whnay.'s good taste thread - Page 744

post #11146 of 12603

Thank you Butler for the elegant pairing of grey jacket with light or medium grey trousers.  We have a mutual friend in Fred Astaire.

 

What interests me about studying photos of style exemplars from the 20th century is that they have ideas about how to dress -- the cut of their clothes, the colors they combine -- that we rarely see today.  They give us new insights about how to dress, especially when we go beyond approving or disapproving of an outfit, and try to understand why they made certain choices in color and cut.  

 

 

Just for fun, a photo of Astaire with Elvis and Frank Sinatra.

It's actually the only cola I drink; though likely as unhealthy as other sodas, the list of ingredients reads like something from the health food shop.

I still haven't finished my stash, but I'm trying: http://www.styleforum.net/t/164384/the-waywt-discussion-thread/90300_100#post_6233206

You ordered 4 pallets?! Christ, that's a lot of cola.

Didn't know they made a cola, and you're right, that's an interesting ingredient list. Luckily wikipedia knows all

They were good enough, not to mindlessly copy, but to learn from.  

 

Besides, any day you're hanging out with Elivs, Sinatra, and Astaire is a good day.

I think I'd like the tie much better on a solid light blue background vs. a bold striped shirt.

not bad at all imo, but i think a thinner stripe would also be great. i have something very similar for tomorrow.

anyhow, i see you have the coveted NMWA poster tie. nice job. smile.gif

I wouldn't choose that shirt, but I think it's in good taste.

That's the mustard tie, not the Calabrese rust one, which I tried to get also but it was sold out even quicker.  I would not have normally chosen that shirt either.  The most fascinating part of this thread is back during the first 40 or so pages when someone, don't remember who, said that the standard stuff was easy to do reasonably well and consistently.  Worsted navy or grey suit, plain shirt, navy tie, something like that.  Then everyone seemed to jump in, ramping up the degree of difficulty.  Fellas like foo, gazman, gdl and some others I can't think of posted patterned odd jackets or suits (remember that stunning brown windowpane suit gazman has) and paired it with patterned accessories.  Whnay experimented with a couple of light ties and light squares.  Then those guys dissected and often disagreed with each other.  fun times
