Nominate the best posts on the forum and (maybe) win a prize - ongoing Front Page contest - Page 8

post #106 of 228
We had an interesting little discussion on ways in which guys who normally wear tailored clothes can go about developing their casual wardrobe. It didn't actually generate any direct advice - some of the conclusions are a little depressing - but I think that's more in acknowledgement of the fact that people need to figure these things out for themselves.

Anyway, this was a nice post by F.Corbera presenting the case for casual tailoring.

Neither am I. I am specifically focusing on (1) dudes in the MC casual thread seeking remedy in (2) the StyFo SW&D subforum.
In the recent casual looks that I like to which I linked above, the SW&D influence is slight or completely absent.
Do I think that an open mind and inquisitive nature is a good thing? Yes.
Do I think that dudes struggling through looking good in the MC casual forum can fix their problems by looking at SW&D threads? Mostly, no.
There is more than sufficient range for an MC casual look to succeed without that, and it is my conjecture that staying close to home is likely to lead to a greater chance of success for the guy who otherwise wears coat and tie.
1. He can wear a casual suit casually without a tie:

2. He can wear an odd jacket without a tie:








3. He can use classic accessories, and casual jackets, shirts and pants:






4. And yes, he can wear jeans:




I mean, I could go on. All these images except the first were once posted on SF, BTW.
The current lack of inspiration does not mean a lack of possibility or the absence from reality. It is just a forum problem, specifically, a Styleforum 2012 problem.
And that is? Not a lot of good posters.

I like the notion that a post that ends with the sentences...

...would be featured on the Front Page.

Yeah I hesitated about that part. Whatever, harsh critique is better than meaningless pats on the head.

Since it's the best "posts," I'll nominate this from mafoofan in the above thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/309586/whnay-s-good-taste-thread/195#post_5634045
This is the kind of post that sparks real discussion like this thread (which is the best of the last few months). Today was the best MC discussion in two years, at least.
