Nothing should ever be Madras.

Just stumbled across this thread. A lot of great trousers here (and a few not so great!). Should have posted this here (instead it went into WAYWRN a few days ago):

I'm willing to be proven wrong, but I agree with your second statement.

I like, but I would change for a light blue shirt - this one looks white. Also, the buttoning point on the jacket is high for my tastes, but maybe that's a critique for another thread smile.gif

9 out of 10 times I would have chosen a blue shirt. This time I had been wearing blue shirts for quite a few days in a row and I needed some variety. But point taken!

As for the buttoning point, I agree. One of the drawbacks of being tall is that the buttoning point appears higher than what I think is intended for the cut of the jacket. I have an appointment scheduled with a tailor next month and a new blue odd jacket is my top priority....

Here's another pic I found of one that's being tailored.

There's nothing wrong with having patterned pants. I myself have those in my closet. Just make sure you have the right balance when wearing patterned pants

Hey guys, these are my first patterned pants ever, it was so hard to choose what to wear them with, I'm wearing a standard white t-shirt underneath- please criticize and help! I've just started to be interested in style!

 

Did you win the Michael Stipe look-a-like contest you entered?

Patterned/Tartan trousers look great on the golfcourse. Can't help feeling that patterned trousers would always be trumped by a plain alternative.

This good thread shouldn't die. If it's patterned odd trousers we're talking, the 1840s-1860s are their heyday. These guys make even the 70s' enthusiasm for bold plaids look halfhearted.

Unbelievable, how do you manage to pull this one out of your hat just like that?! My hat -- definitely empty of gorgeous women in madras -- off to you, Sir!

 

(Yes, for this and other reasons this thread deserves to be bumped - do not deny it!)
