That is pretty.

True story: The first time I met Will at at my first SFSFMU, he said cream shirts unilaterally look better than white shirts. Then he looked at me and said, "Except on those naturally more tan than your typical San Francisco Caucasian."

Looks legit.

U to the C. Suit looks great.

Don't know about the triple patch + white shirt + wedding tie. (I think that look is a little too sharp / dressy for teh patch.)

But everything fits really well.

Out of curosity, are you the best dressed construction worker or the most hands on developer ever? From your WAYWRN photos, those seem to be the only two options?

Cross post from The Aussie thread:







Shirt is a P Johnson MTM; both suits as well. Tie and PS are Drakes. Shoes are 4-year-old C&J Westfields.

Mickey sticker on mirror belongs to my 4-year old bundle of joy.

I wouldn't call that a wedding tie. That's a casual gingham, no? I do a similar thing in the summer, but with sheppard's check:

CEP, why the points with the square? Also, is the double four in hand knot for function (tie too long) or for the look? If the former I would make it less noticeable. I think your trousers are slightly too tapered. Opening them up a bit I think would just make the fit a bit more balanced because it looks like you have fairly broad shoulders.

When it's black and white and you turn it 45 degrees, you generally call it a wedding tie. The scale on this one is certainly larger than usual but not enough to make it especially casual IMO.

its time to dredge up the navy pants convo again!!!

wore these navy flannels the other day. would gray have been more optimal? probably. but that aside, does the navy work here?



post #11892 of 12603
I don't like it at all actually. Doesn't look right to me. I especially don't like it without cuffs on the trousers, plain is more formal so that exacerbates it. Also, it looks strange the navy tie and the navy pants with that jacket.
post #11893 of 12603
All of the above.

A browish-tan pair of pants with snuff suede shoes may work better with that shirt-tie-jacket combo.

the no cuffs was a tailoring error on my part a while back, and there is not enough fabric to remedy it. dont really have much to say about the rest tho, the navy looks good to my eye, but maybe im off here. thanks, pB and TRINI. noted for future pairings.

that being said, bottom half aside, top block acceptable?

I think fretting about the formality of cuffs in any setting other than black/white tie is getting lost in the SF weeds.
