whnay.'s good taste thread - Page 266

^^ hey now ! frown.gif ^^

i think its still a far cry from WAYWRN. sure, its not filled with perfection, but it a place where people are a bit more careful with what they post, and its a good place to get good feedback from people who are proven to have good taste. not to mention, when it gets down to "the best," there is a lot of personal preference involved.

This could get ugly...

Looks great to me - the only comment I would make is a preference on my part for cut away collars with suits rather than sports jackets. I love that colour of jumper.

MoL, i like it. are those dots or circles on the tie, and who is the maker?

We're on the same page

NORE, I think that would look really good if your socks weren't so busy. It clashes with the boldness of the suit.

When I think of good taste I imagine something one might wear to a country club or semi-casual business lunch. Not something that you'd wear for praise from GQ types on the streets of Manhattan or contrarily something from a corporate board room.
I am far from a contributor but as a student from the sidelines the nascent pages of this thread were rife with advice and excellent examples from mafoofan, Manton, etc. I feel as if it has strayed to people asking for advice on outfits that are not nearly "good taste" worthy and it's like WAYWRN pt. 2.

According to my calculations, this thread is about to rise from the sartorial ashes.

Hahaha - I actually saw a young guy this morning with too-loud shoes, etc, and thought to myself "He's definitely on the early arch of the acridsheep SF noob lifecycle." It's a shockingly accurate chart.

I need to spend less time on this forum...

While all the posts here are not elegant, I would cut some slack (or not) based on a distinction on the types of less than elegant posters. That distinction would be those who post to genuinely learn vs. those who post to seek constant approval. That latter gets annoying.

I will now go back to lurking.

I'm just here for the cake. I was told there was plenty.

The posts I find most frustrating are where people are looking for a critique yet post garrish outfits that don't even come close to the seemingly basic sensibilities of these first 50% of this thread. Adding a neon tie or absurd socks to a fit is blatantly not in good taste. There's no need to post it here.

The most beneficial posts here are from the experts who know what they are doing and describe their rationale.

Of nearly the same benefit are the less experienced posters who are dressed within the bounds of good taste to the best of their abilities. I think most lurkers on this thread fit in this category. The critiques from the experts on these fits are very interesting to read since they pick up on a lot of awry details which we can all work on.

I think this is the consistently best educational thread on this forum that I've seen. After learning from this thread then visiting WAYWRN I realize how clownish a lot of fits even there seem.

Anyway, I'll go back to being a lurking troll now. Good day!

Definitely agree with this.

The rate of replies to such posts has diminished, though. Last few times I posted here I got almost no feedback, which kinda sucks since advice from the guys who post in this thread is really, really useful, and personally I think I've come a long way since I began in the world of coat and tie thanks to this advice. But who knows, perhaps it's just that I still fall into the "garrish outfits" category. lol8[1].gif
