes I think something more contemporary could work very well. "I'm the dandy highwayman so sick of easy fashion The clumsy boots, peek-a-boo roots that people think so dashing So what's the point of robbery when nothing is worth taking? It's kind of tough to tell a scruff the big mistake he's making"

I thought this was a place to discuss fashion, not trolling.

My high school chemistry teacher (a total geek) had one of these things made for a couple hundred dollars and he wore it to his wedding. Here's a picture I found off his facebook.

You're looking for a costume. I'd be ready for any backlash it invites. 76 posts is a little big for just a troll, but you look and smell the part. The suggestions that you put a contemporary spin on it are totally legitimate. The more sane way of handling this would be look for something a little less archaic, but with a lot of the pomp you're looking for. Wing collars, ascots and the like can work (in a very eccentric way) with modern dress. Older styles of boot etc... could also be a more subtle (only relatively speaking) way of doing this.

Pvrhye, I disagree with you. A wing collar in public if not for white or black tie is totally inappropriate. You could maybe get away with an ascot on the weekends with the right crowd and enough confidence. Truly, your only option is to wear a 3 piece suit and overcoat or a trouser/vest combination with a slim fitting topcoat that doesn't go over a jacket.

I surely wouldn't do it, but I get the impression this guy is going for the total fop look. I figure stopping shy of the full Louis XVI is the only sane practice. I get the impression he wants to dress like Oscar Wilde or something.

I think he looks for something like Sebastian Horsley's style. Remember to post some pictures in WAYWRN! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
Is this what you are looking for? Why would you dress like this?!

How can people post such distraous picutures, it's a shame. I'm not opting for a silly costume in pink and red, but obiosuly none have a clue about how they dressed.

I have heard many good things about Grenada TV version Sherlock Holmes.
But I also agree that you should not wear frock coats on 21th century. Even Duke of Windsor who was born in Victorian age and was a king, did not wear frock coats on 20th century color photos. And that's 50~60 years ago.

Your best bet would be black or grey slim topcoat with a vest with necktie. And please no wing collared shirt... Wear morning coat on noon and change to tuxedo after 6pm if you want wing collared shirt.
